Patch Base 2.5 is now available, and with it comes an editor for the Korg Minilogue. Now you can visualize any patch on your Minilogue, as well as edit all synth and sequencer parameters. Fetch patches from your synth, create new patches from an init patch, or create random patches to discover new sounds. And as always, you can store your entire patch library on your iPad, and organize it into folders. For the next several days, the In-App Purchase for the Minilogue editor is 50% off.
The top half of the editor shows all of the synth's voice parameters, while the bottom half gives controls for editing both notes and motion sequencing data, complete with copy, paste, randomization, and initialization functions. You can create your own sequences in the editor itself, or use it to perfect a sequence you recorded while playing the Minilogue itself.
The top 4 rows of the editor give access to all the voice parameters of the Minilogue, including some parameters that are only accessible via menu diving on the synth itself.
The bottom 5 rows of the editor give you full access to the Minilogue's step and motion sequencers. You can edit up to 4 separate notes per step, and 4 different motion-sequenced parameters. You can also initialize, randomize, copy, and paste sequence data.
