SyncKontrol for Monotribe

You can sync a Korg Monotribe with another Monotribe. With the SyncKontrol iPhone app you can sync a Monotribe with an iPad and/or wirelessly with Ableton Live (or any DAW). I still can’t get over the fact you can get a fully analog groovebox for about $230. I hope these sell like crazy so Korg keeps on making analog synths and drum machines.

“SyncKontrol offers owners of Korg’s monotribe Analogue Ribbon Station precise tempo control, plus the ability to sync their monotribe to WIST (Wireless sync) enabled apps! SyncKontrol allows you to control the tempo and start/pause of the monotribe Analogue Ribbon Station via the audio output of your iPhone. The app also offers Tap Tempo, a Swing function, and WIST (Wireless Sync-Start Technology) to sync monotribe to WIST-enabled apps such as Korg’s iMS20, iElectribe and iElectribe Gorillaz(tm) Edition. In addition, this application receives sync from Mac based DAW software by receiving MIDI clock and play/stop commands via Wireless Network MIDI.”

    1. Honestly I do far more when I am limited. Just think how far the original 303, 808 and effects got people. Give me gigabytes of sample libraries and I am lost.

  3. I have had my monotribe for about 24 hours now and limitation is not a word I would use to describe this. The sequencer is more versatile than one would think when using the flux and active track buttons, and the sounds are have more nuance fidelity than any synth in this price range. So Playable, deep and constant audio surprise!
