Totally. The compact form factor is much more appealing. Having messed about with 4 x Plaits in VCV Rack I can confirm that many of Plaits algorithms sound excellent with polyphonic play.
Yes, that would be interesting.
I know it’s exceptionally unlikely to ever happen, but I still have a tiny sliver of hope we’ll one day see a digital keyboard synth designed by @pichenettes…
By myself as Mutable Instruments… unlikely… The mechanical aspect and the sheer size of the thing is daunting.
If a large and sane synth company (I have my ideas on that) wants to host me for such a project, why not
Korg? Dave Smith? Who should I petition on twitter?
Yay the Minilogue XD is true!
4 voices of:
- 2 VCOs
- 1 Multi Engine OSC
- 1VCF based on Prologue.
- 2 Envelopes
- 1 LFO.
It also got the programmable effect section with three efffects that can be used simultaneously. Also new compared to the previous Minilogue: Microtuning, sequencer with 16 step buttons, stereo output, two CV inputs, 500 instead of 200 preset locations.
Coming in the next few months.
They also announced a DSP based drum machine volca. “Based on a simple trigger waveform, wave folder and overdrive are used to add overtones and distortion, and then a waveguide resonator effect brings the sound to life”
And the volca modular based on west coast synthesis:
I have to say, Korg is one of the few bigger companies that is still innovative
Not a huge fan of the volca series, but I have to admit Korg is trying out some interesting concepts here. Between all the endless cloning, this is very refreshing.
so, has anyone installed the plaits osc package on their prologue? are there any demos available online? i can’t seem to find any…
finally, a demo of the plaits osc for prologue:
