Control the Korg monotribe's tempo with your iPhone! SyncKontrol offers owners of Korg's monotribe Analogue Ribbon Station precise tempo control, plus the ability to sync their monotribe to WIST (Wireless sync) enabled apps! SyncKontrol allows you to control the tempo and start/pause of the monotribe Analogue Ribbon Station via the audio output of your iPhone. The app also offers Tap Tempo, a Swing function, and WIST (Wireless Sync-Start Technology) to sync monotribe to WIST-enabled apps such as Korg's iMS20, iELECTRIBE and iELECTRIBE Gorillaz™ Edition. In addition, this application receives sync from Mac based DAW software by receiving MIDI clock and play/stop commands via Wireless Network MIDI*. Korg's monotribe is a new form of synthesizer that packs an amazing array of features and technology into its compact body. The monotribe shares the analog synthesizer voice of the in-demand Korg monotron, yet quickly delves deeper into the rich, organic, and often chaotic world of analog synthesis. In addition to analog synthesis, monotribe brings together intuitive ease of use and a three-part discrete analog rhythm section, plus the proven appeal of Electribe-style sequencing. Complete with a built-in speaker and battery power, monotribe is self-contained and highly portable. [Specifications] Sequencer Section: • Tempo : 20.0 – 999.9 BPM • Tap tempo • Swing function : 50 – 75% Other: • Supports WIST (Wireless Sync-Start Technology) * Wireless Network MIDI function is still new and developing technology and therefore there are no guarantees concerning stability which can be heavily affected by traffic over the wireless network. Note : mini jack cable is necessary to connect iPhone and monotribe. Follow us on: ● Facebook : ● Twitter :



  • it kills my battery!

    By llerbesto
    Tried the app and worked fine but later I saw the app was running on the background non stop after closing it and it drained my battery for about 7 hours , someone needs to fix that.
  • Decent app but the swing

    By Brennanib
    The sync ability is awesome and the fact it can give the volca swing is awesome but give us some different types of swing this one is almost useless
  • WIST does not work in iOS8 ... FIX please!!!

    By PO-12
    This exactly what I need to close the gap between my TA Pocket Operators and my midi clock, and though it can control tempo and sync to the POs just fine, WIST doesn't work with iOS8 on an iPhone 6. Could be so great for so many products beyond the monotribe and volcas, if only WIST worked I'd give this 5 stars!!! PLEASE FIX
  • Crashes 8.2

    By Mr. Millermaier
    Would be great but seems I crash in iOS 8.2 once WIST is selected
  • iOS 8 / iPhone 6 issue?

    By wee warrior
    When pressing the WIST button nothing happens and the app becomes unresponsive. Controlling tempo and swing in volca beats works fine (until you want to engage WIST)
  • Please Update This App

    By AlexSherice
    I like it. But add keypad support so you can punch in a new tempo, hit enter or play and bam the tempo changes. for example say you are at 320bpm PinkFloyd (On the Run) and want to change to 140bpm (standard dance tempo) The apps wheel is slow and clumsy for live use to make this change. @korg #korg #korgsyncapp
  • Needs fine tuning

    By Epignosis567
    The bpm setting needs the option of fine tuning, and the tap tempo feature needs an optional "average" setting to dial in the tempo quicker.
  • Huge battery drainer!

    By DJ Finish Him
    Be sure to force quit this app when you're not using it, because otherwise it will sap all the juice from your battery. Not sure why it does this but I've tested it on multiple iDevices and they all suffer the same fate. Any hope for an update that remedies this issue?
  • It has midi clock

    By Djbombsquad
    Haha you ppl are silly you can get midi clock thru sync kontrol, not WIST without opening up or saudering or buying any adapters, you just need an idevice, the app and..... Ha you figure the rest out I had to, I NO LIE! PS dear KORG the WIST aspect of this app and in every app is a joke. It's a novel idea, yeah it's fun to sync up your apps with hardware (monotribe) for about 45 seconds before the audio strays Useless for LIVE, major fail. Luckily this has slave clock! EVERY MUSIC APP NEEDS CLOCK Yeah I'm talking to you FINGERLAB none of this start sync BS
  • Works for me... Love it

    By Eve Severe
    I have been using this since November and it it works great. It is a must have for anyone with a Monotribe that is trying to sync up with other band members!! My buddy and I synced our Monotribes together and controlled them with this app and had no problems!!! To the person who is griping about midi controls on the Monotribe-- you can buy a midi adapter kit for about 120 bux and take your Tribe apart and put the midi controller in. A pain but it will give you midi!! This app does everything I need it to do. It should however let people know about updates to their Monotribes. I updated my Monotribe to 2.0 about two months ago but if this app happened to drop a reminder that would be fabulous!! Lol.. There is no reason not to get this app of you own a Monotribe.
