Korg Wavestation

Yep, being from the beginning of the '90s, that thing can impress. You don't need any external effects or mastering, you just plug the audio cable and it sounds like in a movie. The biggest disappointment? That most of the 400 wave shapes sound too repetitive.
Similar to M1 but only on the outside. M1 is a better choice for gigs, whereas WS does great job in your studio (this is building up a subjective stereotype, of course - that's just the way I would arrange it).

I was scared by the interface, but actually it is designed in a way that facilitates the work and is quite simple to get through. Nevertheless the Wavestation, like the Roland D50, represents the breed of synths that I wholeheartedly dislike, to say the least.
Too much clicking, too much Enya, not enough flawless interaction with my raw impulses. I really feel I should refrain from deeper comments on such models.

 


Jako ze pochodzi z poczatku lat 90tych, model ten moze wywierac wrazenie. Nie trzeba dodawac zadnych efektow ani masterowac, wystarczy podpiac kabel audio i dzwiek jak z filmu. Najwieksze rozczarowanie? To, ze wiekszosc z 400 ksztaltow fali brzmi tak samo. Podobny do M1 ale tylko z zewnatrz - na scene raczej sie nie nadaje, ale za to do studia jak najbardziej.

Na poczatku bylem przerazony obsluga, ale jednak wyswietlacz i organizacja przyciskow ulatwiaja prace i wszystko odbywa sie sprawnie. Mimo wszystko Wavestation, tak samo jak Roland D50, reprezentuje gatunek syntezatorow, ktorego nie darze sympatia, mowiac delikatnie. Za duzo klikania, za duzo Enyi, zbyt malo interakcji z moimi surowymi impulsami. Dalsze komentowanie byloby niesprawiedliwoscia z mojej strony.
