What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Goliath

The Goliath is a standard MIDI controller. It lets you take control of multiple parameters at once with just one encoder! With the Goliath you can create complex changes to your sound while playing and record complex automation to your DAW by controlling multiple plugin parameters at once. Because it's battery powered, the Goliath is perfect for live performances. The Goliath is a great companion to a synthesizer, modular rig, drum machine or anything with a MIDI input. 

Main features

  • MIDI learn
  • Standalone operation
  • Control multiple MIDI CCs at once
  • MIDI CCs randomization
  • Random notes generator 
  • Battery powered (9VDC, battery not included)
  • Made in EU

Production

The first batch of 100 units will be ready for shipping in early May. PCB production and component assembly is being completed in Budapest, Hungary. Our commitment to building quality devices made it an easy choice to manufacture in the EU. Enclosure, programming and testing is done in Berlin, Germany. 

Stretch Goals

1. 3000€ - Recall function

Allows the instant recall of MIDI state of any parameter the Goliath knows with a button combination. 

2. 3500€ - Your artist/band name engraved on the Goliath

Your personal Goliath with your artist name engraved. What's not to love?

3. 4000€ - Extra enclosure 

An extra enclosure in the color of your choice!

Risks and challenges

Because prototype units are 100% fully functional we don't expect severe challenges at this point. The first 100 units are already being manufactured. Depending on the demand we can ramp up production numbers. We are working with ProductIP (https://www.productip.com) for obtaining all certificates and tests (CE certificate) for large scale market release.
