Is there a bottom limit for the size of a synthesizer? Korg doesn't think so, and all the evidence you need of that is the Korg Monotron series. These synths are just plain tiny: you could fit one in a good-sized pocket without much trouble. But inside their small cases, the Monotron synths pack a big surprise. These little machines can produce the kind of sound that would be impressive even from a full-sized model. A Korg Monotron is ready to go wherever (and whenever) you are - just slip it into your backpack and hit the road. All you need to do to get started is to decide which model best fits your own tastes, so take a look and see what there is to choose from.
For the live performer or DJ, the one that stands out is the Korg Monotron Delay Analog Ribbon Synthesizer. It delivers intense depth thanks to its analog-based echo effects. You can even use its unique "Space Delay" feature to take your sound back to the pre-digital era with accurate modeling of classic tape-style echo machines. With this little synth, it's all about the effects - not only the Space Delay, but also its powerful mix of analog oscillation, LSO and filter. The Monotron Delay is versatility you can hold in the palm of your hand.
If you're looking for a second oscillator in a synth that's just as compact as the Monotron Delay, look no further than its brother, the Korg Monotron Duo Analog Ribbon Synthesizer. Its four-octave ribbon keyboard is just like the Monotron Delay, and it also comes with Korg's Scale function, giving you the choice between Chromatic, Major and Minor with the push of a button. No speaker system handy? No problem: each Korg Monotron synth has a small built-in speaker so you can experiment on the go.
When a pocket-sized synth is what you need, it just doesn't get any better than the Korg Monotron series. They're small enough to take anywhere, versatile enough to play any style and powerful enough to give you the sound you'd expect from any synthesizer stamped with the Korg name. Use the built-in speaker to compose on the go, or connect a favorite pair of headphones to make things even more intimate: everything is up to you.
