Sinevibes’ Groove could add a new dimension to your Prologue, Minilogue XD or NTS-1

Sinevibes Groove can turn your compatible Korg synth into a multitimbral bass and drum machine. This will run on the Prologue, Minilogue XD and NTS-1 synths, and features an advanced network of 14 DSP blocks that reconfigure themselves in real-time. This translates into bass, drum and percussion instruments that are mapped onto seven separate keyboard zones, providing you with a self-contained groovebox-style sound module.

Each zone comes with a wide selection of presets (more than 70 are provided in total) and has a switch for variable trigger probability, adding life to your bass riffs and drum patterns. There’s also a specially designed output stage with “unusually punchy” dynamics.

Groove looks to represent one of the most ingenious uses of Korg’s Multi-Engine technology yet seen and could be particularly transformative for NTS-1 owners who are looking to add an extra dimension to their compact synth.

It costs $59 and is available now over on the Sinevibes website.
