Here’s what Dualo tell us about their cool new instrument... and check out this demo of the real Slim Shady being played on the du-touch:
At time of writing, the du-touch has already exceeded its pledge on Kickstarter by 3 times!! Good news :)
Paris, April, 12th The French startup Dualo is proud to announce the launch of its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter today! They created a connected and mobile musical instrument with an intuitive and futuristic design. It is already available at the starting price of 299 euros (340 dollars) on Kickstarter. In order to unlock the production of the du-touch S t hey already raised 44 000 dollars, in only 4 hours. Their goal is now to raise 50 000 dollars.
Directly inspired from its predecessor, the original du-touch, it offers the same features into a more compact and upgraded version of the instrument. Equally complete, with 3 octaves, the du-touch S is a mix between a traditionnal instrument and a launchpad, with an integrated loopersequencer. It allows you to build your own songs with different tracks without a computer.
Its interface is made both for exigent musicians and beginners with no musical background. Thanks to its small size and weight (1.2 lb), powered by an 8-hour battery, you can compose wherever and whenever you want.
Since 2011, The Dualo Team, based in Paris and composed of musician engineers, is working on a new approach of music.
Based on “the dualo principle”, the du-touch’s double keyboard gathers notes that sound good together, arranged next to each other. It is easy to play and learn. It is now internationally recognized as one of the most intelligent layouts of keys!
