Quantum & Iridium Presets

Most Waldorf Quantum and Iridium owners know this, but for clarity – the Quantum and Iridium synthesizers share the same presets, occasionally with small tweaks to account for the filter differences between them.

Presets may include non-factory wavetables and/or samples.

VA Pads
$19

243Mb of stereo samples recorded from a variety of virtual analogue (VA) hardware synthesisers collected over the course of the last twenty years.

VA Pads is a collection of 16 of pad patches.
