Not bad but could have/should have been better built
Robert7183, 20.07.2020
This is good value for money for this revamp of a novel technology but I for one would have happy to pay twice the price for this instrument for a better quality build, wider keyboard with aftertouch, a better display etc. This technology deserves better but I guess Korg reason that selling loads of units at a reasonable price is better than selling a lot less at a higher price.This will sell by the boatload and rightly so because it does a lot for the money and is a welcome change from the cheap as chips analog synths that have flooded the market in recent years. It is way easier to program than the original wavestation but its still quite complex and will require patience.
The presets are quite good and it is quite easy to do a few edits and end up with something new. It really needs a decent manual/user guide and sadly you wont be getting one in the box. The one online isnt up to much either. If you want to progam it and you have a short attention span or are impatient then this probably isnt the machine for you.

Other than that its great and thanks to Korg for bringing this one back to life. My original went to heaven after about 10 years. I had a wavestation SR desktop which had a 2 line display and overheating issues ( internal power and no fan!). I dont see that happening to this one. The only way this could die is that is so light that you could easily knock it off an instrument stand.

A beast of a sequencer
Pealler, 31.01.2021
I am using this beast in different concert setups and it does a lot for me. There are some things that this can't do, but adding a crazy amount of modulations to almost any parameter is not one of them. Also, the samples are high quality and sound amazing! I have no problem with it being built out of plastic. The front part is metallic and does a lot to make you feel that this is not a cheap instrument.

Korg Wavestate is a deep, powerful synthesizer on its own league. Wavesequencing is a powerful concept, especially having timing, pitch, sample, shape and so forth as a separate lane from each other (call it a separate sequence lines if you like) allows you to create evolving sequences rapidly. Combined with numerous modulation capabilities, 4 different layers with their respective fx slots, envelopes, lfos, sequencers and so on, making it a device that has endless sonic capabilities. The hardware itself is lightweight but very well built. Even though most of the functions can be reached through out the hardware interface, certain changes or selections can only be made by menu diving. The sound quality is very impressive. Most of the samples are meticulously selected. However not being able to import your own samples in it doesn't make much sense in this age. I hope Korg will bring that function in the future updates.

Great for movie composers
bennyblanco, 24.03.2021
This is really a lovely sounding synth, it has so vast potential and possibilities to manipulate the sound. Great samples in it as well. The only thing that I don’t really like is how plastic the surface is, it is more stable and solid on the Minilogue XD.
