By ways of great exception Korg has released the schematics of their little Monotron synthesizer. Allthough this little cuty was being hacked the day it came out, now there is an official schematic to follow. As the Monotron is a complete analog synth it is ideal for ‘circuit bending’.
Monostudio is a realtime effects processor with built-in vintage drumcomputer. It enriches the sonic palette of the already extremely versatile Korg Monotron analogue ribbon synthesizer.
Korg USA’s Rich Formidoni explores the monotron Analog Ribbon Synthesizer. In this three-part series, a K01 KAOSSILATOR is processed using the monotron’s LFO and VCF circuits. Note that the filter is the same as the one used in Korg’s classic and coveted MS-10 and MS-20 synthesizers!
