Korg Drumlogue Hybrid Drum Machine

It’s time to take your musical process to a new creative level with incredible sounds, effects, customization, and sequencing. Let Korg’s new Drumlogue support your craft on your musical journey! Its heavy-duty, dynamic sequencer, customizable effects, and intuitive controls make Drumlogue a must-have in your studio.

Drumlogue’s Raw Analog Power

The Korg Drumlogue was conceived to provide the ultimate analog sound for your tracks. Subsequently, it delivers fantastically; featuring completely newly developed analog circuits by legendary Korg analog synth team engineer Junichi Ikeuchi. In fact, the depth and richness of its sound are on a whole new level.

New Analog Circuits – (Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Low Tom and High Tom)

Drumlogue has 4 analog circuits that will not just provide a solid foundation for your track, but make it stand out with harmonic richness. Tweak each drum with dedicated knobs on the front panel at any time without any menu diving. Therefore, you can quickly and intuitively fine-tune your sound on the fly.

For further sound exploration, each part provides many more parameters accessible through the powerful onboard sound editing system. Last but not least, each part on Drumlogue – analog or digital – has a dedicated volume knob that will make your mixing process incredibly smooth and easy.

Digital Flexibility

As the perfect partner for the analog section, Drumlogue provides 7 digital parts. It has 6 sample-based tracks and 1 synthesis-based (Multi-Engine). The sample-based parts can play any of the preloaded PCM banks on Drumlogue. You can also import your own User Samples to its memory, making Drumlogue an extremely versatile machine with virtually limitless sonic possibilities.

To start with, the 128 preloaded drum kits of Drumlogue will provide you with a wide variety of sounds spanning several genres so you can easily kick-start your tracks. For additional sounds, samples can easily be easily loaded into the Drumlogue just by connecting your Drumlogue to your computer via USB and simply drag-dropping your samples onto the main memory.

Multi-Engine and “Logue” SDK

The popular Multi Engine from the prologue and minilogue xd is now more powerful than ever. In addition to the Variable Phase Modulation (VPM) and Noise generator engines, the Multi Engine features a new User Custom slot that can play full-fledged synth voices that provide vast sonic possibilities, never before heard on a drum machine.

A True Sequencing Powerhouse

Drumlogue harnesses all of its sonic power to an extremely powerful internal sequencer that is flexible and easy to use. Tired of the same old beats? Drumlogue’s 64 step sequencer makes it easy and intuitive to create complex rhythm patterns and polyrhythms. Use innovative features such as per-step probability, alternate trigger patterns, micro offsets, groove patterns and more.

Drumlogue OLED Display

Thanks to its clear OLED display, it is also very easy to visually follow and edit your sequences.

Pattern Modes

Drumlogue is both great in the studio and playing live. With its Chain mode, creating long and interesting patterns is straightforward and clearly displayed. In Loop mode, you can switch between several variations to play your sequence in new and interesting ways. The Motion and Accent recording functions encourage new things on your track. Additionally, the Randomization function is there to help you even more.

Custom Synths

Drumlogue’s synth voices are not simply static waveforms. Custom synths can be built to not only generate sound but even implement built-in filters, LFOs, MIDI-controlled polyphony or other parameters. The only restriction for third-party developers is their creativity (and CPU usage!), giving you unbound sound exploration.

Exclusive Sinevibes Synth Plugin “Nano”

Korg has collaborated with popular “logue SDK” plugin developer “Sinevibes” to include a brand new synth plugin “Nano” as a factory preset on Drumlogue. This exclusive plugin explores the power behind the expanded Multi-Engine and will give all Drumlogue users a taste of this new platform.

“Nano” is a full-fledged virtual analog synth with a wide array of features and plenty of customizable parameters. The synth engine has dual oscillators with optional ring modulation, a 4-pole state-variable filter with a soft clipping distortion, built-in EG and built-in multi-waveform LFO.

Effects and Customization

Drumlogue includes high-quality Delay, Reverb and Master effects that can be used simultaneously. The send amounts for delay and reverb effects can be set independently for each part, and multiple return points are available. Each effect can implement up to 24 parameters, all easily accessed in the well laid out menu. Drumlogue can also load custom third party effects.

The master effects allow you to add a final polish to your sound. Master effects can be bypassed on a per-part basis, making it possible to send the effect to specific audio parts. A sidechain bus is also available to master effects which can make use of it. Also, Drumlogue has an audio input, so you can process other instruments through Drumlogue’s effect chain.

Drumlogue’s Connectivity

Drumlogue has a variety of inputs, outputs and connections, integrating seamlessly with your rig. Drumlogue’s USB-A port allows connectivity with other USB MIDI class-compliant devices. For example, control each part’s volume with the nanoKONTROL2 faders, or trigger sounds using the velocity-sensitive pads on the nanoPAD2.

Drumlogue has four individual audio outputs, in addition to the headphone and L/MONO and R outputs. You can assign any part to any output to expand routing options for external processing or multitrack recording. After that, Drumlogue easily syncs to your other gear via MIDI IN/OUT, SYNC IN/OUT, or to a computer-based DAW via USB.

Ease of Use

With simplicity and accessibility in mind, the most important parameters for your main drum parts all have dedicated knobs on the front panel. Its wide and clear OLED screen coupled with its simple UI with 4 dedicated encoder knobs makes the navigation process fast and smooth.

Form Factor, Design

Unlike most drum machines, Drumlogue’s main panel is slanted offering great ergonomics and improved visibility. With its sturdy aluminium body, brushed hairline finish, and wooden side panels, Drumlogue’s sleek and optimised design will add to your musical inspiration.
