Korg Monotron by mahasandi
This is the coolest and smallest most affordable analog synth around.
Now you can mod this thing like crazy and I did mod mine to have a 1/4" output that comes from the pcb board and is about -10db quieter the the headphone out, and so this is obviously not that hard to do searching online and also improves its sound quality for recording.
The little thing has Bass!!!! it is a nice rich sound and the ribbon controller is fun to use and gives you that unique sound and note transition
monotron key features:
VCO Voltage Controlled Oscillator
VCF with Cutoff and Peak Control
LFO can be applied to the Pitch (VCO) or Filter(VCF)
Ribbon controller keyboard
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
I have not brought in external sources i need to make a cable from my interface to 3.5mm male but I think this will be very cool.
The range of sounds is pretty good considering how simple it is.
But really the sounds it has are very fun and usable
When you tweak the controls it is a little tricky to maintain the ribbon controller accuracy tales some practice.
using a stylus can be a good trick although I find that on off triggering can be harder with a stylus.
I know they released the monotribe which is a little more featured but honestly for the price I think this is the one to get.
It has the ms20 osc, that is crazy
If you do not mod the output to be from the pcb and use the headphone out keep in mind it may sound too noisy for recording and if you feel you cant do this mod then I might not get this little guy.It is cool but the extra noise would have been very limiting if there was no way around it.
