  1. Great! I played around with it for a bit, I especially love the drumcomputer sound. It's really hard to capture the feel of the old minipops. The drumbox feel here is what makes this work, and it works really well.

    Make this baby a VST plugin with tempo sync and I'm sold.

  2. Rob, was it SUPER noisy and very low tone volume for you? Or do i just need to replace my monotron's batteries and maybe set up my interface correctly?

  3. I would describe my experience with Monotron's output as super noisy with low volume. I would think they are all like that. I think unfortunately this is one of the areas Korg cut costs as well the lack of MIDI.
    Still love it though.

  4. Have to agree with the noise thing, esp. in the cutoff position. I run mine thougha multifx with a noise gate and it hleps a bit, but any external audio run through the filter still picks up the noise. I bet the MS-20 does too though. Wondering if it would quiet down any the amp was bypassed and the signal run straight out, should be cleaner as the pix of the inside I/ve seen look to be using something like the LM386 for an amp. They are noisy little things at the best of times. Not sure how feasible this would be with all those surface mount parts…. Really do love it though. Try running audio out back into the audio in, mixer or even a headphone splitter works. Makes a very fat sound.
