A 49-key, polyphonic analog polyphonic synthesizer and the 61-key, 16-channel version, which can be described as a "hybrid" synth by integrating a digital motor into the center of its fully analog circuit.

Close cousin of KORG's already famous Minilogue and Monologue, the prologue is a complete and fully programmable polyphonic analog synthesizer. Hormone boosted version, it is distinguished from these predecessors by a keyboard with large keys, a polyphony of 8 or 16 channels (depending on the model) and a new engine
digital sound (the multi-engine) greatly expanding the sound and customization possibilities. As you will understand, the prologue range includes two models: the 8-channel version of 49 keys and the 16-channel version of 61 keys. Let's find out more in detail what lies beneath this beast ...

Analog power

The prologue takes again the powerful analogical circuits which made the strength of its predecessors (Minilogue and Monologue), and thus proposes an incomparable quality of sound as well as an astonishing presence. More than 11000 electronic components have been used for its manufacture! The prologue is composed of 2VCO, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA and 1LFO. It also features the famous built-in oscillator allowing you to create unique waveforms to refine your harmonies and create breathtaking sounds. Add to that a bipolar low-pass filter and powerful distortion and you have a powerful analog palette to create deep bass, powerful leads, and the beautiful pads that are expected of a polyphonic synthesizer. Also note that the prologue is bi-timbral, and allows you to play two different programs simultaneously.

Despite its analog power, the prologue retains its ease of use and intuitive interface worthy of the latest KORG synthesizers. You will find on the panel the easy selection of channel modes (POLY, MONO, UNISSON, CHORD ...), the powerful arpeggiator, or the simplified selection (and sortable) of the 500 programs.

The freedom of digital

The ingenuity of the prologue goes beyond its analog design. Indeed, by adding to the original 2 VCOs a third MULTI ENGINE digital oscillator, KORG is exploring new experimental sites. This new engine, adding digital and FM waveforms, can be combined with analog VCOs to extend the sound potential of the prologue far beyond that of a traditional analog synthesizer. The noise generator, the VPM oscillator and the high-quality digital effects (modulation and delay / reverb) bring you complex metallic sounds and harmonics that you never thought possible.

Another novelty, and not least, this new engine MULTI ENGINE offers a USER mode that allows you to load oscillator programs of your own creation (and yes!) You can develop on the dedicated software (available in early spring 2018 ). There are sixteen slots for this parameter.

Thanks pianolaio emo

Il prezzo lo diranno al Namm, no? Questi sono "Korgleaks" non ancora l'annuncio ufficiale ma é questione di poco emo

Mi piacciono

18-01-18 08.41

prezzi già rilasciati da alcuni negozi americani, la versione 8 voci costerà 1499 dollari e la versione 16 voci 1999 dollari, praticamente vanno a competere pari pari ai dave smith rev2-8 e rev2-16 che in € costano rispettivamente 1749€ e 2299€.

Entrambe le versioni non hanno aftertouch e hanno una sola LFO.
diciamo che chi sperava in una versione 61 del minilogue con poca roba extra ma con un ricarico di 200€ o comunque prezzo finale sotto i 999€ resterà parecchio deluso.. a quei prezzi i due rev2 sono più bilanciati come prezzo/specifiche a parer mio.

Non so se suona "cugino" del minilogue lo lascio al negozio... Ma anche se suona meglio... Chi ce li ha 2000 euri?

Ob6 tutta la vita se proprio devo spendere Ob6 e Pro6 suonano infinitamente meglio per me... Anche i 2 Rev li lascio al negozio... Lascio tutto al negozio... Sperando che vendano qualcosa poracci... emoemoemo

già, thanks a Pianolaio per l'anteprima!
Sono belli, mi piace il diverso formato a seconda della polifonia, e comunque sposo sempre l'idea dei synth a 5 ottave!
Speriamo che non ci abbiano montato la keybed del King Korg.

The big surprise: "The prologue offers an SDK (Software Development Kit) that allows developers to program, customize and extend the capabilities of the multi-engine and digital effects and is expected to be available for download in the spring of 2018. The prologue provides 16 user oscillator slots and 16 user effect slots, and users can use the prologue Librarian software (also expected to be available for download in the spring of 2018) to load into their prologue new oscillators and effect programs created by developers with the prologue SDK (Software Development Kit)."

Certo che visto dentro sembra una roba seria!

Meglio Diva... Ma stiamo parlando di real analog...

Io sarò fissato ma niente suona meglio di pro6 ob6 attualmente come poly analog... Manco il Modal e Omega 8 che costano 4000 euro... O 6000 bho...

Aggiungo un paio di novità minori di casa KORG, forse non è necessario un post dedicato:

ARP Odyssey FSQ
