  1. This thing is amazing. I wonder why we don’t see more of them in the field. I know its a specialty item in a sense, but there are plenty of guitar or percussion-focused players who find their synth. This one can use the Roland Cloud, so its range is now uniquely huge among woodwind controllers. You can experiment your @$$ off with that as your paint.

    One thing I would like to know is how you keep its spit valve from turning into a swamp. If that goes all green inside, will it hurt the electronics? Gross, man. I know that’s nasty, but its a fair question!:P

  2. New Finngerings? Sounds Swede! Norway I would miss this update. Russian to download it now! Don’t correct the headline; it would ruin my terrible joke.

  3. I’ve often wondered: could I play a device like this as an ‘abstract’ MIDI controller? Or is the wind instrument paradigm so strongly a part of it that it’s not worthwhile? Has anyone tried such a thing?
