How would you folks classify the Monologue filter?
I know people prefer it to the Minilogue's, but what is it most similar to?
How different to the A4/AK filters is it?
I'm seeking something for AK's CV track, and would use Monologue via Kenton Pro CV-MIDI converter.
I like the idea of using Monologue's motion sequence lanes as modulators only, with notes sequenced by AK, with 64 steps, modulus, trig conditions...
But a Therapsid MKII wouldn't cost much more and has great modulation (3x LFO and/or CV aux input) options with multiple destinations. A multi-mode filter and a very different sound.
TherapsidMkII strengths: 3 OSCs, plenty of CV inputs, multimode filter, a modulatable ARP of its own. Small module footprint. Can take 2nd SID chip for wild detuned stereo sound. 3 ADSRs, ring mod option on each OSC, sync independent from ring mod, per OSC glide, 3 LFOs and each can be substituted for CV input (override). Multiple destinations per LFO or CV input. Patch randomizer.
Weakness: No per OSC level aside from per OSC envelopes. More limited for dialing in softer sounds.
Monologue strengths: 4 motion sequence lanes for modulation - can almost work like sound locks with the white noise wave selector, motion sequence smoothing (like parameter slides). With Kenton CV to MIDI converter I'd be able to send it 2 additional CV LFOs. Ends up with more modulation than TherapsidMkII, but less total destinations.
Weaknesses: requires $120-$150 CV to MIDI converter. No multi-mode filter. KB version only. Only one EG and it is limited. No square/pulse on OSC 2.
