KORG MONOTRON-DUO Dual Oscillator Synthesizer

Go Anywhere Analog: That was the theme behind the remarkable battery-powered and palm-sized Korg analog synthesizer dubbed the monotron. The Dual Oscillator monotron DUO offers X-MOD capabilities for generating even more extreme sounds. It is equipped with a ribbon keyboard and a live, ready-to-be tweaked front panel offering five knobs and a single switch. This simple operation and ease of use invites hours of enjoyment and musical exploration.

Casual users and gadget mavens will quickly enjoy performing melodies, DJs can create dazzling effects on stage, while established players can add analog muscle to their performance - the possibilities are virtually endless.

Go Anywhere Analog

A miniature speaker is built into the every monotron. Along with the battery operation and compact size, this feature allows you to enjoy the share the monotron Series analog synthesis sound with your friends, anywhere, at any time. There's also a headphone output that you can use when practicing in private, creating sounds at home, recording, or for connecting to an amplifier or PA system.

VCO + VCF = Modular synthesis building blocks

The basic analog sound-building circuit in each of the monotrons is radically simple: one voltage-controlled oscillator and one voltage-controlled filter. As a result, the process of sound creation is intuitive, and instantly understandable. And it's tons of fun. Each Korg monotron provides the joy of sonic creativity that's at the heart of analog synthesis.

Classic Korg Filtering

The distinctive tone of an analog filter (VCF) can dramatically alter and enrich the sound. The monotron Series uses the same highly acclaimed VCF circuit as KORG's classic MS-10 and MS-20 semi modular synthesizers. Originally released over 30 years ago, these instruments are still coveted today for their aggressive, dynamic filters. The VCF Cutoff knob sets the frequency or tone of the filter; the VCF Peak knob (monotron, monotron DUO) adds emphasis. A powerful filter is an essential aspect of any analog synthesizer, applying dramatic tonal changes to the sound, and projecting an intense personality that will stand out in any live performance.

Fully-patchable Filter

The input jack (AUX input) built into each monotron's compact body allow you to place any audio source into the signal path, directly before the analog filter. This provides a great way to connect a KAOSSILATOR, a guitar, or a digital audio player to the monotron Series and enjoy tone-bending filter effects.

Dual Oscillator / X-Mod Design

Offering two oscillators, the monotron DUO adds an extra dimension, delivering an even more extreme sound. Tune the oscillators in unison for a rich, thick, analog tone. Tune them in intervals for classic soloing sounds and generating new effects. The X-MOD (cross modulation) circuit taken from Korg's classic Mono/Poly can introduce a mild or razor-sharp edge to the overall sound; everything from a rich vibrato to extreme metallic sounds reminiscent of an FM synth.

Enhanced Ribbon Controller Keyboard

The monotron DUO's ribbon controller keyboard now features the familiar Scale function used on the KAOSSILATOR. You can use this button to select one of four scales: Chromatic, Major, Minor, or Off. Choose the Chromatic scale to play precise pitches as on a piano, or choose Major or Minor to generate musically coherent phrases by simply sliding your finger around on the keyboard.

Features:
  • Two analog oscillators (VCO) with individual tunings
  • Edgy X-MOD (with Intensity knob) circuit from Korg's classic Mono/Poly
  • VCF with Cutoff and Peak Control
  • Ribbon controller keyboard with Scale Select
  • 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 am about to start my own recording studio for the first time. i have rythyms and beats that are in my head and i want to know exactly what i need to make the sounds in my head come to life. im not familiar with any keyboards,drum machines or anything like that but i do write hip hop music for fun and want to know if this piece of equiptment can help me in taking a sound from the keyboard and "TWEEKING" it to make it sound like a wholenother type of sound by expanding it or making the sound shorter or adding depth?

BEST ANSWER: Hi there,

This is a great little synth, but might not be what you're looking for when it comes to options. If you're looking for simple, great sounds, this is the synth for you. As for manipulation of sounds, it can only do so much.
