Overview

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.

Comments about Korg monologue Monophonic Analog Synthesizer:

I work with an Experimental Industrial Psych-rock Electronic Acoustic Punk Ambient Noise group called The Hadron Big Bangers, so you can kind of see how I'd be using this little puppy.
Inexpensive, with an outexpensive sound. You buy this, you like it, and you never "trade" it in or sell it which most of us do with gear, and most of us always regret. Have fun.

Perfect for a bass player

By Frank Da Tank

from I.E.

See all my reviews

Comments about Korg monologue Monophonic Analog Synthesizer:

I bought this so I can do bass synth lines. As a bass player, I like the design elements such as matching the keyboard range to a 4 string bass guitar, slim keys and ease of use. It doesn't offer as many features as a Novation Bass Station II but for about $80 less, an arguably more direct interface and a smaller, lighter form factor, it is far easier for me to make patches and to fit this in to my bands. The unit is small enough to sit on a music stand shelf so I can just keep it nearby while I play my primary instrument and just use an A/B switch to jump to synth bass.

The decision to not include a power supply and to use a non Boss/Roland tip is a minor inconvenience which prevents me from powering this synth from my pedalboard but takes little away from my enjoyment of this instrument.

The hype is real!

By Ryno Project

from Pearland, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Korg monologue Monophonic Analog Synthesizer:

After watching a lot of reviews for the monologue I decided to pre-order one. When I got it, I started playing with it and I gotta say, they pretty much nailed it!! Only thing is that it only came with 50 presets with 50 user presets instead 80 presets with 20 user presets. Pretty sure the update will fix that.

One of my Favorite Synths

By Synthead

from New York

Comments about Korg monologue Monophonic Analog Synthesizer:

I have a bunch of high end synths and I love this more than most.
Great for jamming, portability, and sound design/ production.
The sequencer has given birth to some of the best tracks I've made lately.

Comments about Korg monologue Monophonic Analog Synthesizer:

This thing has changed my musical life. I took a big interest in analog synths a few years ago and finally got this little guy as one of my own and it has started an addiction. I've since purchased a few vintage synths from the Sequential Circuits family, but this thing is what made me see the possibilities. I bought it and the same day, I used it to lay down a lead on one of my band's new tracks. It MADE the song.

If you're a guitarist who is bored of the norms in rock music, this thing will make you think out of the box.

It'll also make you want to buy more synths, and probably some expensive polyphonic synths... have your wallet ready.
