Richie Hawtin is collaborating on a new piece of musical hardware together with Allen & Heath.
Hawtin announced the collaboration at a press conference during trade show NAMM. The as-yet-unnamed instrument took two-years to design and will be part of a wider brand called Play Differently.
"The ethos of Play Differently is to create products that will magnify the individuality and expand the creativity of today's generation of electronic music artists, producers and DJs . We hope to encourage and inspire creatives to PLAY differently,” Hawtin said.
The only hint of what the instrument might be is the below picture.
