Update – Create Your Own Minilogue Preset Bank

A lot has happened since my last post about how to make your own preset banks for the Minilogue editor. For one thing, unbeknownst to me, Korg in fact has uploaded the MIDI implementation for the Minilogue. http://www.korg.com/us/support/download/manual/0/544/2890/ I’m not sure how I missed that! In any case, I owe Korg an apology as they obviously did listen to their customers on this issue, and for that I commend them.

The second thing that’s happened is there is now an actual synth editor being actively developed for both Mac and PC, and although I’ve only begun to play with it, it seems to be everything we’ve all been hoping for–a way to create synth patches using a computer, including the ability to edit the motion sequence data. You can find out more about this project here: http://audio.julieneres.com/product/minilogueEdit

The third thing that’s happened is that, since creating my first post on creating a minilogue preset, I’ve realized that not everyone has the time or inclination to create banks like this by hand. So I created a little command-line utility in Python so others can create presets more easily. Note; you do need to know how to run a Python script from the terminal, and unfortunately, I cannot offer any help with this (otherwise I’d never have time to do anything else), but for those who are interested, you can find it here: https://github.com/tunabee/minilogue-lib2preset It’s designed to run in either Python 2.x or 3.x and doesn’t require any external dependencies. I haven’t had a ton of time to work on it so it’s pretty rough around the edges, but it does work!
