Press release follows:

"Introducing the Stylophone DS-2 Analog Drone Synthesizer, the first release in Stylophones new pro-audio Compact Portable Modular (CPM) range.

With two analog drone voices, filter cutoff and volume knobs for evolving and fading drones in and out. The Ultra LFO provides internal rhythmic modulation that enables dynamic waveform blending of the two analog oscillators and cadenced movement of the multimode filters.

Keep things musical by linking the pitch of the two analog oscillators to ensure everything stays harmoniously in tune, or hard sync them for even wilder sounds. Sonic vibes are further enhanced with the in-built vintage modulated delay as well as the option to add one of the eight vintage-inspired reverb algorithms.

This portable, stand-alone drone synth, doesn’t require any external connections to other equipment in order to make endless soundscapes, pulsating rhythms, and cosmic exploration.

Integration with studio and Eurorack equipment is possible through the twelve patch points as well as the ability to route signals to multiple places simultaneously for extra processing with the built-in speaker and headphone connection. Run sound sources from anything into the Aux input to take advantage of the built-in effects, creating a single hub for your music creations.

Use either mains, AA battery operation or mount it within a Eurorack case to play it anywhere. The Stylophone CPM DS-2 Analog Drone Synthesizer is an ideal companion for those seeking innovation in sound creation in the studio, on stage or on the go.

  1. Funny that they don’t say anything about dimensions or weight. With 6xAA batteries, it might be less compact than some other devices.

    1. The korg volcas take 6 AA batteries and are portable enough

  2. I’ve been patiently waiting for something analogue to plug my Stylophone into for delay/reverb effects, and now my 50 year wait is over : ) . . . my 350S is very excited.
