Stylophone’s Musical Evolution: The Upcoming Theremin and CPM DS-2 Drone Synthesizer

Stylophone, the creators of the original pocket synthesizer, have been at the forefront of unique sound production since 1968. With over 4 million units sold since its launch, the Stylophone pocket synthesizer has become an iconic instrument that has captured the hearts of music enthusiasts around the world. Today, we’re taking a closer look at two exciting upcoming additions to the Stylophone family: the Theremin and the CPM DS-2 Drone Synthesizer.

The Theremin: A Touch of the Classics

The theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments, known for its ethereal sound and unique “hands-off” method of playing. It produces sound without any physical contact, using two antennas to sense the position of the player’s hands—one to control frequency and the other to control amplitude.

Stylophone’s upcoming theremin aims to bring this classic instrument into the modern age while maintaining its vintage charm. It’s an exciting development for those interested in electronic music history, offering a unique hands-on (or rather, hands-off) experience that’s unlike any other instrument.

The CPM DS-2 Drone Synthesizer: Pushing the Boundaries

On the other end of the spectrum, Stylophone is set to introduce the CPM DS-2 Drone Synthesizer—a cutting-edge instrument designed to push the boundaries of sound creation. This synthesizer is geared towards producing continuous sounds, often used in ambient and experimental music genres.

The CPM DS-2 is expected to offer a multitude of controls allowing for a vast array of sound manipulation options. From pitch control to modulation effects, this drone synthesizer promises to deliver a comprehensive tool for musicians looking to explore uncharted sonic territories.

In conclusion, Stylophone continues to innovate and expand its product range, offering exciting new tools for music creation. Whether you’re a fan of the classics or eager to experiment with new sounds, keep an eye out for these upcoming additions to the Stylophone family.
