"K.K. Synth" (けけトロニカ, K.K. Tronica) is a song by K.K. Slider in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. As the song title implies, the synthesizer is the main instrument played in the song. The song appears to be based on the works of late 1960's and 1970's European electronic artists such as Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Brian Eno, and Jean-Michel Jarre, featuring slow, ambient synthesizer riffs and pops that contrast "organic" and "artificial" sounds. The song also bears noticeable similarities to the 1981 song "Pure Jam" by Japanese band Yellow Magic Orchestra. K.K. Synth is frequently described as unnerving due to its frequent use of high-pitched, juddering tones combined with its slow tempo, though many also state that the song sounds sad or even soothing.

This song is owned by Cheri, Claudia, Cleo and Piper (both in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo).
