I didn't want to stop using it and only quit when it was time to eat lunch!I will start off by saying I have owned a KORG Monotron (original) for a few years or more (since they 1st came out) and always loved being able to get such a variety of synth sounds from a pocket sized instrument. I have only used this new Monotron Delay for a few hours so far but it exceeds my expectations.I had a little bit of trouble getting it to work at 1st. Almost no sound would come out and I worried that I got a defective unit.. I adjusted the volume all the way up, nothing, tried again, nothing... I changed the (included) batteries for known good ones and still nothing... Finally, thru adjusting the settings, I realized that the cutoff knob needed to be adjusted as it was preventing any sound from being produced.. Half way up produces sound on most settings..Once I got it working, I didn't want to stop using it and only quit when it was time to eat lunch.. I am about to try it out again and probably won't quit until I figure out some more great sounding settings...5small device, big dangerthis is the size of an adult hand, but it is still very dangerous. at first i was skeptical, granted i have only dabbled in this kind of thing up until now; but if you hit the keys in the right order and with the right sequence, you can open the portal that allows contact with the s'ngai bra'h nak. i had a partner who assisted with this, i advise you to have a partner as well just in case things do not go as planned. regardless, it is a small, compact size with a danger factor of 10 and capable of unlocking many portals.5More fun than you should be allowed to have at this price!The Monotron Delay is tremendous fun, and I use it in a lot of different ways. It's great to throw in my purse and noodle around on when I have time -- it takes up almost no space, which is perfect. It's great to add as an FX instrument when I jam -- it gives great sci fi or other kinds of sounds to add to a mix, and adds something really distinctive. And it's great to use as a small, affordable delay effect to add to an instrument -- especially something like a Volca or something similar where the instrument's portable and you're already using a 1/8" jack, where it's going to be easier to deal with than a pedal effect.One good/bad thing depending on what you want is that the delay isn't a pristine digital effect -- there's some grittiness there and higher pitches will die off over time instead of being perfectly preserved. But this is pretty much by design -- perfect digital effects are available in many places if you want them, and this is intended to have a distinctive sound more like an old tape delay.I'm certainly not an expert in all the things this can do, but if you're not used to playing around with delay effects, it's pretty versatile. You can just put a decaying echo after everything, or you can turn up the feedback until it repeats everything rhythmically over time. Which is to say, you can use it as a sort of looper, though the high end will decay before long. If you can dial in sounds you like, you can even turn it into a weird sort of drum machine, repeating percussive sounds per measure or per quarter note, depending on the time interval you set. Also, like a tape delay, you can mess with the pitch as it's repeating by twisting the time knob, which yields some cool effects depending on what you're repeating.In my opinion, this is the best pocket instrument out there.5You should know what you are getting before purchasing.You have to know what you are getting before purchasing this synthesizer. It is not meant to be played like a piano. The ribbon 'keyboard' works better for random strikes and swipes. What makes this fun is the effects. The delay is gritty, noisy in a good way and analog (so some variance is expected). If you have a Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator this will definitely be a great companion.5addictive introduction to analog synthesis, and a surprisingly capable gritty-space-trash noiseification machineI have a classical piano background and an itch for analog synth noises, so I bought the Monotron Delay to familiarize myself with synth foundations and figure out what I liked before I splurged on a more fully featured synth. I also have the Duo, but the Delay is far more fun. It looks like a child's toy but don't be fooled; it is a pocket beast that can easily produce some of the filthiest, grittiest, dystopian space-trash-compactor sounds you have ever heard. You can get a surprising amount of sound exploration out of it, and the simple array of stripped down controls is more of a feature than a drawback in that it lets you build an intimately familiar mental model for everything you're doing.By itself, it makes some fun noises, but you'll probably tire of that pretty fast. It really shines if you pair it with another instrument that can produce predictable notes. You can't really carry a melody on the ribbon synth because it's not discretized or fixed to any scale, although you could always plug in a different Monotron that lets you play scales. I like to jam with it by running my normal 88-key piano through it, and using the delay portion as a filter on top of my piano sounds, with the LFO layered for auxiliary cosmic noise. I've also had a lot of fun running my friend's sequencer through it. The delay is addictive paired with a keyboard, as the feedback loop gives you a bit of rhythmic encouragement and you can bend the loop you've got trapped in there for a fun effect. It's a little annoying how much base noise there is -- if you run a clean sound source through the Delay, there's no way to twist the controls to get back to a clean-sounding output, which would make for a nice contrast. But I guess that's not the goal of the Delay. It's more about twisting the cutoff knob as the LFO ray-gun sound trapped in the feedback loop builds to a climax, to transform into a rocket blasting a slow burn into an alien atmosphere.FYI, it's hard to see the dial indicator indents so I painted them white. Battery life is great. Bring your own aux cables for input and output. The onboard speaker is okay for messing around but it's more fun when you have a subwoofer.5[Duo] A truly pocketable analog synthesizerI'll keep this short. If you want a compact analog synthesizer, then there is nothing else sized like this on the market. The only thing close to this size is a Pocket Operator, which is a very different kind of product.The Monotron Duo is well built, the ribbon keyboard is responsive, and the generated sound is good, even when listened to through the small builtin speaker. The keyboard modes do a great job of making the ribbon keyboard a more viable controller. I wish that a future model could combine the features of both the Duo and the Delay, but we'll see if one will ever be made.Duo or Delay: it's really up to what do you want to use them for. I went for the Duo because I wanted some device on which to play with sound and potentially also play some simple tunes. If I wanted to generate stranger sound effects, I'd have went with the Delay. Have a look at some videos showing the features of each and see which one you'd prefer.5Is it a toy? An instrument? A proving ground?It's kind of a toy, but also kind of a proof-of-concept for Korg. The Monotron duo is awesome. It's about the size of an old audio cassette case. The knobs are responsive, but a little wobbly. The ribbon is great - very responsive, and it's easy to use. You can make some fun and funky sounds with this. There's a little button on the left shoulder of the unit that selects between continuous and several quantized modes. The two oscillators are controlled with a pitch knob (labeled VCO1), and the second oscillator is tuned relative to VCO1 with the VCO2 knob. This actually caused great frustration for me, because they were not perfectly in-tune on my unit when the VCO2 knob was straight up and down - it had to be a little bit to the left. This no doubt has to do with the analog circuitry and cheapness of the product, but the imperfection was annoying enough that I sent it back.The VCF sounds fantastic, and the cross modulation knob adds a lot of character to the sound.For those who have seen the original Monotron, you'll notice that there's no LFO on this unit. You're trading the LFO for the second oscillator and the quantization button. The result is a much more musical machine, but the tradeoff is real.You also get an aux in jack, which allows you to run external audio through the excellent filter.I said this was a "proof-of-concept," and it is - where the concept is, "A ridiculously affordable and fun analog synth that proves people want analog synthesizers, so Korg can go on to make tons more at other price points with different features." It *seems* like this device made other instruments, like the Volca series and the Minilogue, possible. And for that, I am tremendously grateful. And I really like this product. But having returned the unit I purchased, I would not buy another since I purchased the Volca Keys instead. The bottom line is that if you can afford this unit or the Volca Keys, you want the Volca Keys. But this is an excellent toy and a surprisingly fun instrument, if seriously limited in application.4Awesome analog giggles.Ok, so I figured I would use this on vocals based on that hilarious but informative YouTube video where the guy goes, "This is how we delay. We delay like this. MONOTROOOON BAAAABY!" But I didn't know I would eventually use this thing on an mpx8, vocals, drums, and guitar- and having a blast doing it. Don't be fooled by the fact that has only an aux input and headphone output 3.5 mm. You can get monstrous and cool sounds out of the monotron delay when you route an external signal through it.That said, it's not exactly musical. Hitting notes is not only impossible, but honestly not at all what this is about. I picked up the Duo that plays scales for easier musicality. And plan to run it through the delay for big synthy analog sci fi textural stuff.Can't go wrong here. Pick them up before Korg stops making these and drive the price up. You won't regret it.5A great sound synthesizer for creating flying saucer sounds.Go to the demo video for this product to see and hear how this sound effects synthesizer works and the range of sound effects it can generate. Your next door neighbors will swear that they heard a UFO landing in your yard when you patch the output through to a guitar amplifier and crank up the volume. Be sure to turn it off after the UFO takes off and disappears into the sky, just before calling your neighbor to ask if they had seen the UFO. Warning: This unit does not capture any video of UFOs which may have been there. Unit has a built-in speaker but also works with headphones. Great for beginner synthesizer students of synthetic sound generation.5Amazing Device, don't let the size fool you it's not just a toy.I purchased this item to gauge my interest in the Korg Volca Keys Mini Synth and it exceeded my expectations in every way. The 4 selectable note patterns for the Ribbon are a great way to quickly get the sound you are after and even allow you to perform surprisingly consistent melodies despite the seemingly "micro" size of the ribbon keyboard. When plugged into speakers I get nice low bass notes that the built in speaker can't recreate. It lasts a long time on the supplied AAA batteries. I will be upgrading to the Volca Keys for the looping and automation abilities, but only because this device convinced me it is worth pursuing. I work from home and, even with the Volca Keys, this device will absolutely still be in regular use as a desktop diversion during long work days and as a second synth for sample creation.5
