Update3: image of the back added below.

I have to say, personally I find the Minilogue to be a pretty sharp looking little synth. A bit retro and a bit modern. Not a fan of mini keys, but three octaves in a compact size is a fair trade off. Hoping it will feature velocity and aftertouch for use as a mini iPad controller. I'm guessing that would likely be a stretch as this is meant to be a stand-alone analogue synth. I do wish manufacturers would make 5 voices the default though.

Update4: and the official announcement from KORG is live.


  1. Looking cool. Will have to check out at NAMM!

  2. Gold again, huh? Whatever - this is the synth I never would've dare dream of! Even if it's nothing more than a Volca sound engine with mini keys, I'm pouncing on it despite whatever pro-editions they may have waiting for 2017 !!

  3. Unfortunate for the band...

  4. It's not gold, it's actually silver. The lighting is just off on the first few pics.
