My brother bought me a Korg Monotron Delay. It was on backorder for a good 6 weeks. It arrived yesterday thanks Al! This is what it sounds like (in my hands).

“A good delay was an essential part of the classic analog synthesizer sound. More often than not, that delay came from a tape-style echo machine until affordable digital delays were created. The monotron DELAY is an analog synthesizer optimized for sound effects. In addition to its analog oscillator, filter, and LFO, it also provides a Space Delay that’s indispensable for swooping, cosmic sounds. The monotron DELAY even reproduces the pitch changes that occur when you vary the delay time, just as though you were using an analog tape echo. As with the filter, the delay effect can be added to any external sound via the Aux In jack. This fat and warm delay will add an authentic edge to your analog sounds!” – Korg.com

New Monotrons

Two words: stocking stuffers. I’ll take the Delay thanks.

“The powerful and fun-to-play monotron analog synthesizer has been joined by two siblings. The Dual Oscillator monotron DUO offers X-MOD capabilities for generating even more extreme sounds. The monotron DELAY features a Space Delay that can produce intense, analog-like echo effects.” – korg.com

Monotron Hacking

Collin’s Lab: Monotron Hacking from MAKE magazine on Vimeo.

I found Korg Monotron’s to be the perfect priced gift for my music friends. So far I’ve given two of these little guys away.

“The Monotron mini analog synthesizer was made to be hacked – learn how to add your own control-voltage inputs and check out some sample synthing played via strobe light.” – Make Magazine

Monotron Mods

Awesome modifications of Korgs tiny Monotron synthesizer. My favorite is the Monodular. What’s your pick?

“Although small enough to hold in one hand, the amazing monotron delivers ginormous and dazzling sounds.” – korg.com
