The Korg Wavestation EX is a keyboard synthesizer released by Korg in 1991. It is an enhanced version of the original Wavestation, featuring a larger waveform ROM (4Mb instead of 2Mb, 119 new waveforms), bigger quantity of effects (+8 effects). Owners of the regular Wavestation got the EXK-WS upgrade kit to convert their keyboards to the EX version. 

The Wavestation EX is capable of producing a wide range of sounds, from classic analog-style synthesizer sounds to complex, evolving textures and this synth is still considered a very capable machine by many musicians.
