I want to buy a dualo but am having a really hard time deciding which one to get. I have a little music experience with the guitar as messing around with garageband on my mac.  I like the size and portability of the Dualo S, but am wondering if it is harder to play giving its size compared to the original.  I would also like to be able to have room to grow as I improve and am wondering if the Dualo S having only three octo and 2G of memory would hold me back later as I improve and think about performing.  I know it really comes down to personal preference but any help opinions would be appreciated.

    Hi, I work with dualo and I have been testing the two versions. I have a big musical background with acoustic instruments and I am a dualo L player since 2 years and a half.

    - You will have more than enough room to improve your skills and sounds to become a good musician with the S version and 2 Gb. If you plan to have fun with friends, and/or play live for about an hour (maybe more) with good quality sounds (52 is a very good range), I think the S version is the best for you (and you can have it fast ! :P).
    - If you want to become a huge star and play live for hours, making epic solos on one hand (double chromatic keyboards), and play with a number of sounds you can't even handle, the L version is for you (but you'll have to wait more to get it).

    From the L version to the S version, it is not that harder to play, you can transpose the octave with a simple gesture on the S version. But I miss the chromatic keyboards on both sides on the S version, but that's a pianist talking...

    Do not hesitate if you have more questions :P
  • I dont know a lot about music theory, but I watched the youtube video explaining the difference between the S and L as far as the chromatic applies to the keyboards. How would it affect my ability to play? is it a major disadvantage to not having the chromatic keyboards on each side? Or is it something that only an experienced musician would notice?

    To my point of view, if you are new to the dualo world and if you don't have a big musical background, the du-touch S is perfect. 
    Also, considering the du-touch L will only comes in a few months, I'd rather start with a du-touch S, exploring all its possibilities and if in a few months you believe you need more, switch to the du-touch L. 
    As we are delivering the du-touch S by batch, second hand du-touch are pretty rare on the market. Which means if you sell your du-touch S in a few months, you will sell it fast without losing big money. If you play on it 6-8 months on it and sell it 150€ less than the price you paid for, it would have cost you 20€ per month, which is not a big deal.
