The Korg Monotribe. Quite likely the most fun it is possible to have spending under £200 without breaking the law.
With the abundance of affordable, analogue clones of classic kit out there, a whole new generation of music-makers are able to get those classic sounds without having to get their mitts on expensive, hard-to-obtain, ridiculously over-priced and unreliable bits of so-called ‘classic’ hardware. Take the MFB-522 and Mode Machines x0xb0x for example. To get your hands on a ‘real’ TB303 and TR808 would be the best part of £4k and here we have a demonstration showing that you can have those sounds for a fraction of the cost. In fact, the figure that could be saved might be as large as £3,200 and we reckon that that’s where the smart money will go.

They are also remarkably generous with their giveaways and this particular promotion is a biggie and no mistake. Basically, the deal is that when you buy a Universal Audio LA-610 mk2 channel strip (that’s a classic piece of studio hardware for anyone not in the know) then you’ll get either a UAD Satellite Duo or UAD PCI Duo totally free. Yep, that’s right, free as in gratis, de nada, hee-haw, you pay nothing! Couple that with the fact that you get a bundle of software free of charge with either the UAD Satellite or PCI accelerator cards if you register today and you have a Universal Audio mega-deal! Oh, and there’s also some more information on the deal at the UAD site here and you can buy the LA-610 right here.
