Korg announces new synth, Prologue

Prologue synthesizer announced by Korg is a programmable, full-featured synthesizer, preceded by four-voice polyphonic Minilogue and the monophonic Monologue, the Prologue-8 and Prologue-16 available from January.

The long-awaited debut flagship, Prologue, is a many-voiced synthesizer that derives this time with a brand new full sized keyboard, growing its features on powerful analog circuits, borrowed originally from the previous models of the series. In addition, with the new more improved digital multi-engine and DSP-based effects, Prologue has developed the variety of sounds and the options for user preferences, voice modes that allow voices to be flexibly recombined, newly developed L.F. COMP (Low-Frequency Compressor) analog effect (prologue-16 only) and newly developed multi-engine equipped with three types: noise, high-quality digital effects.

Prologue can also simultaneously play two programs at a time, compromised with two models that cover a wide range of stage use, but also home, studio: 16-voice 61-key Prologue-16, and the eight-voice 49-key Prologue-8. With the new features available, the synthesizer is skilled of sounds that go past existing analog synthesizers, considered as the new ultimate multi-voice, multi-timbre and multi-engine.

Korg released the Prologue-8 and Prologue-16 in January for $1499 and $1999 respectively.
