Korg Wavestate 2.0 Adds User Sample Support & More

Korg today released wavestate v2.0, a major update to their wave sequencing synthesizer that adds support for user samples, a patch editor & librarian, new performance features and more.

Here’s what’s new inn Korg wavestate 2.0:

  • Support for User Samples – Import up to 4 GB of your own Multi-samples into the wavestate via the new Sample Builder application for Mac and Windows. Use your samples in Wave Sequences or as single Multi-samples, just like the factory Multi-samples.
  • Editor/Librarian – The Editor/Librarian acts as a second front panel for the wavestate. Realtime display of modulated parameter values and Wave Sequences gives you instant feedback on your creations. Copy and paste sounds, envelopes, LFOs, filter settings, and more. Dive deep into Effects with access to all internal parameters and create your own Effects Presets.
  • User-requested improvements
    • The new Performance-level Hold feature (via SHIFT-ARP) keeps notes or chords playing, leaving your hands free for moving knobs or playing other instruments.
    • Fit to Scale lets you constrain the Pitch Lane’s output to a specific scale and key—especially useful when playing polyphonically.
    • Get to your sounds faster. Select Categories for Performances, Programs, Multi-samples, Wave Sequences, and Lanes directly from buttons 1-16. The new “User” Category lets you mark your own sounds, and dual Categories mean that a sound can be assigned to both “User” and “Strings” (for example).
  • Explore Vector Synthesis – The new Curve parameter lets you control the way that Vector Volume crossfades between points. For maximum volume, use Loud (the original wavestate behavior); for more gentle crossfades, use Smooth (the original Wavestation behavior).
  • Other refinements – New gain-scaling options bring out the tonal range of the MS-20 and Polysix filters, and user interface improvements streamline your sound design.

wavestate software 2.0, the Editor/Librarian, and Sample Builder are available now to wavestate owners as free downloads.

    In the past I have said some unkind things about the lack of an editor and other Wavestate issues. I take it all back, and I humbly beg forgiveness.

    1. FYI: I upgraded to 2.0.1 today and the new software Editor/Librarian and Sample Builder – it’s like a whole new instrument! Best Update EVAH!

    1. yes … great update
      take note : moog for the one, novation for the summit, elektron for the model sample, dreadbox for the typhon, roland for everything 🙂
      and apple please stop updating and breaking everything that was working, so you can sell new stuff

    Hahaha! lol, best comment of the day!!!

  3. In windows bisogna aggiornare i driver del protocollo RNDIS, in modo farraginoso…nulla a che vedere per esempio con l’editor dell’Argon Modal per esempio che è plug and play. In mac os per fare il boot senza connessione internet bisogna essere un polipo, e le versioni precedenti alla 10.12 non funzionano.La velocità bidirezionale di trasmissione tra wavestate e computer da loro millantata, è simile a quella tra il Modal Argon e il computer, a fronte di una installazione farraginosa e impossibile. Molti utenti Windows se ne renderanno conto prossimamente…
