Now offically announced, $619 at dealers
The new Minilogue XD has some of the most popular distinct features of the Monologue – polyphonic sequencer and microtunings, and the Prologue – MULTIdigital Oscillator, new effects and stereo, interesting upgrades for about $100 more than a standard Minilogue. The XD also has 2 CV inputs and 500 preset locations. The filter also has been updated to compensate for the low end roll-off of the original Minilogue filter, a common complaint.
The XD still has the slim mini-keys, which I hate as mentioned in my post Size Matters, but in fairness many like even prefer them over a standard keybed. The joystick is a definite improvement over the Minilogue slider in my opinion.
My personal preference would have been a slightly larger format with 37 standard sized keys and pitch/mod wheel. I still feel $719 for such a synth would have comfortably sat in between the Minilogue and Prologue. I also think the market yearns for a supply your own keyboard MIDI controller desktop model which would be ultra-easy to configure, but the concept might be intimidating to first time synth purchasers.
Make no mistake though, however I feel or the variations the market wishes for, the Minilogue is a top seller and the Minilogue XD is destined to be one.
