N: being a student I got very involved in techno music. At first, couple of friends and I started making techno events in our hometown bringing good techno musicians to our local scene. After a while I myself started to produce and play. I was searching for an interface device and they all looked very wrong to my eye - the design, the level of usability and most of all the mass-production character of the business strategy. I felt that musical instrument was turned into a product of mass consumption. I did not like that. I decided I will make a practical, easy-to-use and simple in design device. I didn’t plan to sell anything at that time. I think I was self-assured enough to believe I could do better.
