The DUO is a musical instrument for making electronic music together. Age and musical skill don’t matter: it is designed to be played by everyone!

The DUO has two sides facing each other. The flashy circular sequencer is on one side, determining the tempo and melody. The other side, a gritty-sounding synthesizer, is in charge of the sound. The DUO makes a fun, easy to understand instrument with which you can play at home with your kids, jam on the road with a friend or bring along on stage.
