The New Stylophone is a Full Analog Monosynth

You may recall that the Stylophone name, ( the cool little toy synth made famous by Kraftwerk and... er... Rolf Harris... ) recently surfaced again with a cool stylophone beatbox.  Now manufacturer Dubreq brings things up another notch with the release of the Stylophone S2, which they describe as a "serious British-made analogue synth".  The synth has a suggested retail price of around $479 (yikes).

Here are the features:

  • All metal construction
  • Portable, only 308mm X 120mm X 26mm and less than 1kg
  • 37 note (3 octave) keyboard, with +/-2 octaves of OCTAVE shift
  • Monophonic keyboard works with wire-free stylus (included) or finger touch
  • All analogue signal path
  • Classic British 12dB/octave state-variable filter
  • Dual all-transistor voltage controlled oscillators.
  • Sub-oscillators for incredibly fat-bass
  • Aux. input (to use the filter and envelope generator as effects)
  • Eight waveform LFO (low frequency oscillator) with 14 octave range
  • 4x AA cell operation or external DC (mains adapter not included)
  • Main output: 1/4" jack-socket
  • Use internal speaker or headphone amplifier (3.5mm headphone jack)
  • CVI (Control Voltage Input) and Trigger via 3.5mm jack sockets
  • Unique illuminated speaker detail spins to show LFO speed
