Variations of "meow" (it's particularly good at "mrrreow").

Pro tip: If you sprinkle catnip in the external input, it goes WILD! (I've heard from a reliable source that Deadmau5 does that in his live shows).

I saw this from another site. You don't get the monotron, but the price is pretty slick:

We have the MS-20 in the Pre-Order section of Home page. Everything in that category gets a 15% discount when you enter the "PreOrder15" coupon code, which brings it down to $509.15.

Oh noone has even said you can pass external audio through the filter. That's the point of the monotron. Even Liam Howlett has one.

I wonder if anyone modded their Monotrons/tribes/duos with different (better) output opamps...

I had a go on a Duo, the xmod sounds great, not as good as the dual Xmod on my M/P, but still great.

Didn't Rick Wakeman have a laugh about his minimoog picking up the radio during a concert? Saw it on YouTube somewhere.

I had an interface that picked up a classical radio station, very faint in the background.

The semi-modular monotron sounds remind me of this:

beatnic.jp : Monotron++
