Maybe they'll finally be releasing those Odyssey desktop modules we all ordered months ago?

I was just going to reference this. The Volca line is really starting to get my attention and it' time I get on board.

Yeah, looks nice, but probably it again will be only 3 voice, to fit with the family :-(

I wasn't going to speculate, but the logical new synth for Korg to get on the market (ahead of Behringer) would be something like a Maxilogue Pro - 8-12 voices, full size keybed, with a few more features than the Minilogue.

Take my money now!

In electronic music, sequencers are as important as synths, they all modify your composition and playing

Comes in the five colours of the stripes from that teaser, guess we're not getting a Polysix yet after all. :(

...yeah, I'm not seein' the point there.

Well, anyway, I've got an MS-20 and an Odyssey out of them so far, so it'd probably be a little crass to complain too much.

1. #minikeys

2. "Rather than going from C to C octaves though, this new instrument is laid out from E to E so that guitarists, bassists and other musicians always have quick access to a low E note"

Dude, basses with more than 4 strings go down to low B. Low E ain't low enough!

3. What's an "analog drive circuit?" Sounds like it's actually mostly digital with some analog components.

4. Have to admit though, "Monologue" is a pretty clever name.
