Love my Sx-240. Bought it in 1985. At the time the Roland Jupiters were the rage, but the Sx-240 blows away the Jupiters for sound synthesis and creation. Best short-lived keyboard secret. Never had a problem with it!

How the hell this synth carry the name Kawai ?

This is not a toy .

you can program it to extreme length of sounds.

From lush strings to a Killer Bass.

from warm sweeoing pads to the most bizzared leads.

Talking about analog heaven ?

Play with the SX-240 and you'll be there.

I love this synth.

I'll never sell it....hehehe

Best kept secret ? A very versatile synth with a typical 'deep' analog sound (and components) and a digital interface with jog dial and big alphanumeric (!) LED display. Awesome evolving pads, cutting leads and massive bass are all possible but do require some programming! 6 x 8 memory locations you can name, using the 61 b & w keys as an alphanumeric keyboard - a very neat and handy trick. Limited 1500 note max. sequencer, devided into 8 tracks that can be linked and also named.

Sonically it sits somewhere between the massive Jupiter-4, in particular in mono or unison mode, and a more American, aggresive kind of sound but it is also capable of almost DX-like FM sounds, thanks to the powerful Ring Mod.

If you are looking for an all-around analog workhorse polysynth with Midi on a limited budget the SX-240 is a pretty good choice. At today's prices they are a steal and i predict their value will appreciate considerably once the marketplace runs out of servicable MemoryMoogs and Jupiters...

One thing to add, The reason this Great Full Editable Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer did not get so popular are: 1. Kawai name is not "ROLAND" if you know what I mean... ( Funny fact is that KAWAI did not designed it at all)

2. It came out in the "Digital Synth revolution" times. In other words: " Too Late For The Party".

By the way, You have 64 patches that can be saved on tape. Full back panel plugs/switches/midi and you can name your patches with real cool electronic letters, using only the 61 keys. How sweet it is. A 5 out of 5. and an Extra ( + ) for today's prices... Play and Program one if you see it.

Peace to you all, my brothers.
