folks_ this synth brings home the cows with the best price/performance ratio out there. how can you resist this synth @ 400$? while people are out there selling arp odysseys and ms 20s for a grand? if you are here reading this, i tell you, the secret cult of this synth is not bogus hype. the users of this synth love it for a reason. if you have grand to toss, buy this, then with the other 600$, but lots of wierd paia or blacet or frostwave stuff, and patch it into that rear panel. definitely build some voltage controllers out of alarm clocks or something and make this thing sound like a retarded pig being tied down. fire a nasty drum loop through the trigger inputs and make it stutter. this synth is begging to be expanded into a poor mans modular analog atrosity! download the service manual and f**k this little brat up. add some new inputs on the back. many great sounds in there already, but this synth wants to go where no man has gone before, and can if you have the imagination.

long live cheap, brilliant korg stuff.

MOst people use the MONOpoly for DANCE, and esp bass.

I had a monopoly, some 7 years ago... its a beast. the sounds are so dirty, fat, organic and REALLLY RAW. Try using the monopoly for some progressive rock, or hard rock stuffs. you make your band sounds cool. Some of Van Halen's old records uses the MONOPOLY. (im not too sure, but it sounds certainly like it!)

how i wish i can get my monopoly back..

and if you have one, keep it. the synth doesnt rust that badly... just take care of the wood.

I have been playing guitar for about two years. A few months ago I finally decided to merge my love with dance/industrial/electronic music with my growing talents. At that time I researched several synths and I have ended up with a very diverse collection. I just got the monopoly today and I can already tell you, I dont think this synth will ever leave my studio. It has great analog " grit " which has to be due to the four analog vco's . All of my other vintage gear has dco's and there is no comparision. My esq1 sounds dark, my k3 chimey, matrix-6r/1000 combo big but not phat. This guy sound dark, medium phatness which is nice, i bet it wont over power the mix. The sounds seem to be very daft punk'ish, at least that is what it puts me in mind of. Being able to latch the arp, and then play around with the res, filter frequency, portamento, and other knobs is simply brilliant. Also this thing has the best sounding sync I have heard with all four oscs jamming in unison. Simply a great piece of kit, not overated at all.

superbe synthesizer, good controll possibilitis in every aspect, great tone, nice filter, you can set up the whole range of sounds as you can expect from an analogue synth. good arpegiator, chord memory, effect section (sync and x-mod) witch i really like, real good performing synthesizer
