Decksaver Arturia MatrixBrute Cover on Kickstarter

via Decksaver on Kickstarter

"We've decided on Kickstarter projects to manufacture some of the more niche covers that we get requests for.

In order to produce a new decksaver cover, expensive tooling is needed. This means it's a gamble as often the cover's sales do not recoup the outlay for the tooling and maufacture. For this reason, there are units we can't justify making a cover for as it's too much of a risk.

The idea of these Kickstarter projects is if 200 people pledge this will pay for the design, tooling, production, manufacturing costs and help our customers out by giving them a cover they really need.

The first of these covers will be for the Arturia Matrixbrute and it will feature 'Soft-Fit' inserts to protect the vulnerable wooden elements of the synth from any friction with the cover.

The MatrixBrute's multi-angle front control panel will need to be in the flat position to apply the Decksaver cover. This is so it is compatible with other cases (for those who wish to tour will the synth) and so that the wooden side panels can be protected. We have thought long and hard about this and there is no way to accommodate the control panel in an upright position without compromising the cover.

The cover will be made in the UK from top quality materials, as always.

*Please note that outside of the European Union you will be responsible for paying any customs import charges incurred

Risks and challenges

The MatrixBrute is a physically unorthodox synth, so this will be a challenging cover requiring a lot of design and development.

There will be several points of contact between the synth's laminated wooden parts and cover which need soft fit inserts."
