Korg Wavestate Bundle consists of 3 soundsets: Modular Clouds, Melodic Patterns, and Atmospheric Lo-Fi (150 presets total).
“Modular Clouds” is a collection of 50 dreamy generative performances for Korg Wavestate. There are evolving pads and stabs, plucks and arps, leads and strings, mallets and percussion.
Controlled chaos and randomness, probability, non-repetitiveness, pattern uniqueness, short and long sounds alternation, unexpected changes, silence and density, harmonic and FX-like tones, freaky splashes during the playback… All these things are included in the soundset.
A Generative timbre may be a good addition to (or a lead part of) any track, jam and performance. You may also record fragments into your DAW or sampler, slice it to one-shots or make loops. You’ll get a unique material for further processing.
“Melodic Patterns” is a collection of 50 arpeggio performances for Korg Wavestate.
There is a wide variety of arps in the soundset: slow and fast, simple and complex, electronic and “instrumental”, soft and bright, gentle and expressive, dreamy and dark, sustained and punchy… It also includes generative style arpeggios that are great for ambient.
Hold the keys, tweak performance controls and get melodic parts for your productions and jams!
“Atmospheric Lo-Fi” is a collection of 50 performances for Korg Wavestate.
It includes: 8 Basses, 8 Keys, 7 Pads, 6 Strings, 6 Synths, 5 Leads, 5 Brasses, 5 Plucks.
The soundset is devoted to Lo-Fi sound and its colors: detuned, noisy, tape-style, vintage, old, bit-crushed, warm-analog, cold-digital…
Each preset has thoroughly set performance controls: ModWheel, 8 Macros, X/Y Vector Envelope. They may change the color of a timbre greatly: from thin, dull, distant, narrow, to bright, wide, and thick. They may change the shape of the timbre and add movement. You must tweak all the controls to understand the full potential of a preset.
Thus, the timbres will fit many genres, styles, arrangements, and mixes.
Thoroughly set parameters and complex modulations.
All 8 Performance Knobs/Macros are assigned to different parameters. They give changes from subtle to dramatic.
Vector Envelope adds movement or changes the timbre.
ModWheel adds expression.
No external/additional samples are required.
Performances’ volumes are equalized for a comfortable browsing.
Important technical information
Check you Wavestate clock settings, if it’s set incorrectly, the arp may not work.
Vector Envelope movement behaves differently depending on how you hold keys for the arp. If you hold the keys on the keyboard, with a sustain pedal, or you have a midi-clip in your DAW with long notes, then the Vector Envelope will move according to its settings. If you use Arp Latch Mode on Wavestate and push keys without holding them, then the Vector Envelope will not move, but you may move the joystick manually.
Thus, if you use Arp Latch Mode the timbre is a bit simpler (as it lacks additional movement), if you hold the keys without Arp Latch Mode the timbre is more complex due to pre-programmed movement. This information will help you to choose the right scenario for your workflow.
No drums are included in the soundset.
Firmware Version 2.0.1 (or higher) is required to use these presets.
