I read it was a photoshop, which is good because I just got my Minibrute and don't need a new distraction as I learn how to use it.

No.

Why would Korg suddenly have mono output be on the right main out as opposed to having it be on the left out, for one thing...

Fake. But PLEASE someone from Korg take a look. Then add MIDI, multitimbrality and minikeys. Amen.

Looks fake.

If it was real Korg would be foolish not to include midi and a step sequencer with the Minibrute on the market.

They just need to combine two Monotribes, add MIDI and CV's, and have 2 versions: one with keyboard, one without.

Beware he is updating the image on the same link to address user feedback.. LOL

So when you say no Midi, it now has midi....

If only synth companies could update our synths this way...

Great mock up,

but why call it Maxi 'tribe'???

Surely Maxi 'tron' is the right name.

That's my thought exactly...
It should be called Maxitron :P


I don't like it that much...
The keyboard should be at least 2 and a half octaves, 2 octaves is just too little amount of keys..

I also think having effects like that wouldn't do it any good...
I rather not have effects like in old vintage monophonic synths and get it cheaper.
Especially since the effects don't appear to be programmable...

Other than that, with more keys it could be pretty good indeed.

We need someone to Photoshop this into a GC or Sweetwater catalog page. Retail price $650. If enough suckers place orders for it, maybe Korg will be embarrassed enough to just go ahead and make the damn thing already.

Even Maxitron doesn't seem right to me. From Monotron to Maxitron, but it is probably still monophonic. How about Polytron if it is polyphonic and "Monotron Max" if it is monophonic? Regardless, it is fake and whomever came up with it, gave it a bad name.

"Maxi" should be eliminated from all synth diction. Too many potential bad jokes!! LOL
Would be odd if Korg did something like this. They need to one up the MiniBrute, not try to replicate it.
I still think a modern MS20 could and should be in the works.

Apple got about 2 days' worth of jokes when the iPad came out.

Maybe No One Told Steve Jobs That “iPad” Sounded Like Delicate Sanitary Protection | Mediaite



Then it went away. So 'Maxi' is fine with me.

He needs to either remove the wide/narrow/key switch or add a ribbon strip somewhere too.

Hey wait... Is this a feature request thread for interesting photoshopped synths? If so, someone make that sucker full-sized with some serious firepower quick. This is a paying gig, I'm looking for someone who can photoshop on the level of an iPad ad for a possible fake synth release next week. $0.50 for the right person/image. PM me if interested...
