Korg Monotron Portable Synthesizer Product Description

Korg offers every musician the ability to enjoy analogue synthesis with the all-new Monotron Analogue Ribbon Synthesizer. Powered by two aaa alkaline batteries, the compact Korg Monotron can be held in one hand. Although small enough to be easily carried, the Korg Monotron is packed with Korg's legendary analogue technology to generate thick and powerful sounds, plus a true analogue filter with audio input. The unique ribbon controller keyboard borrows from the enjoyment of performing with Korg's popular kaoss products. Simple finger motions can produce expressive effects such as vibrato and glide. When used in a band, the Monotron can harmonize with another instrument - or take centre stage for a Monotron solo. The Korg Monotron is made up of circuitry that is radically simple: one voltage-controlled oscillator, one voltage-controlled filter and one low frequency oscillator. The controls have been streamlined greatly - the panel contains only five knobs and one switch. Each knob controls a single function, so the process of sound creation is intuitive and instantly understandable. The lfo knob is even equipped with an led that blinks at the same rate as the lfo, offering a convenient visual cue. With this level of simplicity, anyone can easily enjoy the world of analogue synthesizers. The Korg Monotron uses the same highly acclaimed vcf circuit as Korg's classic ms-10 and ms-20 semi modular synthesizers. Originally released over 30 years ago, these instruments are still coveted today for their aggressive, dynamic filters. Just as on the original ms-20, the Monotron's filter can be "patched into," allowing any external audio source to be processed by the Monotron's filter. This provides a great way to connect a kaossilator, guitar or digital audio player to the monotron and enjoy tone-bending filter effects.
