"Unique take on analog synthesis

Under the hood, Mono hosts a uniquely designed analog synthesis engine. Discover a wide palette of sounds in a minimalistic, two oscillator, one filter set-up.

Oscillator block

From soothing detuned sinewave to heavily modulated sawtooth, Mono’s sound source is versatile and full of character.

- Thru-zero analog frequency modulation
- Continuously variable waveform
- Fine-grained detune control
- Hard-Sync

Filter block

Designed with an emphasis on sound-character and originality, mono filter let you sculpts the oscillators output in every way possible. A unique filter for a unique synthesizer.

- 3-Pole State-Variable Filter
- Continuously variable BP-LP-HP output
- Main enveloppe amount control & Keyboard follow

A World of Modulations

Mono introduces contextual modulation, a unique modulation system that gives you full control over every parameters. Each have their own envelope and audio-frequency modulator. By simply touching a knob to select the underlying parameter, unleash Mono’s full creative potential.

Feature-rich sequencer

From simple note sequence to complex ratcheted phrase with parameter automations, Mono’s sequencer does it all, with a straight-forward user-friendly interface.
