Connected to headphones, a portable speaker or even a stage sound system, the du-touch S is designed for personal use as well as live. Whether it is to relax or to express yourself, appropriate the instrument according to your musical desires!

The dualo principle, harmony simplifier

Invented in 2007 by a musician and mathematician, the dualo principle arranges notes that sound good together next to each other. In music, this corresponds to taking “one note out of two”. We thus find ourselves with two complementary keyboards, the chords falling under the fingers of each hand.

With the geometric keyboard harmony becomes logical; scales and chords become simple and invariable forms wherever you are on the keyboard.

The effect is vastly increased thanks to the backlit keyboard which illuminates the scales, making it possible to truly avoid false notes!
