Yeah, it's not the lack of MIDI that bugs me it's the lack monotron interconnectivity! I woulda paid more for a super noisy "toy" modular.

Sweet.. that's settled.

So anyone figure out how to turn off the OSC yet? So this thing can be a useful sequencer/filter?

Revive.

Curious to know how other monotribe users find the raw waveforms. The triangle wave seemed much buzzier than expected and looking at it it rises to a peak then there's a steep drop off to about 2/3 amplitude followed by a decay more like the rise angle. The square also - the top edge has a steady decline and the bottom rises. Is that just how it is? The rawness is fine for what it is but a shame not to have a cleaner triangle without filtering it - it's more like a jagged mountain wave.

What was the survey question? I missed it.

The irony.

Would you care to inspect some waveforms?

Sure as long as we can look at the same waveforms from a monotron, MS-10 and MS-20 to compare them. I'll lay odds they aren't perfect triangles or squares either.
