A key semi-weighted keyboard, pitch and modulation wheels, and a vector joystick comprised the player controls. Bugs in the operating system were also fixed though several still remained. Korg replaced the large joystick with a smaller version, the same display from the keyboard versions was retained, and an additional RAM bank added. A unique feature was its analog inputs, capable of accepting guitar, mic and line-level signal; it allowed the effect processors to process those signals in realtime particularly useful with the vocoders in the new EX effects. Without an external MIDI sound editor, programming was a very difficult task due to the small display, although all parameters can be edited from the panel.

Great design. This created ear-catching patterns—but the patterns repeated the same way, over and over. What if they could evolve in organic, unexpected ways, instead of just repeating? Wave Sequencing 2. Also added are new characteristics including shapes, gate times, and step sequencer values. 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. Each note in a chord can be playing something different! Lanes can also randomize the step order every time they play, with realtime control over the range of included steps. The result is organic, ever-changing sounds that respond to your control.
The four onboard arpeggiators can interact with Wave Sequences for even more possibilities. Easily expressive. Exceptionally deep. Bursting with knobs and controllers, the wavestate invites you to explore. All of the basics—filter, envelopes, LFOs, effects—are at your fingertips with dedicated front-panel controls. Eight programmable Mod Knobs are customized to bring out the most in every sound, often taking them in entirely new directions.
Use the knobs in realtime performance, and also save the results as new sounds. Want to dig deeper? Almost all front-panel knobs, and most on-screen parameters, can be modulated. You can even modulate settings for individual Wave Sequence Steps!
Mod Processors let you transform modulation signals using quantization, smoothing, curvature, and more. Randomization that inspires. Looking for even more inspiration? Randomize the entire sound or just a part of it, such as the filter, the Sample Lane, or the effects. Use the results directly, or as a jumping-off point for your own creations. An arsenal of effects.
Each Layer has three dedicated effects; additionally, the Performance has a master reverb and parametric EQ. Choose your filter. Add vintage character to your sounds with the aggressive MS Lowpass or Highpass filters, or the strong, sweet Polysix Lowpass. Shape and refine with a full collection of resonant 2-pole and 4-pole Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass, and Band Reject filters.
Ample samples. Multiply by four. With all of that synthesis power, you might think the wavestate would play only one sound at a time. Not a chance. For even more rich and complex results, layer up to four Programs together in a Performance—each with their own effects and arpeggiator. The Vector Envelope and Joystick mix the individual voices of the four Layers, and can also modulate any other parameters.
Set Lists and Smooth Sound Transitions. Set Lists offer effortless organization of your wavestate Performances, and deliver instant access at the gig or in rehearsal. Smooth Sound Transitions allow previously-played voices and effects to continue to ring out naturally, even once a new sound has been selected.
Plays well with others. Balanced stereo outputs connect to any recording or monitoring system, and a stereo headphone output is provided for private playing or onstage cueing. The wavestate reflects their unique aesthetic, delivering stunning sound and deep flexibility via cutting-edge technologies.
