Korg Modwave Native Now Available for Mac and Windows


The trend for official software versions of contemporary hardware synths is one we’re fully onboard with.

Korg has introduced modwave native, a fully-compatible software counterpart to its recently introduced modwave synthesizer keyboard. The Modwave has joined the Opsix and Wavestate as an option for your DAW.

Released in 2021, the Modwave is an all-digital synth that’s loosely based on Korg’s DW-8000, which is something of a cult classic. It offers wavetable oscillators, sumptuous filters, flexible modulation options, effects and hi-spec pattern sequencing.

Modwave Native is fully compatible with the hardware – sounds can be exchanged between the two – and also supports any third-party sound libraries that are designed for the original Modwave (or for the wavestate, for that matter).
