Musikmesse 2011 rumor: What would you do if you were Korg, and two of your hottest products in recent years were the Monotron and the Electribe?
If you think like me, you’d try cross-breeding them to see what happens.
And it looks like something like this may be in the works….
Korg recently registered the name Monotribe as a trademark for “multi-track rhythm and drum machines”. It was published for opposition yesterday, 3/29/2011.
We’d like to see the Korg Monotribe turn out to be Monotron-style synth with an Electribe-style sequencer – sort of a modern take on the classic Roland TB-303 bassline synthesizer. If they could to this at “Electribe sized” prices, it would be a monster hit.
At this time, though, the Korg Monotribe is just a rumor. A pretty cool rumor.
