The Minilogue XD retains the same chassis, albeit in a black livery, with 3/4-sized keys and a similar overall layout. The Minilogue XD also retains the four-parameter Motion Sequencer of its predecessor, but the synth engine has been enhanced and the four parameter lanes are now displayed on a new, slightly larger OLED display.


The voice structure of Minilogue XD is 2VCO + MULTI ENGINE, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. The additional sound engine is equipped with three different types of sound generator; noise, VPM, and user slot that enable you to take advantage of a sonic character that is different than analog, and use it at the same time as the analog engine. The Minilogue XD also offers a high-quality digital effect engine and shared the open development API (Application Programming Interface) of the Prologue. Users are allow to extend the possibilities of the hardware via an SDK (Software Development Kit) and dedicated development tools. The modulation effects, reverb, and delay (3 types) can be used simultaneously, enabling you choose from a wide range of options, including chorus, ensemble, warm tape delay, and a diverse variety of reverb. The Minilogue XD has 16 user effect slots that you can customize.
