Love the flexibility and recall of digital? Me too.
Here are some ways to combine an analog synth with a computer environment.
Get additional oscillators into your Minilogue!! Connect your minilogue and use it as a modular system in your computer!
You’ll need either a 5 pin MIDI to USB, or a USB cable to connect the Minilogue to your computer.
Download drivers, and firmware updates http://www.korg.com/us/support/download/product/0/544/
Correction in the video! I said that for your MIDI tracks in your DAW, use the MIDI OUT option (you’ll see in the video what I mean). When in fact you’ll need to use the MIDI SOUND option provided by the driver.
Give your electronic production a sonic boost! And what an UNBELIEVABLE price point ($499)!!
In the past few weeks, the Korg Minilogue has gone public. Perhaps at NAMM 2016 last week.
I’ve worked with virtual synths for hours within days, days within weeks, weeks within years. And when I turn to watch films or listen to records that contain synths, instruments that create real voltage, the sound quality is significantly more pure.
I love my virtual synths, and will certainly continue to use them (Serum, Spire, U-he, Curve2, Omnisphere, Arturia, etc.).
But it bothers me that I have so much $ tied up in digital ones and zeroes. I don’t have something physical, that I can sell if I need, loan to a friend, or that somebody will inherit when I die. Those plugins …. who knows what will happen to those? When I die, the licenses will probably just disappear into the internet chasm forever, unclaimed access.
Anyway, check out the features on this Minilogue, and the sound quality; I’m amazed and will probably buy one this week.
5-Pin Midi for integration with your DAW.

In the quest for creating new and interesting sounds, I wanted to figure out how I could run my audio/MIDI tracks through a virtual synth, and use the effects to creatively alter the sound. It took some time, but I have it figured out and wanted to share the secrets!
If you own the Moog Modular (version 2.8+) or download the free demo, you can try this!
I don’t know that I have very usable results yet with the patches I’ve designed and the sound sources I’ve tried them with, but I can hear the potential. And it sure is fun experimenting with this!
