This is Volume I (V2) for the KORG Prologue Synthesizer. This volume contains 65 patches lovingly hand crafted from scratch and newly overhauled for Version 2. These custom synth patches utilize the strengths of the Prologue architecture to create stunning hybrid tones oozing with that beautiful Korg VCO character.
So what exactly did we update? First of all, we went back and fixed a few things that bugged us about the (V1) release. Then we added all new aftertouch assignments to practically every patch in this bank. Patch 065 "Clap C3-C4 2" has no assignment as there is no sustain to the sound. We might have went a little overboard here but we think you will be pleasantly surprised when playing the Prologue from a distance with these patches. While we were at it, we also assigned the expression pedal to the main volume parameter for each and every patch. We use the Moog EP-3 expression pedal here at Robust HQ. (You will probably need to adjust your external level range knob for perfect control) Every patch in this bank has been updated and we completely reworked 12 of the patches. Your Prologue should be running the latest O.S. (Version 2) released in September of 2019 for proper operation of these patches. Here's a breakdown, sorted by category, of the patches included in Volume I:
19 Poly Synths
6 Sound FX
You get the bank file that contains all 65 patches which can be loaded into the free Prologue Librarian with one click. You also get the individual patch files making it possible to audition and load sounds without loading the whole bank. We've also included 5 extra patches because they just happened while we were working on the update. So that makes a grand total of 70 patches. Finally, you get a brand new Patch List (pdf) file that puts the Version 1 patch list to shame! It includes patch names, descriptions, the voice mode used, and lots of helpful info on what the controllers are doing. (Velocity, Modwheel and Aftertouch are explained for each patch) You also get a copy of the Version 1 release for this volume. When we were testing the new sounds here at Robust HQ, more than once the Version 1 patch won the day...Aftertouch be damned! So you get both versions as there are considerable differences between the two.
