Korg DELAY overview

  • 1Description

The Monotron DELAY Analog Ribbon Synthesizer by Korg is a pocket sized, all-analog synthesizer optimized for sound effects with a miniature ribbon keyboard, built-in speaker, headphone jack and 1/8" (3.5 mm) mini Aux input. In addition to its analog oscillator, filter and LFO, it also provides an essential Space Delay for swooping, cosmic type sounds.

Play the keyboard with a swiping finger motion across the ribbon and discover a wealth of possibilities for performances, DJs and entertainment. The Monotron DELAY features the same analog (VCF) filter found in the legendary Korg MS-10 and MS-20; and the VCF and LFO sections provide seemingly limitless programming. Its portable, pocket-sized design can be taken nearly anywhere and powered with just two AAA batteries.

    Korg DELAY reviews

    Monotron DELAY Analog Ribbon Synthesizer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome space noise machine Alright I'm a Korg fan. Have the Monotron Duo, which is awesome especially since you can play it in tune, but the Delay is extra amazing. It is way more versatile than any youtube video would lead you to believe...just subtle alterations of the knobs open gateways to truely otherworldly sounds. Think 50s science fiction movies. I use a Nintendo DS stylus on the ribbon controller, works better than fingers. Excellent machine at an unbeatable price for making burbling, crazy noises to compliment your tracks. Pure fun.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A miniature monster! I knew going in that the Korg Monotron Delay would be somewhat limited considering its diminutive size and $ price tag. What I didn't expect was the monstrous sound that comes out of this thing! Adding delay to the existing Monotron sound makes for some interesting effects and sound possibilities (think 50's/60's sci-fi). The added 1/8 input jack further enhances its functionality but allowing you to run audio through the delay as well.For music-making, a pen or something else that has a smaller tip is necessary since using your finger on the ribbon-controller is difficult for precise control of pitch.All in all it's lots of fun and is well worth the money. I think the Monotron would be a fantastic way to introduce children to the possibilities of synthesis. Man, I wish I had something like this when I was a kid!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun Sound wave surfer devise. I would recommend it as first synthesizer or a meditation tool. Love that it works on batteries lots of fun anywhere. You can take it outside, to your job, school or a park. Great gadget!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aliens have landed and shared their toys This is a toy. A fun toy, but a toy nonetheless. It is capable of producing a wide variety of sounds. The delay is really cool for a device this size. The only thing I don't particularly like is the keyboard being permanently set to wide mode (the monotribe has three settings). I have really large hands, and am still able to manipulate the controls with ease. The noise level is a bit high, but then again...this is analog.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, fun, lo-fi: worth to get one I'm a sound designer and keyboard/synth player, so i've been using my monotron delay mostly for creating sound fx and processing external audio. It's signal path really very simple, and although it has no resonance control, i'm not really missing it. The filter is great and the space echo dirty. The lfo is really fast, and the 4 octave range is really nice for using the LFO. The delay self-oscilates, which is a good thing... but, too quick... with feedback knob at 12 o clock it will start self oscilating. LFO is fixed to modulate pitch, so it's not the most flexible synth... but it's only $ ... With the ribbon controller, you should not even think of playing melodies... The audio path is kinda dirty... but, really dirty, and when you process external sources, they become really dirty and lo fi, so, don't expect anything but that: lo fi and fun and simplicity

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fun little noise machine. This is probably the funnest $ I've ever spent. It is a simple and straight-forward analogue synthesizer with a delay. The ribbon spans the entire range of the LFO, so don't expect to be able to play specific notes like on the Monotron Duo.I would definitely recommend adding some rubber feet to the unit as it tends to slide around otherwise.
    Date published: 2012-03-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Consider the monotron delay a dynamite toy for grown folks. It's function is not necessarily musical and I don't use it directly in my musical pursuits, but it provides an abstract function that feeds my music in the intangible. As a tool for meditation it is far out indeed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fun noise maker A great noise machine. I hope Korg keeps making small analog synths & perhaps combines the 'Delay' & 'Duo' models into a $100 or $150 model.
