Dato Duo - A Synth For Two Players Launches

Buying Choices

Dato DUO is a synth from another Utrecht based manufacturer - not only the home of excellent Kytopia collective and synth studios Sonar Traffic - see our Studio Stekker event coverage from last year (we'll be there this year too), but also Tasty Chips - another manufacturer.

Dato Duo is a unique concept, in that it offers two playing surfaces for collaboration within the same hardware. A simple single voice subtractive synth, with a circular, 8 note sequencer too.

Dato Duo is currently running a funding campaign on Kickstarter - with a Dato Duo starting at €269 Euros. Its at around 1/3 funded with 20 days to go. When funded it will ship April 2017
