Synthesizer with real analog sound and digital multi engine.
The minilogue xd adds the digital multi-engine, effects, enhanced sequencer and micro tuning features to those who know the excitement that only real analog sound can give and the joy of operating electronic musical instruments. It provides the joy of making sounds and the possibility of performance.

■ An analog synthesizer circuit that destroys the common sense of the class.
Analog synthesis with 4-voice polyphonic. The minilogue xd has further brushed up the analog synthesizer circuit of the minilogue, which had a great impact on the real analog sound.
The composition is 2VCO + MULTI ENGINE, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, 1LFO. In addition to the characteristic circuits common to the series, such as the wave shape that forms the overtone of the oscillator and the sync/ring switch, cross modulation, a sharp 2-pole low-pass filter, and a drive that adds thickness to the sound Equipped with a switch. All parameters are tuned up in detail based on series products. Its sound covers all the variations from the warm pad unique to analog to the fat bass and good lead.
Of course you can save your own program in the main body. You can start with 200 presets and store a total of 500 programs.
■ Equipped with digital multi-engine.
In addition to the two analog VCOs, the multi-engine mounted as the third oscillator provides the appeal of digital sound. This engine is equipped with three different sound source types: noise, VPM, and user slot, and by utilizing the characteristics of the sound that is different from analog, it is possible to create a hybrid sound by making it sound together with the analog engine. It expands to infinity.
Four types of noise generators essential for percussive tones and SE sounds. You can enjoy the direct change of noise color by the digital filter.
VPM (Variable Phase Modulation)/FM oscillator with 2 operators. Metallic and sharp sounds, including complex overtones, are something you never get in analog. The 16 types of oscillators and the SHAPE knob control intuitively guide you in creating complex sounds.
A user oscillator that allows you to load your own or Internet-based oscillator programs. It has 16 slots and has one type of morphing wavetable oscillator as a preset.
■ High-quality digital effects.
High quality digital effects with 32bit float processing further enhance the sound of minilogue xd. You can use three types of modulation effects, reverb, and delay simultaneously, and you can choose from a wide variety of choruses, ensembles, warm tape delays, and various reverbs. You can also load your own effect programs into the user effect slots.
■ User customization that brings out unlimited possibilities.
minilogue xd offers the possibility of customization in an open environment. 16 user oscillator slots and 16 user effect slots are prepared in the main body for customization. Oscillators and effect programs made with SDK (Software Development Kit) can be loaded into the main unit via the dedicated librarian software.
What kind of sound will be produced by the fusion of the expanded digital oscillator and analog synthesis? Creating original programs, sharing code, and user community. Try the sample code provided by Korg first.
■ A polyphonic step sequencer operated by 16 buttons.
The 16-step step sequencer supports real-time REC and step REC. Since you can directly select 16 step buttons, you can perform quick edits and improvisational performances such as step sound replacement and mute. Furthermore, the motion sequence that memorizes up to four knob movements and changes the sound over time makes it possible not only to continuously change the value, but also to intermittently store the value at each step. You can create different sounds for each step and arrange them, so you can expand the usage depending on your ideas, such as creating a drum pattern or SE from a single program.
■ Built-in interface.
Controls pitch bend, modulation depth, etc. You can also assign any parameter vertically.
