Monomate is a monophonic synth designed to create retro sounding basslines and shrill leads. Version 2 has been updated on several fronts. The filter parameters have been modified, and a filter booster has been added to allow much louder low pass results. There are also now twice as many presets.

I must say that this is a deceptive little VST. You wouldn't think this thing with so few knobs could make such a wide variety of sounds, but it does. Are they always useful? Not all the time. This is obviously a synth made for IDM and general experimentation if used in other electronic genre's. My only complaints are that there is evidently a filter keytracking that is not controllable...so sometimes you may have a REALLY nice sounding low key but pushing a high key won't sound ANYTHING like the low key...I also think that filter is a bit misleading as it sounds closer to an FM effect. Another problem I run into with this VST is that if you have the filter knob on anywhere except at 100%, you can hear the original sound 'buzzing' in the background, which makes the sound almost...glitchy...like it's made of a sample and it wasn't trimmed right before the loop.

Anyway, I keep this one around and do get some use out of it sometimes. With effects stacked on it, it can get pretty nasty. The random knob is REALLY nice and it can suprise you with some of the sounds it makes.

It's a nice synth, very simple and easy on the CPU, but it's obviously not for everyone. Give it a go if you're into something different.Read more
