The Prologue is Korg’s latest polyphonic synth, available in 8- and 16-voice models. It has analogue oscillators and filters, and also a digital ‘multi-engine’ oscillator and digital effects. It’s these last two aspects that Korg has made open-source, so programmers can get amongst the code and write their own. Sounds easy! It is… if you know C/C++ pretty well and are OK with having no technical support from Korg!

Ask any musician what their least favourite part about gigging is and it is highly likely that they will say loading the car at the end of the night. We’ve all been there, thrown everything possible at an audience for two hours, knowing full well that the most physically demanding part of the night is still to come.
