Korg Monopoly : AlanForPresident's user review
"classic piece of gear from korg"
The Korg Monopoly is a vintage piece of great that will really give your music that vintage sound. It really wont get more vintage than this. There are a lot of vintage synths that are surfacing lately especially with the rise of electronic music. This is one that I have searched for, and for a long time. I couldn’t find any one who was selling it for a good price. Then I was at a music store and they guy said he could get me one from one of his other stores but I didn’t like the price he through at me. I ended up still paying for it anyways just because I knew that I would love it. This keyboard was way before my time when it was created and it was great to get to mess with it now. Just the overall experience with the Korg Monopoly has really pulled some creativity out of me that I didn't know that I had.
Its not hard to use, but you have to keep in mind that with these old vintage machines there really arent presets per say. Its more of just dial up a type of instrument or sound and start turning knobs. The pitch wheel on the Korg Mono Poly is great, I really didn’t expect it to have such a well built pitch wheel. I guess this is the type of stuff Korg put out way back then and it gave them the reputation they have today.
sounds are awesome
I love using it, I really didn’t have room for it anymore so its in one of my band members basement so when I go over there to record I have a chance to mess with it. I have really been into purchasing old vintage gear over the last 5 years or so. Vintage gear will rise back to the for front.
