The eCorder is an all-electronic Soprano 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 also features MIDI, for use with any other hardware or software synthesizer plug-in, and 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 two sliders and six additional configurable buttons / pads. It features a high-bandwidth pressure sensor for the breath, capacitive finger sensors for the same no-force feel as an acoustic recorder, including flattement. A built-in ultra-low-latency (sub- millisecond) physical-modelled synthesizer provides realistically accurate emulation of the acoustic recorder.
