The Korg Minilogue is a two VCO per-voice, four-voice, polyphonic analog synthesizer from Korg,[4][5] designed by Korg engineer and synthesizer designer Tatsuya Takahashi.[6] It was announced just prior to NAMM 2016,[7] and is priced new at $499.99 in the United States,[5] ¥55,000 in Japan[6] and £449 in the United Kingdom and Europe.[8] Its official release was preceded by leaks which caused media speculation.[9]

Voice modes[edit]

The Minilogue features eight distinct 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-oscillators
  • 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[10]
