Its primary innovation was Wave Sequencing, a method of multi-timbral sound generation in which different PCM waveform data are played successively, resulting in continuously evolving sounds. The Wavestation's qAdvanced Vector Synthesisq sound architecture resembled early vector synths such as the Sequential Circuits Prophet VS. Designed as a qpureq synthesizer rather than a music workstation, it lacked an on-board song sequencer, yet the Wavestation, unlike any synthesizer prior to its release, was capable of generating complex, lush timbres and rhythmic sequences that sounded like a complete soundtrack by pressing only one key. Keyboard Magazine readers gave the Wavestation its qHardware Innovation of the Yearq award, and in 1995 Keyboard listed it as one of the q20 Instruments that Shook the World.q The Wavestation lineup consisted of four models: the Wavestation and Wavestation EX keyboards, and the Wavestation A/D and Wavesation SR rackmount sound modules. The two primary synthesis concepts designed into the Wavestation were Wave Sequencing and vector synthesis, the latter Korg dubbed qAdvanced Vector Synthesis.q Although the Korg Wavestation was the first keyboard that used Wave Sequencing, its roots can be traced back to earlier wavetable synthesizers, such as the PPG Wave produced by Palm Products GmbH in the early 80s and the...Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
