Overall and awesome little toy, the envelope section is fun and cheezy to apply on either the sample or the 8 instrument/sounds onboard. A little tricky at first but a lot of fun if u can find one for a small amount of money $5-30 usually, Check Goodwill/Value Village they're teaming with weird stuff sometimes. Also its got a 1/8th output on it so its great to pop into a distortion pedal then into an amp or whatever for a full sound to it. Hopefully myself or someone else will do some small modifications to it, the only one that has been done is a large one to midify it and put it into a modular style really. If u see one, get it! Its weird and quirky and may be worth $$$ in a decade or so like the tb303

Hey, try this: sample a VERY short noise with your SK (like a scisors speed closing) and then loop it. Then you´ll find that the sound is continous due to the shot lenght of the loop (thats always go from start to end of the sound). Then apply the envelopes and you´ll get a raw polyphonic synth sound with the true dinamics of the SK amp envelope. You can edit the sound with the additive engine for a more wide sound palette. The idea is use a single-cycle wave (or a nearly short wave) to generate, by looping, a continous synth sound thats responds to the whole amp envelope without end before complete the volume evolution. If you pass the sound throu an analog filter (I use my Teisco S60f) then you get an hybrid polysynth with digital DCOs and a VCF (kinda the stuff you can get out of a Korg DSS1) You can hook a BOSS OC2 octave pedal to create a kind of sub oscillator thats phats the sound. Try it and please be creative with that kind of machines that have a lot of power waiting to be discovered. Trust me, I still use it and I have a Prophecy, ASRX, SP1200, AN1X and S60f.

As a musical instrument, it is indeed crap, but as a tool for doing crude and interesting things to otherwise ordinary sounds, the SK-1 is pretty damn cool. As with anything else, you get more out of it the more you use the thing and learn/ discover its functions.
