Remco Sound FX Machine 1979
Panzer Party-Erwin Rommel Wants Your Quarters

The Remco Electronic Sound FX machine was based on the Texas Instruments SN76477 analog sound effects chip. This little late-1970s integrated circuit generated square and noise waves that could be modulated to create all manner of bleeps, bloops, buzzes and auditory insanity. It’s perhaps most famous as the sound chip used in the arcade version of Space Invaders.

Several toy makers seized on its simple design and $3 price tag, but Remco went a step further by using it to create a bizarre battery-powered sound effects machine capable of generating an enormous range of parent-repellent sounds. The booklet includes pages of strange patch settings.
