Overview

Korg’s minilogue is the first polyphonic analog synthesizer with presets in its price range. With its powerful yet simple signal flow and extensive feature set, minilogue is designed to inspire and captivate musicians and analog enthusiasts on all levels.

The minilogue is idea for:

Musicians who already have a microKORG or similar mini keyboard synth, looking to renew or expand their synth arsenal

Non-synth players – because they’re easy to use, easy to play, and easy to own

Any analog enthusiast

At its heart, the minilogue is a four-voice, fully programmable polyphonic analog synth with 200 editable presets (100 preloaded) and a powerful, flexible architecture for amazing versatility in sound creation and exploration. It features a 16-step polyphonic note and motion sequencer, arpeggiator, and a tape-style delay. With its powerful, yet easy to understand signal flow, minilogue is designed to inspire and captivate musicians and analog enthusiasts on all levels.

A new Voice Mode lets users choose how the four available voices are configured; from Polyphonic to Duophonic, Unison to one-note Chords, and more. In addition to offering up information on presets and editable parameters, the OLED display also features a real-time oscilloscope, providing functional, fun, and eye-catching visual feedback for the sound being played; a feature never before seen on a hardware synth.

The uniquely curved, sand-blasted aluminum panel, real pyinkado wood back panel, 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.

Features
  • 4-voice polyphonic true-analog with 200 presets (100 preloaded, all editable)
  • 16-step polyphonic step and motion sequencer
  • Configure or limit the 4 available voices
  • Onboard tape-style delay
  • Chassis-mounted, metal shaft pots; rubbed-coated knobs

Been playing since the 70s, and this is the real thing; no DCOs here. Full, rich and present VCO sound. Way to go Korg!

Awesome Analog Polysynth

By Ben

from Huntsville, AL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Korg Minilogue 4-Voice Polyphonic Analog Synth:

I've owned many synthesizers over the years from Moog, Roland, Korg and many of the other major players in the synthesizer industry, and this is one of the best values for the money out there. The Minilogue has a massive sound, is easy to use, fun to play, and just sounds awesome.

I think it is a great option for someone new to synthesis, as it covers just about every facet of subtractive synthesis imaginable. It also gives you a 16 step sequencer and a built in delay. MIDI over USB. and Korg just released a patch librarian so you can add patches to the unit from your computer. Seasoned synthesists should also find it appealing, especially since it is a modern analog polysynth at a third the price of its closest competitors.

Downsides- they keys are small. Larger than minikeys, but still small. If this really bothers you, you can always plug a MIDI keyboard into it. The construction doesn't seem as solid as I had hoped. The aluminum faceplate is nice, but it and the plastic housing seems pretty lightweight, like it couldn't take much abuse. The HPF seems to have a limited range, although hopefully they can address that in future firmware updates.

Great Synth

By REN

from San Jose, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Korg Minilogue 4-Voice Polyphonic Analog Synth:

This is a great synth, and even better with the July 4th sale. These were backordered but I received this in a few days after I ordered it. I have to thank the Hollywood store for recommending this syntn, and GC for their excellent service.

One of he best features is the delay mode, if you raise the feedback the loop self oscillates! Poly mode is sweet too. And you can add motion sequence.

Patches are easy to create and you can build great sounds very quickly, and then save them. No need to add any FX after this synth.

If your interested, just buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Analog for All - nice surprises and huge range

By Josh

from NJ

Pros

  • 2 Oscillators per voice allows for massive mono
  • 4 LFO's - one per voice (allows for phase drift)
  • Amazingly comfortable and ergonomic
  • Can assign Glide as dedicated knob (Tempo)
  • Can route guitar through filter and delay
  • Careful use of envelope routing= amazing results
  • Drums, Organs, Flutes, Strings...
  • Easy to learn sound design with this layout
  • Filter is playable (with 2 Oscillators too)
  • Latest firmware REALLY improves env "clicking"
  • Pitch Bend lever routes to many attributes
  • Re-tuning osc's is easy (and needed after 2 hrs)
  • Set pots to "jump", "catch" or "scale"
  • Thick sheet metal top, REAL wood back

Cons

  • Audio In signal cannot trigger notes or gate
  • Modulation wheel (external MIDI) routes to Noise
  • No CV in/out
  • Oscillators do get out of tune after a few hours
  • Pitch bend lever controls only 1 thing at a time
  • Sequencer (16 step) is somewhat limiting
  • Sus. pedal (external MIDI) not routed to release

Best Uses

  • ... rather than digital sound menus
  • Laying down a bassline to accompany guitar
  • Performance w/ a band (not main instrument)
  • Using your ears to mimic or invent a sound

Comments about Korg Minilogue 4-Voice Polyphonic Analog Synth:

Issues first:
1) Online, you'll see lots of complaints about "clicking envelopes" - it was definitely obvious. When shipped, it comes with firmware 1.04. As soon as I upgraded to firmware 1.11, clicking almost disappeared - it's now more of a "character" type of click rather than "why is that so loud."

2) I plan to experiment to see if I can re-route the Mod wheel to something like LFO rate or others (currently routes to noise pot). Same with Sustain... Sustain seems to open the VCA EG sustain, but sustain pedal should really impact the release in my view, not sustain.

3) The Minilogue was plugged in and on for about 3 hours last night, fresh out of the box. While doing a design for a synth lead based on a Citizens & Saints song, I noticed the Oscillators were out of tune (not detuned... completely off pitch). I hit SHIFT+REC, osc's retuned and then it sounded fine. After a few hours, the keyboard bottom gets quite hot; that probably affects the tuning of the oscillators.

Surprises and Nice features:
1) No dedicated glide pot for adjusting mono synth slides on the fly, but within a patch you can sync Portamento to BPM rate, and the BPM is governed by the Tempo pot. BAM! Dedicated Glide pot.
2) Playing the Filter is such an awesome feature - it's like a third oscillator. I created a great deep organ sound using the 2 oscillators and the filter with high resonance (tune Filter to oscillators first). Can also play filter by itself (bass, or high whistle).
3) Pitch EG (Osc 2 only) is an awesome feature, along with cross mod.
4) EG can route to LFO rate or intensity, and by adjusting attack and decay, with LFO affecting filter, you can get it to play a couple delayed notes, or slide up or whatever you want to do with the EG - my favorite feature.
5) Delay has some noise (LP record type noise), but is GREAT. I piped my acoustic/electric guitar through this, and I was impressed at the results - you can dampen with filter, and then set delay.
