Waldorf Q : Upgrade to a Q+

Anyone here owned both a Waldorf Q and a Q+

Is it worth the upgrade cost for the analogue filters?

Might be able to get my hands on an original red Q+, but would have to sell my blue Q to pay for it....

Thoughts/comments would be cool.

Whats a decent rate for a Q+ these days?

I can't tell you if it's "worth it", but I can tell you the analog filters sound very nice and much better than the digital on pretty much anything, including with low resonance, and especially with high resonance.

Yes i saw that Q+ that you're talking about... looks absolutely stunning. no doubt it would be a very nice synth, pity i have never had any relations with one.

Well dfegadoncloud9 ebay ripoff flipper had one for $3,200.00 .
I think he got the on LA craigslist for $1,200.00 along with every other
synth he flips. I see em on craigslist I call but there gone and next thing you know oncloud9 has it at a jacked up price buy it nowfuuck

Anyway IMO not worth 3,200.00 but if you get a good deal go for it..thumbsup

I hear the Q+'s are a bit buggy. But a lot of people say the Qs are buggy, but i have one and it's been solid as hell. So who knows. Unfortunately, i need to sell mine =o[

It's the black Phoenix Edition Q+'s that had issues with their filter section. The ruby red ones are rock solid.

Sorry to hear that you need to sell your Q :(
