The Korg monotron DELAY is an extremely compact analog ribbon synthesizer with a live, ready-to-be tweaked front panel providind five knobs and one switch.

Casual users and people who love to tinker with gadgets will find it easy to enjoy producing melodies with a simple knob tweak and tapping along the keyboard section. DJs and established musicians can also utilize the monotron DELAY to add some dazzling sound effects or pump some analog power into their performance. The possibilities are virtually limitless.

Classic Analog Synth / Space Delay Combination

A quality delay was an integral part of the classic analog synthesizer sound. More often than not, that delay would come from a tape-style echo machine until economical digital delays were available. The monotron DELAY is an analog synthesizer optimized for sound effects. On top of its analog oscillator, filter, and LFO, it also offers a Space Delay that's essential for swooping, cosmic sounds. The monotron DELAY even reproduces the pitch changes that happen when the delay time is varied, just as if an analog tape echo were being used. As with the filter, the delay effect can be utilized for any external sound via the Aux In jack. This fat and warm delay will enhance your analog sounds with and authentic edge.

Dual-Waveform LFO

The Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) waveform used to modulate the pitch now provides a choice of waveshapes – a new square wave plus the traditional triangle wave. Both the Rate (Speed) and the Intensity (Depth) can be changed separately. In addition, a trimpot on the back panel can continuously change the shape/direction of the triangle wave or the pulse-width of the square wave to deliver even more versatility. Used in tandem with the delay, the LFO can generate dazzling effects and provide distinctive possibilities for embellishing songs. 

Wide-Range Ribbon Keyboard

The monotron DELAY's ribbon controller keyboard boats a wide, four-octave range. This design enables the pitch to be controlled even more aggressively and dynamically, making the monotron DELAY an excellent weapon for a DJ to get the floor moving with irresistible sound. The reversed white keys and body adornments glow under a black light, which makes the monotron DELAY perfect for delivering a striking visual presence in nearly any club environment.

Customer Reviews

very fun Review by Nawlege
I love my monotone delay! Very fun and sounds awesome. It's kind of noisy when you use it to process external audio but well worth the fifty bucks. (Posted on 2/15/15)
