Korg Monotron Delay by monophonic
An amazing little beast, the Monotron Delay is instantly usable right out of the box. Just plug and play. Well, that is, play random notes on the ribbon, and turn a few random knobs - the very first time, at least. And produce random, incredible sounds. Although you won't understand exactly what you're doing, you'll be travelling back to a golden era of good old sounds. You'll be Perrey & Kingsley for a while, then Pierre Henry a few minutes afterwards. Then you'll play around again with the knobs and travel even further - in the past or in the future. There's a kind of wild weirdness with the filter and delay stuff, an incredible randomness with the ribbon combined with the rate and intensity. Small controls, big power.
Of course, there's that hiss on the headphone output. But a simple equation ([(price + size) * fun factor] - output noise) gives a result of 100% satisfaction.
I haven't gone for the modding adventure yet, but it's just the next thing on my todo list... and it's also part of the fun side of the Monotron.
This little piece of plastic is all about fun. And time. The delay time parameter for sure, but also the time you'll be spending just playing around with it.
