The Korg Wavestation is a virtual synthesizer than emulates the sounds of classic vintage Korg keyboards. It is controlled by a MIDI piano keyboard. However, in the absence of a MIDI keyboard, you can control the Korg Wavestation by using the computer keyboard. This is possible through the audio program Reaper, which allows users to input MIDI messages through a "virtual keyboard" that is controlled by the computer's default standard keyboard. The MIDI input can then be recorded and edited.

  1. 1

    Install the Korg Wavestation, and at the installation set-up menu, select for the program to install a VST plugin. It does not matter where on the computer it is installed to, but take note of the file path.

  2. 2

    Download and install Reaper. All the default installation options may be used. Once the installation is done, open Reaper. On the top menus across the screen, select the "Track" menu and choose "Insert Virtual Instrument On New Track."

  3. 3

    The plugin window will appear. Click "File" in the window and "Plugin Settings." Select "VST Settings" and in the VST directory, add the folder containing the Korg Wavestation. Apply all the changes, and back at the VST selection window, press F5.

  4. 4

    Choose to insert the Korg on the track. Back in the main project view, press Alt+B on the keyboard to bring up the program's virtual keyboard. The Korg can now be played with a computer keyboard.
