The Monotron mini analog synthesizer is a simple but sweet-sounding little synth that sports a few basic features that give a nod to us hardware hacker-folk. In the above vid, I merely scratch the surface of how this little guy could be put to creative use – even still, I had a lot of fun.

It’s great to see how a schematic and a few clearly marked solder pads can get people making & modding with hardware. Check out beatnic, 2CV, and Fengland‘s work for more examples – and of course the many SX-150 hacks & mods, if you haven’t already.
