KAWAI SX-240 | Analog Synthesizer 1985 | HD DEMO


"(c) 2020 by AnalogAudio1

Synthesizer demo of the analog synthesizer Kawai SX-240 from 1985.

I used an original Korg SDD-3000 for delay effects. All the sounds were programmed by me.

The Kawai SX-240 is a nice fully programmable polysynth with interesting analog sounds. Decent Japanese quality from the mid eighties era.
It has MIDI, 2 DCOs, 1 LFO, lowpass filters, 1 Highpass filter, 2 ADSR envelopes and noise. Ensemble effect (chorus), which make full string sounds possible. Useful unisono modes like Poly-8, Poly-4 or monophonic. Split and Layer capabilities. Built in sequencer. The filters are based on SSM chips as the Korg Polysix. Very underrated, it's capable of excellent synth sounds!"
