Powered by two alkaline AAA batteries, the compact Monotron can be held in one hand.

Concentrating on the most important sound parameters, the controls have been streamlined as much as possible. The panel contains only five knobs and one switch.

The Monotron ribbon controller keyboard is designed to take ease of use further. Simple finger gestures can
produce expressive effects such as vibrato and glide, the company says. Used in a band, you can expand your possibilities by
harmonizing with another instrument or taking center stage for a monotron solo.

The monotrons circuit is simple: one voltage-controlled oscillator, one voltage-controlled filter, and one low frequency oscillator. Since each knob directly applies a specific change to the sound, the process of sound creation is intuitive, and instantly understandable, Korg says.

The monotron uses the same VCF circuit as Korg's MS-10 and MS-20 semi modular synthesizers. The VCF Cutoff knob sets the frequency or tone of the filter; the VCF Peak knob adds emphasis.
