Mono

Fully-featured analog synthesizer

All analog signal path

Endless modulations

Powerfull sequencer

Creative randomizer

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.

All the audio demo are single patterns, no layering.

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. Each of Mono's 2048 patterns stores a patch (or preset) with all modulation parameters, as well as a 64-step sequencence with automation events !

Play-Record-Edit

Easily record and edit patterns, either with direct control or external keyboard. Get immediate visual feedback of what’s happening, without menu-diving.

Sequence anything

Note trigs, parameter automations, Mod note, ratchet ... Mono sequencer allows the user to sequencer everything step by step without limitations

Powerful Undo-Redo

Never restrain your creativity by fear of loosing previous work. Mono’s undo-redo allows for up to 1024 actions to be Undoed.

Large onboard memory

Mono stores up to 32 projects, each with 64 patterns with patch memory. Each 64-steps pattern stores a patch with all modulations, and up to 3200 automation events.
