General



After the overwhelming success of the polyphonic



minilogue, KORG introduces the monophonic monologue synthesizer. It



looks a lot like its predecessor, but under the bonnet, it's been fully



revamped to offer optimal monophonic possibilities. This fully-analogue



synth has an improved filter, modulation section, drive circuit and LFO.



The filter ensures extra powerful low tones and the drive circuit



places emphasis on the lead sounds like never before. The LFO with



One-Shot mode produces high frequencies and modulated sounds like you've



never heard before. If you want to see as well as hear all the synth



mayhem you're creating, there's a built-in OLED display with an



oscilloscope.






Monologue: Anything but Boring




For starters, the step sequencer of this ingenious instrument is easy



to operate via the motion sequence. On top of that, the monologue is



fully-programmable, as well as the aforementioned sequences. If you're a



real synthesizer fanatic, chances are you own more than one synth.



Using the available connection options, you can hook the monologue up to



your MIDI controllers, pad controllers, sequencers and DAWs. Using



Audio Sync, you can easily integrate it into a KORG setup with your



volca keys, electribe, minilogue and, naturally, your SQ-1. So, whether



you're just getting acquainted with this type of synthesizer or you’re



expanding on your current collection, this Silver KORG monologue



monophonic synthesizer is nothing short of a must-have!

"great hands-on interface and it's just tons of fun"


Not if you're stuck inside with someone playing chopsticks on it for 2 weeks

Great reason to buy another one and some of those Beyerdynamic cans that are on offer :

It's a monophonic synth so you couldn't play chopsticks, thank God. No speaker either so the player will need headphones...or speakers
On a lighter note (ho ho), though I am a proponent of the mighty Novation Bass Station 2, I'd say the Monologue is kinda unmatched at this price point. Novation doesn't have an option (but the BS2 has a deeper architecture and the incredible Aphex Mode), and Arturias have no patch storage let alone an on board sequencer....

And this thing genuinely sounds good. I'm tempted, but I really don't need it

Great little mono synth. Runs on batteries as well.
Just what I need for when I'm role playing Sparks with my wife.

Great bit of kit to learn on, got one as my first synth and it's been a blast. The sequencer means anyone can get some sort of groove going and the 4 lanes of motion sequencing massively expand the possibilities. Sound sculpting is really easy with many hands on controls to tweak, very little menu diving required.

Bax are fine, just sometimes things ship with a euro plug rather than a UK one (maybe why the ratings are lower?) but that's usually mentioned in the description and reflected in the prices often being the best. The Monologue doesn't ship with an ac adapter anyway, just 6 aa batteries. Korg's own adapter is a little pricey but plenty of compatible 3rd party alternatives on Ebay etc. Personally I use a plug with a 5-way splitter so that I can also power my Volca's from the same single source https://myvolts.co.uk/product/18810/5-way_power_splitter_cable_for_Korg_Volca_by_MyVolts_(5-way_splitter_+_PSU)

Please beware of ordering from Bax a the moment. They are fulfilling their online orders from mainland europe, using a french logistics company that has shut down from the 17th of March and might be close until mid 15 April or for even longer. One of my orders is now in limbo

Only order if you are sure the order will come from their UK shop.

I think we all should be more selective in our online ordering for the forseeable future. That is frustrating but honestly does not surprise me.

Try, DV247, GAK, Absolute Music (I've had fantastic experience with them), Andertons (great here too) and PMT instead.

A few minutes ago I got a message from Hermes saying that they had the parcel, so it was ok. I just want to stress that this was in no way Bax doing something dodgy. For what I could read on the statement from the French delivery company, it looks like the French government issue a decree saying that all non essential companies had to shut down (or something similar).
