Product Description

The Minilogue XD is a next-generation polyphonic analog synthesizer that has evolved in design and performance for today's musicians. Korg has realized a dream in the development of the minilogue xd which features a customizable open environment.

In addition to emphasizing the same real analog sound and joy of controlling an electronic musical instrument offered by the original minilogue, the minilogue xd newly adds a digital multi-engine, effects, a powered-up sequencer, and micro tuning functionality, further expanding the possibilities for sound design and performance potential.

minilogue xd is a fitting successor for the original groundbreaking minilogue.

Analog synthesizer circuit that shatters expectations for its class Four-voice polyphonic analog synthesis. The analog synthesizer circuit of the minilogue, whose genuine analog sound had a huge impact on the synth world, has been further developed for the minilogue xd.

Voice structure of minilogue xd is 2VCO + MULTI ENGINE, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. In addition to the distinctive circuits found in the series, such as wave shaping to shape the overtones of the oscillator and a sync/ring switch, there's also cross modulation, a sharp two-pole filter, and a drive switch that adds thickness and drives signal into minilogue xd’s filter. Every parameter has been tuned in detail based on what musicians want out of their synth. The sounds range from the warm pads typical of analog to fat basses and crisp lead sounds, covering every situation.

Of course, programs that you create can also be saved in the unit. Out of the box, minilogue xd comes loaded with 200 presets, and a total of 500 programs can be saved.

Equipped with a digital multi-engine
The additional sound design possibilities of digital sound are delivered by the multi-engine that's provided as a third oscillator in addition to the two analog VCOs. This engine, which is equipped with three different types of sound generator (noise, VPM, and user slot) lets you take advantage of a sonic character that's different than analog, and use it at the same time as the analog engine, infinitely expanding the potential of hybrid sound design.

Noise generator
The noise generator provides four types of noise that are indispensable for percussive sounds or for sound effects. You can use the digital filter to directly change the color of the noise.

VPM oscillator
minilogue xd’s multi-engine features a VPM (Variable Phase Modulation)/FM oscillator with a two-operator structure. It can produce sharp, metallic sounds with complex overtones beyond the possibilities offered by analog systems. With 16 types of oscillator and a SHAPE knob control, you'll be able to create complex sounds intuitively.

User oscillators
User oscillators allow you to load your own oscillator programs that you created or obtained via the internet. There are 16 user slots, as well as one type of morphing wavetable oscillator provided as a preset.

High-quality digital effects
minilogue xd’s high-quality digital effects use 32-bit floating point DSP processing, adding a finishing touch to its deep sound design platform. The three types (modulation effects, reverb, and delay) can be used simultaneously, letting you choose from a wide range of variations including chorus, ensemble, warm tape delay, and a diverse variety of reverb. The user effect slots allow you to load your own effect programs that you've created.

User customization brings out infinite potential
The minilogue xd features a customizable open environment. The unit comes with 16 user oscillator slots and 16 user effect slots that you can customize. Oscillators and user programs that you've created with the SDK (Software Development Kit) can be loaded into the minilogue xd via the dedicated librarian software.

What sounds might arise from the fusion of the expanded digital oscillators with analog synthesis? Create original programs, share code, and participate in the user community. You can start with sample code provided by Korg.

Polyphonic step sequencer controlled by 16 buttons
The step sequencer provides 16 steps, and supports both realtime recording and step recording. You can use the 16 step buttons to select a step directly, allowing quick editing to replace the pitch of a step or to mute it, or even improvisatory performances. Motion sequence lets you record the movements of up to four knobs, adding time-varying change to the sound, and you can record not only smooth changes in value but also values that change precisely at each step. You can use this to design the sound differently at each step; for example, you might create a drum pattern or sound effect from just a single program. This allows countless ideas to be unleashed.

A thoughtfully designed interface

Controls pitch bend and modulation depth, etc. A desired parameter can also be assigned to the up/down axis.

Voice mode
The four voice modes were selected for the minilogue xd.

POLY: The minilogue xd operates as a four-voice polyphonic synth.
UNISON: The unit operates as a monophonic synth, with the four voices working in unison.
CHORD: Chords are produced using one to four voices.
ARP / LATCH: (ARP) Provides an arpeggiator with up to four voices that can also be used while the sequencer is running / (LATCH) Switches latch on or off.

A voice mode depth knob is also provided, which applies a corresponding effect for each mode.

POLY: Turning the knob toward the right switches to DUO mode and deepens the detune.
UNISON: Turning the knob toward the right deepens the detune.
CHORD: Selects mono or chord type.
ARP / LATCH: (ARP) Selects the arpeggiator type.

Micro tuning
The minilogue xd is equipped with the micro tuning function featured on the monologue, allowing you to individually adjust the pitch of each key. Built in are 23 preset tunings that include some created by Aphex Twin and Dorian Concept, and users can also create and store six user scales and six user octaves. Start by trying out the preset tunings of famous musicians, and then advance to creating your own original tunings.

Oscilloscope and motion view display
The organic EL display is now larger, and also provides oscilloscope functionality for you to view sound as the electrical signal's waveform. This makes parameter changes visible in real time, giving you visual feedback that helps you understand how the synthesizer works. The display can also show motion view for visualizing the movement of a stored motion sequence.

A full complement of input and output jacks

Output is now stereo
A stereo effect unit is provided at the final stage, and the output jacks are now also stereo. Spatial-type effects such as delay, reverb, and chorus will add an even more convincing touch to your thick analog synth sounds and sparkling digital synth sounds.

Damper pedal jack
A damper jack has been added in response to requests from artists and users.

Two CV IN jacks
Two CV IN jacks are provided, with voltage levels of -5V–+5V. In addition to CV/Gate, these can also input modulation signals, allowing you to use external devices to control parameters in the same way as moving the joystick up or down.

Awesome sound, Beginner Friendly

Product Review

This is my first synth purchase after tryin a few out. I have to admit, I love it! The sound is amazing and the preloaded patches are great to hit the ground running. That said, the design of the synth makes creating your own sounds intuitive and is helping me learn the basics of synth quickly. Super satisfied with this instrument.

A whole lotta fun.

Product Review

Impressive!. The best of the 3 "logue series" slammed together with improved effects and voice expandability. Absolutely in love with the motion sequencer. The XD is very light weight and easy to move around and appears to have a good build quality to it. The XD sits in front of a Eurorack well with it's sync in/out and two CV inputs for modulation expansion. XD seems to contain a large pallet of sounds from percussion to ambient pads to acid lines to FM and X Modulation.. It's a keeper....

Fantastic Synth

Product Review

We’ve been playing this a lot in the studio since getting it... the Minilogue is such a fun little synth to easily navigate and get some fantastically BIG sounds out of it. It sits right next to some big heavy hitters here and definitely holds its own. I find it’s kind of a current Korg “best of” in a miniature form factor. The arpeggiator is just malleable, expressive and really the reason I got the keyboard version vs. the desktop... it makes getting to all the fantastic sounds and features so much more immediate. The YouTube videos really do the loaded sound set justice and the immediacy of tweaking those sounds in to your own for storage (plenty of open storage for this) is very quick, easy and so intuitive. The onboard sound effects is next level stuff for a synth... not endless, but will get you 95% of the way there every time. I don’t find the 4 note polyphony a limitation at all for big pads and certainly not for the arpeggiator. I love this synth... this would have been science fiction back in 1983 (!) when I started collecting synthesizers. AMS as always has been a great company to buy from.

Absolute joy

Product Review

This is my first Korg. I own several Moogs, a Doepfer modular system and all the well known soft synths. The Minilogue XD feels fresh and exciting. I look forward to sitting down in front of it and exploring ideas. Heck of a deal for such a fun and great sounding poly synth.

Greatest 4 voice synth on the market

Product Review

It may just be my opinion, but I think this is the greatest synth with 4 voices that’s available. The sequencer, multiple oscillators, multi-drive engine and the effects section, give this synth an edge over others. I say this because the types of sound that are able to be created on this thing are by definition; unimaginable. These tools give the artist many directions to go and then many more directions to go from there. For instance I play keys to mix tracks, then use mixer effects because I use decks and a mixer on the sounds I create but someone that doesn’t want to use decks can use the same DJ mixer effects on this module; to suit their genre if it doesn’t want or need any DJ gear or mixer skills.

This synth is priceless !

Product Review

I was iffy if this would be a significant upgrade from the first minilogue; fortunately , it is most certainly an upgrade. The third oscillator makes for extra lushness. And this synth is 100% lush high grade sounding, and intuitive. Everyone who plays my minilogue wants to buy one after playing. : ) Happy customer
