The original MonoPoly from 1981 was in production for only three years. We suspect the Behringer version will be around for a lot longer. It features the original layout which was a firm favorite for the many artists and bands that used it.
Here's the first video from Behringer showcasing what this synthesizer can do:
All audio recorded with UMC1820. Some of the solo tracks on demos used the TC Electronic BBD Gauss Tape Echo and Hall Of Fame Reverb pedals.
MonoPoly Main Features
- Fully analog signal path
