We’ve all worked with one… you know who they are. Constantly “drumming” on their desks, pretending they’re Neil Peart or Mike Portnoy. They are typically sadly mistaken, but yet they continue to subject everyone around them to their tapped-out syncopation in a seemingly endless string of solos.

Korg has the solution. The Wavedrum Mini is a portable drum synthesizer small enough to take anywhere you might feel the urge to start tapping away. It can be strapped to your leg, and has a drum pad integrated so you can drum directly on it, but it also has a sensor clip that will turn just about anything into a musical instrument. When you start tapping, it translates the taps into drums and stringed instruments.

There are 100 sounds, 100 rhythm patterns, and 10 preset audio effects pre-programmed, as well as an on-board Looper and an integrated 1.3W speaker. You can use headphones with it if you feel like being considerate to those around you (that guy at the office won’t, but maybe you can convince your spouse).

Pricing has not yet been announced, but it is supposed to be debuting in the third quarter of this year.
