KORG Intros wavestate, opsix, & modwave Modules


Ahead of the 2024 NAMM Show, being held January 25-28, 2024 in Anaheim, California, Korg has announced module versions of the opsix, wavestate and modwave synthesizers.

MIDI 2.0 Property Exchange and Polyphonic Aftertouch support

With the latest software updates, all models of modwave, hardware and software, support MIDI 2.0 Property Exchange and easy access to Polyphonic Aftertouch.

Rack-Mount and Desktop

The modules are designed for both desktop and rack-mount use. The panel is redesigned to fit into a standard 19-inch width, and the rear jack panel is recessed to allow easy access to cables even with gear mounted directly above. With desktop setups, brackets offer a choice of panel angles: flatter for performing standing up, or more upright for working while seated in your studio.

The Korg modwave module offers of the features of the modwave mkII in a compact 19-inch desktop/rackmount package.

Here’s what they have to say about the modwave:

“modwave builds on the legacy of KORG’s DW-8000 and transforms it into a modern synth, featuring incredibly deep wavetable oscillators, gorgeous filters, wildly flexible modulation, unmatched polyphony, comprehensive pattern sequencing, and immediately satisfying hands-on control to deliver unique, powerful, and easily customizable sounds and phrases.”

See the Korg site for details.

The opsix module features Korg’s hands-on implementation of FM synthesis. The opsix module is fully compatible with the sounds of the original opsix, opsix mk II, opsix SE, and opsix native software, as well as numerous third-party libraries. The 19″ rack-mountable enclosure has the same controls as the keyed models, yet is easily transportable and fits neatly into any studio or desktop production system.

The Korg wavestate module offers all of the features of the wavestate mkII in a compact 19-inch desktop/rackmount package.

Here’s what they have to say about the wavestate:

“In 2020, the acclaimed wavestate brought KORG’s Wave Sequencing to the next level. Featuring the radically re-imagined Wave Sequencing 2.0, the wavestate delivers astonishing, ever-changing sounds with extensive hands-on control. Far from a nostalgic reissue, the wavestate was 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.”
