1. Monark view B Overview (Part II)

Welcome to part II of our two-part Monark overview. In this video, I cover the functionality of all of the controls on the back panel.

The controls on Panel B are used to fine-tune various aspects of Monark. Since Monark was created to be as faithful a re-creation of the Minimoog Model D as possible, it has several features that may be undesirable in certain instances, such as oscillator drift, and imperfect key-tracking. Panel B allows us to reduce or remove these inherited quirks if we so choose.

Panel B has an interesting design, in that the controls are not recalled by snapshot or preset. Instead, there are three ‘Settings’ that can be loaded – these load values for each available control on the panel. Each preset can then recall one of these scenes – this means by editing one snapshot, you will be changing the values for every preset that uses the same ‘Setting’.

The three factory ‘Settings’ can be recalled at any time using the ‘RESET’ button. This allows you to fool around with Panel B without irrevocably editing all of your snapshots.

2. Monark view A Overview (Part I)

Welcome to part I of our two-part Monark overview. In this video, I cover the functionality of all of the controls on the front panel.

Monark is an incredibly detailed analog-modeling synth from Native Instruments.

Even though Monark is in many ways a very standard subtractive synth, some of the controls can be a little confusing at first. Much of the interface is designed to match the Minimoog Model D, the synth that Monark is emulating.

This leads to some design decisions that are a little odd by today’s standards – such as the use of an ADSD envelope, as opposed to the more standard ADSR, and having two separate key-tracking buttons for the filter. Once you are used to the way things are set up though, Monark is extremely easy to use and has great sound!

This video covers all of the ‘standard’ functionalities of Monark – oscillators, filters, envelopes and the modulation settings. In part II, we will look at the back panel, and show how we can use the controls there to fine-tune control of Monark.

3. A Brief Overview of Monark

Native Instrument’s latest Reaktor synth, Monark, is a powerful emulation of the Minimoog. This video provides an overview of the feature packed synthesizer, and demonstrates some of its amazing sounds!

This video provides a brief overview of Native Instrument’s latest synthesizer, Monark. Based on years of research, Native Instrument’s new Reaktor-based synth is a convincing reproduction of the classic Minimoog. The Minimoog, which was first released in 1970, is an all-analog, monophonic, hardware synth that has been made famous by a countless number of musicians.

Native Instruments really stepped up their game with this synth, and their claim that the Monark is the holy grail of analog modeling may in fact be true. Native Instruments provided the Monark synth with a high sample rate of 88200 Hz, and a B-Panel which allows you to recreate and tweak some of the imperfections that helped make the original Minimoog famous. The Monark synth is a beast. Add it to your soft-synth arsenal, and be on your way to creating the most realistic emulated Minimoog sounds ever!
