— Korg’s powerful percussion synthesizers are now even more affordable — MELVILLE, NY, October 3, 2011 — Korg announces lower pricing on its Wavedrum Dynamic Percussion Synthesizer models: the standard Wavedrum, Wavedrum Black and Wavedrum ORT. Wavedrum is a digital percussion instrument like no other. The real drum head, acoustic transducer and textured-rim playing surfaces provide a responsive, articulate and natural performance experience. Each Wavedrum is loaded with stunning acoustic percussion sounds, electronic drum mainstays, robust synth voices and dynamic effects. Now at an average price of $200 less than before, Korg’s revolutionary Wavedrums are now more affordable than ever. The Wavedrum, with its innovative design, organic interface and sonically rich, innovative sounds (100 user/100 preset), plus 100 loop phrases and recording features, is a powerful tool that can replace a roomful of instruments, and is thus ideal in facilities with limited space. Weighing less than five pounds and sporting a compact size, Wavedrum can be quickly set up in any control room or tracking area, making it a practical and space-saving addition to any personal or commercial music production studio. Users can hold Wavedrum on their lap, play it like a hand drum while standing, place it on an ordinary snare drum stand, or add it to any electronic or acoustic drum kit. Unlike most digital trigger-based systems, the Wavedrum uses a real drumhead as the playing surface. An audio transducer beneath the drumhead is responsive to performers playing with sticks, brushes and/or mallets, as well as traditional finger and hand drum techniques, including mute, slap and bend. A separate transducer under the rim further extends performance possibilities. Two different-sized raised patterns on the rim, similar to an Afro-Cuban guiro, facilitate additional percussive and pitched effects. Built-in Reverb and Delay effects add further depth and character. The Limited Edition Wavedrum Black adds on-stage appeal with its black finish and REMO Black Suede head, and the Wavedrum ORT is designed especially for Middle Eastern music, with an enhanced sample set that also includes Darabuka, Drinkga, Sagat, Riq, Def, Tar, Bendir and many other instruments from the region. Wavedrum ORT’s capabilities have also been increased to offer a total of 45 DSP algorithms, 300 PCM instruments (150 head, 150 rim), and storage of 150 editable preset programs plus 150 user-customized programs.
