Big, Fat Tones
The synth tracks of the ’80s have inspired endless artists to date. With the MONOPOLY, you’re able to recreate all that magic, and design incredible new sounds as well!
A Timeless Classic
Just like its predecessor, the MONOPOLY comes with four VCOs, each with four switchable waveshapes including triangle, reverse sawtooth, pulse width modulation, and pulse width. Each VCOs octave, level, and tuning can each be adjusted separately with their respective knobs. Set the VCO to PWM mode and route the signal to one of two analog LFOs again with four selectable waveforms and adjustable frequency for advanced sound creation. Then, blend the VCOs with different waveshapes together and add a bit of cross-modulation. Allowing you to get some piercing leads and fat bass notes that will give your listeners goosebumps!
Sculpting a Masterpiece
Additionally, the MONOPOLY includes both a VCF and VCA each with its own ADSR. So you can adjust the shape of the envelope and create notes that are either short and percussive or long and atmospheric. You can even add in some white noise with the Noise knob. Dramatically spicing up your waveforms and giving you complete control over your sounds.
Sweep the Cutoff knob on the VCF from left to right and listen as your sounds transform from a low rumble to a sizzling crescendo. Perfect for creating the right atmosphere in your next cyberpunk epic.
The Keys Please
Furthermore, MONOPOLY has 37 semi-weighted velocity-sensitive keys. As well as pitch bend and modulation wheel for modifying your sounds even further.
Key Assign Mode
With the Key Assign Mode section you can select how the MONOPOLY operates, whether it’s in Unison mode, which plays all four VCOs at once when a key is pressed, Polyphonic mode or Unison/Share mode which shares the VCOs according to the number of notes played. There’s also a Chord Memory mode for creating complex harmonies with a single key press. Start off in Poly mode, press the hold button, play your chord and hit the Chord Memory button. Now you’ll be able to play that chord with a single key. Combine all these modes in your next production and you’re on your way to having a truly amazing song that will really get the crowd moving.
Controls and Connectivity
Finally, if you want the numbers, the MONOPOLY has a whopping 62 knobs and buttons all laid out on a tiltable front panel, There’s also multiple inputs and outputs for controlling filter cutoff, oscillator pitch, and CV/GATE as well as MIDI.
