I originally saw this over at Matrixsynth and ever since I’ve been meaning to take a closer look.
My first impression is that I love the idea of it, especially the modular design using interchangeable sound cartridges. I’m sure that I’m not the only person that’s going to appeal to. Bluetooth pairing to a mobile device is also a smart move.
Also the dock with RCA, MIDI, USB-C and 3.5mm jack outputs is a nice touch for using the thing when you’re not on the move. A very smart move indeed.
But Zont is a long way off for now. We won’t see it until late 2017, which is a long time to wait. Also there’s no mention of a price point as yet, which is to be expected, and whilst this might have a similar form factor to a Pocket Operator I’d expect the price to be significantly higher.
So for now you can check the pictures on the ZONT site and the tech specs below
- Universal input interface
- Stereo speakers
- AMOLED display
- Bluetooth connection
- Wi-Fi cloud sync
- Built-in rechargeable battery
- Interchangable sound cartridges
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- iOS and Android app
As soon as I know more about this device I’ll be sure to share it with you.
