Korg Minilogue XD
The Korg Minilogue XD is the next generation analogue synthesizer designed to take your sound to the next level. Building on the success of the Minilogue the Minilogue XD features the same ‘approachable’ layout and workflow, but with a lot more under the hood! The Minilogue XD adds a digital multi-engine, effects, a powered-up sequencer, and micro tuning functionality. Further expanding the possibilities for sound design and performance potential. A powerful instrument for modern musicians with huge potential for sound design and performance.
Combining the best from monologue, minilogue, and Prologue
Korg essentially combined player-favourite features from their monologue, minilogue, and Prologue synthesizers. The most notable features from the minilogue are the familiar compact form factor, 4-voice architecture, multiple voice modes, and the arpeggiator (now with latch function). From the monologue, we get the motion step sequencer, the monologue’s re-voiced filter, and the ability to overdrive your signal going into the filter. And from the Prologue we get the digital multi-engine, providing the third oscillator per voice, and multiple stereo effects.
Digital multi-engine for FM, wavetable, and effects
The Korg minilogue XD features the digital multi-engine first presented in the Prologue synthesizer. This gives you access to an FM/wavetable oscillator you can layer with the analog oscillators in each voice. It’s sound generators include noise, variable phase modulation (VPM), and a user oscillator for your own custom oscillators (16 user slots available). This greatly expands your sonic potential beyond typical analog synth sounds. In addition to adding an oscillator, the digital multi-engine delivers deep-sounding effects using 32-bit floating-point processing.
Four voice modes for creative performance options
While the Korg minilogue XD offers delightful polyphonic playability, you can also choose Unison mode to make it an all-unison monosynth. While the Chord mode produces chords with a single key press. Arp/Latch mode features the arpeggiator with up to four voices, and it can also be used while the sequencer is running. Whether you’re looking for musical inspiration or preparing for a live performance, the minilogue XD’s flexible voice modes offer big creative potential.
