This Synth Breeds Creativity.
McSharry, 08.11.2019
I've been using this machine for a few months now and it's intricacies never cease to amaze me.
I've been using Korg grooveboxes from the electribe series for years and this does everything those machines did, better and in a way that's much more user friendly. I can't possibly sing the praises of this synth within the word limit of this review but I'll try.

1. It's small and that's not a problem. It's easy to play once you get used to it and if you're a commuter this is hands down one of the best ways to pass time on a train.
2. The internal patches are beautiful and even if you don't like them, they're highly editable. And loading new samples from the 'op.fun' website is simple once you learn how.
3. Great as a makeshift drum machine for live jamming. The live effects make for dynamic sounding drum fills. Similarly, setting the synth to random can create really interesting loops.
4. The design is sleek and minimal and I love it. It's very impressive to me how they do so much with so few buttons and knobs. I thought working without a screen would be more difficult but It's very easy to navigate parameters once you learn what colour means what.

In conclusion,
there's so much you can say about this synth but most importantly, if you think it's the kind of thing you'd like and you've got the cash to spare, go for it. Maybe watch some Cuckoo videos.

Some cons ;
Limited midi capability without expansions.
Internal speaker is pretty bad but I use headphones or plug it into other synths mostly anyway.
No instruction manual (will be a con for some people but I loved that to be honest)

Inspiring device
Monotron, 19.06.2019
Really cool little device, very inspiring and addictive.

The factory sounds on the drums tracks are well designed, the synths are nice. They are many functions that allow to experiment and make patterns unpredictable (if you want to).
On top of that you have two tracks to control lights and visual! (and that is a first).
And last but not least awesome sequencer!

Pros:
-Super small and battery power, so you can bring it anywhere
-Inspiring
-Make music and control visual and lights with one machine
-It sounds very good: synths/effects/drums
-The machine feels good when touching it

Cons:
-Only two parameters can be tweaked on the synths track (in order to design the sound)
-Only 6 notes polyphony to sequence midi (on module track without module)
-Only 4 notes polyphony on chord track
-You cannot apply step components on the module track (without the module)
-Actual firmware has bugs: machine turns off, latency when switching projects (not great for live situation)
-Quality build: some parts like the rotaries or the feet seem very fragile. (rubber getting destroyed or rotaries getting out)

Overall it's a great mobile device and the firmware is still young so hopefully all bugs will be fixed.

The fact that there is no screen isn't a problem. I got used to it within a day and it really boosted my workflow and inspiration.

If you want a portable device two experiment with and record you ideas fast and be able to control visual and lights buy it!
