The four-voice Korg minilogue XD module is Korg’s latest polyphonic analog synthesizer that builds upon the success of the minilogue xd, Monologue, and Prologue synthesizers and harnesses the most sought after features of each, culminating in one of the most advanced instruments available. By combining multivoice, multitimbre, and Multi Engine technology, the minilogue xd module utilizes a best of feature set from each minilogue product with additional features including a digital multi-engine, digital effects, a feature-rich sequencer, and microtuning, which further expands the possibilities for sound design and performance.

In this latest addition, Korg implemented polychain support, allowing two minilogue xd series (keyboard or desktop module) units to connect for poly assignment settings. Specify one unit as the master and the other as the slave, and they will play as an eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer, supporting a variety of uses, such as a voice-expansion module for the minilogue xd, a sound module for a DAW-based production system, and more.

The synthesizer’s architecture uses two VCOs + multi-engine (VCO3), a 12 dB/octave filter, two envelopes, a VCA, and an LFO. The multi-engine is equipped with three sound generation devices including a noise generator, a variable phase modulation (VMP/FM) generator, and a user oscillator, which allows you to load your own oscillator programs including custom wavetables via a free editor/librarian. The two-pole, low-pass filter with enhanced sharpness adds drive with powerful distortion, as well as a key-track switch. Its sound covers almost every sonic possibility: fat basses, powerful leads, and the lush pads that you expect from a polyphonic synthesizer.

Additional features include four voice modes, a powerful arpeggiator, a 16-step polyphonic sequencer with step, real-time, and motion recording, and a 32-bit digital effects engine, which provides three simultaneous effects including modulation, reverb, and delay. The desktop module has no keyboard, but instead offers a keyboard mode, which allows you to use the 16 buttons to operate as a keyboard with more than an octave, providing a convenient way to check the sound. The assignable joystick provides control over different assignable parameter for each program for inspired performances, while the OLED oscilloscope provides visual feedback of parameter changes in real-time. The Korg Minilogue XD Desktop Module includes free software and ships with a power adapter.

Multi-Engine

  • The multi-engine is provided as VCO3, adding digital waveforms and FM via three different sound engines, which can be combined with the analog VCOs to expand Prologue’s sonic potential far beyond that of a traditional analog synthesizer
    • Noise Generator: Four types of noise generators create percussive sounds or sound effects. Experience how digital filtering can produce direct changes in the color of the noise
    • VPM Oscillator: The VPM (Variable Phase Modulation) / FM oscillator offers a metallic and sharp sound with complex overtones. With 16 types of oscillators and the Shape knob, you’ll have access to complex sound design possibilities
    • User Oscillator: Load oscillator programs of your own creation. Sixteen slots are provided, and one type of morphing wavetable oscillator is built-in as a preset

Voice Modes

  • Four Voice Modes
    • Poly: Operates as a poly synth with up to 4 voices. Turn the Voice Mode Depth knob to switch to Duo mode, in which the instrument operates with up to 4 voices
    • Unison: Operates as an all-unison mono synth. Turn Voice Mode Depth knob to deepen detune
    • Chord: Play chords using one to four voices
    • Arp/Latch:
      • Arp: Provides an arpeggiator with up to four voices that can also be used while the sequencer is running
      • Latch: Switches latch on or off

Effects

  • 32-bit floating point DSP processing
  • Add finishing touches to sound design platform
  • Three types of effects: modulation, reverb, delay
  • Can be used simultaneously
  • User effect slots allow you to load your own custom effect programs

Program Sort

  • The program sort function lets you instantly change the sorting order of the 500 programs
    • Eight program sort methods
      • Prog Num: Sort by program number
      • Category: Sort by program category
      • Alphabetical: Sort programs alphabetically

Arpeggiator

  • The powerful arpeggiator opens a world of limitless inspiration. It provides a four-octave range and six arpeggiator types. From phrases that could not be performed on a keyboard to sequence-like sound designs, the arpeggiator can play a versatile array of roles
    • Types:
      • Manual
      • Rise
      • Fall
      • Rise/fall
      • Random
      • Poly random
