My initial reaction was a bit “meh”, however the more I hear the more I like it. I hardly need another monosynth BUT it does have some very nice features, OD, microtonal, motionseq, audio rate lfo. A bit of cv/gate action would be great though :slight_smile:


#22

Like the black Monologue.

I even like the straight wedge shape more than the curved panel found on the Minilogue.


#23

There’s a first demo online here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEM7E980H-k


#24

This would go well with my recently aquired TR-09 and TB-03…


#25

The demos do sound pretty good although I can’t seem to find a release date. Not that I’m interested or anything :wink:


#26

priced below $300
The sounds on this one remind me a lot of the shruthi!

I’m still thinking about getting a minilogue…


#27

That sweetwater hands-on made me realize how small this Monologue is!

Totally Microbrute size, longer, better (not ideal) keys.

Edit: Launch Jan. 9 2017 FYI

i think it’s kind of cute.

Bit of a toy compared to DeepMind.

I don’t get the E-E thing with the keyboard. I mean, it’s different, but is it better? The sounds out of this thing are interesting, but not something I’d play in a band if I was a bass player. You quite often see bass players have a moog on a stand, and I don’t see the monologue change that anytime soon. Most of the sounds seem to go towards interesting leads anyways.


#31

It’s tiny …! And indeed kind of cute. I like the blue and the red ones … @ t2k: like the still missing SH-01?


#32

Seems weird to go smaller rather than bigger to me. Plenty of monosynths about.


#33

@janniz I’d get a Boutique SH-01 in a heartbeat. In terms of colors, it’s a fun comparison indeed, but the filter on this thing sounds rather different to me. :slight_smile:


#34

Blessed by the hand of Mr Aphex Twin himself no less… That alone will sell a bunch of 'em.


#35

Yeah, but he did an EP on a Cheetah MS800 and people started digging those out of the bin to sell lol


#36

Well, Richard D. James has done interesting things with microtuning in his tracks, so it does make some kind of sense.


#37

I’ve been looking for an MS800 (for purely nostalgic reasons) for a few years now but I am not paying £400 for one :-/


#38

I’ve had a good listen to the demos and I have to admit I really like it. I hardly need another monosynth but…


#39

Anyone got one? Enjoying it? Pros? Cons?


#40

It’s very good, much more powerful than I imagined. Cons - wish it was 4 / 8 voice poly :slight_smile:
