Who likes analog synths? Who likes exciting new musical instruments? If you answered “yes” to both those questions, take a look at Korg’s new synthesizer, the Minilogue:
What I love about this new breed of analog synths is that you get all the fun and possibilities of analog synthesis, along with all benefits of modern technology, such as being able to store sounds in the sound bank and being able to view the waveform on the little screen.
It looks like you can quickly get some really cool sounds out of this synth, even if you don’t know what you’re doing. You can just dive straight in and start playing around with the knobs.
I can imagine this being a great live performance synth, especially when using the arpeggiator. You can play a chord with one hand while the arpeggiator runs, and then use the other hand to play around with the knobs, such as the filter cutoff and resonance. It also has a sequencer, which can even record your actions when turning the knobs.
I also like how it has both polyphonic and monophonic modes, which both have their uses in different musical scenarios. For example, if you are doing fast lead lines, the monophonic mode prevents your notes from running into each other.
What do you think of this synth? Are you excited? Why not let me know in the comments below.
All the best,
