Modular Stylophone

The Stylophone is a vintage tiny farfisa-like mini keyboard from the '60s (pretty well-known since David Bowie used it at his "Space Oddity" recording) and revived a few years ago with a digital circuity plus some extras (3 extra sound modes, audio input). My version has turned that toy it into a fully functional modular VCO capable to be driven by other oscillators or LFOs since it's got a CV input. Of course there is a pitch shifting knob, it also has two "hands-free" sustain switches (a high and a low octave note). A fancy and stylish alternative or extension to the Korg Monotron.
