This video offers a sneak preview of WaveReX, a modern PCM expansion option for the classic Korg M1 synthesizer.
WaveReX has the same form factor as the original PCM cards and can very simply be placed in the ROM-slot of the M1. It emulates and copies PCM cards – or enables you to create your own.
This video demonstrates how the WaveReX works and how you can use it to load custom samples with your M1.
Pricing and Availability
The WaveReX system is currently in development. The developers say that the prototype is working ‘smooth and stable’ and that 10 RC (Release Candidate) cards have been created for testing purposes. They expect a production release in late 2018, with a price of approximately 199 € (plus VAT).
The price includes:
- Hardware (WaveReX card) in a plastic casing
- Software for construction and loading of own cards (currently Windows-only, but they say a macOS version is planned).
- A sticker „powered by WaveReX“
