How Good Can A Cheap Toy Synth Sound?

Gakken SX-150 Gets MIDI, Sounds Pretty Massive      23/11/09

How good can a $54.95 plastic synth sound?

Check out the video demo above for an audio demo of an SX-150 Analog Synthesizer Kit that's been modified for MIDI control.

The SX-150 is a battery-powered toy synth kit, but it offers controls for LFO, pitch envelope, frequency cutoff, resonance, and attack/decay.

It doesn't have MIDI built-in, but it's a popular mod.

Pricing and Availability

The SX-150 is available for $54.95 via Maker Shed.
