Korg is bringing back the days of analog in a major way with the upcoming Monotribe. after the huge success of the Monotron, this takes the idea of a ribbon controlled analog synth even further with classic analog compontents (for WAY more sound shaping control), vintage MS-10/20 filter, internal analog drums, AND an 8 step sequencer. talk about a no brainer! No MIDI on it, but you can link several Monotribes together (and other equipment) via the sync jacks and jam out. check the videos below to see this bad boy in action:
