TherapSid has a kid!

Sadly TherapKID is discontinued due to part unavailability. 

TherapKid is a powerful & affordable duo-phonic synthesizer inspired by the mighty therapSid.



The first generation of SID (6581) had a wonderful gritty distorted filter but the later 8580 had a much stronger filter (more resonance). TherapKid offers a digital take on the best of both worlds with a strong filter resonance and 6581-like gritty tone.

  • Set the volume of the 8 waveforms independently*

  • Tune each of the 8 waveforms independently (chords, drones!)*

  • Sine wave for pure tones and deep sub bass*

  • Muti-mode arpeggiator

  • Ring modulator

  • Duophonic or monophonic modes

  • Hybrid 6581/8580 inspired multimode filter (Low pass, High pass, Band Pass, Notch)

  • Dual therapSid style LFO with up to 48 connections that can be made a a push of a button.

  • 50 Preset memory with wild random preset generator


  • Sturdy powder-coated steel case

  • Hardware MIDI via included 3.5mm >Din5 cable (MIDI Type A)

  • USB Powered (can be battery powered with a USB battery brick)


Monophonic, Duophonic, Chords & Drones

TherapKid has 2 voices, each voice consisting of 4 oscillators.

In duophonic mode you can play 2 notes at once, in mono mode you can detune them. But you can take things further by detuning each of the oscillators individually to form chords or drones.


Q: What's the audio output type? What cables should I use

A: therapKid's output is MONO T/S 3.5mm.

Headphones should not be used - only left side will had sound!

Q: What type of MIDI pinout does therapKid use

A: TYPE A (like Korg). A 3.5mm male to DIN5 male cable is included



While the wavetables are 8Bit, they are processed by a powerful 96MHz 32BIT processor and put out of a 16BIT DAC with oversampling and filtering. This formula of retro sound generated by modern hardware allows for plenty of summing headroom, a rich sounding filter, and complex modulations.
