OWOW - A new breed of musical instruments.

€51,326

452

Many years ago, Pieter-Jan Pieters (founder of OWOW) did not get into music academy because he could not read sheet music even though he was making digital music on a regular basis. This caused him a lot of frustration that eventually translated into the instruments you can pre-order today. These instruments project human passion and intuition into the way you make music.

We visited GANZ in his home studio and talked about how he would use the instruments in his studio and live shows. Check it out:

After GANZ, we had an OWOW session with Dirtcaps in their studio:

Full Crate, showing us some awesome live action: 

We made five instruments in two versions, because we know your budget is important. The DVC version has a high-end aluminium case and the CRD version is the bare circuit board of the DVC version, keeping the quality just as high, but affordable. 

Create digital music with the same intuition and passion as traditional instruments, but the benefits of working with your computer. The instruments focus on the creative side of music making, rather then the technical side of it. 

In stead of five functionalities packed in one big expensive machine, we provide five separate instruments. In that way you can choose which one suits your way of making music.

Many music producers make their sounds with just a mouse and keyboard. We believe music shouldn't be like programming code, so we made instruments that allow you to play your music instead of coding it. We bring back that unique human touch.

The instruments connect with every software on your computer, tablet or other devices. No drivers required. 


We love 3D printing and strongly believe in its future. Therefore, we also provide the 3D file, so you can 3D print your casing when the time is right.


After three years of working on the instruments, we can now proudly say that we are finally out of money. Hooray! With our instruments almost 'good to go’, but no more budget left to finish, we need your help. Support and pre-order now, so we can bring our work to life. Here is our timeline.

We are the 'Omnipresent World of Wizkids' and do things in a different and fun way. We love top notch design and electronic music. That's why we created the DVC and CRD series. With no investors peaking over our shoulders, we operate as an independent company 

Risks and challenges

Over the last three years we have been working extremely hard to ensure our instruments are high quality. However, there is always a risk when producing a product which is new to the market.

We combine music and design, technology and engineering, all to make cool stuff for you. The DVC series is built to perform and has a high quality casing. The CRD series performs the same but is built to be affordable, meaning that it is delivered without the aluminium casing. Please keep in mind the CRD is a bare circuit board. For outdoor and 'on the road' use, we advice you to print its casing, using the 3D file that we provide for free with your CRD.

Besides that, we are working hard to launch really cool accessories in the short term, allowing you to bring the CRD series devices on your travels safely.

Last but not least, we are committed to keeping our campaign as transparent as possible and we will openly communicate with our supporters on the progress we make and the issues that might arise.

If you have any questions, please drop us a line: info@owow.io
