Wavestation: The Huge Leap Forward
Originally part of the first Korg Legacy Collection and later the Korg Legacy Collection: Digital Edition the Wavestation is now available individually.


  • 256-note polyphony (Maximum).
  • 1 Part.
  • Over1,400 Preset sounds.
  • 700 PCM Waveforms.
  • 55 Types of on-board effects.

In 1990, the Wavestation introduced the world to both Advanced Vector Synthesis and Wave Sequencing, winning numerous awards and legions of fans. The software addition of a graphic interface and the possibilities of MIDI sync have breathed new life into the Wavestation. The addition of resonant filters is another triumph for the fans of this unique instrument. In addition to the entire series' RAM and ROM banks, the Wavestation adds all the data contained in the six long-sought-after ROM cards for a total of over 1,450 sounds.

Some of these user-made presets work with the vst:

The Paul_WS folder contains a really deep patch called "Poseidon's Pad". It seems to be free, he just asks to be credited if you use it commercially.

Neat double info! Thank you both.

Does anyone know for certain where the factory patches are stored on disk? Is it here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\KORG\KORG Legacy\Presets\WAVESTATION.fxb

Want to make sure I have backup of those someplace handy (as opposed to my regular full machine backups).

No, it is.




All the factory banks of the Legacy collection are in the subdirectories of.


Have fun.

And of course you'll put your own banks (those that you make yourself and those that you buy, download, etc.) in a personal directory. My advice: never place any personal file, even musical banks or patches, in subfolders of "C:\Program files" nor "C:\Program files (x86)". Because these trees may cause problems due to security restrictions of use for the owner.

ALL my VST's are put in subfolders of a totally independent tree, as long as it is allowed by the installation program (here at home my tree for music applications is "C:\!MAO" and for VSTs I have "C:\!MAO\32" and "C:\!MAO\64" but you can name all that as you want). And all their presets are in subfolders of each VST (except of course those automatically put in "C;\ProgramData" or in the "Documents" tree by the installation programs, but these special files are always found by the VST without any problem).

That's curious, the text editor of KVR systematically replaces the backslashes by slashes. That's really bothering...

And it has also a very bad management of the punctuation at the end of the paragraphs.
