A new Kickstarter campaign will be launching on September 3rd, 2019 to raise the funds required to take a new beat machine into production called the Beatbox designed by Rhythmo. Beatbox has been created to provide an affordable entry level machine to get you started with music production. Although it may be housed in a cardboard outer the company says no compromises have been made and the all in one solution allows you to quickly start making music.
Equipped with an integrated on-board amplifier, speaker and battery assemblies the included sound-packs and tutorials enables users to start creating music without the need for additional equipment and guidance. “Starting music production can be quite confusing and intimidating. Gears can get expensive. You don’t even know if you’ll be good at it yet to make a serious commitment. What do I need exactly? Which audio workstation software to use? How do I start performing? I mean, what do DJs actually even do?! We at rhythmo understand things can be confusing. Therefore, we made the Beatbox.”
Beatbox comes with arcade-style buttons, a joystick, parameter knobs, and two 50 W speakers, all connected to a Teensy 3.6 dev board and a 3,000 mAh battery pack. The kit will take approximately 60 minutes to construct and will soon be launching on Kickstarter with discounts available for early bird backers. After the crowdfunding campaign is finished the expected retail price will be around $150.
