The Katosizer was a follow-on project to the Structured Sound Synthesizer (SSSP) synthesizer. It was a microprogrammable synthesizer developed by John Kitamura that could be controlled using MIDI devices, such as a keyboard.  One of the most interesting aspects was that a user could program the synthesizer using an interactive graphical dataflow language, where nodes represented  physical devices and software signal processing modules, and arcs represented signal and control connections.
