Nutzloser StepSequencer?
Oliver Lohse, 06.04.2021
Die Desktopversion des Minilogue XD ist der exakte Klon der Version mit Keyboard.

Sound:
Die bereits installierten Sound-Ptaches sind wirklich extrem gut und die Sequenzen sind wirklich out of the Box vorzeigbar. Am hinteren Ende der Presets befinden sich noch einige vorgefertigte Bass, Drum und Stilrichtungen zum persönlichen füllen mit eigenen Ideen.

Stepsequencer:
Der Stepsequenzer ist in der aktuellen Firmwareversion schwierig zu handhaben und die Bedienung kommt etwas "hölzern" daher. Er beherrscht die Basics, ist jedoch nicht sehr intuitiv zu bedienen. Das Sequenzing ist ein ständiges hin und her schalten der Tatstatur zwischen der Stepposition und der Klaviatur. Es wäre wünschenswert, das ein kommendes Firmwareupdate den Notenwert bei gedrückter Step-Taste mit Hilfe des Potis einstellen lässt - so wie es bei sehr vielen anderen Herstellern der Fall ist.

OpenSource:
Der KORG Minilogue XD ist ein offenes System und kann mit selbst entwickelten Oszillatoren bestückt werden. Ich (Programmierer) habe mich mit diesem Thema beschäftigt. Das "Jedermann" mit diesem System und dem offenen JDK eigene Oszillatoren schreiben kann, möchte ich sehr stark bezweifeln. Sie müssen tiefgehende C++ Programmierekenntnisse besitzen und reichlich Zeit in die Entwicklung aufwenden. Schade finde ich daher auch, das KORG keine weiteren Oszillatoren zum freien Download anbietet obwohl der Synth schon eine geraume Zeit am Markt ist (zumindest habe ich nichts gefunden). Meine User-Oszillatoren bleiben daher wohl auf die werksseitig installierten beschränkt bleiben.

Fazit:
Der Minilogue XD Desktop ist für mich ein idealer eigenständiger Synthesizer für den Schreibtisch der viel Spaß macht und jede Menge Anschlussmöglichkeiten bietet - hochwertig verarbeitet und stylisch anzusehen. Ich steige jedoch nun auf ein modulares System um und bin etwas enttäuscht, das er nicht in ein Euro-Rack geschraubt werden kann - schade aber das war zum damaligen Zeitpunkt keine Kaufentscheidung.

Wirklich ärgerlich empfinde ich bei dem sonst so hervorragenden Instrument die Tatsache, das KORG mit Öffnung des Systems für eigene Entwicklungen viel Potential verschenkt hat. Die Programmierung eigener Oszillatoren kann nur mit Programmierkenntnissen in C++ erfolgen. Ich hätte mir einen abstrakten Layer gewünscht, der einfache Oszillatorvorgaben in die Sprache des XD übersetzt.

Ansonsten ein top Gerät !!!

Unvorstellbar gut
Gotthard O., 19.06.2020
Ich bin von der KORG XD-Idee sehr begeistert. Man nimmt einen analogen Synth und würzt diesen mit einer offenen digitalen API für Oszillatoren und Effekte. Fertig ist eine Mischung, die seines Gleichen sucht.

Der Monologue hat fette analoge Sounds, hybride Klänge bis zum digitalen kühlen Sounds. Wenn man dazu diverse OSC's und Effekte von "Sinevibes" & Co installiert, bekommt man eine unendliche Spielwiese voller Klängen.

Überspitzt kann man sagen, dass Korg den Plugout-Gedanken zu Ende gedacht hat, ohne den Klonprozess zu starten, wie die deutsch/asiatische Freundschaft. Der Preis ist heiß oder man greift gleich zum Prologue.

What a synth!
Kris66, 28.12.2020
I am super happy with my new Minilogue XD. Prior to this i have used a Monologue and it's a no-brainer to upgrade to the XD. The workflow is the same and it feels familiar and it can easily produce the sounds the Monologue did + so much more!.
The sounds it can produce are amazing and with the build in effects you have a synth capable of most of what much more expensive synths can do. Example Korgs own Prologue 8/16.
It's also very portable for live gigs and a sure instant classic.

Pro's
Weigh almost nothing
Very sturdy build
Easy to program
Great motion sequencer
Capable of loading users own waveforms.

Con's
I really have none.

Sehr schöner Sound
Bagheera, 14.12.2020
Der Minilogue XD hat einen sehr guten Sound und dank dem Stereo Out in Verbindung mit den internen Effekten kann man ein sehr gutes Klangbild erzeugen.

Anfangs hatte ich etwas Bedenken mir die XD ohne Keyboard zu kaufen aber da ich über die DAW trotzdem Polyphon spielen kann ist es nicht wirklich schlimm und man kann somit wirklich Platz sparen.
