Here’s another sneak peak at the Korg Wavedrum Mini, which looks like it will be a blast to play with – and just as interesting to synthesists as it is to percussionists.

It’s in Japanese – but has little need for translation.

Watch for the ‘cheese grater’ jam! Read more…

Musikmesse 2011: One of the coolest things we’ve seen from this year’s Musikmesse is the new Korg Wavedrum Mini.

The Korg Wavedrum Mini is a compact percussion synthesizer, with built-in speaker, battery-powered portability and a cool sensor clip that turns just about anything into a percussion instrument. Using the sensor clip and the pad allows two sounds to be played at once.


  • Portable percussion synthesizer built on Korg’s renowned Wavedrum technology.
  • Play two sounds at once for a rich musical experience:
  • Play one sound from the dynamic pad.
  • Play a second sound from any surface or object using the sensor clip.
  • 100 Ready-to-play sounds ranging from acoustic tones to synthetic sounds.
  • 100 Rhythm patterns serve as a rhythmic guide or provide jam-along-fun.
  • 10 Preset audio effects; select any effect and enhance any sound.
  • On-board Looper allows unlimited overdub layering for complex, multi-sound patterns.
  • Share your sounds using the built-in speaker, or practice using headphones.
  • Battery operation lets you play with confidence on the street, outdoors or anywhere.
  • AC Adapter and mounting strap are included.

The sensor clip seems like a killer feature, bringing an element of experimental performance into a mainstream device.

Pricing and availability are TBA.
