prologue is an advanced and fully programmable professional synthesizer. Preceded by the polyphonic four-voice minilogue and monophonic monologue, we present the long-awaited debut of the flagship: the prologue.
prologue is a polyphonic analog synthesizer equipped with a standard-size keyboard. With powerful analog circuitry, sourced directly from previous models in the series, along with a newly developed digital multi-engine and excellent DSP effects, prologue expands the range of sounds and possibilities to suit your needs.
The range consists of two models that meet the needs of musicians to use it not only on stage, but also in the studio, at home, or on the road: the prologue-16 with 16 voices and 61 keys, and the prologue-8 with eight voices and 49 keys. These instruments are capable of creating sounds that go beyond existing analog synthesizers.
The prologue is an analog polyphonic synthesizer with 8 or 16 multitimbral voices. KORG’s analog synthesizer development in recent years has culminated in the prologue, which has been designed using 11,000 discrete electronic components. Although the prologue is the flagship, it retains the ease of use and accessibility of its predecessors. It features a fully analog signal path, impeccable sound quality, impressive presence that sets it apart from any other polyphonic synthesizer, and the same intuitive interface as minilogue and monologue, allowing you quick access to the universe of analog synthesis.
The prologue uses a 2VCO + MULTI-MOTOR, 1VCF, 2EG, 1VCA and 1LFO structure. In addition to the original distinctive circuitry, such as ‘wave shaping’ that modulates the harmonics of the oscillator and a sync / ring switch, prologue also features a two-pole low-pass filter with increased biting, drive that adds powerful distortion, and a low cut filter (high pass) switch. Every detail has been improved in relation to the minilogue and monologue. Its sound encompasses all sonic possibilities: thick bass, powerful lead sounds and atmospheric pads, just as you would expect on a polyphonic synthesizer.
