Korg Minilogue XD Ambient Synthwave

Synthesist PARKER shared this ambient synthwave live performance on the Korg Minilogue XD.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“A performance taken from the upcoming album ‘The Faraway Point’…

A lofi, single synth, ambient song in one take.

This is an improvised single synth live performance on a Korg Minilogue XD.

All sounds Korg Minilogue XD.”

  1. Go for the Prologue. For less than $400 more than the Minilogue XD, you can get the Prologue 8-voice with more features (8 voices vs the 4 voices of the Minilogue XD, full size keys, etc).

  2. Hi TimS, you’re undoubtedly a better shopper than me but I’m seeing Minilogue xd at 550 and the Prologue 8 at 1250 (and curiously out of stock a lot of places too), €700 difference. But even if it was ‘only’ a €400 difference, that can be a big difference for a lot of people. And you won’t be surprised by the idea that a lot of synth enthusiasts are already pushing the limits of their disposable income.

    1. I am going by Sweetwater prices:

      Korg Minilogue XD: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MinilogueXD–korg-minilogue-xd-4-voice-analog-synthesizer

      Korg Prologue 8-Voice: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Prologue08–korg-prologue-49-key-8-voice-analog-synthesizer

      Yes, $370 more is a good chunk of change; however, IMHO, it’s worth saving the extra money and buying the Prologue. I was recently at the Sweetwater Music Store in Fort Wayne Indiana. Their keyboard room is synth heaven. I spent hours there. Along with trying out dozens of other synths, I spent a good deal of time playing the Minilogue XD and Prologue 8-Voice. IMHO the Korg Prologue is better in every way, not least of which are 8 voices instead of 4 and full-size keys, and it is worth saving $370 more to obtain.
