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.
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.
This will be short. Note, this (short) review is being written 10 years after the last review of the Wavestation VSTi. And it's still awesome. I've had KLC for a few years and sort of ignored the WS in favour of the M1 but recently my eyes have been opened. It's my current synth girlfriend and will be for a while. Get it before Korg discontinues it or something -- the only reason it's not getting a 10 is because the last update to the KLC plugs was in 2013 (to update to 64-bit) and *nothing* since, so it seems Korg has abandoned them (while still gladly accepting $ for them, naturally!)Read Review
