An analog synthesizer with two oscillators and a filter that can create more radical sounds. The oscillator part can be used as a normal 2OSC, and the X-MOD function, which was installed in the famous Korg Mono/Poly machine, has been restored.

■ monotron DUO is an analog synthesizer that has two oscillators and a filter and can create more radical sounds. The oscillator part can be used as a normal 2OSC, and the X-MOD (cross modulation) function that was installed on the famous Korg machine Mono/Poly was revived over time. By modulating the pitch of oscillator 1 with the waveform of oscillator 2, it is possible to create a vibrato effect in which the pitch is cyclically swung by an LFO, to a radical metallic sound like an FM synth.
■ The scale function familiar to KAOSSILATOR has been added to the ribbon controller keyboard of monotron DUO. By switching the switch, you can select four scales: chromatic/major/minor/off. Select chromatic if you want to play at an exact pitch like playing a piano, major or minor if you want to play a musical phrase by sliding your finger while feeling, select according to your playing style. You can.
■ Equipped with a highly rated VCF circuit that has been adopted in the famous Korg's machines MS-10 and MS-20 of the past. The powerful analog-only filter dramatically changes the sound and gives it a strong personality that will never be buried even during live and event stages.
■ Equipped with a small speaker in the body. With its battery-powered and compact size, you can easily take it out anytime and anywhere with this one. Furthermore, it is also possible to output the sound of the digital audio player etc. input from the external input terminal from the speaker together with the sound of the monotron DUO. It's the most compact system out there, opening up new possibilities for performance.
