Waldorf has announced the official discontinuation of its desktop analog “aggressive” mono synth Pulse 2, with three oscillators and more.

Hardware synthesizers can’t stay around forever. It often has to give way to a new version, there is a lack of resources to maintain it properly, or there is not enough interest to continue it.

Waldorf has today announced the discontinuation of the Pulse 2 analog Synthesizer. Introduced in 2013 as the successor to the popular, characterful Pulse, it is now finished 10 years later. It is not known how Waldorf made this decision.

Press Release

It’s always sad when we have to say goodbye to one of our favorite technical devices. In this case we are talking about one of the best synthesizers that first saw the light of day in 1995 and has inspired many music producers and musicians to this day.

This device was one of the pioneers in the world of music production, offering many possibilities to create unique and innovative sounds. It has helped many artists to turn their musical visions into reality.

The fact that this synthesizer was reissued and improved in 2013 shows that it was and still is relevant and sought after after almost two decades later. Many users have requested that the unit be available again, and it has subsequently been updated with the latest technologies and features to offer even more possibilities.

We would also like to thank all the satisfied customers who use this device constantly and create great music with it..
