Your next tour with the Rolling Stones may be years and dreams away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take the smash set with you. Korg’s all-new Wavedrum Mini offers up 100 samples, 10 audio effects and 100 rhythms which can then be recorded with an unlimited number of overdubs using the on-board looper. Battery or AC power, built-in speaker and headphone jack mean you can share your sweet new beats publically or keep them to yourself. However, none of that compares to what we think is the Wavedrum’s greatest feature: the sensor clip. If you’re bored with the built-in dynamic pad simply attach the included sensor clip to any object and instantly turn it into a second percussion instrument. Table, chair or neighboring cubicle wall, the choice is entirely yours.
