Wavetable Synthesizer
Korg - 'modwave'

Korg - 'modwave'

Synthesis powerhouse with distinctive wavetable timbres
Kaoss Physics, and Motion Sequencing 2.0
Back in the mid-80’s, the iconic DW-8000 from Korg combined digital wavetables with warm analogue filters to offer musicians sounds before which, were impossible to curate with analogue oscillators. It remains a firm favourite to this day.

The new ‘modwave’ builds upon the DW legacy and morphs it into a modern monster synth, featuring unbelievably deep wavetable oscillators, stunning filters, hugely versatile modulation, unparalleled polyphony, extensive pattern sequencing and hugely satisfying hands-on control to serve up a unique, powerful and hugely customisable sounds and phrases.

Modwave also brings two new tools to the fold for creating dynamic motion: Kaoss Physics and Motion Sequencing 2.0. ‘Kaoss Physics’ utilises an innovative x/y Kaoss pad with modulable game physics to craft a highly responsive, interactive controller which is a hell of a lot of fun to dive into! Motion Sequencing 2.0 brings the organic, continuously evolving patterns of the wavestate's Wave Sequencing 2.0 into the world of motion sequencing, including multiple lanes and real-time recording to help you create complex and evolving phrases that other step sequencers cannot.

Similarly, to Wave Sequencing 2.0 (wavestate) and altered FM (opsix), modwave’s revolutionised wavetable synthesis offers its own brand of completely unique sounds and a knob-per-function layout that makes customizing those sounds fast and easy. To begin, there’s an abundance of preset sounds empowered by this new architecture, organized by front-panel category buttons, and all instantly customizable via the four Modulation Knobs. modwave's distinctive wavetable timbres start with aggressive basses & leads, and lush ambient pads which will add a new dimension to your tracks. But that is just the start. Those who want to dig deeper will find an endless source of discovery; you'll be finding new things in this synth for a long, long time because of the unique synth architecture. Once you have started finding new sounds - save as many as you like; there's room for thousands more!

Powerful 'modwave' Synthesis Engine

Korg - 'modwave'

over 200 wavetables!When Korg call the wavetable oscillators "deep," they're seriously not kidding around. Start with over 200 wavetables, each containing up to 64 waveforms—from thousands of individual waves. Use the 30+ Modifiers to change their basic character, and the 13 Morph Types to process them in real-time. Create new hybrids from any two wavetables using the unique, realtime A/B Blend. Quick math: that's over 230 million wavetable variations out of the box, and that’s before you even add modulation. No need to stop there, though! Load your own custom wavetables in Serum or WaveEdit formats; there's room for thousands more*. Or, layer wavetables with samples from the built-in, multi-gigabyte PCM library.
*via Editor/Librarian software

Each Program has two full-featured wavetable oscillators, plus a sub oscillator/noise generator and any of a dozen stereo filter types, including the aggressive MS-20, sweet Polysix, and the newly enhanced Multi Filter. Animate almost any parameter using the massively flexible modulation system, with four triggerable envelopes, five LFOs, dual mod processors and two key-track generators–plus multi-lane Motion Sequencing and Kaoss Physics.

Even with all that synthesis power, playing up to four simultaneous wavetables per voice in a single Program, the modwave still achieves 32-voice polyphony, incredible for a wavetable synth. Layer two Programs together for double the possibilities.

'Kaoss' Physics

Korg - 'modwave'

unparalleled controlKaoss Physics models a ball rolling on a surface and/or bouncing off walls. Start the ball by flicking a finger on the x/y pad, or launch the ball automatically using a trigger source such as Gate + Damper. You can also directly control the ball by holding your finger on the pad. The position of the ball produces four modulation signals, which can be used to control any modulation destination you like: the X and Y locations, the distance from the center, and the angle relative to the X axis. This method of applying automated modulation is a first, and the results are modulations that are engrossing and evolving.

There is a bump in the virtual surface, going either down or up, like a valley or a hill. You can set the height or depth of the bump, and choose one of several different shapes for its slopes. The surface has adjustable friction, so that the ball slows down as it travels. There are walls on the four sides of the surface, and when the ball hits a wall, it bounces off. Walls can slow down the ball, as if they were padded, or accelerate the ball, like bumpers in a pinball machine. The walls can also be removed entirely, so that the surface wraps around to the opposite edges like a vintage arcade game.

Dive Deeper into the Synth Engine

Korg - 'modwave'

What's a wavetable?Wavetables are sets of single-cycle digital waveforms, arranged in a specific order. The wavetable's "position" determines which waveform is played. Moving the position with an envelope, LFO, or other modulation source creates subtle or dramatic changes in timbre. Some wavetable systems switch abruptly from one waveform to another; others crossfade smoothly between them.

ModifiersUse over 30 Modifiers to alter the character of any wavetable at load time. For instance, isolate the odd or even harmonics, add weight through anti-aliased quantization or saturation, or revisit the gritty character of old-school wavetable synths with the Vintage 8 & 12 options.

MorphThe 13 Morph Types let you stretch, squeeze, reflect, and otherwise alter the wavetables in real-time, changing their timbre and—when modulated—creating additional motion in the sound. Sync creates classic swept-sync timbres, using only a single oscillator. Three special Morph Types—FM, AM, and Ring Mod—modulate Osc 2 with Osc 1, and even apply to samples.

A/B BlendUsing the unique A/B mode, oscillators can blend any two wavetables with phase-synchronous precision—different from simply layering voices—opening up a dimension of intermediate waveforms. Add body to otherwise "thin" waveforms, for instance, or a touch of sizzle to a mellow timbre. Even fade between two different "modifier" versions of the same wavetable. A/B Blend can be modulated in real-time, of course.

Gigabytes of samplesWavetables also sound great when layered with samples, and the modwave oscillators handle that with aplomb. Totaling in the gigabytes, the modwave’s sample library includes new material from KORG, Airwave, and Francis Preve, plus a bank from Plugin Guru and a selection from the Kronos and Krome libraries.

Software for Mac / Windows

'an edgy, expansive, and easy to use wavetable synthesizer'In 1985, Korg's DW-8000 combined digital wavetables with rich analog filters to give users sounds which were impossible to create with analog oscillators. It's still a cult favorite today. modwave builds upon the DW legacy with incredibly deep wavetable oscillators, gorgeous filters, first-ever Kaoss Physics-based modulation, unmatched polyphony, comprehensive pattern sequencing, and immediately satisfying hands-on control to deliver unique, powerful, and easily customizable sounds and phrases.
