Monotribe has a trigger conversion option, if you already own one.

I've read a couple harsh reviews about the build, for example: http://fluxwithit.com/2013/01/28/korg-m ... d-testing/. Taking it with a grain of salt though, considering they also say the Monotron sounds "fatter" (a total WTF after watching the whole video with headphones). Can always replace the knobs too...

That's because the douche-wad has the high pass filter up for most of the video. :lol:

I think he was too glued to the Moog modular wall of doom to care about anything else. At least I would have.

erm, why would you need one? Just buy the Bassbott or whatever it's called. :idea:

Kinda stopped caring about Roland these days, they can keep making their useless c**p and I'll keep not buying it until something changes.

They've been investing heavily in a massive new fabrication plant for analogue components.

That is probably why there was a paper note on each wall saying DO NOT TOUCH!

AG was the demonstrator of the system..noone else got to play.
