Korg Wavestate

Post by mridlen »

So I picked up a lightly used Korg Wavestate for around $550 and the companion VST for $50.

Works perfectly with Buzz / polac. Just needed to do a "scan shell" for vst3 on it.

Not a powerhouse by workstation standards, probably similar to the Yamaha CS2X. Its a very basic 4 layer sampler. But it is easyish to program, and the VST is patch compatible. Each layer gets 3 dedicated effect modules, and the filter selection is pretty good. You can load your own sounds in as well.

Hopefully this VST trend continues. Thinking about getting a Korg Opsix for similar reasons.

BTW, was feeling guilty about not supporting Buzz but the donate button isn't working. So I guess I'll have to live with the guilt for now. :? :twisted:

Polac seems to keep the wrappers up to date (vst3 support was available really quickly after release.)

Hopefully below links are ok for donate links.

The wavestate plays my backing track if I am willing to sacrifice a layer, and you only get 4 layers. But its only a 37 key so thats probably enough for 37 keys. And I have something like 3GB of song storage space on the wavestate. Good for minimal gear shows. The guitar amp sim is pretty cool too.

I was also looking at the Kurzweil PC4 which can be rigged similarly as far as backing tracks, and is much more powerful. You have to sacrifice a layer, but you get 16. My current Kurzweil PC3 has seen better days and probably needs new ends on it. Also it doesn't power on either...
