Korg's monotron DUO analog synthesizer is part of Korg's immensely
popular mono-line of pint-sized analog synths - they sound huge yet fit
in your pocket. The no-frills design gives you two voltage-controlled
oscillators (hence the name DUO) and the same voltage-controller filter
circuit from the revered Korg MS10 and MS20 synths. You get the thick,
syrupy sound only possible with an analog circuit with the Korg monotron
The real secret weapon in the monotron DUO's sound-shaping arsenal is
the X-MOD circuit (cross modulation) with intensity control. X-MOD lets
you modulate the first oscillator with the signal from the second
oscillator, creating new harmonics and overtones. The result? Metallic
screeches, glistening bells, and robotic warbles are all just a knob
twist away, and wouldn't be possible with a single-oscillator synth. You
also get four modes to help you play the ribbon controller just the way
you like: major scale, minor scale, chromatic, and no scale. Factor in
the portability provided by battery operation, and you've got an
incredible synth powerhouse in the Korg monotron DUO analog synthesizer!

Headphone output lets you play silently or send your performance to a recorder
Author: Max Overall it's a very cool product, it is tough to get used to using if you have big hands like I do but after awhile you get the hang of it.
Tons of fun messing around with VCF and a great way to be creative while on my headphones so I don't drive the wife and kids crazy, more than worth the coinage!
