Korg introduces Minilogue Bass Synthesizer


Korg takes the Minilogue polysynth to deep, dark places with a new limited edition Bass version.

Korg has introduced the Minilogue Bass, a style variation of the original Minilogue analog synthesizer. The Bass version features “inverted red and black keys and a liquid swirl design front panel”.

If that isn’t enough for you, how about 100 new sounds, 40 of which have been designed specifically for bass by a team comprising pro bassists and programmers? You also have space for 100 user programs.

What Korg say about the Minilogue Bass:

“Get juice and squelch. Throbbing Drive. Greasy fatness. Liquid ooze. And all in genuine analog warmth and studio quality clarity.

KORG’s minilogue – with its completely unique analog signal path, compact format, easy-to-play slim keys, and extensive sound capabilities – is one of the most popular, best selling synthesizers in music history.

Now welcome the incredible limited edition minilogue bass; designed and voiced to add inspirational bass into your music.

minilogue bass features programs created by a specially selected group of bass playing and programming pros from around the world so you get a big variety of rich, analog synth bass sounds that will inspire you and help your music stand out.”


If you’d forgotten, the Minilogue is a 4-voice analogue polysynth with two VCOs, a VCF, two EGs, a VCA and an LFO. There are eight voice modes – poly, duo, unison, mono, chord, delay, arp and sidechain – an oscilloscope that ‘visualises’ your sound, and a 16-step polyphonic note and motion sequencer. Connectivity options include MIDI, USB MIDI and Audio Sync.


The Minilogue Bass’s striking front panel is made of 2mm sand-blasted aluminium, and there’s a red-coloured wood rear panel. Korg claims that the metal shaft chassis-mounted potentiometers and rubber-coated knobs make the synth suitable for life on the road, and you can load existing Minilogue patches – plus factory and bonus libraries – via the dedicated sound librarian.

The Minilogue Bass is a ‘limited-edition’ priced at $580/£649. Find out more on the Korg website.
