Dato Duo Is A Synthesizer Designed for Two

by Conner Flynn

The Dato Duo combines a sequencer with a synthesizer. That’s no big deal, but what is different is that it is designed to be played by two people, making it perfect for musical collaborations. That’s a pretty cool feature, because two minds are often better than one when it comes to music.

The triangular shape separates the synthesizer and the sequencer on opposite sides, so you can both play while facing each other. For instance, you can handle the melody and your friend can add noise effects. Maybe you can face off against each other and see who can make the music crazier.

I’m no musician, so let me just throw the features at you. It comes with a pentatonic keyboard for playing notes, making sure that any combination you press will sound melodic. The last eight notes are played in a loop, with buttons and knobs to alter the sound. There’s also a noise-based percussion synthesizer with two sliders, two touch pads, and some knobs. It even has an internal speaker.

You can hook it up to effects boxes, other synthesizers, and other MIDI-compatible devices. The creators say that it produces a “gritty 12-bit sound.” I can see musicians doing a lot with this device and coming up with new ways to use it. Pretty cool. If you want one for yourself, drop by Kickstarter before the fundraiser ends on 6/26.
