Offering battery power and a built-in speaker, the Monotrons can be used to make music anywhere. There's a headphone output for private use, connecting to an amplifier or PA system, to add depth to a live performance, or for composing and recording in any studio setting.
Simple to use, the front panel provides five knobs and a front-panel switch, offering authentic hands-on analog control. The ribbon keyboard can be used for picking out melodies or creating lush-sounding effects. The Monotron Series uses the same VCF circuit as Korg's classic MS-10 and MS-20 semi modular synthesizers from over 30 years ago. The AUX input jack allows any audio source to be placed into the signal path and processed by this analog filter, adding tone-bending filter effects to any sound or instrument. Here's what Korg has to say about the Monotron family:

Thanks Nick for providing the demos of the Monotron synths. After viewing, I picked up both the Monotron and Monotron Duo. Both synths sound much bigger than I would have thought. I'm using both now - I'm interested to see what Korg will introduce next. Thanks.
