aus der internationalen Kraftwerk Mailinglist: firstname.lastname@example.org > It's a great new product by KORG, distributed since August. The Monotron is a very powerful analogue synthesizer with filters of the legendary KORG MS 20. Sometimes it's my impression that any scrap heap becomes "legendary" if it's only older than 10 years. Nobody in the late seventies or early eighties had the MS-20 because it had a good sound, it was simply the only synthesizer that was affordable for a student at that time. It had a certain flexibility because there was this patch board, and there was the sequencer to be used with it, but the sound was not "powerful", it was simply $&%§§$§**'#. When I listen to my old recordings from that time, it's exactly the Korg MS-20 filters disturbing the sound. And I remember Hans-Joachim Roedelius saying that this machine made him sick. He got it right. J.
