Korg Minilogue - "Stranger Things" & More
Published on Jul 20, 2016 Jae Ryan
1. Korg Minilogue - "Stranger Things"
"I was a little slow obtaining a Minilogue since I live in Canada. I happened to get mine last weekend while binge watching Stranger Things on Netflix. Although this is not what the synth is known for (based on what I've seen), I figured I would take a shot at making something that wouldn't be out of place on a scene in the show. This whole sequence is just one track of the Minilogues audio out. No overdubs. No second synth. No layers, just 1 pure audio track of Minilogue madness. As usual I recorded this to the UAD Studer tape plug in and added some delay and Lexicon 224 reverb for width and depth.
I also own the Korg Arp Odyssey and MS-20 Mini and I must say that at some points this synth can sound very similar to those, even in how difficult it can be to find the sweet spot. When you open this thing up though, it has a sound that's all its own. Personally i'm not a huge fan of poly synths but ANY analog at this price is worth owning. The Minilogue has a very unique character, love it or hate it, you'll be hard pressed to find the sound anywhere else."
