Just caught wind of this earlier today.
For those of you who are fans of quirky sound
generators and/or tiny percussion instruments, it
looks like we're approaching the imminent release
of the Stylophone BeatBox (
From their webpage:
"After the success of the S1 [Stylophone] became
apparent, Dubreq were asked directly if we could
come up with some ideas for 'follow-on' products
for the Stylophone brand, the BeatBox was the
obvious first choice....
The BeatBox features three all new voices, an
electronic drum kit with useful percussion
sounds, a human beat-box voice... and finally a
'bass' voice which give a bass melody option to
allow you to play a bass line (or set up a
repeating bass loop) to accompany another
Here's a video Brett Domino performing a demo
using two Stylophone Beatboxes:
And, it looks like it's got rudimentary looping
capability, so you can do percussion/bassline
As far as I can tell, it looks like it might be a
nice percussion complement to any hardware Looper
who's trying to keep their setup small and light.
Cheap too, with a MSRP to be set at £19.99.
