As a mini key, short key, and thin key hater, which I blogged about in Size Matters, I am overjoyed to see a manufacturer release a module version of a reasonably cool synth burdened by less than standard keys. When I first saw this, I thought it was a hack, but no it is true.
The new Minilogue XD module is essentially the same thing as a Minilogue XD without the keyboard and an extra special trick. You can connect a module to a Minilogue XD and they will operate as one eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer OR you can connect 2 modules to operate as one eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer with your own MIDI controller. Or just run the module alone with your own MIDI controller as a 4-voice synth.
According to Korg the master unit takes priority for producing notes, and the fifth and subsequent voices are assigned to the slave unit.
