Randy Diakur on facebook said "Hi there - I recently contacted Waldorf support on exactly this question. Their response was they pulled back 1.23 because of sample transfer issues. They said they were working on a fix and would release 1.24. (No time frame was mentioned, though.) So if you have the SL license like I do, you might want to wait for 1.24." So best to wait for 1.23.

Saw this on Facebook Randy Diakur said " Hi there - I recently contacted Waldorf support on exactly this question. Their response was they pulled back 1.23 because of sample transfer issues. They said they were working on a fix and would release 1.24. (No time frame was mentioned, though.) So if you have the SL license like I do, you might want to wait for 1.24." So I'd stick with 1.22 and wait till 1.24 comes out.

From what I understand the team at Waldorf is quite small. So they come back to the blofeld every now and then for updates. It's pretty amazing they update it all since it was released so long ago so I'm thankful for that. Reports are the sync is better. I don't sync to computer so you may want to ask out on https://www.facebook.com/groups/8492783249/.

Google translate to English before I reply... "So, in the time in the Microsoft hangs up 4 new Windoze versions, Walldorf has managed just on 1:23 ... which are either very conservative with the allocation of version numbers or very slow ... I'm considering just buying a Blowfelds and wonder whether MIDI sync now works for Arps and filters?"
