Korg Wavestate MKII Wave Sequencing Keyboard Synthesizer

With more voices, more sample space, and an updated look, Wavestate MkII delivers deep modulation, evolving rhythmic textures, and never-before-heard sounds.

The Korg Wavestate MKII Wave Sequencing Synthesizer uses Korg's legendary wave sequencing synthesis to deliver a staggering collection of ever-evolving sounds, textures, and rhythms that are organic, and vastly explorable. This version of Wavestate elevates the popular synth, increasing the number of voices (96 stereo voice polyphony), personal sample space (4GB), and boasting a refreshed look with a unique color accent.

Wave sequencing 2.0 rhythmically changes samples, control values, effects, and more in real time, to create sounds and passages that are ever evolving in motion. Deep modulation capabilities, loads of sounds, multi effects, and plenty of polyphony (96 notes).

With the Wavestation, each step of a Wave Sequence had a duration, a sample, and a pitch. This created ear-catching patterns -- but the patterns repeated the same way, over and over. What if they could evolve in organic, unexpected ways, instead of just repeating?

Wave Sequencing splits apart the timing, the sequence of samples, and the melody, so that each can be manipulated independently. Also added are 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.

Bursting with knobs and controllers, the Wavestate invites you to explore. All of the basics-filter, envelopes, LFOs, effects-are at your fingertips with dedicated front-panel controls. Eight programmable Mod Knobs read more are customized to bring out the most in every sound, often taking them in entirely new directions. Use the knobs in realtime performance, and also save the results as new sounds. Add in the Pitch Bend and Modulation Wheels and the unique Vector Joystick, and you'll always have multiple dimensions of realtime expression.

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!
