Product Description

The Korg drumlogue marks a paradigm shift in drum machines. It offers the raw power and rich sounds of Analog, the flexibility of Digital voices, and drumlogue’s SDK for fully customizable User Custom Synthesizers. On top of that, its heavy-duty, dynamic sequencer, customizable effects, and intuitive controls will make drumlogue a must-have in your studio to create music for any genre or style.

It’s time to take your beats and entire musical process to a whole new creative level with incredible sounds, effects, customization, and sequencing. Let drumlogue support your craft on your musical journey!

RAW ANALOG POWER

drumlogue was conceived to provide the ultimate analog sound for your beats, and delivers fantastically; featuring completely newly developed analog circuits by legendary Korg analog synth team engineer Junichi Ikeuchi (ARP 2600 M, MS-20 mini, ARP Odyssey…) , the depth and richness of its sound is on a whole new level.

These new analog circuits - (Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Low Tom and High Tom) - will not just provide a solid foundation for your track, but make it stand out with an elevated harmonic richness and a thick low end.

Blending simplicity and ease of use, the most important controls for each of these parts have dedicated knobs on the front panel that can be tweaked at any time without any menu diving necessary, so you can quickly and intuitively fine tune your sound on the fly. For further sound exploration, each part provides many more parameters accessible through the powerful onboard sound editing system.

Last but not least, each part on drumlogue - analog or digital - has a dedicated volume knob that will make your mixing process incredibly smooth and easy.

DIGITAL FLEXIBILITY

As the perfect partner for its analog section, drumlogue provides 7 digital parts; 6 sample based and 1 synthesis based (Multi-Engine). The sample based parts can play any of the preloaded PCM banks on drumlogue. You can also import your own User Samples to its memory, making drumlogue an extremely versatile machine with virtually limitless sonic possibilities.

To start with, the 128 preloaded drum kits of drumlogue will provide you with a wide variety of sounds spanning several genres so you can easily kick-start your tracks.

For additional sounds, samples can easily be easily loaded into the drumlogue just by connecting your drumlogue to your computer via USB and simply drag-dropping your samples onto the main memory.

MULTI-ENGINE AND LOGUE SDK

The popular Multi Engine from prologue and minilogue xd is now more powerful than ever. In addition to the Variable Phase Modulation (VPM) and Noise generator engines, the Multi Engine features a new User Custom slot that can play full-fledged synth voices that provide vast sonic possibilities, never before heard on a drum machine.

CUSTOM SYNTHS

drumlogue’s synth voices are not simply static waveforms. Custom synths can be built to not only generate sound, even implementing built in filters, LFOs, MIDI controlled polyphony or other parameters is now possible The only restriction for third party developers is their creativity (and CPU usage!), giving you unbound sound exploration.

EXCLUSIVE SINEVIBES SYNTH PLUG-IN “NANO”

Korg has collaborated with popular logueSDK plugin developer “Sinevibes” to include a brand new synth plugin “Nano” as a factory preset on drumlogue. This exclusive plugin explores the power behind the expanded Multi Engine and will give all drumlogue users a taste of this new platform.

“Nano” is a full-fledged virtual analog synth with a wide array of features and plenty of customizable parameters. The synth engine has dual oscillators with optional ring modulation, a 4-pole state-variable filter with soft clipping distortion, built-in EG and built-in multi-waveform LFO.

Leads, basses, percussive sounds or cinematic effects, you decide how to use this incredible sonic potential!

A TRUE SEQUENCING POWERHOUSE

Tired of the same old beats? drumlogue's heavy duty 64 step sequencer makes it easy and intuitive to create complex rhythm patterns and polyrhythms that elevate your music creation process with innovative features such as per-step probability, per-step alternate trigger patterns, per-step micro offsets, per-track groove patterns and much more.

Thanks to its clear OLED display, it is also very easy to visually follow and edit your sequences.

drumlogue is both great in the studio and playing live. With its Chain mode, creating long and interesting patterns is straightforward and clearly displayed. In Loop mode you can switch between several variations to play your sequence in new and interesting ways. The Motion and Accent recording functions are intuitive and fast and if you want to try new things on your track, the Randomization function is there to help you. These functions and many more on the drumlogue will support and spice up your live performances!

EFFECTS AND CUSTOMIZATION

drumlogue includes several high-quality effects across three categories that can be used simultaneously: Delay, Reverb and Master effects. The send amounts for delay and reverb effects can be set independently for each part, and multiple return points are available.

The master effects allow you to add that final polish to your sound and bring it all together. Master effects can be bypassed on a per-part basis, making it possible to send the effect to specific audio parts. A sidechain bus is also available to master effects which can make use of it.

In addition to the included multiple and varied Delay, Reverb and Master effects, drumlogue can also load custom third party Delay / Reverb / Master Effects. Each effect can implement up to 24 parameters, all easily accessed in the well laid out menu.

drumlogue has an audio input, so you can process other instruments through drumlogue’s effect chain, making it an ideal companion for your studio setup.

CONNECTIVITY

drumlogue's USB-A port allows connectivity with other USB MIDI class compliant devices for additional customizable control. For example, control each part’s volume with the nanoKONTROL2 faders, or trigger sounds using the velocity sensitive pads on the nanoPAD2, adding extra levels of expression and integration.

drumlogue has four individual audio outputs, in addition to the headphone and L/MONO and R outputs. You can assign any part to any output to expand routing options for external processing or multitrack recording. drumlogue easily syncs to your other gear via MIDI IN/OUT, SYNC IN/OUT, or to a computer-based DAW via USB.

EASE OF USE

Designed with simplicity and accessibility in mind, the most important parameters for your main drum parts all have dedicated knobs on the front panel that can be adjusted on the fly, as well as dedicated volume pots for each part that will speed up your mixing process.

Its wide and clear OLED screen coupled with its simple UI with 4 dedicated encoder knobs makes the navigation process fast and smooth.

FORM FACTOR, DESIGN

Unlike most drum machines, drumlogue’s main panel is slanted offering great ergonomics and improved visibility. With its sturdy aluminum body, brushed hairline finish, and wooden side panels, drumlogue’s sleek and optimized design will add to your musical inspiration.
