Korg Wavestation A/D Image

The Wavestation A/D is essentially a compact rackmount module of the Wavestation EX. It has the 4MB of advanced Vector Synthesis and Wave Sequencing synthesis and editing capabilities. The A/D also has a joystick controller to aid editing the Vectors. A new feature is a stereo analog input for filtering and modulating any external audio sources. They can even be used as part of the vector wave shaping, vocoder and more to incorporate it into your sound. The Wavestation A/D also has a wealth of on-board digital multi-effects for sweet synth sounds and pads! Wavestations are used by Orbital, Depeche Mode, and The Future Sound of London.

Tried it when it first came out. Spent hours on it.
Good Idea to vector you older synths in input. Even cheap ones. Too bad no sample input storage. Only setting are stored. Sounds are crystal clear. Not digital sounding. The filter is very primitive and not self resonating. By the way, this could be oversighted by the many sample bits that can be connected together in a sequence to sound like filter sweep. You can setup a sequence with random pulse and analg waveforms to sound like Sample and Hold.
It's OK. One of my favourites.
