Korg intros WAVEDRUM Mini

At this year’s Winter NAMM Korg showed off its WAVEDRUM Oriental, a cracking limited edition drum pad eaturing a wide range of Arabic percussion sounds.

Now it has revealed the WAVEDRUM Mini, featuring the classic WAVEDRUM technology but in a smaller, more portable form.


Not only does it has a built-in speaker and run off batteries but it features a sensor clip allowing any object to be transformed in an instrument.

Effectively this means you can use a second surface to trigger a second sound on the Wavedrum. Attach the sensor clip to another object or surface and it instantly becomes another trigger point. That’s very cool.

Feature Highlights

  • 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
