Waldorf Q Editor Intro

Waldorf Q Editor & Librarian is designed to control your Waldorf Q right from your DAW. With our Editor, you can work with your Waldorf Q 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 Q 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 microQ patches! (WHAT? Yes!)

Faster workflow

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

With FULL version of Waldorf Q 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.

Operating system specified settings / limits:

Windows limitations

Since Windows platform CAN NOT share resources between applications, it is important that you disable the MIDI input and output from your DAWs settings which you are intending to use with our Editor. If you leave the port open, our Editor will see it and once you click to use it, it might crash your DAW and you will lose your data. Link down below!

macOS limitations

macOS works “out from the box” with resource sharing, you are good to go once you insert the plugin into your DAW. However, our plugin can cause you a MIDI loop if you leave the port open / unfiltered from your hardware to your DAW. You can set various filters in your DAW.


  • Waldorf Q-series Synthesizer.
    Q Rack, Q & Q+ Keyboard | Q & Q+ Phoenix Edition
  • MIDI interface (cheap interfaces will not work).
  • macOS 10.6 or later with AudioUnit or VST host.
  • Windows XP or later with VSTi 2.4 compliant host.
