Product Description

Go Anywhere Analog: That was the theme behind the remarkable battery-powered and palm-sized analog synthesizer that Korg dubbed the monotron. Now the powerful and fun-to-play monotron is joined by two new siblings. Each is played from a ribbon controller keyboard with newly added features. The monotron's simple operation and ease of use (5 knobs and 1 switch) is alive and well, inviting hours of enjoyment and musical exploration. Features include: * Two analog oscillators (VCO) with individual tunings * Edgy X-MOD circuit borrowed from Korg's classic Mono/Poly * Ribbon controller keyboard with Scale Select * Original Analog (VCF) Filter taken from the classic MS-10 & MS-20 * Aux input jack lets you apply filter to any audio source * Built-in speaker and battery power for Go Anywhere Analog sound * Headphone jack for private use

Great Synth for Sample Sound Design

The Korg Monotron Duo is a super fun synth and for the money it sounds fantastic. The controls are limited but what really comes across here is the combination of Korg's legendary MS20 filter with the x-mod from their MonoPoly synth. The oscillators are fixed to square waveforms but so much sonic territory is covered with the interplay of their respective independent pitch setting and the x-mod control. I used this to program a custom sample library and found a great range of beefy analog tones that I have been going to for inspiration. I didn't use the Monotron Duo in this way but it does have a filter-in which could be fun for applying the MS20 filter to external sounds. I would say that it is limited as a straight performance piece but the ability to create samples for use in a DAW or hardware sampler is really unmatched for analog tones at this price point.
