I just got one of these, and I can't wait to hack the thing up! :mrgreen:
Monotrons seem to be little legends already. Stupid cheap, analogue, sounds good and it rather looks like Korg actually want people to mod them?!
I say that because the PCB is already conveniently labelled with handy CV points, AND, Korg just published the schematics for it, which im sure will be an interesting view for some people around here?http://www.korg-datastorage.jp/Manual/monotron_sch.pdf
Anyone else got one and been modding them?
I've got two now, and have the intention of combining them into a single two oscillator synth. I found that schematic link this morning in another forum, and needless to say I was very glad to see it! It'll save me TONS of time trying to trace the circuit, since it's all surface mount components on at least a double-sided board. A lot of traces go underneath the pots also.
I hope I'm not missing something obvious on this schematic, it's been a long day and my brain is tired, but it seems VCC and VA are the same thing?
I can't wait to get started, but I'm going to make myself at least get my x0x build completed enough to start running the planned semiconductor experiments.
