KORG has announced that the iMono/Poly is now available and there is a limited time sale (33% off / $19.99) until Saturday the 30th of September. KORG Gadget for iOS also works with iMono/Poly, as Montpellier, with the now available v3.3 update.
The Mono/Poly analog synthesizer, which first appeared in 1981, is considered to be one of the all time legendary KORG analog synthesizers. The "KORG iMono/Poly" iPad/iPhone app completely reproduces all features of the original Mono/Poly. Four VCOs and a rich array of modulation allow a wide scope of detailed sound design. New functionality such as two multi-effects units and eight virtual patches are also provided.
In addition, 128 of the latest preset sounds that fully exploit the unique functions of iMono/Poly are built in. A sound bank containing an additional 128 sounds is also available as an in-app purchase.
Although iMono/Poly provides a vast number of parameters, it's designed with a screen structure that provides quick and seamless access to all of them. With a single tap, you can rotate between the main synth & key assign screen and the virtual patch & effect screen*). There's no need to open individual screens for specific functions, or to move back and forth between them.
