Favourite classic 90s synths sounds

The Korg Wavestate Digital 2.0 Wave Sequencing Synthesizer is an advanced performance instrument capable of generating an organic and inspirational new generation of musicians, producers, and composers, taking cues from sources as diverse as modular synths, groove boxes, drum machines and algorithmic composition.

New Sound Generation

The core of Wave Sequencing 2.0 synthesis is that duration, sample and pitch can be assigned to each step of a wave sequence. Timing, sequence, note duration, sequence values and further parameters are summarized under the term "lanes" and can be defined in more detail with loop positions, number of steps and insert point. In interaction with the four envelopes, three LFOs, velocity, modulation wheel and other sources, a complex sound construct is created that cannot be compared with any other synthesizer at present. Within the sequences there is also the possibility to insert coincidences or to modulate the steps from 0-100 percent with probability.

Filter and Effects

In the wavestate, both are not neglected: twelve filter models have been implemented to meet every taste. Included are the Korg classics MS-20 Lowpass and MS-20 Highpass which are much more biting in sound and the powerful, round Polysix filter. There are three effect blocks per layer, which offer various delay algorithms, modulation effects such as phaser or chorus, but also equalizer, compressor and special effects. The whole thing is rounded off by the higher-level reverb effect.

Ready for stage or studio

A pair of balanced line-level outputs ensures the Wavestate sounds fantastic even over long cable runs, and a headphone output is available for personal monitoring too — perfect for late-night sound design sessions. DIN MIDI ports are present for connecting with other MIDI-compatible hardware, and class-compliant USB MIDI is available for integrating with your computer. Speaking of which, we highly recommend downloading the free Wavestate Librarian software from Korg — it's the perfect way to manage your custom patches, create Set Lists, and much more.

Main features:
  • Brings the iconic wave sequencing architecture of the original Wavestation synth into the 21st century
  • Wave Sequencing 2.0 architecture with four simultaneous sound layers and 64 stereo voices of polyphony
  • Four sound layers can be blended in real time via Vector Joystick, with three dedicated effects per layer
  • Total of 14 simultaneous effects for extravagant sonic excitement
  • "Lanes" provide unique ways to manipulate pitch, sample duration, gate times, step sequencer values, and much more
  • Four onboard arpeggiators, one per layer
  • Eight programmable Mod knobs give you custom access to whatever parameters you'd like to tweak most often
  • Ample hands-on control over practically all parameters
  • Vast modulation potential, with multiple "Lanes" that can manipulate your sounds on a per-step basis
  • Modulation processors allow you to re-shape mod signals using quantization, curvature, smoothing, and more
  • Large (2GB) sample library, over 1,000x the size of the original Wavestation library
  • Includes sample content from Korg's KROME, KRONOS, and a custom bank from Plugin Guru
  • Includes modeled MS-20 lowpass/highpass filters, and modeled Polysix lowpass filter
  • Dice button randomizes all parameters for instant sonic exploration
  • Set Lists and Smooth Transitions make it easy to organize and manage your sounds for live performance
  • 37 full-size keys balance playability and portability
