I've owned an SX1000 for about ten years now, I used it on my last album

and I'll use it on future albums. It is pointless trying to compare it to

other synths because the SX1000 is unique. OK, so the knobs are crap and it

has no memory or CV inputs, but it was never intended to be a high-end

synth. I have recently fitted a Kenton Electronics CV interface which I

link up to a Kenton ProSolo MIDI-to-CV unit, and it has given the SX a new

lease of life. The CV kit actually replaces the oscillator with one which sounds

even fatter AND gives you an extra octave below and above the original,

it also allows you to alter the filter via MIDI. My opinion is that if you

think the SX1000 is crap then you haven't bothered to experiment with it

- it's too easy to be put off by those crap knobs! Remember, a bad workman

always blames his tools.

Sorry this is probably the thinnest , weediest synth of all time. Its only a single Oscillator and olny good at making clanger noises. Only slight bonus is the inclusion of both pink and white noise.

Without a doubt, the worst non-preset monosynth designed by mankind (in fact All non-Jen preset ones beat it too, even other Italian ones!), The only saving grace is that the Knobs are almost the same as on EMS gear and look identical, so If you`ve got a VCS3 with knobs missing..... also the keys fit other Italian Synths too, the Pots may come in useful as may chips etc.. £25 (about all its worth) ain`t bad for all those bits but kept in one piece it SUX.. not even worth 1-point

I don't agree with you, Stevie. I think the sx1000 is a great little synth

for it's price. It can make brilliant sounds for a one osc machine, and is

certainly worth the $120. If you get a mod done by Analogue Solutions it

gains cv/gate inputs (costs about $75) which lets you sequence it easily.

You can also mod it for external input to the filter very easily which is

always useful

All in all it's a sexy little thing with nice colorful pots

Aha, you numptees, you all missing da point. Not only is this the top boss fattest little mono I ever bought, cause its so cheap, mine cost $30, you dont mind so much getting in the back an fiddlin with da pots. What so ? I hear you fink ? Well, I set up a pseudo appregiator, don't ask me how, but I did it ? Top Secret an that, an it sounds absafuknlootli fanatstic. Cocked hat, every other mono synth knocked into. And I used it live last Satday nite on Radio to rapturous applause. Eat shite ye mockers of excellence. Futcha Sounda Scotland, eh ? Jobs a good un.
