I've checked your Soundcloud, and I definitely think the Minilogue would fit perfectly to your music.

And yeah, the fact you can't save patch on the Microbrute is really annoying. Some people say it's more creative and entertaining to write down on a sheet of paper your patches, I personaly think you will waste your time and will not be more creative. The design is pretty bland, but this is really robust, knobs are solid and won't "move" - just like on the MS20 mini for instance -, the mini keys are okay, and the faders are not enough accurate.

Re: Korg monologue

I've been humming and hawing between a Monologue and BSII. Not having anywhere local where I could try them out, I've resorted to reading every review and comparison ever written on them . The Monologue looks more fun and straightforward. What it does, it does well. The BSII has much more in terms of overall features/versatility, all for a very similar price point. Both are tempting choices but it was hard to pick one over the other. I like the Monologue's smaller size, sound, and sequencer...but also like the full size keyboard, aftertouch, and other features of the BSII. Either one provides good value for money in my book, depending on what you're looking for of course. In my case I ultimately just gave up trying to decide... and ordered a Sub Phatty instead lol

I'm in a similar position, but wouldn't consider the Phatty...

Any reason? Fair enough of course, just curious

The phatty was the one I wanted in the first place, but figured I'd work my way up with something more affordable first. Not a bad idea, but ultimately it just made more sense to save and get the one I wanted.

If choosing between BSII or Monologue, is size a factor? Do you already have a midi keyboard for your DAW, or would this synth provide double duty? Some of the questions I've pondered

Re: Korg monologue

I just never clicked with the "moog" sound, so that's never been an option.
Tbh mine is more of a case of gear lust, I have an Analog4, so I would like to have something more "playable" as in with a keyboard and knobs.

Re: Korg monologue

Can you use the Analog Four‘s sequencer to send Midi CC? I mean you can do amazing things with the Monologue‘s mod sequencer, but the BS2 with its more capable synthesis and a proper sequencer that can send Midi CC seems like a pretty versatile combination...

Nope. Sends CV only.
