Monotron Analogue Ribbon Synthesizer: Review

The Monotron Analogue Ribbon Synthesizer is developed by KORG.  It’s a pocket size synthesizer, which can be carried in a pocket for on the go music creations.  The Monotron synthesizer offers professional sounds at novice levels.  I have never used a synthesizer but within a few minutes I was able to connect the synthesizer to my ipad and create music tracks.  It’s a great deal of fun to say the least.  The Monotron can create professional sounds without a great deal of knowledge about mixing or synthesizing.
