Use Pitch Correction in Logic Pro to tune, play and record synth lead lines with the incredible sounding minature analogue monosynth from Korg, the Monotron
Introduced at Musikmesse 2010, the Korg Monotron has made quite an impact on the music industry for such a small device. Subject to a multitude of hacker mods, with one modder getting through at least 10 before perfecting his pitch CV hack, the Monotron has a beautifully rich (albeit a little noisy) output and sits really well in mixes when recorded.
The main issue with using the Monotron within tracks is the fact that the ribbon has smooth intonation between each note, meaning that sliding your finger along the ribbon results in a glide effect rather than being akin to running your finger up the keys on a keyboard. Although having it's (very strong) merits, the ribbon can be a little frustrating to actually perform a lead line, as note accuracy is bordering on impossible.
This Logic Cafe video tutorial shows a quick and easy way to use the Pitch Correction plugin in Logic Pro to make the Monotron a versatile tuned analogue synthesizer to use in your tracks. Using this method, you can play any scale you like with it without ever having to open the synth up and probe it with your soldering iron...
