Limited, but fun! submitted by bfields on September 20, 2012, 9:41pm Of the three monotron models, this was my favorite to play with!

You can get a lot of sounds from the small number of knobs, from very noisy to something that could carry a tune.

It's possible to play a mostly-accurate tune on the keyboard with some practice, or have fun sliding or wiggling your finger around.

It's more fun if you have on hand some miniplug patch cables (and maybe miniplug-to-1/4" adapters?), so you can plug other stuff into it. (Might be nice if the library could include something like that.)

The headphone jack has a pretty annoying hiss.

Much more pleasant than similar instruments submitted by willow on August 3, 2014, 11:55am I found this much quieter and pleasant in tones than other similar instruments offered by the library, most specifically the Pocket Piano, which was quite shrill and gave me an instant headache. This one was weird-sounding but never got to the unpleasant zone.

Super fun submitted by KOH on August 13, 2017, 10:16am Fun to just mess around with or use with other instrumentation

Monotron submitted by JY 2005 on August 31, 2018, 11:36pm Almost like a small keyboard.
