Reviving a classic KORG analog synthesizer.
The iconic 4VCO synthesizer, reborn on iOS.
The Mono/Poly analog synthesizer appeared in 1981 at the same time as the acclaimed Polysix. Not only was it a fat-sounding four-VCO monophonic synthesizer, it featured a revolutionary design that allowed it to also be used as a four-voice polyphonic synthesizer, which helped cement its legendary status.
The long-awaited “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 range of detailed sound design. New functionality such as two multi-effects units and eight virtual patches are also provided. In addition, the seamless integration that you expect from KORG’s iOS apps will fit perfectly into your music making process. The Mono/Poly has been reborn for today’s world, bringing you a unique and legendary sound.
* Due to differences in CPU speed of iPads / iPhones, iPad 3rd gen/2/iPad mini/iPhone 4s are not supported, only iPad Air/iPhone 5s or later is recommended.
[ Features ]
• Deep 4VCO sound. A complete reproduction of the classic Mono/Poly
The Mono/Poly synthesizer featured four VCOs, a dedicated envelope generator for the VCF, and also sync and cross-modulation, earning it a reputation for its detailed sound-shaping potential and its distinctive character.
• Powerful virtual patches, and the latest presets to catch the scene
Eight virtual patches provide the ultimate expansion of the Mono/Poly’s distinctive sound-design potential. Two multi-effect units are also provided, allowing you to create complex and broad-ranging sounds with complete freedom.
• Quick access to all panels
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.
• Produce music in conjunction with KORG Gadget
iMono/Poly can be used in conjunction with “KORG Gadget,” the music production DAW app that has won numerous prizes within Japan and around the world. When you install both apps, iMono/Poly appears as the “Montpellier” gadget within KORG Gadget.

Ratings and Reviews
Best poly on App Store?
I think so, but I wish Korg would play nice with the other devs and add AUv3. It’s the future of iOS music and, while I love gadget, they really should just add AU capability so I can easily incorporate it into other apps without having to painfully fix midi routing and pull up the right preset each time I load a project.
ADD AUv3 or face the wrath of my downgraded review! It’s a 5 star synth, but I give Korg a 3/5 for their lack of respect for common good.
I already own a *lot* of synth apps, including most of Korgs, but this one I couldn't say no to...and I'm glad I didn't. Very inspirational to play and sounds really great.
This would be 5 stars if I could access my user patches within Gadget's companion device Montpellier...hopefully a quick patch fixes this oversight...
Would also be killer if I could have a mod destination for the VCO Mod Type...I love switching between these but would be great to put an LFO to that...
Another great sounding and feature-rich synth app from Korg. You also won't be disappointed by this one. I am glad i added this one to my Korg collection of iOS synths. They all sound great and all so very unique. This is another instant classic.
MIDI learn was added in the last update which i had been hoping for. So i upgraded my previous 4 star rating to a full five stars. Thanks Korg!
