The StyloBuzz Synth by RareBeasts

"This is the StyloBuzz synth. Now available in my Etsy store."

"The StyloBuzz is a small experimental handmade synth that is played with a stylus attached to a wire, when the wire touches one of the keyboard pads on the PCB a note is played.

If you want to hear what the StyloBuzz sounds like, I have uploaded a small YouTube video:

Stylus: The stylus is pressed on one of the 13 keyboard pads to play a note.

Mode select: The mode is changed by pressing the S2 button and cycles through the 5 modes back to 1. The mode levels are adjusted using the vr2 potentiometer.
1. Frequency: Shifts the frequency up or down.
2. Sweep Size: Controls the amount the frequency will shift up and down.
3. Sweep intensity: Controls how quickly the sweep frequency will change.
4. Chopper intensity: Changes how quickly the note is strobed.
5. Note Length: Change the length of the note.

The output is via a 3.5mm stereo socket which can be plugged into earphones, a computer sound card, mixer or amplifier.

*Please note a screw driver is required to fit the battery.

If you would like to build your own feel free, I have included the instructions here.

I hope that gives you a basic idea about how the StyloBuzz works, if you have any questions about it please feel free to convo me.

Happy noise making,
