New Stylophone S2 Featured On Brett Domino’s ‘Beauty And A Beat’

Brett Domino, along with bandmate Steven Peavis, give the new Stylophone S2 analog synthesizer a workout on the Justin Bieber track, Beauty and a Beat.

The Stylophone S2 is described as a ‘fully spec’d’ analogue synthesizer. It’s making its big debut at the 2013 NAMM Show – but we’ve got details below.

  • 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.

The Stylophone S2 is priced at £299 UKP or $479 USD.

Domino’s Beauty and a Beat cover is available on iTunes.

  1. Very cool but as current exchange rates go this thing would be $480 US dollars! OUCH!
    I’d like to see a bit more about what it can do though.

  2. This thing looks like a lot of fun!

    My guess is that the street will be closer to $350-400, and at that price I could see getting one.

  3. Sounds a lot better than I thought it could. Still expensive compared to, say a Minibrue. Now if only it had CV out rather than in. It would make an interesting controller for a Eurorack system.
