The Wavedrum Global Edition from Korg combines PCM drum sounds, DSP driven synthesis and multiple pickup sensors to form a percussion synthesizer designed for flexibility and expressiveness.

The Wavedrum Global Edition has been updated over previous Wavedrum versions as it boasts greater pickup precision for improved dynamic range of low and high pitches, as well as an enhanced response to soft playing. Designed to capture the subtleties of your drumming, the Wavedrum is equipped with a pressure sensor as well as multiple pickups that are capable of capturing your strikes on both the head and the rim. These features allow the Wavedrum to not only detect strikes, but also rubs and scratches as well as slap shots and mutes. It is also capable of producing tonal differences dependent on what you strike the Wavedrum with, whether it be with your hand, a drumstick, a mallet or a brush. The Wavedrum Global Edition also adds an input sensitivity parameter that can be adjusted to match your personal range of dynamics. This can be helpful for customizing the Wavedrum to match your style of play whether you're a beginner that's just learning, or a heavy-hitting professional.

In addition to the sensory based features that lend to playability, the Wavedrum Global Edition is loaded with 60 DSP algorithms and 400 PCM drum samples that are included to give you a broad palette of tweakable options and sounds. The DSP algorithms allow you to use various methods of synthesis to create your own sounds or alter existing ones. Some of the synthesis types that you can use include analog, additive, non-linear and physical modeling. The PCM library contains 200 sounds that can be assigned to the Wavedrum's head, and 200 that can be assigned to the rim. In addition to standard drum kit sounds such as kicks and snares, the library also includes percussion sounds such as djembe and conga, as well as ethnic instruments such as marimba and the African talking drum. Furthermore, the library includes a section of stringed instrument sounds such as the sitar, as well as a host of sound effects and dance oriented electronic sounds. Also, the PCM sounds can be combined with the different DSP synthesis methods to create new sounds and variations.

200 preset programs cover a range of sounds from standard percussion to ethnic instruments
200 user programs for storing your own customized sounds and settings
Live mode stores up to 4 favorite programs per each of the 3 banks for a total of 12 settings that can be instantly recalled
140 loop phrases of various genres to practice with or play on top of
AUX input allows you to mix an external audio source such as an MP3 player with Wavedrum's output. This can be used for jamming along to backing tracks
Compact, lightweight and portable. Designed to easily fit into a multitude of live applications from percussion to keyboard setups
