OWOW has designed what they describe as a new breed of instruments. Available via Kickstarter, and designed and developed in the Netherlands, there are 5 instruments, each in two versions - the high-end aluminium cased DVC and affordable bare circuit board CRD. They will link to any software and function as MIDI controllers. 3D files are available online to print your own casing for free.
A spokesperson had this to say, "Smartly built, stupidly simple in use, the OWOW musical instruments empower everybody to make digital music in a fun and intuitive way. They work as MIDI controllers and connect with every software that we know. They empower you to create music with your computer with the same intuition, passion and fun as traditional instruments, but the benefits of working with a computer. We worked very hard over the last three years to develop these high quality MIDI controllers. Starter or professional, we know budget is an important aspect. This is why we came up with two versions of the instruments. The DVC series which have a high-end aluminium case and the CRD series, which is basically the bare circuit board of the DVCs series, providing a high-end but affordable musical instrument."
