korg monologue

wow, what a great little bass synth! only monophonic (but you can fake duophony using the motion sequencer). very easy to come up with great sounds that are very "idm". plus full microtuning support (wow!!!!!).

the sequencer leaves a little bit to be desired as it is only 16 steps; it would be nice to have a way of chaining two patterns together other than using program changes.

that said, the motion sequencing is great as it lets you change up to four parameters for each step of the sequence.

also, the drive knob is basically useless as it doesn't sound that good imo. i would've preferred something like a chorus or delay.
