Waldorf Microwave II
The Microwave II released in 1997 was largely viewed as a modest yet welcome improvement of the original with some caveats depending on your synth philosophy. The unit remained a 2 space 19 inch rack mount instrument with 4 quick edit knobs below the LCD screen. The polyphony was increased to 10 voices. Patch memory was also increased to 256 rom and 128 for ram. A major difference is the Microwave II's user interface is all DSP as opposed to the original featuring analog VCF and DCA's.
