Kawai SX-240
(Teisco SX-240)

 



 


There are several reasons why in my view the Kawai SX-240 is one of the most unique models in the history of synths. The looks & design is just pure eye-candy. This must be the fanciest LCD and character / symbol interface arrangement you'll ever see. Next: the craftsmanship and the bodywork is top-notch and just begs you to caress it. And last but not least, the sound is so classy & cultured, especially with its ensemble effect. Very lush & spacey. I'll give you a broader look at the depth of its engine;

8 voices of polyphony, saw wave, pulse wave / pulse wave with modulated width, suboscillator, brass oscillator, pulse wave DCO 2, ring modulating, sequencer, portamento, separate envelopes for filter and amplifier, highpass filter, lowpass filter with keyboard tracking and control by pitchbender, awesome chorus, dual mode (playing 2 patches simultaneously), split mode (playing 2 patches on two sections of the keyboard), entering the characters on the LCD via the keyboard, tape interface, MIDI - now didn't we get too much?

The SX-240 is one of these synths you come across once every 5 years and, unfortunately, the owner loves it so much he doesn't want to sell it. And even though the sound is kind of juvenile and leaning toward brass-string type patches, its personality really deserves every love.
 


8 głosów, piła, fala pulsacyjna / fala pulsacyjna podlegająca wypełnieniu / suboscylator / oscylator brassowy / drugi oscylator (fala pulsacyjna), modulacja pierścieniowa, sekwencer, portamento, oddzielne obwiednie dla filtra i wzmacniacza, filtr górnoprzepustowy, filtr dolnoprzepustowy z keyboard trackingiem i kontrolowalny przez pitchbender, niesamowity chorus, tryb dual ( gra 2 barwy na raz), tryb split (gra 2 barwy w 2 częściach klawiatury), wpisywanie na LCD liter z klawiatury, interfejs magnetofonowy, MIDI - czy czasem nie dostajemy za dużo ? No i jeszcze ten bajerancki wygląd i najbardziej odjechany wyświetlacz jaki widziałem. I specyficzne, unikatowe brzmienie stringów i organów. Jeden z tych modeli, na które wpadasz raz na 5 lat i niestety nie możesz go kupić, bo łączy go z właścicielem dozgonna miłość. Trzeba przyznać, że jego pierwszorzędne brzmienie naprawdę zasługuje na każdą miłość.
