“This Korg Wavestation was made in Japan sometime during the early to mid 1990s. This stripped-down digital synth is basic and easy-to-operate. Features include Vector Joystick, mod and tuning wheels, LCD display and full range of output jacks, including headphones. This synth works perfectly and delivers a wide range of great tones. Finish has some scratches and marks. This synth is in very good condition. PDF player’s guide is included.” Link
“I am the single owner for this Korg Wavestation WS1 and have used it liberally since late 1990. It was my >beloved< primary synth until I went to software synthesis. Use has been about 98% studio and 2% stage. For the past several years and until recently, I mainly used it as a midi controller. Prior to that, I had several of my own custom sound programs but at some point, I must have performed a restore to the factory default presets. I have tested every control and in/outs and all are working.
I am starting out with an effort to sell for pick-up only in the Tampa Bay area because it is a costly beast to ship (~$150) and I want the buyer to get the best value possible.
While the keyboard is in fully working condition, it has the sort of surface wear you might expect of a +22 year old classic keyboard. The monochrome LCD works fine and is clearly legible in certain light conditions (see photo), but as many of these keyboards do, it needs a backlight replacement, which can be attained for less than $30 online (see example link below) and easily installed by the user (videos on youtube). I am also including (1) RAM program card that can store another 30 or so programs but the card itself needs a replacement of the small lithium battery to work (a few bucks maybe). I took the photos in crisp solar light so every surface scratch (and unfortunately some lint and dust) is clearly visible. The photos make it look worse than it actually does in person. I'd call it 'very good' condition for the age though I've seen some spotless examples out there over $500. All screen printed lettering is intact and clearly legible. " Link
“This auction is for a used Korg Wavestation EX synthesizer. I am the original owner and bought the keyboard brand new(sometime in the early 1990′s as I recall). For the majority of time, this keyboard has sat unused in my home closet. Also note this keyboard has been used/stored in a smoke-free home.
Included in this auction, besides the Wavestation EX keyboard, are the following original items that came with the Wavestation keyboard when I purchased it:
- AC power cable
- Wavestation Player’s Guide Manual
- Wavestation Reference Guide Manual
- Korg WPC-00PIII Internal Pre-Load Data (Bank 3) Memory Card
I had the internal memory battery replaced in 2011. I tested the keyboard out today by hooking up the stereo outputs to a mixer. All 61 keys, all the buttons, and the vector joystick worked fine. Moving the volume control up and down didn’t produce any “static” I could detect. The LCD display, including the backlight, function fine(see close-up pics).
The keyboard has the original patches in the “ROM” bank. RAM1 and RAM2 are just a copy of the ROM patches with a few of my own patches I created. The included WPC-00PIII memory card has a different set of patches than what exists in ROM.
I’ve only used this keyboard in my home. I have not toured with it/used it on the road. The vast majority of time it has been sitting in my closet in storage. ” Link
Ich habe die WS-EX erst selbst im März wegen eines neuen Bandprojekts gebraucht gekauft.
Die EL-Folie ist neu (leuchtet grün!), Batterie ist getauscht und das Instrument ist gereinigt.
Leider klappert die mittlere H-Taste ein wenig, aber ich möchte den Synthie nicht mehr aufschrauben.
Hat auch keinen Einfluß auf das Spielen.
Da dem Vorbesitzer das EX-Logo wohl abgegangen ist, hat er selbst ein fettes EX draufgeklebt.
Ein kleines Manko ist das numerische Feld, da müsste mal Kontaktspray ran. Ich habe es fast nicht benutzt, da ich das Dial und die Pfeiltasten verwendet habe.
Mit dabei sind Netzkabel, Sustainpedal, Case und die WPC-00PIII Internal Pre-Load Data (Bank 3)
Handbücher gibts im Netz, einfach googlen. Das Gerät hat die Werkssounds geladen.
Ich habe für die WS in diesem Topzustand, die Card und das Case über 400€ bezahlt…” Link

Korg Wavestation EX, complete with power cable. Serial number 300090.
4 performance data cards (WPC-OOP III – Internal sound bank 3, WPC-11 – Performance 1, WPC-13 – Performance 3 and WPC-16 – Wavestation Omnibus)
Also included a separate user guide, “Korg Wavestation” by Dan Walker which teaches you how to synthesize new sounds and program effects etc.
Also including spare internal CMOS battery. I have had to change this once recently in 18 years of ownership.
Unfortunately the original box hasn’t survived the past 18 years.
The Wavestation EX is an upgraded version of the original wavestation with double the amount of internal memory (4MB instead of 2). It has more samples (mainly drums + piano) and 8 more effects.
The keyboard is in perfect working order; all keys, buttons and sliders are operational. The 2 internal RAM banks are empty due to the battery being changed. You can however download the preloaded sounds from Korg’s support website and restore them. You will need a USB-MIDI cable and some software for your PC in order to play the sounds back to the keyboard in order to do this though. I have sucessfully downloaded the sounds, and software utility (MIDI-OX is free and easy to use), but don’t have a working USB-MIDI cable.
It has been gigged with a couple of times after I first bought it back in the early 90′s, but since then has pretty much been in a case (not included) or used occasionally in the home. It really is in fantastic condition considering its age.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Korg Wavestation EX Synthesizer.
The keyboard does play and make sound. Many of the buttons do not respond. One of the F sharp the highest key) gets stuck when pressed. The LCD is no longer back-lit.

“FOR SALE IS MY PERSONAL KORG WAVESTATION A/D SYNTHESIZER RACK MODULE. I HAVE OWNED IT FOR ABOUT SEVEN YEARS AND IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN RACK MOUNTED IN MY STUDIO RACK. ALL FACTORY SOUNDS ARE IN TACT AND IT WORKS GREAT. I AM ALSO INCLUDING THE KORG WAVESTATION RESCUE KIT CD WHICH I PURCHASED ON EBAY FROM THE MAKER. THIS CD INCLUDES ALL FACTORY DOCUMENTATION AND OVER 1000 PATCHES. THIS IS A REALLY, REALLY GREAT PIECE OF GEAR AND I HATE TO HAVE TO SELL IT.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“THIS SYNTH WAS BRILLIANT AND COULD DO ANY KIND OF NOISES BUT UNFORTUANETLY A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK IT STOPPED PRODUCING ANY OUTPUT AT ALL ALTHOUGH IT STILL WORKS AS A MIDI CONTROLLER AND EVERYTHING LIGHTS UP AND KNOBS ETC WORK AS THEY SHOULD. I DID LOOK AT IT BACK THEN BUT TO NO AVAIL SO WAS PUT AWAY AS YOU DO.
SO IT SHOULD POSSIBLY BE AN EASY REPAIR FOR SOMEONE WITH TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE.
MUST ALSO SAY THAT IT WAS CONVERTED TO RUN ON 110v AS WE USED IT IN THE THE STATES WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS AND WHEN USED IN THE UK IT PERFORMED BEAUTIFULLY.
THE TRANSFORMER OBVIOUSLY COMES WITH IT, INSTRUCTIONS ARE LONG GONE BUT CAN BE DOWNLOADED ON THE NET. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“For sale we have a Korg Wavestation SR vector synthesizer.
The Wavestation is a classic synthesizer, great for atmospheric and evolving pads. Vector synthesis provides an exciting way to add movement and depth to your sounds.
The Wavestation SR is the final model of the Wavestation family, it comes as a single rackspace unit and includes a large number of preset sounds and wavesequences
The machine is in excellent condition, with very minor scuffs/scratches from rackmounting (see photos)
All buttons and the display work as expected. Overall, a very amazing machine!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“I have no idea whether it works or not but it does start up fine and the lights and display illuminate fine. As I have no equipment to connect it to I cannot confirm its in any kind of working order other than aforementioned display so please assume it is not working and bid accordingly. If it does work then someone is going to get a bargain! ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“I am the original owner of this Wavestation. i bought it new and had the upgrade performed at Apple Music in Portland, OR. This keyboard has spent all of its life in a smoke free studio. It makes some amazing textured sounds, pads and swells are full and very rich. It also has some great punchy synth sounds.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“Korg Wavestation synth for spares or repair only. It’s in good condition, apart from the C5 key chipped slightly on the underside. The backlight is also slightly dim, as they are on most Wavestations these days.
As to the fault – it simply won’t power on. The problem is likely to be with the power board, but I have neither the time nor inclination to fix it myself. It really shouldn’t be that hard to fix for anyone with a multimeter and some electrical skills, but I make no guarantees. If you can’t fix it, then most of the parts should be available to use in another Wavestation or possibly Korg M1 (I think some parts were shared).
Aside from this, it *was* in perfect working order, having been recently cleaned out and a recently changed battery.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“verkaufe mein Synthesizer Korg Wavestation A/D in neuwertigem Zustand.
Sehr wenig gebraucht.
Viel muss man zu der Korg Wavestation A/D ja nicht sagen” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
Unfortunately my passion for the music does not translate into actual ability !
The synth operates perfectly, the keyboard and pitch/mod wheels and all buttons operate and the audio outs are all good.
There are some light marks on the casing and some light scratches to a few keys but none of this affects the playability – still fantastic condition for a 20 year old board.
A new internal battery was fitted a month or so ago so patches etc are all held in memory properly.
The LCD backlight has failed, however the LCD is clear to read in normal lighting (see image 5). These are available from an eBay user in Canada for about £22 delivered and are not hard to install.
I do not have the original manuals or disks, but have complied a nice collection of info and patches that I will supply on a CDR. A standard IEC mains lead is also included.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
