A new sound pack, “Beats and Loops” for the KORG monologue by OscillatorSink is now available for free! 

This sound pack is a little different than most of the other packs available for the monologue. It’s actually more of a “loop pack” – 30 drum and percussion loops for the KORG monologue.

You can download the pack here. Drag and drop the preset data (.molgpreset) onto the monologue Sound Librarian icon to add it to your preset data window. You can view your preset data window by clicking Option > Open Preset Window.

Thanks to the monologue’s exceptional sequencer you can turn it into a drum machine, and using a monosynth that way can yield exciting, unique percussive loops and textures that you’d just never arrive at with conventional drum machines. Even though any of these patches can be played normally on the keyboard, the real fun comes when you start the sequencer. Each patch is designed to be a standalone loop which you can use out of the box. The mod lever is set to offer instant tweaking gratification, but playing with the other parameters can reveal all sorts of new expressions. You can also try enabling and disabling the sequencer steps, tweaking the motion sequence and changing the notes in the sequence. (please note that because some of the patches rely on tempo-synced LFOs, you may need to restart the sequence after changing patches). These loops also sound great with additional processing – try adding compression, saturation, delay, reverb etc. in your DAW or on your mixing desk to enhance and augment the loops.
