I really love the sound of the Wavestation synths and the SR is the nicest one. I do feel, however, that the keyboard Wavestations are more fun to use because using the joystick is very satisfying. The sound quality of the SR is brilliant and beautiful. Everything that comes out of it evolves and breathes.

First i have to say that the sound of the Wavestation is irreplacable even if some people think so. This is the ultimate pad machine. I had ALL Wavestations like Wavestation EX, A/D and SR. I now found out that the ultimate wavestation besides the SR is the software version in the "Korg Legacy Collection Digital Edition". First it sounds exactly like the real thing and with the new update (V1.6) it includes the missing filter resonance. Second it contains all patches of the Wavestation SR plus all memory cards ever produced for the WS and even more. Third thing is that it is compatible with the original sysex-files of the WS. The last thing is that due to the excellent interface the software version is easy to program which always was a problem in the hardware versions. What i forgot is that it costs less then any second hand hardware version (149 euros!!) and includes also the legendary M1 (it´s more a T1) synth. I guess i will buy a Wavestation keyboard again to use it as a controller for the software.

I love the sound of this synth. For years I was biased against it because of the lack of resonant filters ("can't be a REAL synth"). The I heard one - and I realised I just had to have one. The vector aspects combined with wave sequencing means it can produce sounds you just don't get from other synths.

I eventually got an SR from Ebay for £160 and it is fantastic. It's packed full of excellent presets. As others have said, it is great at slowly evolving pads and atmospherics. However it just seems to have great presence and even 'ordinary' sound like basses, leads etc sound great. The only downside is that the nature of the synthesis means that many voices are required to make up the best performances - so realistically it is not multitimbral. But even just one of those mighty Wavestation sounds can really lift a track.

I first heard this synth, after buying a Korg M1,in 1990, Wow, and after wanting one for so long, and after getting a trinity, to replace the broken M1, i went on a synth buying crusade, and got my Wavey 10 years after i always wanted one. Then, like an arse, i traded it for an SY85, after some guy said it done evolving pads, and was amazing. Dohhhh!. The flipside is now i have both, and the SR i bought cost me an absolute bargain, £120. This thing is mesmerising, Go to soundtower and get there software editor, and then change the Wavesequences, assign all sorts of rountings to the modulation, its Awesome, Evolving soundscapes, Alien Deserts, Ethereal sunsets, Ambient organic, textures. Still nothing like it today, and something that Korg should have kept with, and evolved it further. This 1 U rack is powerful, and the presets dont scratch the surface of the capabilitys. Downside is , its the most time consuming pig to edit without software editing. With that, this will go down as an all time classic for years to come. For once Korg did do something right. Even though theyre support is crud.

just noticed that below, there's a guy who says the WaveStation SR will kick every other pad machine in the teeth. Id like to reitterate that.
