The 1980s was an amazing decade for electronic music. Artists like Vince Clarke and bands like Depeche Mode have used synthesizers to great effect, creating hits such as Just Can’t Get Enough and People are People. What synthesizer could they have used, you might ask? It was none other than the MonoPoly synth, which was only available for 3 years before it was taken off the shelves and has become a true collector’s item. Today, we’re bringing this beauty to the 21st century with the Behringer MONOPOLY. This is an ultra-affordable and even more feature-packed homage to the original. Conjure up virtually any sound imaginable with incredible finesse and ease. The pure analog signal path is based on the authentic MonoPoly circuitry as well as VCO, VCF and VCA designs from the 80s. Take a walk in the shoes of legends or create your own timeless classics with the MONOPOLY.
True to the Original
Great care has been taken in engineering the MONOPOLY, including the true-to-the-original analog circuitry, 4 VCOs and incredibly flexible key modes for monophonic, duophonic and 4-voice polyphonic playstyles. This highly focused attention to detail is what gives the MONOPOLY its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability and allows you to recreate tones that are evocative of classic electronic music. It gives you the ability to cover a lot of amazing tones from super-fat bass, tasty leads – all the way to full-on dreamy ambience from the far reaches of your imagination.
Big, Fat Tones
The synthesizer tracks laid down in the ‘80s in progressive rock, wave and synth-pop have become classics and have inspired many other artists. The MONOPOLY lets you recreate all that magic – or design some incredible and original sounds that will make you a legend in your own right!
