VST Buzz has launched a sale on Synthophone by Sampleso, a deep sampled instrument for Kontakt based on the classic Stylophone.

Combined with Sampleso’s signature Kontakt engine this instrument is taken way beyond its original functionality, offering virtually endless sonic possibilities.

The classic Stylophone is of course best remembered as a well loved children’s toy, but it’s cultural influence has been felt ever since thanks to it’s use in iconic tunes from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s by artists such as David Bowie, Kraftwerk, Tony Visconti and They Might Be Giants!

This modern update by Sampleso takes the original instrument and extends it’s capabilities beyond recognition. The sheer amount of possible shaping and FX combinations that are possible within this Kontakt based library will lend it to many interesting and varied musical uses.
