Waldorf microQ Editor Intro

Waldorf microQ Editor & Librarian is designed to control your Waldorf microQ right from your DAW. With our Editor, you can work with your Waldorf microQ by the same way you use your virtual instrument plug-ins. Our Editor will recall your patch settings when you open your project and the data will be sent to your microQ automatically once you open your project. Your synthesizer is always synchronized with your session! The only thing you need to worry, is that you power-up your synthesizer. We also added the ability to load in Waldorf Blofeld and Q patches! (WHAT? Yes!)

Faster workflow

Waldorf microQ Editor brings hardware integration to modern Digital Audio Workstation environments. Waldorf microQ Editor & Librarian plug-in works seamlessly with all Waldorf microQ Keyboard / Waldorf microQ Rack synthesizers.

It is now much faster to scroll thru sounds and make tweaks within your DAW. Automate parameters with real hardware control names. The best part is, our Editor saves 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 waiting with loading or transferring hardware data. Save time – welcome Total Recall.

  • Control Waldorf microQ / microQ lite synthesizer directly from your DAW.
  • Automate almost every parameter directly from your DAW.
  • No need to remember CC’s for each knobs / per synthesizer. Goodbye sticky notes!
  • Load, Edit and Store patches into hardware memory or in your HDD personal library.
  • Store any Waldorf microQ / Q / Blofeld compatible soundset in your HDD library folder and browse it from our plugin.
  • Send banks or individual patches from librarian to hardware.
  • Request banks or individual patches from hardware to librarian.
  • Total Recall: When you reopen your project, all of the data used in it, will be sent to the hardware, automatically!

Check Specifications tab for more info about the Editor capabilities.

Realistic Bi-directional Graphical User Interface

Our graphical user interface design has been made to make everything from sound design to patch editing as smooth as possible. When you move a slider, push a button or twist a knob in your hardware, software will respond at appropriate layer/part.

Use sections locks with Randomizer function to create complex sounds while keeping the best settings untouched.

Save time, as all the edits are stored within the project, so once the project is opened up again, Total Recall will send the data to hardware automatically.

Patch and Multi mode management

Waldorf microQ Editor comes with ability to control all 16 parts from the single plug-in instance. This means, you can have a different patches on different layers and play them at the same time, or individually.

 

You can send patches from Patch Librarian to your selected Part:

  • Click any PART and double click a patch on the librarian to send the patch to the selected part.
  • Click different PART to send another patch for different part, simple as that!

 

Waldorf microQ Editor and Automation

With FULL version of Waldorf microQ Editor & Librarian, you can automate almost every parameter right from your DAW without having to remember all of the MIDI CC’s.This can be done easily by setting your DAW automation to Write or Latch mode and then turning the knob from the hardware or the plug-in.

Some of the SysEx parameters are not available due to a lot bandwidth taken from the MIDI cable.

Check DAW Config Guides tab below to learn more about DAW Automation.

    Waldorf microQ series | Waldorf microQ
  • MIDI interface (cheap interfaces will not work).

    The ability to ‚’learn‚’ midi input to pots and switches (rightclick on pot maybe?) would be a dream. Only reason I gave 4 and not 5 stars. I use it every day.

    Great software, works well. Although for some reason I always need to turn the ‘Local On’ on the plugin off, otherwise there’s a feedback loop which happens when I send MIDI to the MicroQ.

    Unfortunately I had an awful experience… May be is just the combination of my hw/sw integration but no luck to have a stable workflow. No suport from Mistery Islands unfortunately (except opening tickets)…no chance to have fun using the microQ plugin aside the firts days of enthusiasm. Issues with randomization, with saving preset or recall presets, with ‘auto-reset’ of parameters while editing a sound, etc. My suggestion is to test as much as you can the demo version before considering to buy the plugin. Test the stability and meke the right balance between issues and what your gonna be doing with the plugin and what kind of use you expect to do….then decide if buy or not to buy. At this point, I wouldn’t buy it again…..better to buy a good Moog App for iPad instead…you’ll get much more fun, much less frustration. Finger crossed for new updates from seller….

    Since the death of SoundDiver some of my rack synths have been seriously neglected and almost forgotten. Since discovering the microQXR I have fallen in love with my little yellow beast again. Super cool GUI and makes programming a joy. Having total recall in my DAWs has made it very easy to have my hardware integrated into projects. The customer support has been amazing from Jani and I look forward to future releases.

    What a great find this plug in was! My lonely old neglected microQ has rejoined my studio setup, as qXr has made it so easy to use it. I forgot how much I love the sound of this little yellow beast.

    Have not been able to get my micro Q editor out of demo mode. I can not figure out how to get it registered. I’ve followed these instructions. https://mysteryislands-music.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/KB/pages/3637370/Register+plug-in+with+license.key Open the plug-in in DAW and go to Librarian page. Click ‘bank edit menu -> register plug-in..’. A new window will appear, asking you to locate the license.key. Find the license.key and click ok. So I’m looking in the ‘Patch Librarian’ Tab as shown below (Is this the ‘Librarian page’?) I see a ‘Bank Edit’ button (is this the ‘bank edit menu’?) But I don’t see a ‘register plug-in’ option in there. Am I in the right place? How do I register?

    The qXr-Editor is another masterpiece of programming work.
    As I‘m also using the two other Synth editors (for VIRUS and Roland JP), the Waldorf Q
    is now very easy to handle.
    I strongly recommend this product for every Q-owner.
