The Duo is an innovative and appropriately named new synthesizer, developed by Dutch company Dato, that is designed to make it easier than ever for children to work and play in pairs to enjoy the unparalleled joy and learning that comes with creating music.

Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, this brand new synthesizer that allows one user to play the melody while the other takes care of sounds and beat-making. This is made possible by the inclusion of musical technology that includes a dual oscillator synthesizer and an 8-step circular sequencer.

Synthesizers clearly don't have to only be used by serious and adult musicians, something which the Duo proves. In the words of Dato's co-foudner David Menting, "synthesizers are too much fun to be left to grown-ups alone."
