Digilogue is a music album of recordings which became the twentieth commercial release by the British avant-garde music group :zoviet*france:. It was first released in 1996 in limited edition 12 inch clear vinyl album format by the USmarker record label, Soleilmoon Recordings. Subsequently, a CD version was released in 1998 by Soleilmoon Recordings, with additional tracks.

The album's title is an amalgamation of the words digital and analogue, two of the principal technologies that have been used in sound recording. The group have been quoted as adopting the failings in these technologies as a production technique in the creation of the album: “All audio equipment distorts sound to some degree and, eventually through mechanical and electrical failure, fucks it up. Since indeterminacy as a compositional parameter has been a constant in our work, this often produces what we regard as interesting new developments. digilogue was recorded using a mixture of failing analogue equipment and high-end digital equipment, and monitored in our studio exclusively on damaged hi-fi speakers. Sound can be as dirty and as clumsy as anything else we perceive with our senses. This is just as true of sound generated in the digital domain, much as we would all like to believe the claims of near-perfection made by audio equipment manufacturers.”"We were using digital equipment to produce the music but in a very analogue way. We were using sampling processes but in a very clumsy and coarse way."

"Amber", from the CD version of the album, was used as the soundtrack to The Shop Floor, a video production by the artist Francis Gomila (UKmarker, 2003).
