Cool Find: The Raconteurs Signature S-1 Stylophone (2008 Tour Item)

video upload by Musical Miscellany

You can find pics of one previously posted here.

"This was a cool pawn shop find. Back in 2008, The Raconteurs sold some limited edition S-1 Stylophones at their live shows. It's essentially a 2007 Stylophone Reissue with a special black & copper finish. The original would've included some tour memorabilia but this one didn't have it.

video upload by CatSynth TV

"A short performance by Amanda from CatSynth on the new Stylophone Theremin. This instrument is actually a combination of a theremin-like voice controlled by the antenna, and a second voice controlled by the button on slider on the unit, more like an Ondes Martenot."

Stylophone's Super Affordable Theremin & CPM DS-2 Drone Synth | NAMM 2024

video upload by Reverb

"For the last 40 years, things at the Stylophone brand have been all about, well, stylophones. But this year, the company is branching into new territory. In the video above, Fess stops by the Stylophone booth for a look at the new (and quite affordable) theremin and drone synth on offer for 2024. See more about NAMM 2024 on Reverb"

NAMM 2024 - Stylophone - CPM-DS2 - Theremin

video upload by sonicstate

"At NAMM 2024, Matt from Stylophone showcased the company's lineup of classic products, including a pink Stylophone, Beat, Gen X1, and their newest product, the CPM-DS2, a compact portable modular drone synthesizer. The CPM-DS2 features two voices with a resonant filter and is designed for creating elongated evolving drones. It lacks VCAs and envelopes, but the synthesizer wrangles a lot of fun and flexibility from its main LFO for modulating waveforms, pitch, and filter frequency. It can also be played without plugging anything in, generating notes and melodies from within. The CPM-DS2 can be powered by batteries, external power, or integrated into a Eurorack system.

In addition to the CPM-DS2, Stylophone also displayed their Theremin. The Theremin can be played using its antenna or a slider, offering continuous control and an octave range. It also includes built-in delay effects. Both the CPM-DS2 and theremin are available for pre-order on the Stylophone website, with notifications being sent to customers when the products are ready to ship. While there isn't an exact release date for the theremin, it is expected to arrive within a couple of months.

CPM-DS2 Available to preorder. Price: 209 GBP. 239 Euros. 259 USD.

Theremin Available to preorder. Price: 90 GBP. 100 Euros. 110 USD."

PhonicBloom GechoLogic Loopstyler

video upload by Gecho Loopsynth

"After a lot of prototyping, we're finally happy with the circuit, and here are its first sounds! :) We've opened preorders at [priced at €175 +VAT] and manufacturing will commence shortly, our favourite PCB factory is happy with the blueprints and all components are in stock. If you are interested in technical details and the development journey, check

This demo shows a very basic configuration: 4 samples across 4 rows of pads, sharing the same octave and mode. After activating the arpeggiator, you can change key, octave, mode, or instrument that the arpeggiator controls. We also hear complaints about incorrectly entered command sequence; this prototype lacks texts on some pads, and LED lights are not yet showing cues about what is going on, which makes it harder to control. An annotated video explaining these controls in detail, will be recorded once the first production unit arrives from the factory."

"The Loopstyler is a powerful pocket synthesizer capable of running multiple sound engines and effects at once. It can handle a large amount of samples on the SD card, limited only by the card capacity. Browse and organize them easily to be used in patches, play them back with at least 32‑voices polyphony, smooth time stretching and pitch shifting.

You can play the Loopstyler in different ways: like the classic Stylophone, or in a tape loop emulation mode, or by programming it using the multitrack sequencer. Apart from the sampled sounds, it runs other sound engines, such as FM, Karplus‑Strong, granular and subtractive synthesis. The usual suite of effects can be applied per voice or globally. A single microphone and monophonic line input allow for sampling possibilities (you can import stereo samples easily via the SD card).

Designed to fit snugly in your pocket, Loopstyler is the source of endless hours of fun anywhere you go. And of course, everything you play can be recorded internally, so nothing is lost."

Stylophone Beat, East Beast, Kawai K1m Jam

video upload by ChrisLody

"Full Disclosure: I occasionally take on freelance work at Dubreq (they make Stylophones) on an hourly rate producing video content. This video wasn't paid for directly but as a result of my work with Dubreq it is marked as Paid Promotion

Right time for a weird jam! I've been ridiculously busy recently with my day job and music related work so can barely justify taking time off to make this (this is product endorsement which is about as close as I can get to time off at the moment 😅), but I risk my channel turning into wall to wall Sonicware news (more of that to come) so I'm trying to find time for a bit of silliness like this!

Dubreq sent me the Stylophone Beat a few weeks back and I've been having some fun with it. For such an inexpensive machine it has surprisingly features. It can play 4 different kits, 4 different bass sound, 4x 32 step patterns, has some realtime playback effects like a filter sweep and pattern length (think stutter mode), patterns can be copied, elements muted etc, the stock sounds are well chosen, really quite good. There are limitations of course, the volume of each sound is fixed, there's no sync capability (although technically the LED flashes at 1ppq so it could be hacked) and the memory is wiped when it's powered down so make sure you record you work. One saving grace in that regard is that it goes into standby quite quickly so this Beat was left on all night with my rhythm programmed in so was still there the next day for me to continue work on. One small caveat is that the drum sequencer supports 16th note resolution but it seems the bass sequencer doesn't, you'll get 8th note recordings. It does support glide though as you may be able to tell from what I've made here. So all in all a fun little machine!

I also bought a Cre8audio East Beast recently and haven't had the chance to use it, so here it is used in the laziest way imaginable with the Stylophone Gen X-1 as a delay effect. It's a very capable little semi modular but I'm not using those features here. I also bought a Kawai K1 which used to belong to former Sonicware staff member Evan Sirchuk, so here's that too playing one of it's presets. That's a really bright sounding bit of kit and I wasn't sure what to use it for at first but it fits in nicely here. I don't even think I've used that Korg NanoKEY2 for anything yet either and I've had that for years!

Anyway, I don't know how I ended making such an odd sounding jam 😁"
