Korg Monologue Synth Blue
The Korg Monologue Synth Blue is a compact, portable monophonic analogue synthesizer basing its design on the original Minilogue from Korg, focusing on monophonic synthesis and adding a range of new features.
The step sequencer has been updated and now features 16 Step buttons allowing you to make real-time step edit. Micro-tuning capabilities have also been added for in-depth synthesis. The Monologue stays true to its original design, only tweaking certain aspects to improve functionality and audio performance, delivering a powerful yet portable monophonic synthesis experience that can be powered by batteries.
The Monologue’s synthesis engine has been overhauled with a range of new features that improve functionality and performance. The VCF has been changed for 2-pole for added bite and crunch. A Drive dial has been added for rich bass and cutting leads, and the LFO control has been expanded with higher rates and deeper modulation for increased control. A push button and turn knob for ‘parameter lock’ style motion sequencing. A key trigger allows transposition control of sequences in real-time.
The synthesizer has a monophonic design and is programmable with up to 20 user program memories with 80 pre-set sounds included. The drive section has also been expanded for a richer and more versatile sonic palette, creating a powerhouse when combined with the updated sequencing capabilities.
The built-in 16-step sequencer features motion sequence recording capabilities, which give you a wide spectrum of possibilities when it comes to recording and arranging sounds. Providing real-time recording with overdubbing, the Monologue lets you record and arrange with each, with step-recording letting you record by consecutively entering notes, allowing you to create complex rhythms and sequences on the fly.
One of the most unique features of this powerful synthesizer is the Oscilloscope. The OLED display will show you the waveform as you craft your sound. As well as being an entertaining add-on, this also helps when creating sounds as you see how the sound changes as you tweak each control.
