Korg Intros Minilogue Analog Poly Synthesizer for $500, Watch Video Demo

We recently spotted that details of Korg's upcoming Minilogue synth had been leaked on the web. Now, before Korg have officially announced it, Sweetwater have released full details, pics and a video!

Sweetwater have released a full product page for the as yet unnanouced (by Korg) new Minlogue poly analog synthesizer. Here's some details, including a video below the fold, that will tell you all you need to know!

Korg Minilogue has a built-in tape-style delay effect and an OLED oscilloscope display - something we've never seen on a hardware synth.

 

"When it comes to traditional subtractive analog synthesis with modern sophistication, the Korg minilogue analog polyphonic synthesizer delivers. It starts with a pair of highly shapable VCOs, which you can shape with a switchable 2-/4-pole lowpass filter, and there's plenty of modulation to go around. At the same time, you can store up to 200 settings, and there are 100 killer presets onboard to fuel your creativity. There's also a built-in tape-style delay effect and an OLED oscilloscope display - something we've never seen on a hardware synth. And that's just the beginning. Between the minilogue's Voice Modes and onboard 16-step sequencer, you'll be amazed by the sounds you come up with."
