Maschine Packs: SonicXpansion Monarch Review


mpack_monarchMonarch is a modern expansion made of synth presets and drum synth presets.

It uses all of the free plugins you get as a Maschine user including MASSIVE, Prism, Monark, Mark I, Vintage Organs, and Retro Machines MK2.

As long as you have these plugins/players installed you should be good to go.

There are plenty of sounds, from smooth to aggressive, taking up practically no space since it uses no samples.

  1. Nice review! Copped this weeks ago and was working on a review with my homie Remo Williams. He’s made a few beats using it already. Love Sonic Expansion stuff!
