Korg Modwave Wavetable Synthesizer


First look video, Adam Lee he gets a first look at what the modwave can do. We are working on a full review – watch this space. Latest foray into wavetable synthesis has landed.


Korg today announced that its Modwave wavetable synthesizer is now available.


Launched at NAMM 2021, the announcement of the Korg modwave promised a “monster synth” that boasts a powerful synthesis engine and some extensive modulation capabilities.


Based on Korg DW-8000, the modwave brings the legacy of that ‘80s cult favourite into the 21st century with the addition of Kaoss Physics and Motion Sequencing 2.0.


First impressions of the modwave are positive, with the advanced wavetable synthesis engine offering up some serious opportunity for variation – 200 wavetables each contain up to 64 waveforms, with the structure allowing for 30+ Modifiers to be used alongside 13 Morph Types for realtime processing.


Combined with the A/B Blend function, that means the modwave is capable of producing over 230 million wavetable variations, even before modulation. The addition of a Kaoss pad as a modulation source, alongside the wavestate Motion Sequencing 2.0, makes for some dazzling creative possibilities.


Korg Modwave Wavetable Synth is available now. Find out more on the Korg website.
