UPDATE: the Minilogue XD was indeed released and ships with a very impressive set of specs. Head over to the KORG website to read up on all the details.
KORG has been on a hot streak in recent times, with the Minilogue, Monologue, Prologue, not to mention the ubiquitous Volca series. Capitalising on the new wave of love for analog synthesis, the company has been able to leverage its unique heritage, while simultaneously refreshing its sound and workflow.
As 2018 closed out, images of the Minilogue XD emerged, which seems to combine the best features of the Minilogue and Prologue in one small format machine. This analog machine with a digital brain harnesses the best of both worlds. Can it get even better, while maintaining an extremely competitive price?
The Minilogue XD is set to combine Prologue technology with a Minilogue footprint. Are the rumours true though? All eyes will be pointed towards NAMM.
Aside from a few images, details are thin on the ground. Yet the synth appears to be an analog polysynth, possessing the Prologue’s digital multi-engine and a 16 step sequencer.
And, with the whole audio world gearing up for NAMM in a few weeks time, we’ll just have to stay tuned.
