What is OTO ?

OTO, from the Japanese oto-no-katachi, meaning “shape of sound”, is a geometrically intuitive musical controller and instrument. Press, tap, touch, squeeze; wave, spin, flip: OTO combines gestural and touch-control across a variety of contexts to let you play synths, trigger sounds, and even spin decks. Use it with our standalone software on desktop and mobile, or use it as a MIDI controller with your favorite DAW. OTO is a knob, a drum pad, a violin bow and a turntable, all in the palm of your hand.


Tap, Wave, Spin, Flip

OTO combines gesture and touch-sensitivity in a geometrically intuitive interface that’s unlike any controller you’ve ever played with.


For Everyone

Whether you’re an experienced producer or just getting started, OTO lets you make sounds like you never have before. Start playing right out of the box with our software on Desktop and Mobile, or MIDI map it to your favorite DAW.
