Hi blofeld user! :)

This pack is containing:
- converted Studiologic SLEDGE2 patches for Waldorf blofeld in .mid format in the MID folder;
- converted Studiologic SLEDGE2 patches for Waldorf blofeld in .syx format in the SYX folder;
- original Studiologic SLEDGE2 patches as they are downloaded from the internet;

You can load them directly into your blofeld - in this case your original patches are gone!
You can use a patch editor/librarian to audition/select/write the patches you like!

The SLEDGE is not blofeld! Deffinitelly not!
Nore the sysex format is very similar there is big differencies between the two synthesizers...
For example:
SLEDGE blofeld
#of OSC: 2 3
WT OSC: 1 2
Wavetables: 2 more then two ;)
#of filters: 1 2
PPG filter: none yes
Ring modulation: none yes
FX1&2 engine: different FX types and parameters
etc...

So, when you just rewrite the device ID in the SLEDGE's sysex files and load them into the blofeld, there is a lot of unuseless sound. But when you correct the differencies (for example: the FX types/parameters; noise level -> ring mod level, etc...) you will get a lot of oldschool synth sounds!

[How to rewrite SLEDGE ID to blofeld ID in a sysex?
Use an hex editor. Open the original SLEDGE syx file, then exchange any instance of that "F0 3E 15 00 10" to that: "F0 3E 13 00 10" Save the file, then you can handle it as a blofeld sysex file...]

I did the necessary changes on the patches in first round. Then I did try to normalize the volumes and the mod matrix values.

These patches are not sound exactly same as in SLEDGE! These patches as looks like like "SLEDGE influenced patches!" I keep the original names, so if you enough lucky to have both of these great synthesizers, you can compare the two kind of sounds and you can tweak a more closer version! If you do that, please share your version for free as I did.

My blofeld does not have LicenseSL - so the SLEDGE patches what are using sample I did not converted/used! Anyway these SLEDGE patches are in the SLEDGE folder so if you have enough time/ability you can try them too...
