Raw audio of a glitching stylophone. This effect is caused by lightly scraping the metal stylus over the keys (as opposed to forcefully pressing the stylus). This confuses the connection, causing a spontaneous glitching as the device struggles to decide whether the key is pressed or not.

This sound is not in the public domain. Please attribute/credit the sound if you use it. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:
"Glitching, Stylophone, A.wav" by InspectorJ (www.jshaw.co.uk) of Freesound.org

If any of these sounds have been of help, and you are feeling charitable, please do consider donating to Freesound to help keep the site running (a link is also on the home page). Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries or SFX store.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "H4n Pro Zoom recorder" on 2nd November 2017.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.
