Combining advanced DSP technology and hundreds of high-quality samples, Wavedrum picks up where trigger-based systems leave off. An acoustic transducer under the head and two on the rim excite the DSP engine with every strike, providing Wavedrum with a natural, musical feel. Combined with hundreds of PCM samples, this technology allows Wavedrum to create unheard of sounds, or accurately represent unique percussion sounds from around the globe. Wavedrum responds instantly to any and all playing styles.

The real drumhead and textured-rim playing surfaces provide a responsive, articulate and natural performance experience, whether using sticks, mallets, brushes, or playing using traditional hand percussion techniques. Wavedrum begins with a foundation of traditional pop/ rock drum sounds such as snares, kick drums, tom-toms, and more. Wavedrum also opens new vistas of sound, delivering a wealth of percussion sounds from many eras and cultures around the world and throughout time. These include popular instruments such as cajons, congas and tablas; metallic instruments such as cowbells and triangles; along with rare ethnic percussion sounds. For every sound, Wavedrum adds its own new modes of expression, in addition to faithfully re-creating the original sounds. There are a range of parameters available for editing and tweaking to create new sounds to suit your own music or style of playing. In addition to making changes to pitch, decay time, loudness, and curve (intensity) of the pressure sensor, you can completely alter the sound by, for example, changing the head material parameter from skin to metal, or adding effects such as Reverb and Delay. The Wavedrum also has a Live Mode, which can store up to 12 favorite programs (from the preset or user programs) for instant selection during a performance.

Best of all, effects can be quickly chosen right from the front panel. By rhythmically adding successive effects, or switching effects on and off as your song progresses, you can use the Kaoss Pad Quad to add variation and development to the structure of your song. Any audio source can be processed: an MP3 player, a mixing board, an instrument, even vocals via the microphone input.

Finger-Free Freeze

The four Freeze buttons allows each effect module to independently memorize the position of your finger on the touchpad, even after you lift your finger from the pad. This unique arrangement allows you to freeze different effects in different positions, while using the touchpad to control others. Touch the pad again while Freeze is enabled, and only the non-frozen effects will be controlled. Using the four Freeze buttons in conjunction with the effect select buttons can provide even higher levels of performance freedom.

Stay in Sync!

Korgs proprietary Auto BPM circuit automatically detects the tempo/BPM (Beats Per Minute) from nearly any audio source, allowing BPM effects to remain in sync with the song. Tap Tempo is also provided; press the TAP button several times at the desired tempo to set the BPM on the fly. You can also use the BPM knob to make fine adjustments.

Completely self contained, the SOS contains a high-quality stereo microphone and a built-in speaker. But most importantly, with the Korg SOS, youll never run out of tracks. Each take or overdub is recorded as an individual CD-quality 16-bit / 44.1 kHz WAV file, and saved directly to a microSD or microSDHD card. Accurate BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) timing information is embedded in each track, meaning all tracks will automatically line up when imported into a computer-based DAW system. So build your ideas freely and flexibly, without ever worrying about setting up a track or pausing to fumble with technology while inspiration strikes. But of course theres more. The SOS contains 100 effect programs derived from Korgs acclaimed REMS modeling system, divided into Guitar & Bass, Microphone, and Master categories. A variety of built-in tuners keep everything in tune, and dozens of internal rhythm patterns help lock down the timing for polished results.

DSD recording of this caliber reproduces startling transients, and delivers a spectacularly clean, natural, and breath-taking audio experience. If you incorporate analog processing or consoles in your productions the MRs are the perfect tool for capturing your final mix in all its sonic glory out of the box.

The Diplo Interview

KORG: How did you being your journey as an artist/ DJ/producer? Diplo: I started as a DJ and was not very good. Then, I made weird music (all I could do with no skill.) I in fact had a Korg microKORG, played stuff on that even borrowed an old [Korg semi-modular circa 1978] MS-20. [Next] I was DJin full-time and back into production with some minor hits; now doing both full-time. KORG: Guns Dont Kill People, Lazers Do! is out and banging. How did you team up with Switch for Major Lazer? Diplo: Hes been a partner for years, and he just excels at mixing; while Ive got a lot of good hair-brain ideas. KORG: Any moments that stand out in your head from working on this? Diplo: Workin at Tuff Gong; going out to parties in Kingston; seeing how DJs mix on their boards as DJs The actual yard sound systems sound way better than what Im used to in a fancy club in the USA! But just being out here right now we are working again. This time with Santigold and Lykke Li and others; its pretty sick. Were getting some good songs. KORG: Any Diplo collaborations, Mad Decent
