dato duo by toon welling and david menting

a pair of dutch designers, toon welling and david menting are combing a synthesizer and sequencer together into one fun electronic instrument for both children and adults alike called the dato ‘duo’. the way it works is, while one player plays a melody on the sequencer side, the other creates its sound and adds percussion on the synthesizer side. by carefully controlling the possible parameters, they designed the ‘duo’ so users can’t do anything wrong.
