Korg Monotribe (exposed)

Korg has released pictures of a new product called the “korg Monotribe”. Based on the name, it sounds like some sort of cross-breeding of the Korg Monotron and Korg Electribe. The picture seems to confirm this:

Information is sketchy, but it looks like it’s got some drum functionality (synth, kick, box, hi-hat) , a sequencer and some other functions.

It doesn’t appear to have MIDI, but does have a sync jack.
