Trust reddit. If you want to remove those pesky small keys from the capable Korg Minilogue polyphonic analog synth and turn it into a desktop it's possible. In fact we covered this before and you may recall Haydn Hamilton's handy work in modding and creating a Korg Minilogue and a Korg Monologue desktop synth.
We feel the desktop variety look pretty damn sexy. But even better is the fact you can probably do this yourself for about $6 in materials and a couple of hours. At least that's what it took charlie_argument (as well as a couple of beers)!
When asked by others on reddit how he managed this feet he replied, "with the Minilogue, it's as simple as pulling the top plate off, unplugging the keybed and power headers, and removing the two sisterboards. After that, it's a lot of hacksaw work. The only difficult part is finding a way to anchor your new front plate, and making sure it doesn't look too janky when it's all put back together."
He continues with advice for another reddit user:
"It's pretty simple once you've got all the guts out. Only tips I can give would be cautionary advice:
Make sure you have the front panel material and fastening method decided on beforehand. I half-assed it because I didn't do much planning. Someone here suggested fixing L-brackets to the interior plastic casing for fasteners, and it convinced me to update my design.
I used a hacksaw to chop the front end off by hand. I would highly suggest finding a decent jigsaw or bandsaw to do this part.
The entire project took 2 hours and relatively little effort or stress."
