Absolute beauty
plexa, 30.01.2020
Absolutely amazing poly. Lush pads, tight envelopes work quite nicely for rhythmic elements. Nice appregiator but would love a sequencer on this. only scratched the surface with it. It's a go to machine for me and super inspiring to play. You wont be disappointed

Ganz großes Kino
Pete.B.Cain, 19.07.2020
Ich habe mir den Prologue für mein Studio und zum Entwickeln von Korg User Units geholt (Oszillatoren und Effekte).

Gleich beim ersten Antesten konnte er vollkommen überzeugen. Die Haptik wertig, der Grundsound edel, rund und majestätisch.

Bedienung:

Die Oberfläche ist zur Bedienung des analogen Signalwegs ausgelegt. Sie unterstützt das intuitive Sounddesign durch die logische Anordnung und neue Sounds zu erzeugen oder bestehende anzupassen geht leicht von der Hand.
+ Knob per Function für Analogsounds
+ Das Oszilloscop ist vor allem beim Sound Editing sehr hilfreich.
+ Sehr intuitive Oberfläche
- Der Program/Value Knob ist ein fühlbar gerasterter Drehimpulsgeber. Hier fehlt die Möglichkeit die Schrittzahl zu erhöhen. (Du willst einen Wert von '0' auf '100' ändern bedeutet, dass du den Program/Value Knob ewig drehst.
- Die Editierung der Multi Engine ist mühsam. Dies betrifft digitale Oszillatoren sowie die Effekte.
- Pitch Bend und Modulation Wheels sind eher stiefmütterlich behandelt. Sie sind klein, und oberhalb der Tastatur angebracht.

Features:

Der Prologue ist ein grundsolider und wandelbarer Synthesizer. Die Multi Engine als dritter Oszillator eröffnet noch eine zusätzliche Hybridwelt. Aber ein Modulationsmonster ist er einfach nicht. Er bietet 2 analoge und einen digitalen Oszillator, einen 2-Pole Filter, diverse Voice Modi einen Arpeggiator ...
+ Die Multi Engine ermöglicht dir zusätzliche Oszillatoren und Effekte zur Soundgestaltung zu laden. Es gibt eine Entwicklergemeinde, welche fortlaufend neue Module erstellt
+ Master & Sub Timbre mit der Möglichkeit zwei Klänge im Split, Layer oder Crossfade Mode zu betreiben.
+ LF Compressor - it's magic
- Ein LFO und 2 Hüllkurven. Ernsthaft?
- Entweder Delay ODER Reverb - da kann der NTS-1 mehr....
- Kein Aftertouch

Sound:

Der Sound ist das, was mich überzeugt. Wie eingangs bereits erwähnt ist er edel. Da ich selbst für die Multi Engine entwickle und bislang nur den NTS-1 hatte war ich absolut überrascht, wie toll die CZ-Emulation und auch die Karplus Strong Synthese auf diesem Gerät klingt.
+ Fett, rund, edel, analog

Verarbeitung

Metall, Holz. Potis und Drehimpulsgeber sind angenehm griffig und fühlen sich wertig an. Die Schalter machen einen soliden Eindruck. Die Tastatur ist eine der besten, die ich habe. Wie schon erwähnt fehlt mir hier der After Touch, aber da kann ich immer auf eine andere ausweichen.
+ Einfach top

Fazit:

Wer sich nach analoger poly Wärme sehnt ist hier absolut richtig. Ich hoffe, dass Korg zumindest noch die Delay oder Reverb Restriktion in einem Update irgendwann behebt, aber da kann ja immer noch extern Abhilfe geschaffen werden.

Tweakable Sound

Met de Deepmind 12 was ik al tevreden, maar met de Prologue kan ik echt 'verder'. Sterk design en stabiel geluid (Deepmind zingt nog wel eens 'vals'.)
In combinatie met mijn Yamaha S70 XS , Microkorg en Akai GX 4400 D heb ik een dijk van een studio.
