Quantum/Iridium Presets

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.

Cinematic World

Set contains 11 complex “cinematic sequences”. By using both layers and several parameter tracks in the sequencer simultaneously very dynamic and atmospheric soundscapes are created. These can be played with one key and are great for creating a complete song. You can also let them run quietly in the background.

Tim Shoebridge

A collection of fifty five carefully curated presets that provide an excellent starting point for writing your own scores. Sounds include complex evolving pads, organic bells and plucks, but also simpler sampled sounds such as pianos, vocals and strings.

VA Pads

243Mb of stereo samples recorded from a variety of virtual analogue (VA) hardware synthesisers collected over the course of the last twenty years. VA synths tend to have high polyphony and multi-timbrality, more oscillators, waveforms, LFO’s, EG’s, filter modes and master effects than equivalent analogue poly synths, and this makes VA synths great for creating lush, rich pad patches. VA Pads is a collection of 16 of pad patches.
