Stylophone S2 arriving today?

This was a bit of a shock really. I know that mobile stuff is really gaining ground, but I hadn't seen this coming. Here's the details (via Matrixsynth):

The S2 features the famous Stylophone metal keyboard, now 3 octaves long andplayable with the included wire-free stylus or by finger touch, a +/- 2 octaveshifter, an all analogue signal path, a classic British style 12dB/octave state-variable filter, dual all-transistor voltage controlled oscillators, sub-oscillators for super-fat bass, an eight waveform LFO with a 14 octave range, an auxiliary-input to use the filter and envelope-generator for other instruments, a 1/4” output jack socket as well as an internal speaker and headphone socket and a CV and Trigger input sockets.

Not sure what to make of it at all. Although I'm tempted. It's shiny isn't it!

It all sounded great until I saw the price. For not much more you could buy an iPad or a Minibrute, both of which I think would be better value for money.

But your right, it is very shiny! :)

I am lucky to have some insider info on this unit and did the recent product shoot. For Analog synth geeks and serious pro musicians this is a real beast and produces serious low end down to 1 hz! I am also a sound engineer and have had it in my studio and it is really unusual and gets musicians into the intuitive zone of organic sound production. This device will I believe become a cult unit.
