Korg Wavedrum Global Drum Synthesizer at a Glance:
200 exceptionally dynamic world percussion sounds to pick from
The Korg Wavedrum Global boasts a wide-ranging sound set that focuses on rare and exotic world percussion sounds. From the ceramic single-skin snap of the Darbuka, to the jingle of the Riq and the resonance of the dual-skinned Bendir, the Wavedrum Global captures every nuance of an amazing collection of instruments. There are 200 sounds onboard, ready to perform with or tweak to your satisfaction.
Multiple sensors deliver previously unimaginable expressiveness
Acoustic percussion instruments produce sound in direct response to a physical impact, be it gentle or abrupt. The Wavedrum Global creates sound exactly the same way, responding to each and every subtle finger and hand motion (hitting, rubbing, scratching, etc.). as well as to the traditional hand drum techniques of open shot, slap shot, heel and toe, mute, etc. Of course, the Wavedrum Global responds not just to your hands, but to other playing materials as well, such as sticks, mallets, and brushes. The rim has two types of notches, small and large, and these can be used to elicit a tremolo-type effect by scratching with sticks, etc. Combining the rim sounds with the head sounds can create an even richer and exciting performance.
External input for fun practice sessions
It’s easy to plug your iPad, drum machine, or other audio playback device to the Wavedrum Global’s 1/8″ aux input. After all, it can be more fun to practice your timing when you’re grooving along to your favorite music.
