Creating sounds with time-varying timbre, on your mobile device. KORG iWAVESTATION - A wave sequence synthesizer for iOS. The WAVESTATION synthesizer went on sale in 1990. This instrument featured an advanced vector synthesis system which created new sounds by combining and connecting multiple waveforms; it provided a mix/morphing function that let you use a joystick to change the balance of four oscillators, and a distinctive wave sequence function that allowed you to place waveforms in a desired sequence to create sequence patterns. To this day, it continues to be considered a legendary and still-unique instrument. Now in 2016, the WAVESTATION has been reborn as "KORG iWAVESTATION," an app for iPad/iPhone. In addition to completely reproducing the programs, it also features a renewed design that lets everyone experience the stupendous sound-shaping potential of the WAVESTATION. It features touch-based operation that's distinctive of iOS, in conjunction with a new graphic interface that allows you to visualize and edit the time-varying timbral changes that are distinctive of the WAVESTATION. [ Features ] - A faithful reproduction of the original WAVESTATION sound: In addition to providing the sounds from all PCM memories of the WAVESTATION, the new iWAVESTATION also reproduces in software every detail of the parameters, based on an analysis of the original hardware circuit diagram. - A new wave sequence view that can be graphically controlled: The iWAVESTATION, we advance another step with a graphical user interface that takes advantage of the touch operations that are a characteristic of iOS. Even more than ever, we've updated the screen design with an emphasis on creating sequences. - 1,500 sounds, more than 700 waveforms, 55 effects, and a powerful random sequence engine: This new instrument includes a stupendous number of presets and waveforms, covering all models of the series. iWAVESTATION also provides a new random sequence function which will give you different perspectives to inspire new sounds. - Produce music together with KORG Gadget integration: iWAVESTATION can be used in conjunction with the "KORG Gadget" music production DAW app that has won numerous awards around the world. If both apps are installed, it can be used as the "Milpitas" gadget inside the KORG Gadget app. More info at korg.com




  • No AUv3 leaves KORG in the dust....

    By k9d
    I wish I could use this synth with any of my other favorite music apps... AUv3 please KORG!
  • A+

    By AprilRoxStudios
    As a professional musician, iWAVESTATION provides a wealth of sounds to compose and perform with. The sounds are comparable to some of the top desktop VST's. Korg has A+ sounds, instruments and apps. -AprilRox
  • It’s not bad on sale.

    By Septimo73
    The sounds are great but they seem repetitive. Like almost the same synth pads or leads multiple times across all cards even if some may have a tiny variation as if to have their cutoff knob tweaked to say, “hey! This ones different” but still sounds too similar for the listener to really tell the difference. This goes on for well over over 100 times. Then comes the issue of navigation.. well every other reviewer already said what’s wrong.. if you’re getting this or iM1 and are confused in witch to grab and don’t plan on getting both, stick to iM1. But if only on phone well by all means, this. It isn’t very user friendly or intuitive if your new to keyboards. However if you have some experience you should do ok. All korg iOS apps have these clunky interfaces. But you don’t usually get them for their interface, you usually get them for the sounds. if you’re getting this or iM1 and are confused in witch to grab and don’t plan on getting both, stick to iM1. But if only on phone well by all means, this.
  • Fix The TEMPO selector

    By Conrad Keely
    You just put out an update, and this hasn’t been resolved. It would take a developer what, half an hour to fix this? FIX it. For one, do you need a tempo to the second decimal place? Who sets a song to 90.54 bpm? For another, why can’t we type the tempo in, so that we don’t have to hassle with the infuriating way you’ve designed the number selector? FIX it.
  • Worth every penny

    I don’t know why I’ve been overlooking this synth.Korg did good.I really enjoy using the Kaoss pad and all the other parameters!
  • Midi update

    By reflectiz
    It was kinda useless for me until they recently added midi channel selection instead of Omni only. Glad you addressed an important issue
  • Sounds Amazing And Fun...

    By Gitarzz
    Sounds fun? Yeah. This is really a very complex app. The sounds are stunning. Just amazing stuff. But I've tried just putting things together to create my own blend of sounds and beats, etc. but I feel like I'm getting nowhere. I downloaded and attempted to read through the PDF manual but unfortunately the only time I have to do that is after work and it puts me right to sleep. The next day I don't remember what I read and have to start from the beginning. Not a complaint with Korg, just an explanation. So, when I say it sounds fun that's because that's all I have to go on. As other reviewer's have pointed out, there's a bit of a learning curve. Maybe one of these online education sites will do a class on how to use it. That would help a lot. Once you purchase this app it then becomes available to you in Korg Gadget and the Gadget version is actually easier to use. You can't do any building in Gadget. You simply open the presets and play. You can do that in the app as well but you'll want to create once you get in there. The layout is very intriguing. It works amazing in Gadget. If you don't have Gadget I highly recommend that as well. Much less learning curve and just amazing sounds.
  • Needs the search capabilities of iM1

    By C3l3$t1n0
    This is a very interesting synth, has more expandability than iProphet but similar results. The thing I wish the most is that preset were easily searchable, like the preset in iM1. That would make searching for the best sound easy.
  • Updated to the latest version: can’t restore my purchase.

    By gmeauclaire
    I’m getting the following error message - “Restoration was successful but not found the card bundle info.” I checked before I updated and had the additional sound cards. Please fix the bug. Thanks. **update** My restore started working about 24 hours later.
