    This review kindly written by Tony Long. You can read more reviews like this, along with Tony's productions at his personal site -> Tony Long Music

    INTRODUCTION TO THE WALDORF BLOFELD

    Despite its small size and price the Waldorf Blofeld synthesizer module, I am told has an extremely powerful synth engine.
