If you make music, then you'll want to consider adding the Korg Minilogue ($500) to your arsenal. The Minilogue is the first polyphonic analog synthesizer with presets at its price point. Polyphonic instruments can play multiple notes at the same time, usually making them much more expensive. The Minilogue features a 16-step poly note and motion sequencer, voice allocation mode with eight modes, delay effect, 200 editable preset locations with 100 preloaded, and an OLED screen with an oscilloscope. With such a great set of features, you also need a beautiful hardware. With this kit your get metal shaft chassis-mounted posts, rubber-coated knobs, a curved aluminum panel, and a Pyinkado wood rear panel.
