Manufacturer Description:

At the 2015 NAMM Show, Studiologic introduced Sledge 2.0 – an updated
version of its vintage-inspired digital keyboard that offers a lot more
synth for less money.



With Sledge 2.0, Studiologic and Waldorf Labs (working as a team) have
made it more flexible as a pure synthesizer, added Dual mode for
Split/Layer functions, introduced support for user samples, expanded the
instrument’s polyphony from 8 notes to 24 and improved its effects
engine.



Sledge 2.0 Key Features:

Auto Dual mode: Sledge 2.0 can now play two sounds at the same time,
in Split or Layer mode; the feature is controlled by a new page of the
Global function and allows to simply keep one note (for Split) or more
notes (for Layer) and then select a new sound, that will be added to the
previous sound; as any other sound, also Dual Sound combinations can be
permanently stored in any of the 1.000 available presets;



Sample Player: sound samples and new waves can be loaded in the
internal 60 megabyte of Flash memory, played by OSC 1 and modifiable by
all parameters of the control panel, adding other oscillators, setting
filters, envelopes and effects. This feature can constantly expands the
instrument’s sounds and create a totally new combination of synthesis
and sampling.



Pitch & Hold controls: a new Global page allows to enable the
Pitch and the Hold separately for the Lower and Upper sounds in Dual
Mode, allowing to use the Pitch bend on the Upper sound (i.e. for solo
parts) and the Hold pedal to control only the Lower (to keep playing a
Drums groove or as a Damper for a Piano sound) and vice versa, or to
enable Pitch Bend and Hold on both Upper and Lower sounds;



Reverb+Delay: a new function allows to mix both effects; the Reverb
keeps the setting previously selected, while the real time controls
(time and level) allows to set the parameters of Delay also when mixed.



Enhanced Polyphony: the total maximum number or notes that can be
played at the same time have been expanded to 24, allowing to get a
better real time control over the new sound possibilities obtainable
from synthesis and sampling together.



Sledge Spectre: samples can be edited (keyboard range, tuning and
other parameters) and transmitted to Sledge 2.0 by the USB port, with a
sample editor that allows to first load and play the samples on your
Computer and then download them into the instrument’s memory.
