Device Overview

Name/Version: Waldorf Blofeld Editor 1.22
Author: PatrickDSP  
Description: Standalone & M4L Editor for the Waldorf Blofeld Desktop or Keyboard Synth.

Watch the demonstration video here:


- bi-directional control of every parameter of the Blofeld (which are many!)
- full sysex support in Ableton live without an external router!
- randomiser and initialiser per module
- patch mutator (allows for mutating current values by percentage)
- editor updates to hardware (including patch name!)
- choose midi in and out ports.
- set a new patch name from within the editor using your keyboard
- load and save patches from and to your hard drive from within the editor
- load a random patch from the Blofeld (one of the 1024 patches)
- create a dirty patch name at the press of a button (3600 possible swearing combinations included!)
- free updates for life


The standalone editor for windows needs the Max Runtime which is available for free here:
And obviously if you plan on using the max for live plugin, max for live is needed (which is included in Ableton Suite 9)

WINDOWS: Just copy the whole folder containing the .exe somewhere, and launch the .exe. You can NOT rename any files, or it won't work.
MAC: Just copy .app to your applications folder, and launch it. You can NOT rename the .app, or it won't work.
M4L: read the enclosed readme file for additional information and just drag the .amxd file onto a midi channel in ableton. Additional Java scripts need to be installed from the supplied download links in the readme file. Please read the readme file first.

Great device. Works like a charm on my win7 Ableton9.


does it work flawlessly with multis too? like putting one on each track playing a part of the multi. i need to know please.

hello and bought the Blofeld editor and the link you sent me wrong, I get error

According to your email to us, everything worked fine and you even thanked us in Spanish. Please reply back to the support email if you need assistance. We can't offer support on all the 3rd party sites this patch is listed on. Thanks.

Hi, nice editor, but can't save patches? How to recall a patch when open the project on Live? I push the "send" button but all are weird. Thanks.


Did you solve your problem?
Because I also have exactly same problem like you..

Doesn't work at all in Ableton Live for Mac. Wouldn't give money back.

Just downloaded it and on my Mac MBP Retina the low part of the GUI is not accessible... The GUI is to big ! Any solution, please ?
