Easily Expressive, Exceptionally Deep - The Korg Wavestate MKII Wave Sequencing Synthesizer

Korg’s legendary Wavestation introduced the world to Wave Sequencing, transforming raw samples into sounds that no-one had ever heard before. The flagship Oasys and Kronos keyboards developed Wave Sequencing even further, expanding on its unique palette of lush, evolving pads and driving rhythms.


  • Wave Sequencing 2.0
  • Extensive modulation with hands-on control
  • Gigabytes of samples - and import up to 4GB of your own
  • Modeled filters, including MS-20 and Polysix
  • 96 stereo voices

  • Compact. Great design. 37 full-size keys


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!
