Korg Monotribe Version 2

The Korg Monotribe is a pretty remarkable groove box: monophonic analog synthesizer – small drum machine – step sequencer … all in one.

Korg released a major update (Version 2) of the Monotribe Operating System a few months ago. The new features are very useful, even if they probably won’t “take your playing to a new dimension“, as Korg claims. A yellow overlay is available that maps out the new features found in the V2 upgrade, and a self-printable version of the overlay is for download at the Korg website.

Roland Jupiter-80 V2 – new Low Pass Filters

Roland Jupiter-80 V2 - three new Low Pass Filters

Version 2 adds three more Low Pass Filters to Roland’s Jupiter-80. The internal EFXs are no longer limited to parallel routing, as Version 2 additionaly brings serial routing.

We recorded four audiofiles to compare the different Low Pass Filters. The settings are moderate and with the exception of the filter mode all parameters are the same in all four audiodemos. No EFX used.

Roland Jupiter-80 V2 - now with serial and parallel EFX routing
