Product Overview

Manufacturer's ID: MINILOGUE

The Korg Minilogue made a big impression when it was first released and rightly so. A winner of the prestigious Best in Show award at NAMM 2016, the Minilogue has been turning heads since it was first rumoured. Coming in at an unbelievable price point, the capabilities of the Minilogue easily match a great deal of high end competitors.

With space for 100 initialised sounds, the potential for sound design is incredible. It’s a four-part polyphonic synth and has the capability to play up to four notes at a time when set to Poly mode. Offering on board effects, the Minilogue was made to perform both live and in the studio. Its 2 oscillators and eight voice modes allow you to tap into a mass of sounds ranging from thick mono subs, powerful leads, hypnotising arpeggiators to an intuitive chord mode. This creates adaptable chords from a single note and is sure to inspire creativity, particularly if you’re a novice player without much experience of playing a synth’s keyboard.

If that sounds a little daunting to you, not to worry, the Minilogue also comes with 100 presets created to accent the intricacies of its design, especially its warm analog tone.

One of the most appealing things about the Minilogue is the way it lies on the borderline between vintage and modern. While it provides all the warmth that analog synths are known for, it offers far more connectivity to ensure that it doesn’t become a relic sitting in the corner of your studio. Particularly, the ability to transmit MIDI data via USB, which minimises many of the complications of recording vintage analog models.

It has a solid build and looks totally stunning. Korg have maintained a retro style with a modern flair and it’s easily one of the sleekest and most stylish models they’ve ever produced. Its compact keys are small but comfortable to play and easy to get used to. It also has an Oscilloscope which allows you to look at the waveform of what you’re playing – a cool feature for any synth geeks and a useful learning tool!

Put simply, there’s a reason it was catching so many people’s eyes at NAMM; it looks phenomenal and lives up to its appearance. The Minilogue from Korg is a high-quality synth at a price that seems ridiculous considering what it can do.

Minilogue’s newly developed analog synthesizer circuit delivers polyphony and full programmability at a great price --- exactly what today's musician needs. With the minilogue, you can get your hands on the powerful sound that's only possible with real analog, and find inspiration with features including a polyphonic step and motion sequencer, on board tape-style delay, multiple sound shaping and filter options, and an oscilloscope display. All of these seamlessly integrated features make minilogue as fun and easy to use as it is powerful. It's the next-generation analog synthesizer for musicians of all types.

Polyphony and Presets – Perfect.
minilogue goes beyond analog synths in its price range by adding 200 preset locations. Select a program for instant access to great sounds - - ranging from thick basses to deep pads to brilliant polyphonic leads and atmospheric sounds. No need to have deep synthesis knowledge; just choose a sound and tweak - a workflow that is very familiar with musicians today. For those who want to dive deeper into the heart and soul of minilogue’s engine, the minilogue hold 200 programs; with 100 editable factory programs included, and 100 locations serving as blank canvases on which to create your next analog masterpiece. Each preset can also hold a step sequence and delay settings along with the sounds you create.

Voice modes.
Selectable voice modes let you freely configure the four voices for performance. The voices can be set to four note polyphony for chords or layered for thick basses and leads. Other modes cover a range of sounds from octave shifted bass explosions to delicately staggered layered triggering.

Eight voice modes

  • POLY ... operates as a four-voice polyphonic synthesizer
  • DUO ... operates as a unison two-voice polyphonic synthesizer
  • UNISON ... operates as an all-unison mono synthesizer
  • MONO ... operates as a mono synth with sub-oscillator
  • CHORD ... produces chords
  • DELAY ... voices 2--4 sound consecutively at a delay following voice 1
  • ARP ... an arpeggiator operates with up to four voices
  • SIDE CHAIN ... when a note sounds, the volume of the preceding voice is lowered

16-step sequencer.
Get creative with the intuitive 16-step sequencer with motion sequence recording capabilities, and make your sound truly come to life. The minilogue provides real-time recording with overdubbing, and step recording that lets you record simply by consecutively specifying notes, giving you a great way to create phrases and performances.

Oscilloscope visualizes the sound.
The OLED display will show the waveform as you sculpt your sound. Visual feedback is both educational and entertaining, and represents a first on a hardware synthesizer.

Build quality.
The uniquely curved, sand-blasted 2mm aluminum front panel, metal shaft potentiometers, solid, chassis- mounted metal shaft potentiometers and rubber-coated knobs give the roadworthy minilogue a standout look and feel to complement its powerful and dynamic sound creation capabilities.

Sync with groove machine.
In addition to the standard MIDI connectors, the minilogue provides a sync connector that can be easily connected to Korg's groove machines. Connect this to a volca series unit, an electribe, or the SQ-1, and experience a session with synchronized sequencer playback.
