Monark, as predicted, appears to be a virtual analog created in (and running with) Reaktor. From an architecture standpoint, it looks very similar to the Minimoog.
Battery 4 is apparently a ground-up redesign, although in the format familiar to previous Battery users. The new version includes a color-coding system for easy layout, new effects, and new drag and drop features.
Komplete 9 is NI's latest "everything" collection and includes both Battery 4 and Monark, as well as all the other recent NI sound library/plug-in releases.
