We love our Minilogue so much we ended up getting 2 for our studios and gave away a Monolog to one of our customers. Nice chaps at Korg lab thought they can do better and announced the XD version at Namm2019. Not going to lie, We are very exited! They kept the black colour which they used in a recent Minilogue limited release but changed the layout. It’s more like the Prologue unit now. The four-voice synth features the same analog oscillators as its predecessor, but adds a third digital oscillator inspired by the Prologue with three types of sound generator (noise, VPM and changeable user slot) for making hybrid tones. Programmable oscilator has tones of potential. Wish those keys were slightly bigger…
