The apex of synth power

Taking cues from sources like modular synths, groove boxes, and algorithmic composition, wavestate native sounds lush and large. Expressive and deep, wavestate has thousands of modulation options and no fixed limit on the total number of modulation routings. Use drag and drop to easily modulate almost anything and keep a birds eye view of all routings via the Mod List.


Wave Sequencing 2.0

Wave Sequencing 2.0 splits apart the timing, sequence, and the melody of samples so that each can be manipulated independently. The result? More dynamic, unexpected sounds. Wave Sequencing 2.0 allows for “lanes” that can have a different number of steps with their own start, end, and loop points and effects. Modulate each Lane’s start, end, and loop points separately for every note, using velocity, LFOs, envelopes, Mod Knobs, or other controllers. Randomize step order or randomly skip steps for something ever-changing that feels like an extension of your creative curiosity.


An arsenal of effects

The wavestate’s effects deliver even more depth to your sound. Along with standards such as compressors, EQs, choruses, flangers, phasers, and stereo delays, you’ll find distinctive processors such as the Wave Shaper, Talking Modulator, Reverse Delay, Multiband Mod Delay, and Overb (from the OASYS), plus modeled effects including VOX guitar amps, VOX wah, multi-head tape echo, and a collection of classic guitar pedals. With three dedicated effects per layer and a master reverb and parametric EQ, you’re guaranteed to get lost in a new favorite patch.


In perfect harmony

Wavestate native is the software counterpart to KORG’s wavestate synthesizer. Produce in your DAW with wavestate native, and then play the same sounds on your wavestate in the studio or on stage. Load third-party sound and sample libraries compatible with Wavestate hardware.


Timeless tech

Designed by the same team that brought you the Wavestation and other historic synth sounds, the wavestate packs decades of innovative synth technology into one plugin. Three of the key sound designers from the original Wavestation, John Bowen, John “Skippy” Lehmkuhl (Plugin Guru), and Peter “Ski” Schwartz, joined Belgian artist Airwave and the renowned KORG voicing team to create the incredible wavestate sound library.

Product Information

  • Far from a nostalgic reissue, the wavestate is designed from the ground up for a new generation of musicians, producers, and composers, taking cues from sources as diverse as modular synths, groove boxes, and algorithmic composition.
