Product Description

Korg Wavedrum

 dynamic percussion synthesizer delivers accurate and imaginative sounds from around the globe, as well as creates an interactive, organic, and spellbinding playing experience that no trigger-based system can match.

The Wavedrum is sonically richer, more sensitive, and packed with enough power and expression to create its own musical legend. Its wide dynamic range mimics that of an acoustic drum. Wavedrum responds perfectly to your action, from subtly nuanced tapping and stroking to aggressive, repetitive strikes.


With Wavedrum, instruments that normally require special techniques to play, including the tabla, or conga, can be played with ease. Additionally, Wavedrum establishes its own way of playing, granting you unparalleled levels of expression, full of originality and depth.

Item Includes

  • Korg Wavedrum
  • AC Adapter
  • Tuning key
  • Allen wrench

Multiple sensors deliver previously unimaginable expressiveness
Acoustic percussion instruments produce sound naturally, in direct response to a physical impact, be it gentle or abrupt. Wavedrum creates sound exactly the same way. The Korg Wavedrum responds to each and every subtle finger and hand motion (hitting, rubbing, scratching, etc.). as well as to the traditional hand drum techniques of open shot, slap shot, heel and toe, mute, etc. The Wavedrum certainly responds not just to your hands, but to other playing materials as well, like sticks, mallets and brushes. The rim has 2 types of notches, small and large, and these can be used to elicit a tremolo-type effect by scratching with sticks, etc. Combining the rim sounds with the head sounds can create an even richer, more original performance.

DSP synthesis and PCM samples combine for endless sonic exploration
The Wavedrum contains 36 DSP algorithms to conjure an abundance of synthesis methods; analog, additive, non-linear, physical modeling, etc. Using these building blocks, you can create various instrument sounds, natural sounds, or purely synthetic sounds - in addition to Wavedrum's own unique voice. The PCM sound engine - the other important part of Wavedrum's sound creation system - contains 200 sampled sounds; 100 for the head, and 100 for the rim, with velocity-switching capabilities.

Planet-wide percussion
Wavedrum begins with a foundation of traditional pop/rock drum sounds like snares, kick drums, tom tom, and more. It also opens new vistas of sound, delivering a wealth of percussion sounds from many eras and cultures around the globe and throughout time. These include popular percussion instruments such as cajons, congas and tablas; metallic instruments like cowbells and triangles, along with rare ethnic percussion sounds. With Wavedrum, you've instant access to instruments like the udo, a clay pod percussion instrument; the jegog, a bamboo gamelan marimba from the island of Bali; a talking drum from Africa, gongs, and many other instruments that often require special playing skills. Not strictly limited to percussion sounds, Wavedrum includes stringed instruments such as the sitar, koto, and berimbau as well. For every sound, Wavedrum adds its own new modes of expression, in addition to faithfully re-creating the original sounds.

Enjoy 100 preset programs; create 100 programs that are all your own
The 100 preset Wavedrum programs range from high-fidelity emulative drum and percussion sounds to a world of new and unique sounds. There're many parameters available for editing and tweaking to create new sounds to suit your own music or style of playing. In addition to making changes to pitch, decay time, loudness, reverb, delay and curve (intensity) of the pressure sensor, you can completely alter the sound by, for example, changing the head material parameter from skin to metal. The combination of DSP and sampled sounds can also be changed to create totally new sounds from scratch. These new programs (up to 100) can be stored in the user area. The Wavedrum also has a Live Mode, which can store up to 12 favorite programs (from the preset or user programs) for selection instantaneously during performance.

Jam-along functions for added fun
You can enjoy the Wavedrum just by playing the sounds alone, but the dynamic and interactive Wavedrum adds special features that offer jam-along abilities for fun or practice. Practice your paradiddles or simply wail away along to 100 loop phrases from various musical genres. Using the AUX input, you can mix in the signal from any audio source - CD, MP3 player, or even an additional Wavedrum. The options are endless.

Ready, Set, Go
Portable, compact and lightweight, Wavedrum is ready for any musical outing. Hold Wavedrum on your lap, or play it standing like a hand drum. Place it on an ordinary snare drum stand, or add it to any electronic or acoustic drum kit. Use Wavedrum as part of a DJ set-up, or add a percussive element to your keyboard rig. Using the headphone output allows you to practice in private, anytime, anyplace.
