It’s the first day of AES, and already I’m seeing products that are bound to please everyone. In the everybody’s-gonna-want-one department, two products really stand out. The first is the the new Korg Wavedrum, a resurrection of a legendary electronic hand drum, brought up to date with new samples and new technology, at a price that can scarcely be believed. The other is the Novation Launchpad, a control surface with an 8×8 matrix of illuminated buttons designed for Ableton Live, but it works with any software, thanks to its built-in Automap support. Best of all, it will street for less than $200! Lots more details later. Back to the show!
