Ive had my eye on this one. Can anyone justify the extra 400$ for the 16? Beside more octaves, voices and the compressor? Very tempted.

I find 8 voices sufficient 99% of the time and you will only hit a wall once you get into stacking and splitting your patches, or have really long release pads.

That being said, the extra voices, features and octave make it worth spending the extra cash. The keyboard isn't that great and Korg's customer service is pretty much nonexistent in my experience. But it is a fantastic sounding synth and you would get more out of it going the 16

This would be my first synth. I like the interface to learn subtractive synthesis. Id prefer and XD or mini but not a fan of the keys. Deepmind has some menu diving that might be hard for a beginner. Would you recommend this prologue 8 grrat for beginners? Or is there another one youd recommend. Thank you in advance.

Can't speak for the XD minilogue as I haven't played one but I think they have the same keys as the minilogue and I agree, they're terrible.

The Deepmind does have some menu diving yes, but most of the sound design you're doing is laid out on the front panel and the menus are perfectly useable IMO. It's a great synth and if you're after that Juno 106 sound it will get you 99% of the way there and the Keybed is better than the prologue I think. It can be had for under 500 so it's hard not to give it a shot.

The prologue is great and the most immediately gratifying and user friendly synth I own and it's hard to coax a bad sound of. It gets a lot of hate for not having a sequencer and only having 1 LFO but you can sequence with a daw or an iPad and I've personally never needed more than 1 LFO.

If it were me, I'd go the prologue if money isn't an issue because I prefer it's core sound and the unpredictability of VCO's to the deep minds DCO's. But you can't go wrong with either.

If the prologue had a sequencer it would have been a done deal but i also have a circuit to sequence so its not a big deal. Thank you so much! im sure others will appreicate your knowledge!

I'm tight on money right now, but sometimes i end up cheaping out and spend more than i should as i upgrade and learn. At 800 its worth a risk if i know i wont have to upgrade for a while.

I would save your money and go for the Deepmind. It'll give you time to learn sound design, figure out what you like and what you don't. And you can resell it for what you paid if it isn't your thing.

See if they're any synth shops around you and go spend some time with them and see what clicks for you.

Prologues only seem to be getting cheaper by the day, too so if you hold out you may get an even better deal.

They recently added after touch if you have a midi keyboard that supports it in the most recent firmware of the prologue which makes me wonder if they are going to announce a new "prologue XD" or something.

Sorry for the confusion. Yes the prologue is definitely the better synth to learn on hands down. Has next to no menu diving and plus the oscilloscope will let you visualize how everything you touch impacts and shapes the waveforms.

And as far as how good of a deal this is, I would bite. I paid 1319 for my prologue 16 and have no regrets. 800 is a steal for the 8 voice version and I personally don't see them going lower than that for Black Friday.
