After a year of engineering, in February 2016, our new product, The MOD Duo has been released.
With MOD Duo the MOD entered in a new era. We migrated from the Intel PC architecture to a whole new ARM hardware topology. We also developed the sound card from scratch, following audiophile and high fidelity concepts. And we moved from São Paolo - Brazil, to San Francisco - USA to reach the global market, then to Berlin in Germany.
It has much larger graphic displays (2,8 inches), a smaller enclosure to blend with your stomp boxes, two footswitches and two encoders.
We launched a crowd funding kickstarter campaign to raise funds to produce the MOD Duo.
We already had working prototypes and a release candidate product.
