" Very cool" - SPKL

Audiofanzine
25 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I use it for a few months, it really has a particular sound and it's very good to have on hand. Only flaws, it is quite fragile, and jack output produces a small breath. Apparently the problem is repairable breath for a small DIY breath mainly from mini amp that contains the Monotron. But at this price point, it passes.

" A machine that has the potential" - McCalloe

Audiofanzine
13 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I use it for 3-4 months, it satisfies me completely, knowing that I had a € 11 cheaper than the base price is 30 €. I do had never touched before purchasing, just watched videos. The only downside is that the speaker saturates too easily for my taste. However, its price / quality ratio seems quite correct. Special mention for the opening of the ...

" simple and effective" - Yannick Baguet

Audiofanzine
24 July 2013
  • Excerpt: This is my first analog synth and for the price, this is the bomb. I use it mostly in the context of experimental music and live for its simplicity makes it very instinctive, no brainer, you do what you feel "feels". It's a toy, but a toy big sound. Next time I buy three ...

Audiofanzine
11 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I've had a year, I use very often, with his classmates Monotron Duo and Monotron, but sometimes also in the Microkorg or Monotribe. I make small loops that I live up in my DAW, or I'm having fun, live it's pretty cool to make a sound like that from the hard, risky but also ... I'll buy two. The value for money is go...

12 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I use it for two days intensively by passing all sorts of things inside: sample of pace, pad, organ, saw filtered or not. Mode it leaves a big synth sound, but we very quickly around. The part is really too light and limit exploitable. Precision potentiometers makes it very difficult to set a value and find it later (espe...

" The thing that kills ;-)" - BorisGodounov

Audiofanzine
3 April 2013
  • Excerpt: For two months, I use it occasionally, much to amuse me a bit to write, even on 9 ratings we find cool stuff when you have two minutes to connect, and 30s. to warm it. Because yes, this stuff looks like a mobile phone is a true analog synth with components that, like their illustrious ancestors, must heat to reach their nominal operating...

" big sound and hack cosmic" - djama

Audiofanzine
10 February 2013
  • Excerpt: At this price it is impossible to miss. For me the best of the 3 monotron. Good, to love and grind should not expect too much precision for sure. But are many psychopaths out super melodies. And it is an instrument of the moment. With his breath, it can be sucks to register. Finally, I do, I do not mind (but not super jsuis deman...

Korg Monotron

soundonsound.com
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

soundonsound.com
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.
