Korg announces the Monologue – Monophonic Analog Synthesizer!
After a hugely successful launch of Korg’s Minilogue, a four voice analog polyphonic synth, it seems that Korg got busy creating the Monologue. The Monologue is a 25-key Monophonic Analog Synthesizer, with 2 VCOs, 1 VCF, 1 EG, 1 LFO, and 16-step Sequencer.
Described as “a 25-key, fully programmable monophonic analog synthesizer with a voice all its own. While sharing its sleek layout, knob-per-function workflow and high-quality construction with the best-selling minilogue, monologue is a truly unique new synth for all types of musicians; featuring new voicing and sound sculpting abilities – at an amazing price. The monologue’s completely new filter, modulation, drive, and LFO can generate powerful basses and sharp leads, creating awesome mono sounds that showcase its single-voice design. The step sequencer has also been dramatically expanded, allowing more intuitive and more complex editing. With a lineup that gives you a choice of five eye-catching colors, this compact instrument has a strong personality to match your own.
