Founded just before Covid hit in 2019, Artinoise started a Kickstarter for Re.corder, an electronic wind instrument, which is a hybrid of a digital and an acoustic recorder.
Davide explained that can be played as a regular recorder, and should have wide appeal as the recorder and all its learning materials are taught in schools across the world, but Re.corder also functions as a midi controller, with pressure sensors and capacitive touch sensors around the finger holes, and its unique small and light form factor make it more affordable than its wind controller competition. There is also a lip sensor which allows people with impaired lung capacity to play the re.corder by touch.
It also has a teaching app for apple and android which lets you play expressive saxophone, bagpipe or even violin sounds through the re.corder.
