Playing the Norand Mono as a "normal" synth (no talking)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"The power of the Norand Mono is in its incredible modulation and its per-step automation. But that ultimately doesn't mean much unless there's a good basic sound. So here are 16 custom sounds played live as you would with a "normal" synth, meaning just noodling with a single sound and a keyboard. I've added a little Valhalla delay and tried to balance the volume, but otherwise there's no other processing.

In reality you'd probably use these sounds as a starting point for a Norand sequence, changing filter, wave, LFO and envelope settings from step to step making for a much more dynamic performance. But I thought it might be useful to hear the Mono in a more raw form as a standard synth.
