Using The Korg Monotron As A Lead Synth

More Than Just A Noisemaker      18/08/10

YouTuber Douglas Johnson (Sound of Seventy Three) created this track to demonstrate how the Korg Monotron could be used to make "a little music....rather than just noise."

Here's what Johnson has to say about it:

This one is called the Monosong featuring the Korg Monotron as a lead synthesizer.

It was improvised in one take. The Monotron was fed into my Mini-KP to add delay & reverb. The backing track was created using my Korg Kaossilator for the first drum loop, the bassline, and the chord progression. The second drum loop was created using the Zoom MRT-3B Micro RhythmTrak filtered through the Monotron's MS-20 filter.

I guess, it was too much of a hassle to make a 2 octave, real world size mini midi keyboard version?.
