CyberStep, a Japanese company which has had its idea converted into reality with the help of crowdfunding platform Kickstarter will demonstrate its newly-developed all-in-one music production device KDJ-One at October’s Music China 2017. The fair will be the very first time the company has stocks ready to sell.

Music China is renowned for providing visitors and exhibitors with a constant source of inspiration and innovation, and this year’s edition is no exception.

Mr Yutaka Owada, one of the founding members of CyberStep and his college friends found this undiscovered market potential. “Professional tools to create music were always confined within a PC environment. We’d also never seen hardware that was portable, no bigger than the size of your hand, and with an interface dedicated to creating music,” said Mr Yutaka Owada. This discovery resulted in “KDJ-ONE” – a portable music device which allows musicians to create music on the go, and have access to their creations anytime, anywhere.

To bring this idea to life, the company used Kickstarter to get support from musicians and gadget fans who are obsessed with the very latest cutting edge products. The project received an unprecedented amount of success, with 398 backers who in total pledged USD 158,449 to help bring the product to reality. Music China 2017 will take place from 11 – 14 October 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
