February update: video & good news!
The design of the DUO is done and production parts have been ordered. Here’s a quick video showing off the latest and final prototype.
The delay effect adds an echo to the signal. Slide adds a glide between two notes. Accent opens up the filter envelope a bit more. The two black drum pads allow you to add a bass drum or snare by finger drumming.
We received production samples for the housing and circuit boards and are very happy with how they turned out. We have ordered parts for the first 250 Dato DUO’s, which is enough to send all backers their DUO’s.
Boxes of parts are arriving at our workshop every day: 500 AC adapters; 1.000 sliders, 25.000 screws. According to our suppliers, the housings and circuit boards should be delivered at our workshop within six weeks. That means we should be able to send out all Dato DUO’s in April – yay!
If you missed out on our Kickstarter campaign, now is the time to pre-order to receive a Dato DUO right after the Kickstarter production batch. Our second batch is scheduled for May. Press the big green ‘Pre order now!’ button at the top of our Kickstarter campaign page, or visit http://dato.mu.
All the best,
David and Toon
