The Korg Prologue is unique in that it's a flagship analogue synth with an open-source digital oscillator and effects section available for developers to add their own sounds. The first 3rd party oscillators have been release by DirtBoxSynth and sound very interesting!
The new models are the latest versions of the world’s best-selling keyboard controllers, with velocity-sensitive keys and comprehensive controls that expand the range of playable notes, expressive capabilities, and enhance the player’s recording workflow.
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!
Over the last few years Nord have become the name to go to when professionals keys players want an incredible sounding and reliable stage instrument, so it is very exciting to see their new line - The Nord Electro 6.
