the eCorder Faraday

     The eCorder Faraday is a family of all-electronic  recorder, designed to take you from standard recorder playing to infinity and beyond. It plays just like a standard recorder, but can be played in any key and any octave, from Sub-Contra-Bass to Garklein. It features MIDI, for use with any standard hardware or software synthesizer, and some models feature Analog Control-Voltage (CV) outputs for use with analog synthesizers. Further extending the capabilities of the acoustic recorder, it has extra holes and sensors to play an extra octave higher and lower, and is equipped with an accelerometer to sense up/down and left/right tilting (which can be flexibly mapped to almost any parameter) as well as sliders and additional configurable buttons / pads. It features a high-bandwidth pressure sensor for the breath, capacitive finger sensors for the same touch and feel as an acoustic recorder, including flattement.  Some models feature a built-in ultra-low-latency (sub-millisecond) physical-modelled synthesizer provides realistically accurate emulation of the acoustic recorder.
