The Korg Minilogue can clearly be seen on the desk with loads of other analog outboard gear. In [this Instagram post](https://www.instagram.com/p/BOQmdmHhEfz/?taken-by=tychomusic) posted by Tycho his Minilogue can be seen as well. In the comments section one user asks, "do you use the Minilogue in your music? I just want to hear some truly professional applications of it." Tycho replies: > "yeah it's all over epoch" "epoch" refers to Tycho's album Epoch, the fourth studio album he made, released on September 30, 2016 on Ghostly International. Another user says, "thoughts on the minilogue? Really wanting one" to which Tycho replies: > "love it. listen to any song on epoch to hear it used" Yet another user comments, "So I've seen you really praising the Minilogue, how do you feel about the clicking issue that people often bring up? I don't own it but I've been considering it for a while now." Tycho once again replies: > "yeah that was a big issue on a few tracks on epoch. i used [sonnox envolution](https://equipboard.com/items/sonnox-envolution) to fix that"more

Four-voice analog synth with sequencer and delay.
Korg’s minilogue is the first polyphonic analog synthesizer with presets in its price range. With its powerful yet simple signal flow and extensive feature set, minilogue is designed to inspire and captivate musicians and analog enthusiasts on all levels.
At its heart, the minilogue is a four-voice, fully programmable polyphonic analog synth with 200 editable presets (100 preloaded) and a powerful, flexible architecture for amazing versatility in sound creation and exploration. It features a 16-step polyphonic note and motion sequencer, arpeggiator, and a tape-style delay. With its powerful, yet easy to understand signal flow, minilogue is designed to inspire and captivate musicians and analog enthusiasts on all levels.
A new Voice Mode lets users choose how the four available voices are configured; from Polyphonic to Duophonic, Unison to one-note Chords, and more. In addition to offering up information on presets and editable parameters, the OLED display also features a real-time oscilloscope, providing functional, fun, and eye-catching visual feedback for the sound being played; a feature never before seen on a hardware synth.
The uniquely curved, sand-blasted aluminum panel, real pyinkado wood back panel, solid, chassis-mounted metal shaft potentiometers and rubber-coated knobs give the roadworthy minilogue a standout look and feel to complement its powerful and dynamic sound creation capabilities.
The minilogue is ideal for:
Musicians who already have a microKORG or similar mini keyboard synth, looking to renew or expand their synth arsenal
Non-synth players – because they’re easy to use, easy to play, and easy to own
Any analog enthusiast
We use it a lot! Sounds very nice and this beast is very versatile, bass, leads, arpeggios, pad and everything in between. Lovely machine. The sequencer is useful too.
This synth seems to do it all. Rich textured multiband, fat monosynths, delicate sounds with nuanced fx - plus it's got a sequencer built in. Loads of fun, and always more to do/learn with this thing. Oh, and it's beautiful.
I personally think KOrg knocked it out of the park with this one. With its various modes (Mono, poly, duo, chord, delay etc etc; and with a sequencer which is very musically attuned, it's an amazing peice of gear that I think everyone should have. Basslines, pads, leads, you name it, and the minilogue will help you make it!
I got this for Christmas a year ago and it has served me very well during that time period. If you are into Lo-Fi music, synthwave, or any new-age type of music this synth is for you. Don't be like me and never use it lol. I really should use it more. The MIDI capabilities are a little tweaked, but it is good enough.
I absolutely love this instrument. Don't expect a massive analog sound like from Moogs, but it is very handy and has its own beauty. The step sequencer and the different instrument modes are really useful. Some people noticed clicks at attack of the envelopes and think it is wrong compared to other analog gear, but I think this can be a useful feature in sound design. Also the delay a little bit noisy at higher feedback, but can be bypassed. The oscilloscope display very good even to teach or learn subtractive synthesis.
Oh, I love this thing. The polished gray finish is beautiful, the sounds in this thing are killer... the hands on of a hardware synth is truly like nothing else you will ever experience.
I have had this one for over a year and while it is great to play and has many interesting features the sound never really knocked me out but it is an inexpensive way to get a polyphonic analog into your set-up. I really should use it more.
I use it when I play chords or leads with a simple saw wave that just sounds awesome! It has too many features I didn't manage to use but its super fun and easy to play on. Would appreciate a bigger keyboard though. And not that reliable, but I'm not a careful user eather xexe
Its capabilities are a bit limited compared to some of the other beast synthesizers out there (that are much more expensive), but for its price it's an absolute killer synth!
really great sound quality from this synth and the most user friendly interface out there. Using the synth is great fun in general and the 4 voices rather than 1 seem like a bonus. It's a bit pricey for what it is but the build quality is great across most of the synth and the sound quality is very boutique to me unlike most analog synth gear in the sub 600$ price range which sound rather...."gamey" as in not quite as precise and musically dialed in as the minilogue and better ananlog synth gear sounds
What can I say, the Korg Minilogue is a very nice analog sound play/experiment machine. Not much choice around for the limited budget. Love how the sequencer can be part of the whole sound shaping process.
The filtered delay on this unit.. very nice but... noisy... Also the midi implementation has some quirks but I hope they will iron it out.
Used in ArmerElector as rhythm synth In Fast Oil as lead In Claymore as main lead In Grey Masses as lead In Colloid Science as lead In 4th Dimension in Music as noise In Magazin Electronica as bass
Even though the sound of the korg minilogue has been described as quite tame it has a distinct feel to it. The controls and interface are great with quite a lot of modulation options and good selection of wave shapes. Definitely recommended for any beginner in subtractive synthesis that wants to have an analog poly on a budget.
Some people criticize the Minilogue for not having enough dirt and grime and bottom end. EVERY synth on the market has that. What it does have is a gorgeous sound, cool modulation, unique features and ease of use. If I want to quickly dial in a sound I can do it in 5 minutes or less.
For a synth with only two oscillators and minimal effects and controls, this thing is extremely powerful. Lots of really nice default patches, and making custom patches are extremely easy to develop. There are a few weird things like the phase of a muted oscillator affecting the phase of the unmuted oscillator, but that could totally be a 'me' issue instead of an issue with the hardware. :p I'll be using this synth heavily for the next couple of albums for sure.
I like the simplicity of this synth, but I think that for $600 you could invest in starting your modular rig. I know that its a different beast, but you could get something better for $600 its all.
