ipm's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Wavestation return"

Korg WaveStation
express opinion:
61 notes, good solid keyboard and nice big screen, too few buttons! one outfits made of Outputs 3 pedals, 2 assignable

NO breath! I've rarely seen it (heard actually), including recent machines: it is great and it is built to last, as mine has more than 20 years!

the retroaffichage fails almost mandatory, it is nonetheless quite readable without: basically you can go in if you do not play in the dark, in daylight, it is very readable. but a review is needed quickly enough


Simple config for the selection of the lost after ca is complicated to edit


having gone through a number of machine, my tendency is to limit the number. the Wavestation is one of those mythical elements that I want to keep it, not because it can do everything, but because the sounds which are unique and can customize a mix.

In fact, I find that are simply extraordinary Pad soft and wide. so broad as to place them correctly, we must remove all the same a little korg presence. But it works so well Wavestation

Happiness, happiness and more happiness


value for money: bah frankly the price of one today is worth the price Wavestation 150-250 euros, the price of a new master keyboard ready bit correct.

Considering the amount of machinery produced, it seems normal that prices are particularly low. I jumped at the opportunity to find a cheap and functional

a choice for those seeking meditation sounds "large", almost indispensable.

The Wavestation is considered outdated, hyper typed unusable with other instruments ... I am well persuaded otherwise and the return of the veteran is coming soon:
the Wavestation will make a comeback and make all the guys drool who are working on real VST or VA, it is only a matter of time as there was outdated analog fifteen years

Korg WaveStation
Synthse by wave-vector and squence, 5 octaves-and aftertouch-VLOC
-Pitch, modulation wheel, joystick and more of the famous ...
-4 Audio outputs (jack), headphone jack, 2 jack pedals (sustain. ..) an outlet damper, MIDI in out and through
A bank-ROM 365 waveforms for the Wavestation a little more normal for the "ex", version "two" of the Wavestation, two simultaneous effects ditables and choose from 47 for the normal version and a little more for the version "ex", or in parallle SERIES (flanger, rverbes ,...), sounds are called "performance" patches from their factories even dcoulant waveforms ... (it's a bit complicated to explain in a few lines!), 50 performances are on the ROM and can not be modified, two rams to load or 50 CRER each performance, the scorecards "prog" may contain 50 performances as well (I did not, but can be a seller will give you Wavestation ...), finally with maps containing existing waveform but also have become trs rare find ...
Editor-handy PC and Mac (SoundDiver, etc ...)
Dpend-polyphony in the number of waveforms to use the indoor sound


-Having bought a Wavestation "ex" a few weeks ago, I do not matrise forcment any custom settings! As I understand (I hope!), A sound is made up of either a sequence of waveforms (Fully ditable) or one or more waveforms "simultaneously quot; which changes the shuffled from the joystick or Program The "movement" of the latter, one can CONTRL and the "mix" of diffrent components of a sound. The hardest thing to understand c 'Systm is the waveform that organizes their same patches that combine to give "performances" or (what is meant by pressing a button ...).
-The edition is easy thanks to a system that notch and the menu quite clear, and even easier with a computer editor.
-The manual has two more facicules troisime a version for "ex", they are quite clear and agrments many schmas and drawings.


It is much Wavestation rpute for sounds that voluent long time, like a string sound that turns into white noise in seconds, with a small low-line squence kind derrire. .. Short of grouping of immense use in all styles.
I do not expect too much of a synth raliste it, but the waveforms of existing instruments are not bad ...
-Expression is optimal, thanks to the joystick, the wheel, which can CONTRL lot of paramtre (effects, development of sound components, mix between the components ...)
-Factory sounds are not convincing trs, but banks in sysex Tlcharger allow better viewing opportunities of Bestil.


-I bought a few weeks ago, that's why I think is a little summary.
It CONTRL paramtres of the joystick is glove factory sounds are zero ...
I bought it after the advice of a friend who has for several years and does not it always Sparer ... (Hello alex)
My advice-find version "ex" or expander for ajot effects and waveforms.
-Even if the synth is quite difficult to understand at first, it allows CRER unique sounds rich and evolutive trs

Crystale's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg WaveStation
The keyboard is not great, a little gadget and noisy.
But its potential is in the sound source.


He would need a little more accessible via buttons paramtres DDIS.


The sound is pure, without the slightest trace of breath.
The effects are not a transcendent compartment E4 Platinum, but they are part intgrantes sounds.
Their use is really tailored machine, allowing to go further in the sculpture of sound.
The wave sequencing can make sounds fabulous, voluent time, without even touching the envelope of sound.


This synth is partier of those he must have set in, it is unavoidable.
He never really had a successor.
Sounds that can be really innovative, even today.
Moreover, its sounds are everywhere utiliss by many artists, and are often found in the libraries of CD Samples.

nibla's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg WaveStation
Everything has been said about the characteristics


Config rather simple, it manages to sound terrible fast enough when it comes to dive deeper into the beast is a little hard but entirely possible, even for me who am more used to the old analog beasts ...


In terms of sound, more distinctive you die!

Synth heavy with lots of evolutionary effects of rhythmic notament are grafted onto the basic sound, ambient sounds of all kinds, wavesequences that last for ages, and of course the brilliant legacy of the Prophet VS joystick, which allows variations hyper fine and terrible in a rather experimental ...
on the other hand, the overall tone is VERY 90s, cold enough and accurate and will not match many styles ... to purchase after having tried!

to get an idea of ​​the sounds, (the?) Wavestation has been used a lot in movies and TV series from the early 90's, like X-files, Carpenter's films, music by Eric Serra, etc ... so it's very typical for cons ... it's the best synth for the sounds here!


I use it only for 2 months and I have not made the most of the machine, for sure!

special about this keyboard is really very interesting sound architecture for those who want to immerse themselves in creating new sounds, for against the negative side is that most sounds have a fairly limited use, and it is surprising to most of tripper a sound for himself and to integrate it into a com ...

It is also essential to have other machines in his set, otherwise you will be forced to dial only the music series or ambient-space ...

what is certain is that the dimension of opportunity is ridiculous right now, especially considering that this synth cost a fortune to its release ... at present, for 300-400 euros one finds very easily, so feel free to try it, it's a bargain right now, and will not stay here when the sounds again become fashionable (life, so music is a great cycle. .. it's beautiful)
