Product information "Dato - Duo"

The Dato Duo introduces music enthusiasts to subtractive synthesis and sequencing in a playful way.  The machine is composed of a monophonic synthesizer with pentatonic keyboard, effects, a step sequencer and drum sounds. In short: The Duo comes equipped with everything budding producers need for starting their music career. The front panel offers not only lettering, but small graphics as well. Because of this, even kids understand the functions of the instrument’s potentiometers, faders, buttons and touch sensors instantly. Thanks to the control elements being divided into two sections, several music enthusiasts can work on tracks simultaneously. A built-in speaker allows users to be creative anywhere. Audio, Sync and MIDI ports make it possible to connect the machine to studio setups. The Duo’s sound is very charming. - 100% pure fun!

The Duo’s synthesizer features two oscillators. One of them generates a saw tooth waveform. The other produces pulse waves with variable width. A potentiometer allows users to detune or deactivate the saw oscillator. For processing signals, there is a low pass filter with adjustable cutoff and resonance parameters.The synthesizer's VCA comes equipped with a level potentiometer and a decay envelope. Four buttons allow users to momentarily add glide and accent functions as well as bit reduction and delay effects.

The synthesizer can be played in real-time via a built-in pentatonic keyboard. It features a range of two octaves plus transpose options. The keyboard also used for programming the Duo’s sequencer. The composition tool features eight steps, which can be muted individually. Furthermore, there are control elements for adjusting the note lengths and the playback speed. A boost button makes it possible to double the tempo momentarily. A random function allows musicians to create aleatoric patterns.

Drum sounds can be triggered via two touch sensors. A speaker at the bottom of the Dato Duo allows users to listen to their music without any additional equipment. Alternatively, it is possible to connect the instrument to monitor speakers, a HiFi system or headphones. Via Sync and MIDI ports, musicians can integrate the Dato Duo into a studio setup. For feeding power to the machine, there is a Micro-USB connector. (A power supply is included.)

David and Toon from Utrecht (NL) cleverly designed the Duo, the "synth for two", which despite the appearances is not only for children :)
