Digitalization of music is a great step forward, but I also see how the notes get distorted when mimicking these wind instruments (saxophone, trumpet etc) via a computer. Digipipe offers a solution; it is fashioned as a whistle with sensors located behind the mouthpiece. Each blow into the mouthpiece measures the duration and strength of blowing mechanically and converts this to electronic signals. It then transfers the data via infrared light or Bluetooth to the computer or to the digital musical instrument, directly. Parallel and additional input via keyboard or touchpad is also possible, but nothing like doing it the original way!
