We don’t just stick any old synth on the cover here at FM, and this issue’s cover star is something pretty special.

Korg’s Wavestation is a classic instrument – a wonderfully oddball source of complex textures and evolving sounds. It remains one of the best ambient instruments out there, beloved by ravers, composers and soundtrack creators alike. The company’s long-overdue follow-up, the Wavestate, is more than just a classic revival though; it cleverly updates the original’s engine bringing its sound design tools into the 21st century. Grab the issue now to read our full, in-depth review.
