Korg Monotron

5 October 2012
  • Summary: Although it could be mistaken for a toy, the Korg Monotron is a real synthesizer with a real filter. What's not to like?
  • Pros: It's an analogue synth you can put in your pocket., It costs 59 quid., It has the same filter found in the MS10 and MS20 and you can process external signals with it.
  • Cons: At this price, none.

Korg Monotron Delay & Duo

12 September 2012
  • Summary: An instant source of UFO noises, space crickets and phasers that also doubles as a portable processor for other Monotrons. At the price, irresistible! This Monotron's ribbon can be quantised to a selection of scales, plus it has raunchy cross-modulation and that Korg MS-style analogue filter.
  • Pros: It's a battery-powered analogue synth you can take anywhere., Freaky sound effects from its digital delay., Looks great in UV light., Can process external gear through its delay and filter., Amazing value., A Monotron you can actually play., It's another battery-powered analogue synth you can take anywhere., It's also great value., Cross modulation mines new seams of weirdness., External signal input for the resonant filter.
  • Cons: Noisy., There was no room for a resonance control., It's a shame not to give it UV paint too.

Monotron DUO & Delay Review

Music Tech Magazine
14 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Korg’s latest Monotrons are immediately striking, even before they’ve uttered a noise. Housed in a tiny, lightweight case, the knobs and ribbon keyboard make them look like the new-born offspring of a larger synth. Although initial experiments using the built-in speaker confirmed what we suspected would be a tinny sound, once you plug the output into something bigger you realise these are actually a couple of beasts in disguise.
