First off, we left our prototype with some musicians over the last weeks, they tried the DUO in their setup. We were surprised by their results - it is wonderful to see everyone play on the DUO and making the sound their own.

 

 

Non-musicians also enjoyed playing the Dato DUO on the Sneeuw & Ruis festival.


DUO goes open source

The software for the Dato DUO prototype you have seen in our campaign video is built on top of open source building blocks. To name a few: the Teensy Audio and FastLED libraries have helped us prototype a synthesizer quickly. We love sharing our insights, so we are happy to tell you that we are going to open source the Dato DUO’s software as well. We will share the software under an open source license so that you can learn from, adapt or improve the DUO.


Retail price: € 329

We want to also take this chance to announce the Dato DUO retail price: € 329,- ($ 372 in June 2016). You only have a few days left to give your friends the possibility to get theirs for the Kickstarter price of € 299!

Thanks for your support!

Toon and David
