The DynaMike was a children's toy effect by Bandai. Surprisingly, it was used professionally by both Coldcut and LFO.
I bought it in a shop in New York. It's red and looks like a cross between a microphone and a sax, and it's for kids to make noises like spacemen really — but you can get some of the most outrageous sounds out of it.
— More, Coldcut, 1990
We might just use transposed-down voices sounding weird, using the pitch-shift on the SPX50D or that willy thing. It's a kid's toy from Argos. DynaMike, I think it's called. It only costs £25, but it's got up and down pitch and a flanger effect.
