Korg’s Minilogue and Monologue synthesizers have set the world of synthesis alight. Their sound quality, usability and tempting price point make them a fun choice for anybody wanting to bash out some electronic noises. Korg is committed to keeping them at the top of their game and have released a couple of updates to do just that.
The Minilogue, being the older of the two, has already received a few system updates. The previous version 1.21 added a latch mode for the arpeggiator and corrected some CC numbers. This version 1.23 fixes the priority of voices in the release stage. Baby steps, but even the tiniest of fixes makes someone’s life better.
Also updated is the free Minilogue and Monologue sound librarian. The librarian is a piece of PC or Mac software that allows you to reorder and manage the programs stored inside the synth. You can also use it to load custom banks of sounds. The new 1.01 version brings some added features. The Program Names can now be edited in the Program List. Preset data can be added via the menu. You can now copy multiple selections of programs from preset Data to the Program List. And that annoying problem with the Japanese localisation support on OSX 10.12 has been fixed (thank the maker).
As a bonus Korg also released new drivers for the nanoKontrol Studio, nanoKey Studio, microKey Air and Korg BLE-MIDI Driver.
