One of my fave synths
Tomhazy 29.12.2021
This synth is amazing! And with the option to load my own multisamples, it's become my gig synth of choice: Portable, with a pretty nice keybed, and with the same sounds I programmed in the studio!
And I have to admit I love the randomise function more than expected!


Great Product By Korg!
KORG Wavestate 22.09.2022
As an owner of the Korg Opsix & now Wavestate,
I must say I am glad I own each of these synthesizers as they compliment and complete the suggested systems for dynamic sound design and music creation.

Although Flagship synthesizers offer similar features, the Wavestate is highly versatile and provides much more room for details & dynamics that most arrangers and workstations limit.

One can use a synth such as Wavestate to construct cutting edge sound while freeing up resources and tracks in their sequencers or DAWs.

The sounds created are very modern and evolving. One can tell Korg was not careless in creating such a product. As with any product, adequate time, dedication, patients, & discipline in learning the tools of this product will surely catapult one into better sound utilization and music creation.

The only disappointment is that being such a great product, it is very light-weight and all plastic. Great companies like korg should consider using higher quality and heavy duty products like the Hydrasynth. I feel It would better encourage those who transport their equipment for live performances to consider using such devices in the field knowing they would be housed in a body with and incredible brain. -You will not be disappointed in the purpose of this product otherwise.

I am a USA buyer and every transaction with Thomann has been flawless and one can trust this retailer.

Keep up the great work!
Thank You.


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.

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.
