Novation Circuit Mono Station £479
Full Review: FM320
The combination of a solid analogue sound engine, a uniquely powerful sequencer and a competitive price point make the Circuit Mono Station a must-try synth.
Moog Mother-32 | £499 Review FM302 It can be a standalone synth, or you can plug it into any number of gadgets to create a modular monster. With a Mother-32 under your arm, the world is your oyster! Waldorf Pulse 2 | £406 Review FM273 Being a sound module without a keyboard, it’s not quite a ‘go anywhere’ synth. But for our money this is the most power you’ll find in a small package for the price.
Korg Volca FM | £129 Review FM305 A great-sounding box of classic FM sounds. It might lack the polyphony of the DX7 but, apart from that, the sound is bang on. Its motion sequencing is seriously powerful too.
Korg Monologue | £299 Review FM312 Cheap and cheerful, but a powerful piece of kit, and with a surprising amount of flexibility given its limited envelope section.
