Just to show that the Monotribe punches well above its weight.

Not bad for a synth with one LFO and no real envelopes!
No modular synths were harmed in this experiment!

Are you recording through the Mackie into an interface of some sort? The sound quality is so good. It sounds "Mastered."

These videos have convinced me that my Monotribe needs a brother...

Each Monotribe to its separate channel on the Mackie 2404VLZ-4, one panned half-left, the other half-right. Both fed into the effects chain return. HOF Reverb>Joya Analog Delay>Strymon Deco. Sub 1 and 2 attenuated to feed FZ1000 camera.
Nothing special! Sometimes I get lucky with the timbre!

Well you've certainly got my attention there.

I already own a small Mackie VLZ4 which gives a great basic tone.

I'm thinking your effects chain is really effective. I'll have to take a look at those specific types of pedals.

100% percent made with Monotribes.
Recorded live.
Vermona 14' ARP OUT via CV to melody Monotribe.
Another Monotribe does the Percussion (through reverse gate on 2404VLX4)
Yes another does the JMJ noise sweep.
The noise and melody go through, HOF, analog delay and Strymon Deco.

The H1 recording was brought into Audacity, reversed, split into two tracks
a LP and HP filter added and both a reverb, reversed again, rejoined and mixed back to the L R track

Sound effects experiments with two Monotribes.
Neat things can happen when you feed the headphones of #1 into synch IN of #2
AND feed the headphones of #2 into synch IN of #1 !!!!

Easter Egg Sequencer on a Monotribe?

Will work whether it is a Miditized, just Vanilla, or CV enabled.

1)Turn On Monotribe
2)Reset Monotribe with FUNCTION 1,2,3,4
3)On Synth press the Step buttons 1-8
4)Press Play

With three different Monotribes, I get three different patterns.
What I think is happening is the sequence data is undefined, so the
Monotribe makes it up. Having said that, it is a the same random
sequence every time you do the above steps, per Monotribe.

Try it yourself, I am still experimenting with this.....

4 Monotribes supply the percussion.
Using 1 Monotribe as Master MIDI CLOCK to Bannana Split
then to Synths but one to CV OCD, which supplies the
3 triggers to the other Monotribes.

I need a way to start and stop all 4 MT at the same time
and the answer lies with the Timbre Wolf, with a 4 track sequencer
on 4 different midi channels.
Make each track for the different elements triggering the CV OCD
and then this will start/stop the monotribes.
(as a MT as MIDI CLOCK sends it regardless of play state
but the TW only sends it when play is pressed)

All analog except for the opening notes which as Blofeld and MS-20kit

4 Monotribes provide the percussion, with a Timbre Wolf jammin down..

My Monotribe(M) provides the midi clock which controls CH 1, 2, and 3
on a Timbre Wolf, which then in turn sequences Monotribes 1,2, and 3.
Because track 4 is unused, I played this live.
(Because the TW has separate outputs I get a clean synth feed from output 4)
Lots of compression (dbx 266sx) on the tribe drums per track to the 2404VLZ.
Reverb and stuff on the TW.

Is the mute VCO mod tough to do? I need to turn a Monotribe into an Acid box, but
I need to short out or mute the VCO to do so.

I remember reading I short the waveform selector to ground with a switch?

The synth mute mod by @monkeyxx is linked in the first post. I haven't done it, but it looks pretty simple. The wave outs that you have to send to ground have pretty good-sized solder pads.

I was considering this mod until I got a Monologue. It doesn't have quite the same aural magic as the Monotribe, but it does have some advantages for processing external audio: the external input is 1/4" TS, in addition to the filter and fast LFO it also has distortion, and motion control of the filter/LFO/Distortion can be sequenced. Processing external audio is easy since the oscillators can simply be turned down to 0.

Thanks, I will ponder this, I see it has SYNCH IN and OUT, which is a good thing.
Notice no Sample and Hold, but can the Motion sequencer be used to control external in VCF, which would somewhat do a similar thing??

I really dig the fact the S&H on the Monotribe S&H can be synced to tempo, as long as the sequencer is in play mode, but it means you have to mute the VCOs (or not) as a little bit of ambiance never hurt anyone.

I will look for one used on kijiji, as my MS-20kit has all the connectors to talk nice with other Korgs! (except the Synch) (and I have way more Korgs than anything else)
Maybe I am a Korg Fanboi! lol

Correct, the Monologue does not have Sample + Hold which is a major checkmark in the Monotribe column. But yes, you can motion sequence the VCF (even when just processing external audio) so that the cutoff has a different value on each sequencer step. Not as random as true Sample + Hold but a similar effect.

As an experiment I routed an MS-20kit intothe Monotribe AcidBox with the S&H.
Already had at least 6 bevvies on this Friday/now Saturday morning, and I was playing the Monotribe after midnight (just see Gremlins to see how this worked out).

The Monologue looks like something to persue, but must watch more youtube vids. I also have 5 Monotribes, and I CAN NEVER feed them after midnight!!!

Drums are Monotribe and Volca Kick

4 Monotribes
Monotribe M supplies drums, scratch sound,synch and midi clock.
Monotribe 3 supplies the playable VCO, played with Vermona 14' via CV V/octave V/trig to this monotribe.
Headphone out to Monotribe 2 set to Sample and Hold (L), synched to Monotribe M, Synch out and Headphone out
to Monotribe 4 which supplies S&H (R).

2 and 4 are used as Acidboxes, but as yet the VCOs have not been muted.
These are stand-ins to see what an Erica Synths Acid Box 3 would sound like!


100% Monotribe production.

Going to add the vco mute to some monotribes but in a slightly different way.

I will use a switching jack instead of a switch from the triangle vco output.

That way, if triangle selected and nothing plugged into jack, the vco will be mutued, but will allow external filtering.

Also, with a jack I will also have access to the triangle to go out of the monotribes by plugging in.

Monotribe Low note, MS-20kit high note.
Monotribe is CV controlled via CV OCD set to low note and controlled
via MIDI from the MS-20 with Kenton USB2MIDI

Can the Monotribe output CV and Gate?
My Google skills are letting me down.

I'm seriously loving mine and its sequencer more than ever.
It's deceptively simple on the surface, but incredibly powerful.
I'd love to drive my MS20 from it

Only outputs Synch.
CV/Gate in, but not out.
But you can use the Midi mod for clock.

I put the midi kit in mine, but I don't use it much anymore so I'm selling it.

Some weirdling monotribe abstraction.
Monotribe controlled by MS-20kit (does not make sound)
through left and right monotribe filters. (panned mono though,
but monotribe is processed through two different envelopes)
MS-20 does control Deco lag time though.
Blofeld creates abstract noise.
A bit of noodling with Vermona '14 and perFOURer.
