Best Monark tutorial I have found
This is quite good tbh. One complaint though, Sound from vst were too loud compared to instructor voice. Other than that, top notch value

Very well explained.
I've already seen previous videos from this instructor and this one is as helpful and well explained as the others. He takes time. Great.

A pretty thorough introduction to Monark, covering subtractive synth in general and some of the specific Minimoog emulations. I particularly liked how, unlike some other videos on this site, it went beyond describing the UI and also covered how to create various sounds with Monark. I feel that I've got a good handle on it now.
