hey thete all!!... im new today to the korg forums and recently bought a korg wavedrum..the new ones...I love this thing..its amazing for when i record but i had one question regarding the sound? Take in mind im not a drummer so it could be some thing easily fixable but when i strike the pad in thr upper right region it seems like its a more highet pitched tighter sound then anywhere else..i think i have this thong tuned properly but maybe not...does this sound like anything else..im just trying to get an even tone across?

thanks guys!

Search WaveDrummer and see his thread that has how to tune the wavedrum it will help. I am making the assumption you have a full sized wavedrum in which case that piece that extends over the head covers and protects a pick up which is under the head so any strikes closer to that will create more sound for that pickup.

Yes, playing on the edge of the head, especially closer to the main transducer, will elicit different sounds and textures. The "feel" of the head will also be "livelier" and bouncier as you get closer to the rim and away from the more deadened feel of the center of the head (which has the pressure sensor directly below it).

Try thinking of the Wavedrum as an instrument unto itself. Learning "how" to play it and how to conjure the greatest variety of sounds out of it is, at least, half the fun!

Experiment with a variety of sticks, mallets, brushes, etc. Try applying different amounts of pressure to the head while playing. Doing these things will open up entirely new worlds of sound. Trust me!
