Styrofoam Stylophone


de la mancha have released Styrofoam, an emulation of the Stylophone. Here’s what they have to say about it in their own words…
styrofoam is a lovingly rendered emulation of the classic Rolf Harris endorsed analog synth of yesteryear. Take a nostaligic stroll in soft-focus, sepia-toned memories, when summers lasted for 16 months and you could still buy Penny Chews for a penny. Bring back the sounds of living room renditions of your favourite hits, in splendid monophonic square-wave glory with this faithful emulation, minus the crappy vibrato, that was, let's face it, crap. But back to that square-wave. It's not just any old square-wave, no, it's not just your bog-standard, ten-a-penny, digital square wave. This, ladies and gentlemen of discerning taste, is THE square-wave, the actual, real-life, carbon-copy, I-can't-believe-a-plugin-can-be-this-analogue square-wave. Once you've tried it, there's no going back to your complex, multi-waveform dreams. THIS is all you need.
