Korg Monotribe

Korg has announcing a major update for the monotribe, now in version 2.

The monotribe Version 2 adds new features, allowing you to create sequences that are more elaborate, or to layer complex musical developments for extended performances.

One of the new additions is a new synchronized performance mode that allows for new type of performance using multiple monotribe units.


Highlights

Sequencer:

  • Synth part resolution has been doubled to 16 Steps
  • Volume Automation has been added to the synth part.
  • Active Step can be specified for each part.
  • Drum Roll capability has been added.
  • Gate Time Hold function has been added.

Synthesizer:

  • Sample and Hold (S&H) function added to LFO.

Sync:

  • Connected sequences allow multiple monotribe units to play in rotation.
  • Half Tempo function has been added.

Short Cut Keys:

  • Four convenient shortcuts for creating patterns quickly

 

16-Step Synth parts

As with drum parts, the synth part now provides timing information in between the steps in a sequence, allowing a pattern to achieve a total of 16 steps.

 

Synth Part Volume Automation

Volume Automation allows the synth volume to be recorded during playback to create more detailed sequences. The left side of the ribbon controller keyboard decreases the volume, and the right side increases it. This Volume Automation can even be controlled when if Flux mode is on.

 

Set individual Active Steps for each Part

The Active Step function lets you specify which steps are played or jumped when playing back the step sequencer. Now, the Active Step can be set individually for each of the SYNTH, BD, SD, and HH parts. By specifying a different number of steps for each part, you can create complex polyrhythms

 

Sample & Hold (S & H) added to the LFO

The newly added S&H function is indispensible for creating analog synth sound effects. The RATE knob adjusts the frequency of change, and the INT. knob adjusts the depth of change.

 

Drum Roll capability

A roll can now be added to the desired drum part. The speed of the roll can be controlled using the ribbon controller keyboard; moving toward the right will increase the number of strikes. You can also record the drum roll using the sequencer to create drum patterns.

 

Linked Sequences play multiple monotribes in rotation

The Link Sequence feature is a new sync method that expands the scope of the monotribe. When sequence playback reaches step 8, the sequence will automatically stop and the next monotribe unit will start playing. By loop-connecting the SYNC jacks, the playback can keep cycling through multiple units.

 

New Additions

The Gate Time Hold function lets you use the ribbon controller keyboard to play and record new pitch information while retaining the gate times recorded in the sequencer. Also new is the Half Tempo function, which cuts the tempo in half when synchronizing to an external input from the SYNC IN jack. In addition, there are now four shortcut keys that instantly initialize various types of sequence data or active step settings.

 

Updating Procedure

Thinking of monotribe as an analog synthesizer, the procedure of for updating the Operating System is also an analog-style method, reminiscent of loading data via the playback of analog cassette tape. Simply download the system data which Korg has encoded as an audio (WAV) file from www.korg.com or from the website of your local Korg distributor. Then, play back the file using a WAV file player like a Smartphone or using PC application software, directly in to the monotribe's SYNC IN jack. When the audio (WAV) file finished playing, your monotribe has been updated.

 

WARNING

Do not playback the system update file on any speaker or headphone system as this could lead to damage to equipment and/or hearing loss. Neither Korg nor any of its affiliates will accept responsibility for any damages, personal loss or injury that may result from playback of the file.
