The Legacy Collection arrived at Sonic Towers the other day for review - "What! How come you had to wait?" I hear you ask, well to be honest, the Legacy has proved to be quite popular and as a result, hard to track down, even for the press. Being the cynical type, I took the effusive comments from Korg emplyees with a pinch of salt, until I had a chance to play with it myself. It really is rather good.
Korg have now updated the software with 1.01 adding a number of enhancements for the WAVESTATION synth, many based on popular requests from users.
Version 1.0.1 WAVESTATION new features include:
The ability to now reset any parameter edit by clicking on the parameter while holding the command or ctrl key.
An output gain parameter for increasing the WAVESTATION's level by +6 or +12 dB to better match other instruments in the mix.
The ability to load mixed Sys Ex Data (multiple data types stored into a single file), which is commonly found on Internet user group sites for the original WAVESTATION.
Additionally, Version 1.1 has been announced for release in late August and will include:
The ability to edit multiple steps of a wavesequence at the same time when desired
A Snap function for setting the duration of steps in a wavesequence to a note value (1/4, 1/8, 1/16, etc.), as determined by MIDI clock.
For the MS-20/MS-20FX:
The list of available external modulation Patch Point parameters has been expanded for increased creative sound design and control.
New sounds are also continuously being developed and posted at /www.korguser.net, the authorized Korg Legacy registration/support site. Both OS versions are free for registered users, and will be posted to the same website.
