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.

I have the software version and the SR and ex keyboard. I enjoy the softsynth but the SR has some extra impact to both my ears and my fingers.

Use a box such as the Bitstream 3x that has the programmable features such as a joystick and the ability to use a template to program with. I remember looking at the SR many years ago and seeing the 1500$ pricetag...I wanted the Emu Morpheus also, that was another 1500$. I got both from private sellers in nearly new condition in the original box for less than 250$ last year. Yes! I love the sounds! http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/357581/psiklon

Been after one for a while, finally found it :-)
It's everything I hoped for, love the sound of this synth. Got it synced with SoundDiver, now just need to dive in and unlock the full potential on this beast!
Had a 'low battery' warning, but changing the battery was a breeze, just unscrew and pop off the top, no soldering required.

Very deep with vast possibilities once you wrap head around how to program/utilize wave sequencing. I bought a Korg KONTROL 49, whci HAS a vector joystick and is also quite the diverse controller, with templates already set-up for Wavestation as it was orig. designed as option for Korg Legacy Collection. Novation seems to have "borrowed" from Korg Kontrol because VERY similar touch sensative controls and the 12 pads can be used to trigger loops or anything. The SR is gr8 but before you buy make sure battery has been changed otherwise may get one missing RAM Banks 1,2,3...lovely instrument!

Has many sounds and room for your own designs. Difficult for noobies to program but use a editor and your golden. If you know midi controllers the lack of joystick is not an issue. Cross fade 8 synthesizers in one stereo track and whats the big deal if there no joystick Think out side the synth box and you will see what old school programmers see. If you want preset romplers this will fail. It is a Vector synthesiser, an actual synthesiser, not a sample and hold deal. I own the wavestation keyboard also, is twice the fun. Good for ambient and some trance and psi. Use an external filter and FX

Just got one of these recently, it sounds awesome, would recommend to anyone, the sounds are ear candy. Totally fun and superb for soundtracks and New Age if anyone does New Age anymore, or Techno, or for experimental music - anything electronica.
