ICONIC MONO SYNTH

  • Legendary mono basses and leads perfect for any style
  • Unrivalled organic analog sound and feel
  • Easy to use controls accelerate creative flow

KING ANALOG

MONARK delivers the sound of the king of analog monosynths. Capturing every nuance in spectacular detail, this is the holy grail of analog modeling.

YOUR MAJESTY

MONARK captures the pure organic sound of the undisputed king of monophonic analog synthesizers. Years of meticulous research capture every nuance of the synth at the center of four decades of popular music. The first choice for bass and lead sounds from electronic and hip hop to indie rock and beyond, no other synth comes close to this combination of power, richness, and musical tone. Delivering the true sound of a synth as famous as the artists who used it, MONARK is the holy grail of analog modeling.

MONARK runs in REAKTOR 5 or the free REAKTOR PLAYER, and is optimized to integrate perfectly with the entire MASCHINE family.

DEEP DSP

MONARK is a virtual synth with a dynamic, analog heart – designed to be played one note at a time to truly savor its bold, fat tone. Every aspect of the complex interaction of complex analog circuits to the behavior of the filter when overloaded was meticulously studied and recreated using cutting-edge DSP technology.

MONARK features super-snappy envelopes, making stabbing melodic lines and punchy electronic drum sounds easy to create. MONARK’s advanced architecture even reproduces the the sound of wiring the headphone output into the VCF input, and analog oscillator and filter drift, delivering a sound so lively, fat, and warm you won’t believe it’s software – all built within the powerful REAKTOR framework.

THE BEST – SIMPLY

Master MONARK’s unbelievable power in record time. Its simple layout consists of three oscillators, a smooth filter and amp section, and essential fine tuning, modulation, and glide controls. From thundering basses to thick, singing leads, synthesis doesn’t get any easier than this. MONARK’s signature tone instantly enriches tracks with a natural character missing from most other synths – delivered with incredible ease of use and all the convenience of software.

MAKING THE PILGRIMAGE

MONARK was created using the low-level modular DSP framework of REAKTOR CORE and takes advantage of Zero-Delay Feedback technology as formulated by its creator, Native Instruments' Vadim Zavalishin. Using mathematical prediction, ZDF technology eliminates the sample delay normally produced when trying to digitally model analog circuits involving feedback, such as a resonant filter.

Because it’s impossible to recreate complex analog circuits with mathematics alone, MONARK’s engineers relied on their ears to make the final adjustments to its sound. Combining advanced scientific research with refined human perception and a deep understanding of synthesis, MONARK is not only the most accurate virtual analog synth available, but a testament to Native Instruments’ commitment to leading software instrument design into the future.
