KORG's iconic Mono/Poly synthesizer revived for iOS

The new app completely reproduces all the features of the original Mono/Poly and can be used in conjunction with KORG Gadget.

KORG’s 4VCO monophonic synthesizer has been revived for iPhone and iPad.

You can now get your hands on a digital version of the iconic synth – called the iMono/Poly – which was first released in 1981, for a mere £19.99.

Not only was the Mono/Poly a fat-sounding four-VCO monophonic synthesizer, it featured a revolutionary design at the time that allowed it to also be used as a four-voice polyphonic synthesizer, which helped cement its legendary status.

The long-awaited iMono/Poly app completely reproduces all the features of the original Mono/Poly. Four VCOs and a rich array of modulation allow a wide range of detailed sound design. New functionality such as two multi-effects units and eight virtual patches are also provided.

The synth also comes with a dedicated envelope generator for the VCF, and also sync and cross-modulation. Eight virtual patches provide the ultimate expansion of the Mono/Poly’s distinctive sound-design potential. Two multi-effect units are also provided, allowing you to create complex and broad-ranging sounds with complete freedom.

Although iMono/Poly provides a vast number of parameters, it’s designed with a screen structure that provides quick and seamless access to all of them. With a single tap, you can rotate between the main synth and key assign screen and the virtual patch and effect screen. There’s no need to open individual screens for specific functions, or to move back and forth between them.

The new app can be used in conjunction with KORG Gadget, the music production DAW app that has won numerous prizes within Japan and around the world. When you install both apps, iMono/Poly appears as the “Montpellier” gadget within KORG Gadget.
