Korg has revealed an updated Wavestate MKII and announced the release of an all-new 61-key version of the synth, the Wavestate SE, also available in silver as the Wavestate SE Platinum. Like the original Wavestate, both synths are based around Korg’s Wave Sequencing 2.0 synthesis technology, but have been updated with redesigned hardware, workflow tweaks and new features. 

Boasting a (moderately) refreshed visual aesthetic, the MKII expands the Wavestate’s polyphony from 64 stereo voices to 96 and features a variety of newly-designed Wave Sequences and Programs. There’s also an expanded 4GB (up from 2GB) of internal storage for loading your own sounds into Wavestate using Korg’s Sample Builder application.
