Monophonic Analogue Synthesizer
Korg - Monologue (Black)

Korg Monologue

Next-generation monophonic analogue synthesizerThe Korg Monologue is a 25-key, fully programmable monophonic analogue synthesizer with a voice of its own. With the same sleek layout, knob-per-function workflow and high-quality construction as the best-selling minilogue, monologue is a fully unique new synth for musicians of all styles.

Featuring new voicing and innovative sound sculpting abilities, the monologue's completely new filter, modulation, drive, and LFO can create effective basses, sharp leads and generate awesome mono sounds that compliment its single-voice design. The step sequencer has also been dramatically expanded, allowing for more intuitive and detailed editing. With a choice of five eye-catching colours, the Monologue is a compact instrument oozing in character.

At A Glance • Analogue monophonic synthesizer with built-in 16-step sequencer
• VCO 1: Saw, Triangle and Square waveforms with waveshaping
• VCO 2: Saw, Triangle and Random waveforms with waveshaping, Sync and Ring Mod
• Three Envelope Generator modes offer creative sound shaping
• Includes 80 factory presets along with 20 user locations
• Instantly save and recall your own sounds

Redesigned Monophonic Analogue Circuitry

Korg Monologue

A world of immersive soundsThe monologue contains monophonic analog synthesizer circuitry that builds on the circuitry of the minilogue. But that doesn’t mean that the monologue is simply a one-voice model of the minilogue. It’s a monophonic beast with stunning power that comes from a redesigned envelope section, modulation routing, and a filter with powerful low-end punch.

The structure is 2VCO, 1VCF, 1EG, 1VCA, and 1LFO. In addition to the same distinctive circuits as on the minilogue (such as the wave shaping that shapes the overtones of the oscillator, and a sync/ring switch), the filter section uses a two-pole filter to deliver aggressive sound. Newly featured is a drive circuit that adds overtones and distortion to the sound, letting you generate fat basses and sharp lead sounds to your heart's content. The LFO rate can be adjusted into an unprecedentedly ultra-high-speed range to generate crazy space-shattering sounds, or switched to one-shot mode to act, in a sense, as an additional envelope.

The keyboard section features the acclaimed slim keybed of the minilogue and the MS-20 mini. To make monologue a synth that any musician can immediately pick up and play, the keyboard covers the E–E range of notes - just like a guitar or bass.

Fully Programmable

Korg Monologue

A familiar workflowThe monologue excels further than analogue synths in its price range with the addition of 100 preset locations. Select a program for instant access to great sounds, ranging from thick basses and deep subs to stunning cutting leads and even percussive sequences.

Deep synthesis knowledge isn't required, with a very familiar workflow, just select a sound and tweak.

Built-in programs offer 80 preset sounds and sequences made by creative artists around the world including the legendary electronic artist Aphex Twin, and 20 user locations for saving custom sounds.

Highly-Evolved Motion Sequences

Korg Monologue

drastically enhancedThe step sequencer of the monologue has been drastically enhanced to create musical, complex rhythms that are easy to capture, see, and edit. Supporting both real-time recording with the capability ofoverdubbing and step recording that allows you to record just by pressing keys in the desired order, and you can also use the 16 physical buttons for fast editing or for improvisation.

The motion sequence function lets you record up to four knob movements to apply time-varying change to the sound, and you can record not only continuously changing values as on previous models, but also values with step-wise variation. As it's designed to let you create different sounds at each step, you can make unprecedented sequences, such as a sequence that generates a drum pattern from a single program.

A key trigger function is also included to let you play back a sequence whilst you hold down a key, and even transpose it. Another new function is slide, which can be used to produce smooth bass lines by specifying portamento for each step.

Freely Create Scales Using Microtuning

Korg Monologue

Aphex Twin ApprovedMusic has long been restricted to equal-temperament scales, nowadays very few machines support microtuning. The monologue has a set of factory tunings along with 12 user slots and is compatible with MIDI Tuning Standard 3Byte messages.

The power of microtonal music is noticable in the work of Aphex Twin, who has come onboard as advisor for the implementation and also to offer scales, sounds and sequences as part of the factory presets. All musicians are encouraged not just to use these Aphex Twin-created scales, but to create their own scales and explore their own world of frequencies too.

Oscilloscope Visualizes The Sound & Sequence

The OLED display will show the waveform in real time as you sculpt your sound. Visual feedback is both educational and entertaining, and represents a first on a hardware synthesizer. The monologue offers motion view that visualizes the value levels for the motion-sequenced parameters. “See” your motion sequence as it happens.

Korg Monologue

Battery-powered analogueAluminum and wood are inherited directly from the minilogue, but have been modified to a straight, direct design that offers the power of a monophonic instrument. The compact and light-weight body is only 1.7 kg / 3.78 lbs. resulting in a combination of toughness and portability. Unlike most analogue synthesizers in its class, the monologue can operate on batteries. Regardless if you're a hardware performer using numerous units, you won't need additional power supplies and installation space.

Korg Monologue

Sync With Audio SyncTogether with a 5-pin In/Out and USB MIDI, monologue features Audio Sync connectivity, allowing 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 analogue voice. Send clock over USB and use Audio Sync to chain monologue’s clock to other Audio Sync-equipped products.
