Single Synth Berlin School Synth Jam With The Korg Wavestate Synthesizer


This video, via Waveformer, captures a single-synth Berlin School-style synth jam, featuring the Korg Wavestate synthesizer.

Here’s what they shared about the technical details:

The performance has four layers that are used as four individual parts/tracks – two independent melodic arpeggiators, one bass layer and one pad layer. During the jam, I play with the arpeggiators and do live sound design. The complete jam was recorded in one go with no post-processing except some light compression.”

Wavestate performance mod knobs:
Knob 1: Layer A (arp melody 1) Octave
Knob 2: Layer B (bass) Octave
Knob 3: Layer C (pad) Octave
Knob 4: Layer D (arp melody 2) Octave
Knob 5: Layer A (arp melody 1) Amp Level
Knob 6: Layer B (bass) Amp Level
Knob 7: Layer C (pad) Amp Level
Knob 8: Layer D (arp melody 2) Amp Level

ModWheel controls the decimator effect for Layer A, and makes layer B and D softer.

Joystick X controls Reverb Effect Level.
Joystick Y controls Layer C (pad) Bandpass Filter Cutoff Frequency

The audio is recorded to SD card on a Zoom R-16 recorder and normalized in Audacity. Video is recorded on a Canon EOS M50 mk2 with the included EF-M 15-45mm lens. Audio and video is synchronized in DaVinci Resolve 18 (free version).
