Waldorf microQxR, for one of the best synthesizers to date, Waldorf microQ series. Faster control and automation access than ever, microQxR takes your Waldorf microQ Lite or microQ into a whole new level in the game! Control the same way you use your VSTi and AudioUnit plug-ins. Connect your Hardware seamlessly into your DAW. microQxR will recall your patch settings when you open your project and the data will be sent to your Waldorf microQ-series automatically once you open your project. The only thing you need to worry, is that you power-up your synth. We also added the ability to load in Waldorf Blofeld and Q patches! (WHAT? Yes!) You can run our plug-in in Mac AudioUnit & VST format and PC VST format (both 32 & 64bit).
Since there are a lot of great software synthesizers in the markets today and because they are so fast to use, we wanted to bring this functionality to every producer out there with microQxR plugin and Waldorf microQ. It is now much faster to scroll thru patches & make edits within your DAW.
The best part is, when you reopen your project, you don’t have to worry about the patch data you had on your synth while producing: Our plugin stores all the data within the project and when you reopen the project, all of the used data gets sent to your hardware, automatically! No more external applications for saving, loading or transferring patch data. Welcome total recall.
