This teardown will help you to better hack and repair the KORG Monotron mini synt.
This battery powered synt is made of a real analog VCO a VCF and a LFO. The VCF is similar to the ancient KORG's classic MS-10 and MS-20. You can use the ribbon keyboard to create an incredible sound of the '70s .
There are a lot of infos on internet but this device deserves an appropriate space on IFIXIT
Only 4 PH1 screws
Note: Made in Japan !
Take care at the cables between two sides
Remove '''the flat cable''' from the ribbon controller to the pcb (pull with care using hands)
Remove the 2 ways connector for the speaker. Use hands (with care)
Take max care to the speaker controller. Easy to remove but difficult to re insert
Loudspeaker is glued to the enclosure
