not for synth work ,but i picked up about 40 of the kits, then i got
200 of the chips for about $1.55 each from a newark promo.

i used the 42 version for the udb's , using it as a wireless xmas
light controller driving ws2812 strips, with the esp8266 wifi boards.

the great thing is if you haven't used a psoc is being able to do a
verilog component and you basically end up with an almost add on
hardware interface, some people have issues with the ws2812 rgb led
strips, tight timing loops and faster cpus, but with this just make it
as a component and use it like you would uart/spi etc.

cypress creator is pretty good as well, its got a nice interface and
you can write all the code as a circuit for a lot of projects.
waveform generators are all easy to do.

it's programmed over uart after going into bootloader mode from the
mini psoc 5 on the lower half that you can snap off, or with the

the board just has one led and a switch, so its basically a breakout.

sorry can't speak to audio usefulness but as a cheap dev kit/break out
board its been great for me for other projects, definitely useful for
a lot of projects, and the price is hard to beat.  it doesn't have a
lot of the udb's so space is short, compared to the other PSOCs, 48Mhz
speed on the ARM.
