The Sledge 2.0 is Studiologic's updated 8 voice virtual analogue polysynth. Studiologic are well known for their well designed keyboards, however to get the fantastic on-board sounds they turned to Waldorf who have a history and experience creating fantastic sounding synths. This collaboration proved to be a hit, with the great feel and build quality, with a new warm sounding synth engine from waldorf.
The whole ethos behind the Sledge is that you get full hands on control of all the parameters like a classic synth, as many modern synths hide parameters behind endless menus. It has a large format classic synthesizer panel with one knob per function. Sledge 2.0 introduces new features and sound innovations that make it hugely versatile, thanks to a mix of pure synthesis and sound sampling.
Auto Dual Mode, mix the sound
Combine and play two sounds at the same time, in Split or Layer mode. Every sound combination can be stored in any of the 999 available presets.
Hold the loop and pitch the sound
Pitch and Hold functions can be enabled separately for the Lower and Upper sounds in Dual Mode, allowing you to keep the sample loop running while playing the upper sound.
Let your samples play
Sound samples and new waves can be loaded in the internal memory, played by OSC 1 and modifiable by all parameters of the control panel, adding other oscillators, setting filters, envelopes and effects.
Sledge Spectre & Sound Mapper
Create and transfer Sample content, manage and reorganize the internal sound library of your Sledge. Load, save, copy, send, receive. Everything you want to do with your sound library, you can do that thanks to a user-friendly interface.
