Korg's legendary Wavestation introduced the world to Wave Sequencing, transforming raw samples into sounds that no-one had ever heard before. The flagship OASYS and KRONOS keyboards developed Wave Sequencing even further, expanding on its unique palette of lush, evolving pads and driving rhythms. Now, Korg is proud to announce the next step in digital synthesis: the wavestate. Featuring the radically re-imagined Wave Sequencing 2.0, the wavestate delivers astonishing, ever-changing sounds with extensive hands-on control. Far from a nostalgic reissue, the wavestate is designed from the ground up for a new generation of musicians, producers, and composers, taking cues from sources as diverse as modular synths, groove boxes, and algorithmic composition. The compact form-factor, with 37 full-size keys, transports easily and fits neatly into any stage, studio, or desktop setup.

Wave Sequencing 2.0
Wave Sequencing 2.0 splits apart the timing, the sequence of samples, and the melody, so that each can be manipulated independently. Also added are new characteristics including shapes, gate times, and step sequencer values. Each of these is a "Lane," and each Lane can have a different number of steps and its own start, end, and loop points. Every time the sequence moves forward, the individual Lanes are combined to create the output. For instance, a sample may be matched with a different duration, pitch, shape, gate length, and step sequence value every time that it plays. You can modulate each Lane's start, end, and loop points separately for every note, using velocity, LFOs, envelopes, Mod Knobs, or other controllers. Each note in a chord can be playing something different!

64 Stereo Voices
Totaling in the gigabytes, the wavestate's sample library is more than a thousand times larger than that of the original Wavestation. That's a lot of great-sounding raw material for Wave Sequences. There's a bank of samples from Plugin Guru, brand-new samples from Korg, and a selection from the Kronos and Krome libraries. Of course, KORG also provides all of the Wavestation's samples (including all options), plus a huge library of Wavestation Wave Sequences. Play up to 64 stereo voices with pristine clarity, using Korg's proprietary anti-aliasing sample playback technology.

Modeled Filters
Add vintage character to your sounds with the aggressive MS-20 Lowpass or Highpass filters, or the strong, sweet Polysix Lowpass. Shape and refine with a full collection of resonant 2-pole and 4-pole Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass, and Band Reject filters. Or, step outside the box with Korg's unique Multi-Filter, which creates modulatable blends of multiple modes simultaneously.

Awesome sound, hard to program


Hard to program, but sounds AWESOME. If you're running windows 10, beware, doesn't play nicely with certain updates. I was unable to get their librarian software working because this synth is not standard Midi Compliant USB.



Would buy again


Great product



Trying to get my head around it


Interesting instrument ,pretty good sound quality and and sound choices although I'm still learning all it can do. Build quality is fair and no aftertouch a minus but all in all a lot of fun
