"sorry for the shakiness of the video, there was quite a long line for this one and nowhere to set up a tripod! the place was packed!
I was lucky enough to try out the new Korg Monologue this weekend. Main Drag Music hosted their annual Synth Expo at their store in Williamsburg Brooklyn, and this new, soon to be released synth made my must try list. An analog synth that can run on batteries? I had to hear it for myself. My time with the Monologue was limited unfortunately, as the building was packed and there was quite a line to try it. Luckily the folks over at Main Drag were gracious enough to allow me to plug in to get straight line audio, so you can get your own first impressions. I went to a blank user preset, wrote a quick little sequence, and got to work trying out some of the parameters. Its a fun synth to play; I am getting a little tired of the tiny Korg keys, and do miss the Minilogues delay, but it really did have a nice big strong presence that will cut through a mix for sure."
