Korg Wavestation SR

Korg Wavestation SR Image

The Wavestation SR is a repackaged Wavestation designed to provide you with all the Wavestation sounds you could ever ask for in a more compact and less expensive MIDI Module. It is a 1-unit rackmount tone module that has all the raw power and sounds of the famous WavestationEX and A/D synths! The SR maintains the same advanced Vector Synthesis and Wave Sequencing synthesis method from a 4MB ROM card. While managing to increase the MIDI mixing and 16 part MIDI multitimbrality and shrinking the massive synth no sound nor edit parameter was sacrificed! Every parameter can still be tweaked, although much more tedious, however that is the trade-off for a compact, portable and richly multitimbral synthesizer module. Included among its vast array of amazing synthesizer sounds is 1 drum kit with 30 sounds making the SR an ideal centerpiece for any MIDI studio. Wavestations are used by Orbital, The Future Sound of London and Gary Numan.

Well - I have one and I most likely will never part with it - for a couple of reasons - The first is simple, it has all the wavestation sounds - Second, is that it pretty much has alot of the classy Korg M1/01 sounds too - so you pretty much get alot out of this little module - and you can program it too... It sounds great compared to some of my newer stuff - If you find one buy it - Ebay sells them from time to time - great little unit for what you get - that's why I have kept mine for so long -

Don't let the size of this little monster fool you. It came fully loaded with no fewer than 550 cool patches, including some of cool wavesequence jams (like "Ski Jam" or "The Wave Song") popularized by Jan Hammer and many others. I laughed when I read planetplayer's message about the battery running out. I turned mine on one day to find that all 3 banks of RAM patches had gone bye-bye! I had the battery replaced, but I dearly miss those 150 patches! Heed the messages below about trying to edit with this thing unless you have a S/W-based editor. I have the manual, and this thing...well, let's just say it is a DEEP machine. But, if you have the time and patience, you will be richly rewarded !

For those owners of the WS-SR, use a BBE Sonic Maximizer as an insert on this synth (or plug the SR's output into the BBE's input) and listen to how the BBE updates the sound to be clear as a bell! (comment made in 2009)
