KORG monotron Portable Mini Synthesizer Analogue effects

Ultra-compact and portable analogue synthesizer with ribbon keyboard, integrated speaker, headphones output and battery-powered operation.

The popular Korg KAOSS products have proven the fun factor of a performance through simple finger movements. The monotron's keyboard has a range of 16 semitones with each key printed onto the device. The keyboard is a typical ribbon controller for pitch and resembles the pads from the Korg KAOSSILATOR and KAOSS pad mini and makes easy work of vibratos and glides.

The monotron is radically simple: One oscillator/VCO, a filter/VCF (both voltage controlled) and a low frequency oscillator (LFO). Each knob controls just one sound parameter to keep sound creation intuitive. Keep it simple! The monotron makes audio creativity extremely fun – through its analogue synthesis – and is ideal for newcomers to synthesizers and musicians that want to expand their palette of sounds.

The famous VCF circuit from the classic Korg MS-10 and MS-20 synthesizers is also featured in the monotron. For more than 30 years, this aggressive filter sound has been highly sought after. The cutoff knob controls the cutoff frequency of the low pass filter and the peak knob controls resonance. The filter is an essential component of all analogue synthesizers and counts towards a large part of their character and personality.

Just like the real MS-10, the monotron filter can also process external audio sources. The signal can be fed in directly before the VCF in the signal path via the input jack (AUX input). This allows you to connect a KAOSSILATOR, guitar or audio device and process it with the analogue filter.

Thanks to its integrated mini speaker, battery-powered operation and compact size, the monotron can be used and enjoyed anywhere and any time. Create sounds and ideas at home with your headphones on or connect the monotron to a mixer or PA system for live performances.
