So73 - Korg Monotron As Lead Synthesizer
Download this track free: http://www.reverbnation.com/soundofseventythree
I figured it was time someone made a little music with the Monotron rather than just noise. This one is called the Monosong! A short demo featuring the Korg Monotron as a lead synthesizer. Improvised in one take.
The Monotron was fed into my Mini-KP to add delay & reverb. The backing track was created using my Korg Kaossilator for the first drum loop, the bassline, and the chord progression. The second drum loop was created using the Zoom MRT-3B Micro RhythmTrak filtered through the Monotron's MS-20 filter. The guitar is my Reverend Warhawk HB run direct into my Korg PX5D Pandora. Complete list of gear used to create the track:
Korg Monotron Analog Synthesizer
Korg Kaossilator KO-1 (patches P.96, b.31, c57)
Korg Mini-KP Kaoss Pad (program #62 Delay & Reverb)
Korg PX5D Pandora (for guitar effects, amp modeling, and as computer interface)
Reverend Warhawk HB (original w/ bolt on neck)
Zoom Micro RhythmTrack MRT-3B
Macbook w/ GarageBand
