Miep and Kawaii SX-240

Our old friend Miep is back, this time with a vintage Kawaii SX-240 synthesizer. Submitted by Dennis Matana.

The SX-240 was a polyphonic analog synthesizer released in 1984 and is similar in many ways to the Roland Juno 60. But it did have its own distinct sound. Plus, it had MIDI and a nice display for loading and saving patches. It was overshadowed by the similar synths from Roland and Korg, and also came at the moment in the early-to-mid 1980s as analog synthesizers were falling out of favor compared to digital synthesizers (FM and sampling). They are quite rare these days, and Miep is lucky to have one.
