Korg Wavedrum Global Edition Synthesizer

The Korg Wavedrum Global Edition represents the next and most powerful evolution in the Wavedrum family. It boasts the largest palette of cutting-edge sounds of any Wavedrum to date; with sought-after international percussion sounds, a major boost in the quality of each sound, and dramatic improvements in usability. The Wavedrum Global Edition contains 60 DSP algorithms, which enable a variety of synthesis methods: analog, additive, non-linear, physical modeling, etc. Working with these algorithms, users can create various instrument sounds, natural sounds, or purely synthetic sounds -- in addition to the Wavedrum Global Edition's own unique sounds. Certain DSP algorithms allow users to assign a different DSP method and PCM instrument to the head and to the rim. In other algorithms, the velocity and tone of the strike are used to control the PCM sound, delivering an experience rivaling that of an acoustic instrument.


- 2nd Generation Dynamic Percussion Synthesizer that provides unparalleled musical expression
- A sound engine that combines DSP-powered algorithms with PCM sounds to allow versatile and highly flexible performances
- A pressure sensor and multiple pickups capture the subtle nuances of your strikes on the head and rim, generating expressive power and sounds
