What we say:

At A Glance:

The Minilogue XD is a staff favourite here at guitarguitar, and the Module version fits nicely into a setup where you don’t require the keyboard. It is a fantastic four-voice analogue synthesizer that is packed with great features. You’ll find two rich analogue VCOs, a digital multi-engine oscillator, a great step sequencer, studio grade effects and more on board. There is so much that we love about the Minilogue XD Module, and we’ll cover our favourite bits here.

Features We Love:

Affordable Analogue Synthesizer

The Minilogue XD Module features a great sounding analogue synthesis circuit. You have two analogue VCOs, a smooth filter and a flexible amp and LFO section. It also has four-voice polyphony, and a handy switch which lets you change the voice mode between polyphonic, unison, chord and arpeggiator modes. We highly recommend unison mode for massive bass sounds, and polyphonic for lush pads!

Multi-Engine Oscillator

One of our favourite features on the Minilogue XD Module is the digital Multi-Engine Oscillator. This adds a whole new layer of flexibility to the synth. It can perform virtual analogue duties, which is like having a third analogue oscillator essentially. But it gets a lot more interesting than that. It can do things only a digital engine can do, such as wavetable synthesis. What’s more, you can load third-party sounds to this engine via logue SDK. We’ve heard pianos and other acoustic instruments loaded into this thing!

Step-Sequencer with Motion Mode

While we’d love to talk about all the great effects on the Minilogue XD Module, the step sequencer MUST be mentioned. It features 16 easy to program step buttons on the front panel, which is an upgrade from 8 on the original Minilogue. What is really interesting to us, is the Motion Mode feature. You can use this to automate values per step, with up to 4 lanes of different automation. This includes parameters such as the filter cutoff, VCO pitch, delay time, LFO rate and most other controls. Easily one of our favourite features.

Highlights:

  • Four-Voice Analogue Synthesizer
  • Digital Multi Engine
  • Module version fits neatly into a studio or live rig
  • Studio Grade effects
  • Amazing step sequencer with motion mode
  • Compact and affordable

Specification

minilogue xd module is the new desktop module version of minilogue xd, the four-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer with a customizable digital multi-engine and built-in stereo digital effects.

The desktop module is equipped with the same controllers as the keyboard version, making it a great choice not only as an additional sound module for your keyboard or DAW but also providing excellent performability, giving you an easy way to include an analog polyphonic synth in your setup. It's also equipped with a poly-chain function that lets you connect it with another minilogue xd or minilogue xd module so that the two units can operate as a polysynth with a total of up to eight voices in your studio or on stage.

Add the sounds of the minilogue xd to your setup or system!

Equipped with an analog synthesizer circuit and a digital multi-engine

Voice structure of minilogue xd is 2VCO + MULTI ENGINE, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. In addition to the distinctive circuits found in the series, such as wave shaping to shape the overtones of the oscillator and a sync/ring switch, there's also cross modulation, a two-pole filter that can be both sharp and fat, and a drive switch that adds thickness and drives signal into minilogue xd’s filter. Every parameter has been tuned in detail based on what musicians want out of their synth. The sounds range from the warm pads typical of analog to fat basses and crisp lead sounds, covering every situation.

The additional sound design possibilities of digital sound are delivered by the multi-engine: the third oscillator in addition to the two analog VCOs. This engine, which is equipped with three different types of sound generator (noise, VPM, and open-source user oscillators) lets you take advantage of a sonic character that's different than analog, and use it at the same time as the analog engine, infinitely expanding xd module’s potential through hybrid sound design.

High-quality digital effects

minilogue xd’s high-quality digital effects use 32-bit floating point DSP processing, adding a finishing touch to its deep sound design platform. The three types (modulation effects, reverb, and delay) can be used simultaneously, letting you choose from a wide range of variations including chorus, ensemble, warm tape delay, and a diverse variety of reverb. The user effect slots allow you to load your own effect programs that you've created.

Polyphonic Step Sequencer

One of the major features of the minilogue xd series is its 16-step step sequencer. Each of the factory-preset programs has an embedded sequence pattern created with performance in mind.

The step sequencer provides 16 steps, and supports both realtime recording and step recording. You can use the 16 step buttons to select a step directly, allowing quick editing to replace the pitch of a step or to mute it, or even improvisatory performances. Motion sequence lets you record the movements of up to four knobs, adding time-varying change to the sound, and you can record not only smooth changes in value but also values that change precisely at each step. You can use this to have different parameter values at each step; for example, you might create a drum pattern or sound effect from just a single program. This allows countless ideas to be unleashed.

When you turn Keyboard mode on, these 16 buttons operate as a keyboard of more than an octave, providing a convenient way to check the sound.

Poly chain support

The minilogue xd module can be used in conjunction with another unit in the minilogue xd series for poly assignment settings. Specify one unit as the master and the other as the slave, and they will play as an eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer. This supports a variety of uses, such as a voice-expansion module for the minilogue xd or as a sound module for a DAW-based production system.
