Prologue is a polyphonic analogue synthesizer equipped with a full-sized keyboard. With analogue circuits that are descended directly from the earlier models of the series, together with a newly developed digital multi engine and gorgeous DSP-based effects, Prologue expands the variety of sounds and the possibilities for user customisation.
The lineup is comprised of two models that cover musicians’ needs for not only stage use, but also studio, home, or touring use: 16-voice 61- key Prologue-16, and the eight-voice 49-key Prologue-8. These instruments are capable of sounds that go beyond existing analogue synthesizers.
16/8-voice analogue sound
The prologue is a polyphonic analogue synthesizer with eight or 16 multitimbral voices. Korg’s analogue synthesizer development in recent years has culminated in the Prologue, which was designed using 11,000 discrete electronic components. Although the Prologue is a flagship instrument, it still retains the inviting feel and accessibility of its predecessors. It features a pure analogue path, impeccable sound quality, stunning presence, and the same intuitive interface as the Minilogue and Monologue, granting you intuitive access to a vast world of analogue synthesis.
Newly developed multi-engine
The newly developed multi engine is provided as VCO3, adding digital waveforms and FM. This multi engine, which is equipped with three different sound engines, can be combined with the analogue VCOs to expand Prologue’s sonic potential far beyond that of a traditional analogue synthesizer.
Open source means that the Prologue’s development is ongoing. It provides 16 user oscillator slots and 16 user effect slots, and you can use the dedicated librarian software (expected to be available for downloading sometime this year) to create your very own oscillators and effect programs, and load them into Prologue.
