Waldorf’s untimely demise in early 2004, brought a tear to many synthesists eye or even ear (if that were possible). The last product being their AFB16 monster analog filter bank, at $2495 it may have been out of the reach of many. However their Q series synthesizers and Attack Percussion synth have held their value and been much in demand. So perhaps the news that the intellectual properties behind Waldorf synthesizers and the Waldorf brand name were bought by Waldorf SL, a company founded by Joachim Flor and Kurt "Lu" Wangard. The new Waldorf Music GmbH is currently being founded, together with Stefan Stenzel, Frank Schneider, Michael von Garnier, and Wilfried Eckl. Waldorf’s website goes on to say: Joachim Flor had the initial idea of forming the new Waldorf GmbH. Joachim has accompanied Waldorf from the very beginning, and as sales representative, contributed considerably to the success of Waldorf products. Kurt "Lu" Wangard steered Waldorf through long periods of ups and downs as Office Manager, and he is determined to lead the new shiny battleship into a brilliant future. Stefan Stenzel, formerly Director of Research and Development of Waldorf, is responsible for future innovative Waldorf technologies, together with Frank Schneider, co-founder of Waldorf Electronics and former Production Manager. They both supported the starving Waldorf community through the dark ages, which are now history, and are committed to working on new exciting projects for the freshly ventured Waldorf Music. Michael von Garnier and Wilfried Eckl are contributing their overwhelming experience and knowledge of distribution and marketing, forming the ideal complement to the ambitious team with high-flying objectives. Curious? Perfect! The new Waldorf Team
