Korg Prologue16

The Korg Prologue16 is a fully-programmable, full-featured, professional synthesizer. Preceded by the four-voice polyphonic minilogue and the monophonic monologue, it’s the long awaited debut of the flagship: the prologue.  Prologue is a polyphonic analog synthesizer equipped with a full-sized 61-key keyboard. With powerful analog circuits that are descended directly from the earlier models of the series, together with a newly developed digital multi engine and gorgeous DSP-based effects, prologue expands the variety of sounds and the possibilities for user customization.

Updated analog filter with drive and gain compensation

Korg created an all-new filter design for the Prologue synthesizer. This smooth-sounding filter features a dedicated drive circuit for adding harmonic richness, with a low-frequency compensation switch for maintaining powerful bass. While heavy overdrive can rob a signal of its bass impact, this switch allows you to add sizzling distortion while keeping the low end rock solid.

Four voice modes for creative performance options

While the Prologue offers impressive polyphonic appeal, you can also choose monophonic voice operation for playing classic lead and bass lines. Unison mode operates as an all-unison monosynth. And Chord mode produces chords with a single key press. Whether you’re looking for musical inspiration, or preparing for a live performance, Prologue’s flexible voice modes offer big creative potential.

Single- and dual-timbre modes

Like many Korg synths, Prologue offers multiple ways to create custom patches. In addition to single-timbre mode, Prologue features three dual-timbre modes for combining sounds. Split mode allows you to assign two different sounds to two different sections of the keyboard, while Layer mode allows you to play two sounds simultaneously across the entire keyboard. Crossfade mode offers even more performance potential, basically combining the two modes to create a smooth sonic transition between zones on the keyboard
