Korg have released Modwave Native, a plugin incarnation of their incredible wavetable hardware synth. Modave Native is available at the intro price of $149.99, increasing to $199.00 after thr promotion. Owners of the hardware modwave are eligible for a crossgrade license to modwave native at the special price of $49.99, via a coupon code tied to the modwave hardware’s unique ID. Using the hardware and software versions together, you can have the best of both worlds: a physical instrument that responds to your touch, and complete DAW integration
The modwave, released in 2021, builds on the DW-8000 legacy and transforms it into a modern monster synth, featuring incredibly deep wavetable oscillators, gorgeous filters, wildly flexible modulation, sophisticated pattern sequencing, and macro controls to deliver unique, powerful, and easily customizable sounds and phrases.
Now, Korg is pleased to announce modwave native, the fully-compatible software counterpart to the hardware modwave synthesizer. You can seamlessly exchange sounds between hardware and software. Produce in your DAW with modwave native, and then play the same sounds on stage using the modwave hardware. Create sounds with the hardware’s hands-on interface, and then share them with a computer-based collaborator. Plus, you can use any of the many third-party sound libraries available for the hardware modwave, as well as sample libraries designed for either the modwave or wavestate.
When Korg call the wavetable oscillators “deep,” they weren’t kidding. Start with over 200 wavetables, each containing up to 64 waveforms—from thousands of individual waves. Use the 30+ Modifiers to change their basic character, and the 13 Morph Types to process them in real-time. Create new hybrids from any two wavetables using the unique, realtime A/B Blend. Quick math: that’s over 230 million wavetable variations out of the box, and that’s before you even add modulation.
No need to stop there, though! Expand your palette even more by importing new wavetables. Try the many free and commercial wavetable libraries in the standard Serum format*, or create your own using the free, cross-platform WaveEdit, available in a custom version for the modwave. Layer wavetables with samples from the built-in, multi-gigabyte PCM library, import your own samples using Korg’s Sample Builder software, or load samples from the growing number of third-party libraries for wavestate and modwave.
* If an imported wavetable has more than 64 waveforms, it is assumed to be a generated crossfade, and some of the intermediate waveforms are dropped to create a 64-waveform version.
Each Program has two full-featured wavetable oscillators, plus a sub oscillator/noise generator and any of a dozen stereo filter types, including the aggressive MS-20, sweet Polysix, and the newly enhanced Multi Filter. Animate almost any parameter using the massively flexible modulation system, with four triggerable envelopes, five LFOs, dual mod processors and two key-track generators–plus multi-lane Motion Sequencing and Kaoss Physics. Layer two Programs together for double the possibilities.
Modwave Native is available to PC and Mac users (VST3, AU and AAX).
