Stylophone Beatbox, drums, bass-line and human beatbox…
Stylophone Beatbox Review – Introduction
Some time ago we reviewed the Stylophone Retro Pocket Synth a compact analog synthesizer designed in the 60s by Dubreq and used by some great artists. Today we will take a look at Dubreq’s second analog synth the Stylophone Beatbox. This time the machine we are talking about was released in autumn 2009 and it was designed to be the perfect accompagnement to the Stylophone Retro Pocket Synth. So without any further ado let’s hear how the Stylophone Beatbox sound like…
Stylophone Beatbox Review – Three voices in a 35 bucks synth
The Stylophone Beatbox offers three different voices. First you have the drum set, this is an electronic type of drum set that sounds very crispy and toyish. The second choice is a human beatbox recording, actually the samples were taken from MC Zani real beatbox voice. Third and least voice is a bass, so finally you can make some bass-lines to help the Stylophone Retro Pocket Synth. The new Stylophone Beatbox offers a new amazing feature, a looper. So here we are finally Dubreq had the great idea to give the Stylophone Beatbox to auto record itself. The looper can record a very short beat but gives you the chance to record all the three different voices with the same recording. You can set the loop speed and its tuning.

So here we are getting to the end and what we can say about the Stylophone Beatbox is very simple… Why don’t you buy it.
