Hikari Instruments MONOS CV Noise Synthesizer

   (0 reviews)

MONOS CV from Hikari Instruments is a standalone instrument based around the dynamic interplay of a pitched noise generator and an oscillating low-pass filter. MONOS CV is an excellent effect processor as well as a source of drones, resonant pings, chaotic sound effects, and more.

Internal frequency dividers simultaneously offer six pitch variations of the noise generator’s base frequency, while the filter features two resonant modes: L (long), and S (short). The diverse sonic palette of the instrument can be accessed via intuitively changing positions of the sliders that control the parameters of the synthesizer.

The CV version of the instrument features control voltage inputs for noise pitch, filter frequency, as well as dedicated audio input allowing for processing of external sound sources. Under modulation, the instrument outputs a variety of animated sequences, ranging from mildly melodic patterns to outrageously chaotic textures.
