Korg Ships New Wavedrum Mini
— Company expands line with self-contained, go-anywhere dynamic percussion synthesizer—

MELVILLE, NY, October 11, 2011 — Korg is now shipping the Wavedrum Mini, which borrows technology from the popular Wavedrum series. Completely self-contained, the Wavedrum Mini provides a playable pad, speaker, sounds, effects, patterns and a loop recorder, as well as a Sensor Clip to transform any object into a second sound source.

The Wavedrum Mini offers 100 professionally programmed and ready-to-play sounds, from acoustic-emulating drum and percussion to cutting-edge sounds possible only on a synthesizer. Bass, tuned percussion and stringed instruments are also included, allowing both rhythmic and melodic performances.

Sounds can be easily and expressively triggered from Wavedrum Mini’s pad. Additional sounds can be accessed at the same time by attaching the Sensor Clip to a table top, cup, a user’s foot or any object, transforming the object into a percussion instrument. In addition, 10 high-quality multi-effects are available, from spatial-type effects (delay, chorus, and reverb), modern effects including filters and pitch-shifters that radically transform the sound, and distortion-type effects that deliver analog-style warmth.  Any effect can be quickly applied to either sound.

The Wavedrum Mini contains 100 rhythm patterns covering a range of styles. These patterns can be used as a beginner’s guide to help keep a steady rhythm, or to keep the groove going while performing or jamming. In addition to the preset patterns, the Looper function will record and play back any Wavedrum Mini performance. An unlimited number of overdubs can be added, creating complex, multi-sound patterns (total record length is 25 seconds).

The Wavedrum Mini is highly portable; it can be enjoyed any place, at any time. An AC adapter is included; the Wavedrum Mini can also run on batteries, making it ideal for outdoor use or street performances. The built-in speaker allows the Wavedrum Mini to be used alone, for a performance or on the spur of the moment at an impromptu jam session. A headphone output is also available for private practice.

For jam sessions or street performances in particular, the Wavedrum Mini comes with a strap, so that it can be secured to a seated performer. The Sensor Clip can then be attached to the upper opening of the performer’s shoe. Tapping the foot will create one sound; playing the pad, another, creating a simple kit.

The Wavedrum Mini is now available with a U.S. MSRP of $430.00. For more information, please visit www.korg.com.
