Korg to debut Prologue – new flagship analogue synth
Described by its maker as: ‘The ultimate multi-voice, multi-timbre, multi-engine’, Korg’s Prologue is a fully-programmable, full-featured, professional synthesiser, 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 DSP-based effects, Korg says Prologue expands the variety of sounds and the possibilities for user customisation.
The line-up comprises 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.
