I have never seen or heard a worse toy except for one of those pocket sized things. I had to tear out the speaker to make an output!! That's how horrible this is. But it is classic. It does have controls called the voice variator which screw with the sounds. Using very non-technical terms as your guide you can change the envelope (short and long buttons) and the overtones (bright and mellow). There fore rendering this piece of garbage usable--once you add an output. Its simply bad, but cute like an SK-1.

Comments About the Sounds:
This is honestly the worst sounding toy I have ever heard in my life.
