Please review the Korg Wavestate


     
The Kork Wavestate is a digital wave sequencing synth built around the same idea as the 1990s Korg Wavestation, but with much more hands on and knobs. If you are into making movie scores, and complex lush sound tracks, then nothing beats this synth. Period. You can create incredibly complex sound sequences that seamlessly morph into one other, loop, and morph into endless shimmers, it sounds absolutely incredible. With a 64-voice polyphony, four envelopes, four LFOs, and 14 effects, the possibilities are truly endless. The Wavestate also has MS-20 and Polysix filters (as well as others) modeled after the real thing and very convincing too. If this synth were analog it would cost well over $10,000 and would be in back order for months, but it isn't analog, and at some point we all need to set aside the analog vs. digital debate and listen to instrument. Analog synths do sound softer, and may have a better bottom end, but this synth while being all digital is truly incredible and sounds glorious, thick where it needs to be and has certainly secured a spot in the synthesizers hall of fame. We can rave about this synth for many paragraphs but the best way to experience it is either go to your local music store, or click on the Youtube icon to watch and listen to this wonder full synth.
