Artinoise founder and CTO Davide Mancini – the electronics guru behind Soundmachines and part of the team behind the IK Multimedia UNO devices – shared this video looking at his latest project, the re.corder.
The re.corder is a hybrid acoustic/electronic instrument that’s designed to be an affordable starter instrument. It’s based on the traditional recorder design, but adds MIDI capabilities. As a result, the re.corder can be used as a traditional recorder, as a hybrid acoustic/electronic instrument and as a MIDI controller.
While Artinoise positions the re.corder as a great learning instrument, it’s probably more interesting to Synthtopia readers as an affordable electronic wind instrument. The re.corder includes a high performance pressure sensing device that can measure the strength of your blow and transform this information into an expression parameter.
Pricing and Availability
Production of the re.corder is being funded via a Kickstarter campaign. The re.corder is available to backers starting at €80.
