It was a pleasure to have Nick from Korg USA in the Sam Ash Studio to give as some expert insight into the Korg Minilogue polyphonic analog synthesizer. He shows us just how versatile and functional this synth can be and how it can help you create fantastic well produced sounds quickly and efficiently. From the oscilloscope showing us realtime visuals of our multiple waveforms to the many effects and filters, there appears to be limitless options to fuel your creative potential. For the bass lover in all of us, Nick shows us what unison mode can do to really fatten up our tone. There are two envelopes that let you control the amp and filter independently, a noise oscillator that gives you options for various rhythmic timbres, delay modes, an arpeggiator, and so much more. Whether you’re new to the world of synthesizers or a seasoned veteran, the Korg Minilogue will be a welcome addition to any musician’s gear collection.
