This kit provides you with the components and instructions that you need to build your very own Handmade LoFi styus synth. All you need to do is build the kit.

If you want to hear what the StyloBuzz sounds like, I have uploaded a small YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LewByXGNpg

This is a great synth kit for those getting started in electronics, but some basic knowledge of electronics and soldering is required.

If you would like to get the parts your self to build the kit I have included the instructions here: http://www.instructables.com/id/StyloBuzz-Synthesizer/



The kit includes:
*StyloBuzz custom Circuit board
*Programmed micro controller
*Electronic components( resistors, capacitors, voltage regulator, 9v battery clip, switch, potentiometers, 3.5mm socket and LEDs)
*Enclosure
*detailed instructions

You will need:
*Soldering iron and solder
*Wire cutters
*Cross head screwdriver to fit the pcb to the enclosure.
*Basic electronics skills(resistor colour codes etc)
*Basic soldering skills.


About the StyloBuzz:
This little stylus synth is played with a stylus attached to a wire, when the wire touches one of the keyboard pads on the PCB a note is played.

Stylus: The stylus is pressed on one of the 13 keyboard pads to play a note.

Mode select: The mode is changed by pressing the S2 button and cycles through the 5 modes back to 1. The mode levels are adjusted using the vr2 potentiometer.
Modes:
1. Frequency: Shifts the frequency up or down.
2. Sweep Size: Controls the amount the frequency will shift up and down.
3. Sweep intensity: Controls how quickly the sweep frequency will change.
4. Chopper intensity: Changes how quickly the note is strobed.
5. Note Length: Change the length of the note.

The output is via a 3.5mm stereo socket which can be plugged into earphones, a computer sound card, mixer or amplifier.

I hope that gives you a basic idea about how the Stylosynth works, if you have any questions about the kit or the skills required to build it please feel free to convo me.

Happy noise making,
RareBeasts
