I also never wrapped my head around why sometimes the wavesequence is greyed out .
I thought I explained this. Will give it another go:
In your first screenshot, you have two oscillators with single PCM waves selected for each. Therefore, the patch has no wave sequences in it, so the Wave Sequence edit button is disabled.
In the second screenshot, the first oscillator has a Wave Sequence selected, as indicated by the 0-31 range of waves, which are always Wave Sequences for that RAM bank, and the asterisk to the left of the Wave Sequence name. As a Wave Sequence is chosen for at least one of the oscillators, the button to edit that Wave Sequence is enabled.
You might want to re-read my previous postings if that's not clear. I think you're thinking about this wrong. If you select a PCM number of 32 or above, you have selected a single PCM wave for that oscillator to play. If you have selected a wave number lower than 32, you have selected a Wave Sequence for that oscillator to play - and can access the edit functions...
So, RAM1 Waves 0-31 are the Wave Sequences for that RAM1 bank, and Waves 32 and up are single PCM waves from that bank (there are no PCM waves in RAM banks, of course, but the main ROM bank contains both Wave Sequences and the internal PCM waves).
Hopefully that clarifies things, if not let me know and I'll try to be more explicit...
For reference, when you choose a "Wave" for an oscillator, the available choices for the oscillators are [deep breath!]:
- ROM4-ROM10 0-31 - Wave Sequences from the WS SR ROM banks 4-10 respectively
- ROM11 0-31 - Wave Sequences in the WS ROM bank (original Wavestation ROM)
All Wave Sequences will have a wave number between 0-31 and an asterisk to the left of their name to indicate they are Wave Sequences, not single PCM waves.
Any Wave numbers from any ROM bank from 32-515 are the internal single PCM Waves (original Wavestation waves). They do not have an asterisk to the left of their name.
The actual "ROM4-ROM11" designation is unused for single waves, ROMx 32 is just always the first internal PCM wave, "Soft EP". There is no difference in the display of ROM4-32 "Soft EP" and ROM9-32 "Soft EP", it's the same thing - the ROM bank number designation is unused in this case.
- RAM1 0-31 - Wave Sequences in RAM bank 1
- RAM2 0-31 - Wave Sequences in RAM bank 2
- RAM3 0-31 - Wave Sequences in RAM bank 3
(None of the RAM banks have PCM samples, you can't use your own samples in the WS), so there's nothing higher than 31.
The 6 CARD banks all come from the Korg PCM/Card sets, so they all have their own card bank of Wave Sequences from 0-31, and the Card/Expansion PCM samples from 32 and up.
The KLC bank also does not have extra PCM waves, so just 0-31 Wave Sequences from this bank are selectable.
