The iconic Stylophone pocket keyboard, played by everyone from David Bowie to Kraftwerk to Orbital to Gotye, is getting the ‘pro’ treatment.
Dubreq Ltd is introducing the Stylophone S2 - a ‘fully spec?d’ analogue synthesizer, designed and built in the UK.
While the original Stylophone is a fun instrument, the Stylophone S2 offers much more sophisticated features, including dual analog oscillators, a state-variable filter, a flexible LFO and even control voltage inputs.
Here are the details:
- The Stylophone S2 features the traditional Stylophone metal keyboard, but 3 octaves long and playable with an included wire-free stylus or by finger touch.
- Portable (308mm X 120mm X 26mm and less than 1kg/2lbs in weight).
- +/- 2 octave shifter
- All analogue signal path
- British style 12dB/octave state-variable filter
- Dual all-transistor voltage controlled oscillators
- Sub-oscillators for ‘super-fat’ bass
- Eight waveform LFO with a 14 octave range
- An auxiliary-input to use the filter and envelope-generator for other instruments
- 1/4? output jack socket
- Internal speaker and headphone socket
- CV and Trigger input sockets.
