If you own a Korg Monotron/Monotribe compact analogue synth or are thinking about bagging one (or more) before the end of the year, then Korg want to hear what you can do with it/them! To be more specific, Korg want you to use your Monotron(s) and/or Monotribe to make some unique sound effects and/or background music. The best entries will be used to create the soundtrack and FX for a computer game 'mash-up video', due for release early next year.
Entries must be submitted no later than 31st December 2013 and the most exciting part is that the person who makes the best mini-sound library (as judged by Korg) will receive a special 50th anniversary MicroKorg Gold*!
* Please note that the MicroKorg Gold isn't made of actual gold!

Winners will be announced after 15th January 2014.
Both the Monotron and Monotribe are compact, affordable, true analogue synths with ribbon keyboards and a selection of hands-on controls for sculpting your sound. They also feature audio inputs for routing external sounds through their pure analogue filter!
The Monotron range (all currently available for less than £35) is made up of the original Monotron, the Monotron Delay (with built-in analogue tape echo) and the Monotron Duo (with a second analogue oscillator).
