Korg Monotron Delay

I just got this in the mail. It is an extremely cheap and small (!) unit that only runs on batteries and utilizes a 3.5 mm audio output and a 3.5 mm audio input (yes, the input audio is modified by the unit – this is not a normal pass-through).
So, how does it fare? Well, it is way more useful than I thought. It can create quite amazing intense space-sounds. I find the unit to be very powerful – especially for my setup. I have a drum machine that has six sounds, apart from the mixed output on a jack connector each sound has its own 3.5 mm mini jack output. Connecting something to an output removes the sound from the mix output. As such, you can select a sound and have it run through the Monotron Delay should you need to add an effect to the sound. This cheap little unit should not be underestimated. I am having great fun with it. I absolutely love space sounds!
