    Analog synthesizer circuit that shatters expectations for its class

    Four-voice polyphonic analog synthesis. The analog synthesizer circuit of the minilogue, whose genuine analog sound had a huge impact on the synth world, has been further developed for the minilogue xd.

    Voice structure of minilogue xd is 2VCO + MULTI ENGINE, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. In addition to the distinctive circuits found in the series, such as wave shaping to shape the overtones of the oscillator and a sync/ring switch, there's also cross modulation, a sharp two-pole filter, and a drive switch that adds thickness and drives signal into minilogue xd’s filter. Every parameter has been tuned in detail based on what musicians want out of their synth. The sounds range from the warm pads typical of analog to fat basses and crisp lead sounds, covering every situation.

    Equipped with a digital multi-engine

    The multi-engine in the minilogue xd introduces digital sound options with three types of sound generators (noise, VPM, and user slots), expanding sound design possibilities beyond analog. It offers four types of noise for percussive and effects, a VPM/FM oscillator for sharp, metallic tones, and 16 user slots for custom oscillators, broadening the potential for hybrid sound design.

    Polyphonic step sequencer controlled by 16 buttons

    The step sequencer provides 16 steps, and supports both realtime recording and step recording. You can use the 16 step buttons to select a step directly, allowing quick editing to replace the pitch of a step or to mute it, or even improvisatory performances. Motion sequence lets you record the movements of up to four knobs, adding time-varying change to the sound, and you can record not only smooth changes in value but also values that change precisely at each step. You can use this to design the sound differently at each step; for example, you might create a drum pattern or sound effect from just a single program. This allows countless ideas to be unleashed.

    A thoughtfully designed interface

    The minilogue xd features a joystick for pitch bend and modulation control, with the option to assign parameters to the up/down axis. It offers four voice modes: POLY for four-voice polyphony, UNISON for monophonic operation, CHORD for chord production, and ARP/LATCH for arpeggiation and latch control. Each mode can be enhanced with the voice mode depth knob, allowing for different effects. The micro tuning function enables individual key pitch adjustments with 23 preset tunings and six user scales/octaves. The expanded display functions as an oscilloscope to visualize sound waveforms and offers motion view for monitoring motion sequences, providing valuable real-time visual feedback.

    An evolved next-generation analog synthesizer with huge potential for sound design and performance. 

    We wanted to deliver a next-generation analog synthesizer for a new generation of musicians new to analog synthesis. That dream was realized in the development of the minilogue, which instantly made the analog synthesizer approachable. In addition to emphasizing the same real analog sound and joy of controlling an electronic musical instrument offered by the original minilogue, the minilogue xd newly adds a digital multi-engine, effects, a powered-up sequencer, and micro tuning functionality, further expanding the possibilities for sound design and performance potential. minilogue xd is a fitting successor for the original groundbreaking minilogue.
