Wave Sequencing 2.0

The original WAVESTATION gave each step of a wave sequence a duration, a sample and a pitch. This created ear-catching repetitive patterns, giving rise to entirely new approaches to sound design. But what if the sounds could evolve in organic and unexpected ways, instead of just repeating?

Wave Sequencing 2.0 separates the timing, the sequence of samples, and the melody, so that each can be manipulated independently. It also adds new characteristics, including shapes, gate times, and step sequencer values. Each of these is a “Lane”, and each Lane can have a different number of steps, and its own start, end and loop points.

Every time the sequence moves forward, the individual Lanes are combined to create the output. For instance, a sample may be matched with a different duration, pitch, shape, gate length, and step sequence value every time that it plays. You can modulate each Lane’s start, end, and loop points separately for every note, using velocity, LFOs, envelopes, Mod Knobs, or other controllers. Each note in a chord can even be playing something different!

Lanes can also randomize the step order every time they play, with realtime control over the range of included steps. Finally, individual steps can be randomly skipped, with a modulatable probability from 0 to 100%. The result is organic, ever-changing sounds that respond to your control. The four onboard arpeggiators can interact with Wave Sequences for even more possibilities.


Organic, inspirational, and mind-blowingly powerful.

Korg's flagship Wavestate SE is the powerful evolution of the legendary WAVESTATION, taking Wave Sequencing to a new level. Designed in California and built in Japan, wavestate SE features a premium 61-note keyboard with aftertouch, an all-metal chassis, and 120 notes of polyphony. It delivers astonishing, ever-changing sounds with extensive hands-on control, and is perfect for a new generation of musicians, producers, and composers. wavestate SE is also completely compatible with sounds and samples for both the original wavestate and wavestate native software, including many excellent third-party libraries.
