WNAMM04: Mighty Monomachine Comes To Anaheim
Proverb says - MonoMachine speak with with six voices

We’ve been teased by rare sightings of the MonoMachine since last years NAMM, but sadly unable to hear it. Just to recap, the MonoMachine is the latest (and now in production) offering from Elektron, the folks who brought us the SidStation and fabulous Machine Drum (see our review). The new MonoMachine is based on a similar to the MachineDrum in that it has a number of machines, these are essentially separate synth engines that will generate sounds in a certain way (Super Wave, SID, DigiPro, FM+ and VO). The Mono is six voices with 18 syncable LFOs, a sixt part synthesis and effects sequencer. There’s additional on board DSP for an impressive effects engine, 6 delay engines and another 6 tracks of MIDI sequencer. Things being done in the particular Elektron way results in som prett incredible sounds. We were invited up to the MonoMachines, penthouse suite for an intimate demo of what it can do – needless to say we were all very impressed with the size and depth of the sound and the complexity of modulation and sequencing of parameters. I’m surprised that people in the neighbouring rooms weren’t complaining about the noise – perhaps they were fans of fat electronic music….
