‘thainmlh’ explores making Berlin School style synth music using a couple of Korg Monotribe synthesizers and a pair of Electro Harmonix Memory Toy analog delay pedals, background video description below:
A follow up to my video “Korg Monotribe x2 – Berlin School Example” which has had over 50,000 views at this point (much to my surprise…)
Again we use two Korg Monotribe Analog Synthesizers (with built in sequencers) slaved together for 1970’s style Berlin School sequences, This time, it is a “how to” in an attempt to answer the many questions posted to the original video. (This has higher audio quality)

This is something i am experimenting with. I’m creating a techno track and thought why not start here!
The Spinto Band – Shake It Off (Korg Remix feat. MS-20 Mini, Monotribe, Monotron, microKORG & more!)
All you can eat KORG;
Inspired by the new MS-20 Mini, our friends in The Spinto Band recently embarked on a Korg-based remix project of their infectious single, “Shake It Off”, taken from their latest LP, “Cool Cocoon”. Making use of MS-20 Mini, Monotron Delay, Monotron Duo, Monotribe and plenty more from the Korg family, they offer a unique spin on their sound!

A short jam shot on location while staying in Shonan , during the recent ASP Japan/Murasaki Shonan Open. The KORG Volcas are small enough to take anywhere, and versatile enough to make a complete track using only these small love units. Close the laptop , and tweak out for maximum analog satisfaction…

Background video description:
Korg recently released an update to the monotribe OS and there has been a lot of chatter on the Muffwiggler forum (click the link for details on where to get the OS, how to install it and enable the CV/Gate)
The main drawback is that in order to get this to work you need a 4 pin mini jack. I dont have any of those around so I figured I’d just add some jacks.
Here’s a few pics of the install and solder points, and a quick video demo of the monotribe being driven by a ModSeq (sorry about the camera audio).
Some points to note, first I wired up also for CV/Gate output, this is not yet fully working, I’m hoping it will in the future so I figured I’d wire it up while i was there. The Gate out does work at least (its just the sync out really)
It also seems that the sync in jack is switching, so that if there isn’t a jack inserted to sync in then you wont be able to advance the sequencer with the gate in (like you could with the cable) The work around for this is that you can use the gate out (or the sync out jack) to clock your external seq then just mult that to an envelope and send it all back to the monotribe cv/gate ins. I may check this out later to see if I can add a switch.
Composed by Martin Denny.
Use, KORG monotribe 8, SDD-1000, Doepfer Schaltwerk.
Full CV/Gate controlled.
In this sinister little piece the Monotribe makes a brief appearance (as a drum machine only) receiving gate signals from the MiniBrute. Apart from this the MiniBrute rules supreme over the rest of the tracks
Always up for a good fight
This video features John Keston and Lucas Melchior improvising on two synched up Korg Monotribes. The Korg NanoKontrol is being used to apply swing to the sync signal as well as control delays and filters. The two electronic musicians are teaching a class, titled “Drum Machines,” starting January 17, 2013 at the Ableton certified training center Slam Academy in Minneapolis.
