To me, if there's no MIDI or CV input, it's just a noise box toy, not an instrument I can play.

I know it's a narrow minded view of these kits, but that's where I draw the line in the sand.

Agreed. Put that money towards something better.

Got a gakken, which is pretty much the same thing, and it sits idle in its box. At least the gakken was cheaper!

Toys for kiddies. Reminds me of the Korg junk. They can sell these at "Toys R Us" because that is about what they are worth.

Why not just save your money and buy a good computer? That way, you can take full advantage of software synths and sequencers.

This toy is utter crap. I agree with everyone else who posted here.

Do we need another tiny ribbon to play? I just wonder why with so many interesting products to choose from these days how a company would invest resources into making another toy box unless it was destined for the toy stores. So, this is clearly not intended for this audience. At least the Korg stuff offers Sync capabilities.

This has been released by Japanese DIY Mag Gakken in 2008 already. You can still order copies for 6000Yen. The Synth stopped working after one year, for me. Rather weak Oscillator, ok Filter. Get a Korg monotribe instead. WAY better.
