    I bought the Otamatone Deluxe instead of the ‘base’ version for three reasons:
    1) It’s bigger.
    2) It has a volume knob control, as opposed to three settings.
    3) It has an audio output.
    I wanted to use the audio output with my headphones, so the noise wouldn’t annoy everyone nearby when I was practicing. Unfortunately, the audio out is apparently for an amplifier or something, so even when my headphones were plugged in, it still made noise. So that was that plan out of the window. However, with the volume on the lowest setting, I can still play it without being too much of a nuisance to everyone, and it can go up to ear-splitting volumes if I want it to.

    I particularly enjoy trying to play the Otamatone along with other songs, and I’m actually starting to get the hang of it (after only three weeks, yay!). My sisters love it when I make the Otamatone laugh.

    With it’s vintage saw-tooth synthesizer sound and strange input surface, this instrument is not destined to make beautiful music. On the other hand, it is so unusual and has such a rapid initial learning curve, it is difficult to put down. You can convince yourself that with a little more practice you could master the intonation and create melodies filled with expressive loveliness. Not going to happen but loads of fun (and slightly hysterical) trying. Very theremin like but much more user friendly. (The larger delux model is much more forgiving in terms of pitch input and consequently easier to play in semi-tune.) One hint: When removed from the box, the input surface was very non linear in pitch response. A few firm glissando slides from low to high extreme and back fixed the problem. This may have been covered in the instructions but they are in Japanese.

    I saw a post on tumblr with these things singing (aka: screeching) Greensleeves.
    I immediately went on amazon and found one. I first looked at the little one. Then I saw this one has volume control, pitch control, an audio output cord (hook this baby up to an amp!! ROCKOUT YO!!) (or to plug into computer for recording purposes, and a HEADPHONE JACK.
    Why did I capitalize that? Cause if you really want to play this machine, you have to practice…and that means very annoyed neighbors/roommates.
    I found middle c fairly easily. It seems to be at the top finger placement on the “mid” setting. It also sounds like with the mouth open the note turns to a sharp, and with it closed it seems more natural. But idk I just smashy buttons and have been trying to play a combination of Simon and Garfunkle and Zelda songs…
