The Korg Wavedrum Mini is exactly what it looks like: A portable synthetic drum machine that plays the usual litany of percussion sounds and beats on the go. What’s interesting beyond that is the tiny clip.
According to Korg, the clip can be attached to a variety of surfaces (e.g. table tops), at which point the musician can wail away with wanton abandon and create some synthesized sounds that way as well. The promotional material even hints that you can attach the clip to a cup and tap out a tune that way, although we should all probably wait until later this year for an official demo before we start lining up coffee mugs for impromptu breakfast table drum solos.
No price yet, so interested percussionists should keep at eye on the Q3 portion of this year for more info. [Gizmag]
