NAMM 2021: The Drumlogue is the latest in a line of new products announced by Korg at this year’s Believe In Music Week. Blending analogue and digital sounds and the ability to load in user-created samples, the drum machine looks to be a tactile and valuable performance tool.

Very little information has been made available on the Drumlogue, but we do know that users can create parts with customisable oscillators, PCM sampling, and digital and analogue synthesis.

With a revamped Logue SDK, users can import their own content and load a range of different oscillators and effects. Drumlogue also has a rich effects section to process your parts, though not much more is mentioned on this feature.

Korg says the instrument sports a deep sequencer alongside a performance-friendly interface and individual assignable outputs. It looks like there are a lot of parameters onboard, so there may certainly be a lot of flexibility in sequencing and sound designing.

The Drumlogue follows the news of Korg’s ARP 2600 M, Modwave and MiniKorg 700FS. As this is said to be a prototype of the final product, we imagine the Drumlogue will be available at a much later date than the brand’s other 2021 releases.
