minilogue's newly developed analogue synthesizer circuit delivers polyphony and full programmability at a great price - exactly what today's musician needs. With the minilogue, you can get your hands on the powerful sound that's only possible with real analogue circuitry, and find inspiration with features including a polyphonic step and motion sequencer, on board tape-style delay, multiple sound shaping and filter options, and an oscilloscope display. All of these seamlessly integrated features make minilogue as fun and easy to use as it is powerful. It's the next-generation analogue synthesizer for musicians of all types.
True Analogue Sound
The synth circuits for minilogue are all new ground up designs, delivering a synthesizer experience like no other. Unprecedented in this class, it's a four-voice polyphonic true-analogue synth with an interface that's designed for accessibility. Whether you're performing live or producing in the studio, the minilogue is the fastest way for the user to explore and implement real analogue synthesis in any situation.
The structure consists of 2VCO, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. The minilogue's unique wave shape capability lets you fine tune the oscillators' harmonics, creating the most divine sounds and compositions. The minilogue is also equipped with a variety of powerful types of modulation including cross modulation, oscillator sync, and ring modulator, as well as a delay with a high-pass filter. Powerful sound creation and rich variety are the true hallmarks of an analogue synthesizer.
Polyphony and Presets – Perfect
minilogue goes beyond analogue synths in its price range by adding 200 preset locations. Select a program for instant access to great sounds - ranging from thick basses to deep pads to brilliant polyphonic leads and atmospheric sounds. No need to have deep synthesis knowledge: just choose a sound and tweak - a workflow that is very familiar with musicians today. For those who want to dive deeper into the heart and soul of minilogue's engine, the minilogue hold 200 programs with 100 editable factory programs included, and 100 locations serving as blank canvases on which to create your next analogue masterpiece. Each preset can also hold a step sequence and delay settings along with the sounds you create.
Selectable voice modes let you freely configure the four voices for performance. The voices can be set to four note polyphony for chords or layered for thick basses and leads. Other modes cover a range of sounds from octave shifted bass explosions to delicately staggered layered triggering.
Eight Voice Modes
- POLY ... operates as a four-voice polyphonic synthesizer
- DUO ... operates as a unison two-voice polyphonic synthesizer
- UNISON ... operates as an all-unison mono synthesizer
- MONO ... operates as a mono synth with sub-oscillator
- CHORD ... produces chords
- DELAY ... voices 2--4 sound consecutively at a delay following voice 1
- ARP ... an arpeggiator operates with up to four voices
- SIDE CHAIN ... when a note sounds, the volume of the preceding voice is lowered
Get creative with the intuitive 16-step sequencer with motion sequence recording capabilities, and make your sound truly come to life. The minilogue provides real-time recording with overdubbing, and step recording that lets you record simply by consecutively specifying notes, giving you a great way to create phrases and performances.
Oscilloscope Visualises The Sound
The OLED display will show the waveform as you sculpt your sound. Visual feedback is both educational and entertaining, and represents a first on a hardware synthesizer.
The uniquely curved, sand-blasted 2mm aluminium front panel, metal shaft potentiometers, 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.
Sync With Groove Machines
In addition to the standard MIDI connectors, the minilogue provides a sync connector that can be easily connected to Korg's groove machines. Connect this to a volca series unit, an electribe, or the SQ-1, and experience a session with synchronised sequencer playback.

|Great synth. Great value. So nice to get a poly analogue synth for such a price.|
|Great little synth capable of so much when you dive in to making your own sounds. Very hands on and sounds the part too. Well worth every penny, hopefully an 8 voice stereo version comes out in the future too :)|
|A beautiful looking, and well built synth at a bargain price. Reminds me of my old Roland SH101 (true analogue, grey front panel, built in sequencer) but it's 4 note polyphonic, made of aluminium and wood and the sequencer will also record movements of the front panel controls.

Reminds me of my old Roland SH101 (true analogue, grey front panel, built in sequencer) but it's 4 note polyphonic, made of aluminium and wood and the sequencer will also record movements of the front panel controls. The sound is great and it's very hands-on and tweakable. The only downside is the mad, non MIDI standard controller assignment, try using a sustain pedal from your master keyboard and you'll see what I mean! If Korg correct this in a future software update they will have created the best sub £500 synch ever. As it stands it represents an absolute bargain, get your order in now before the queue gets even longer!!|
