Just how small can a synthesizer get? If you're looking for an answer to that question, you've come to the right place. The Korg Monotron series are so compact, you could put one in your pocket in a pinch. But don't let that fool you - inside their tiny frames, truly big sound is waiting to emerge. When you need a synth that goes anywhere at any time, a Monotron fits the bill. And since there are a few varieties to choose from, you'll have no trouble finding the one that's perfect for your individual style.
Are you a DJ or live performer looking to bring depth to your sound with intense, analog-fueled echo? If so, the Korg Monotron Delay Analog Ribbon Synthesizer is a model you should check out. With its classic Space Delay effect, it brings back the old-school sound of tape-style echo machines from the days before digital. Sound effects are the Monotron Delay's specialty, and with the combination of an analog oscillator, filter, LSO and, of course, the Space Delay, it's incredibly versatile.
Want a second oscillator without having to size up to a bigger synth? No problem: just go for the Korg Monotron Duo Analog Ribbon Synthesizer. Like the Monotron Delay, the Duo uses a four-octave ribbon keyboard with great range and responsiveness. Better yet, it features Korg's Scale function, which means that you can choose between Chromatic, Major, Minor or Off with a single button. There's even a built-in speaker in every Korg Monotron synth, so you can tinker without the need to plug into a speaker system first.
If there's one thing that Korg has proven with the Monotron line, it's that synth doesn't have to be big to perform. In fact, it can be seriously small - and the proof is right here. Whichever model is right for you, there's no doubting that Korg Monotron synths make a big impact despite their little footprint.
