Waldorf nw1 specs leaked on web


Today we’ve seen a short video about some of the new releases expected for Waldorf, probably for NAMM 2015. Everybody seemed curious and surprised about the new eurorack module nw1 on video, so I’ve been tinkering around Waldorf web page until I’ve found, hidden, the link with the specs:
