It's official: New 4 voice analog synthesizer from Korg, called the Minilogue, for $500

If you were hoping this year would bring a new analog mono synth from a major manufacturer, Korg has you covered.  The Minilogue is the latest and greatest of Korg's analog revival.  The Minilogue is a 4 voice polyphonic analog synth with 200 patches, OLED display with oscilloscope, and plenty of knobs.

There had been countless internet posts asking for an affordable analog because of Korg's recent dips into the market, and finally, we have what looks to be the dream entry polysynth for the affordable price of $500 USD.
