You missed it!


An original Dato Duo from the batch we picked up a couple of years ago. This is a new “open box” product – it has been used for a couple of demos but was then lost in our stock shelves.

Condition is as new. Box has some low level wear.

A clever and intuitive synth, specifically designed for two people to use together. Brilliant for kids, but trust us: this is a great piece of kit for instant noise-making for all ages. We’ve really fallen for it – it’s already being used in the background as a sound source in some of our instagram demos.

One side is a keyboard and sequencer, the other controls the digital oscillators and effects. Yes – it was designed to get kids into synths; but it sounds great and will easily integrate into your set up thanks to MIDI and sync in and out. More info and demos to come soon.

Scroll down for specifications and more info from the Dato website and their intro video for the machine, but first this is it in action, first with a 6 year-old who had been left alone with it for half an hour, and then as a test for a (now sadly sold) HH Slider Echo:

A post shared by Soundgas Limited (@soundgasltd) on

From the DATO website:

“This is the Dato DUO, a synthesizer for two. A flashy sequencer paired with a gritty-sounding synth.

We believe synthesizers are too much fun to be left to grown-ups alone. You don’t have to be an experienced musician: we designed the Dato DUO to be enjoyed by kids aged 3 to 99 and up — that includes you!”
