Musikmesse 2011 VIDEO: Korg Demonstrate Wavedrum Oriental

Musikmesse 2011: Korg Demonstrate the Wavedrum Oriental
Great Deals on Korg Instruments

Korg demonstrate the Wavedrum Oriental at Musikmesse 2011 for Gear4music.com.

Launched in January, the Wavedrum Oriental boasts a massive infusion of popular, unique, and accurate Arabic percussion sounds, all eminently playable from the dynamic rim and real drum head surface.

The WAVEDRUM is distinguished by its revolutionary synthesis technology, and by an interface that allows a direct physical method of performance, making it the ideal instrument for replicating and articulating these exacting Arabic sounds.

All of these sounds faithfully simulate the distinctive ways in which the tone is affected by subtle nuances in playing technique and the position of the strike on these acoustic instruments, the Darbuka with its thin single skin, the Riq with its single skin and jingles, and the dual-skinned Bendir.

Together with the 150 user programs, you can now choose from a total of 300 variations.

The body is a white tone reminiscent of a high-quality darbuka's ceramic body, complemented by a deep red wine-colored rim suggestive of the riches of Arabian culture.
