Very fun

VelvetGuitar, 23.04.2018
This is great fun to mess around with either on its own or with a synth.

Only issues are:
It has a plastic feel to it but still feels reasonably sturdy. This is to be expected though, given the price tag.
It can also sound a little white noisey at times depending on what you are going to do with it. It would be great if it didn't this problem but I'm sure it can be somewhat eq'd out if necessary. This can also be a good thing though if you are after something more lofi.

On the plus side I would have to say that it can be great fun and very easy to use. As a relative novice in the world of synths and delay / modulation effects, I was able to quickly and easily get it to sound great and produce some incredibly spacey sound effects. Just messing around with any of the knobs while a simple synth loop plays through it can immediately make it sound so much more interesting and professional (although maybe a little bit more on the lofi side of things given the slight static / white noise aspects of it)

Overall though, given the price, I would say that it is a great purchase and has tons of possibilities!

Analogue joy everywhere

27.01.2017
Monotrons should be in everyone musicians, or music/sound lover pocket. I'd say, too, that the price is quite much for what it does, in compare for what you can get for just little more money. It would be great to have it as optional gift for buying bigger Korg synths, but reality is, it's great pocket generator to not have it anyway. Maybe not for clean musical person, but if you really feel joy in generating, exploring and analyzing true analogue and dirty soundwaves, Monotrons can made it possible everywhere.

To other reviews, I'd add, there's little screwdriver button on backside, which changes LFO type, so from default triangle, you can get saw and from square you'll get different pulsewidth. With saw, you can easily emulate techno-drum and play with it.
Also, ribbon touchboard (also on Duo) is programmed in way, that if you press two points, sound generates note in between. It's little help in quite random tone finding of Delay's ribbon wide continuous scale, but it's something.

Also recently, I put Volca Sample into Delay and had very adventurous two hour train jam.
