Essential

Korg WaveStation ExPublished on 10/30/12 at 14:19
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
5-octave keyboard correct, solid and identical to all of the Korg range and then.
Not many share buttons, joystick mixing sounds, it looks like the X3, T1, M1, ...

UTILIZATION

Necessarily with the small screen in 1990, there are menus but we made it because the architecture is the same Korg.

SOUNDS

A Wavestation, it was for the sound. The fashion of the time, you will find it delightfully kitsch or revolutionary for its time, or both. In any case, the WS has marked his time and sounds are still used sparingly and inimitable (except with the Korg Legacy plug-in).
Outputs, often as Korg, have a great dynamic.

OVERALL OPINION

A synth history that I sold to resume a rack version with all banks SR origins.
Of course, this is but it sounds dated 90 and it is a synth history.
All had a passionate or have a soft or hard in. The price of secondhand, must jump when they are in good condition (backlight and knobs to verify).

The pleasure of the vector synthesis

Korg WaveStation ExPublished on 02/29/12 at 07:13
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
5 octave synthesizer Polyphonic 32 channels using the Vector Synthesis by joystick or by creating wave sequencing.

UTILIZATION

We must make the effort to address a lot of hours of programming this synth and understand the benefits of vector synthesis (inaugurated some years earlier on the PROPHET VS).
It is awarded for such work by the wealth of sounds that can create and modify.

SOUNDS

Factory programmed sounds are already amazing!
The creative possibilities of sound and wave sequences are almost unlimited, especially with the large number of available effects.
Attacks are free on percussive and brass but where the KORG WS-EX excels is in ground and ethereal sounds ...

OVERALL OPINION

I used it from 1992 until 2009, when I stole it ...
With experience, certainly I would do the same choice.
NB: only downside: loss of brightness of the LCD monochrome backlit after a few years (it is still readable).

My first synth

Korg WaveStation ExPublished on 02/18/12 at 23:42
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
5 octave synthesizer.
A summary incredible, a little hard to master ...

UTILIZATION

There is even a small sequencer!

SOUNDS

In a very large wealth. You can even filter simulations raisonnants!

OVERALL OPINION

Always used since 1992.
Equipment that is aging worse than my K2000:
pbs screen, keys that work less well and keyboard that gets harder.
