Fully programmable analog monophonic synthesizer with 25 slim keys.
The monologue by Korg is a programmable analog monophonic synthesizer that shares the sleek layout, knob-per-function workflow and high-quality construction of the best-selling minilogue. monologue is a new synth for all types of musicians; rock keyboard players appreciate its sine, saw and square wave leads and EDM producers will find its bass patches attractive for recording and shows.
A Fully Programmable Analog Synth
monologue gives you knob-per-function programmability, so you can create everything from crushing basses to crisp leads and complex rhythmic soundscapes quickly and easily. Even better, monologue has 100 program locations (80 preset + 20 user), a first for an analog keyboard in this price range. Each location can also retain its own 16-step sequence, including motion sequence automation.
A New Voice Above the Crowd
monologue’s engine starts with the same ground-up synthesis design that made the Korg minilogue famous, and adds features focused on amazing monophonic sounds. A new 2-pole VCF provides added bite, and a new analog Drive circuit delivers further punch and richness. The LFO has expanded control capabilities as well; with higher rates for deeper modulation possibilities.
Step Sequencing, Stepped-Up
monologue offers a powerful 16-step sequencer with a dedicated button per step for added ease of editing. It features motion sequencing with editing and the ability to “lock” parameters with individual steps. The sequencer also offers on-the-fly transposition via key triggering. All of these powerful new features can be used together to create complex, musical, and deeply dialed-in patterns.
In addition to 5-pin In/Out and USB MIDI, monologue includes Audio Sync connectivity which allows it to play in time and integrate seamlessly with Korg volcas, electribes, minilogue and SQ-1. Use the monologue with your DAW as both a USB MIDI controller or a versatile analog voice. Send clock over USB and use Audio Sync to chain monologue’s clock to other Audio Sync-equipped products.
The Key of “E”
monologue features a 25-key version of the same great-feeling key bed as minilogue, but instead of traditional C to C octaves, monologue is laid out E to E, so those low bass notes are always there! With a low E at your fingertips, guitarists and bassists will feel at home adding monologue to their live rig to expand their sound palettes.
A Build Quality to Rival its Sound Quality
monologue features the same rugged, high-quality build and standout looks as minilogue. Plus, there are five vibrant colors to choose from: silver, black, red, blue, and gold. The gorgeous curved aluminum top panel is married with chassis-mounted, rubber coated potentiometers for a look and feel that is substantial. The rear panel dons a real wood panel to bring add vintage feel to its ultra-contemporary design.
To round out the interface, you’ll find a helpful, clear OLED display with a real working oscilloscope that lets you “see” your sound. This display is unique to Korg’s latest analog models, and is as fun and educational as it is informative. monologue’s display calls up parameters as you tweak, making it easy to understand the potential of this powerful little synth.
