BladeRunner End Titles on Korg Wavestate Synthesizer


Korg’s ‘California Trio’ of digital synths – the Opsix, Wavestate and Modwave – were introduced just as the world went into pandemic mode, and may have not gotten as much attention as they might have otherwise, as a result.


But, with Korg’s recent sale on the Opsix, and as more demo and performance videos have gotten out, people are starting to realize that each of the three synths features a powerful synth engine that offers a modern take on a classic digital approach to synthesis.

Here is a short synth jam that showcases some of the power of the Korg Wavestate, a live performance of the Blade Runner End Titles, from the score by Vangelis. The performance features patches by sound designer Maik Schott.
