Can't wait to get my hands on one of those :). And I sure hope it's gonna be a huge success.

A few days ago Karl promised to post some sound samples of the CODA by Saturday (July 22 2017). I am very excited to get to hear the instrument being played.

This is incredibly exciting news. I haven't checked in on developments for this ocarina since it was called the pro-range, so it was a fun info-bomb. Thanks, Harp Player! I'll gladly support MO in their launch of this new instrument. This is probably the most sophisticated instrument design that the ocarina family has ever seen.

I have been checking on the MO site almost every day. Most days it only takes a few seconds, but every now and then something new will be there.

Does this means, that Coda will replace entirely the single chambered MO's? The old warm-stone models were eye catchers...

I don't know the answer to that. I just know that he suspended production of the older models while working on the final stages of the CODA. I know a lot of people would like to be able to purchase the old C and G.

Here is the latest update from Karl about the CODA. Well it is actually some sound samples instead of information about the instrument. The recordings sound pretty good to me, but Karl in not real happy with the quality so he promises to post more later.

Okay, it 10 past Midnight on Saturday night, so I better slap up some sound samples. I'm not that technically savvy, so hopefully this link to google drive will work for you guys, at least temporarily. Frankly, I'm not real happy with these mediocre recordings, but I forced myself to post them because of my promise. I'll replace them with more and better recordings after I get some audio things figured out. Not having recorded in a long time, I had to set up a recording area in our bedroom, which I'm still tweaking. I think there may be some repeats, but I'm done with it for tonight!

There's definitely a chamber divide, the first chamber being a lot more textured. The sterile acoustics in the recording don't help I'm sure, though chamber divide is something that any double will have. The volume seems well balanced between the chambers based on the recordings though.

Texture is one of the side effects of the shape of inline Ocarinas. I think that the lower chamber wraps around the higher chamber so that would make it have more texture than the upper. I know that some people like texture more than others. I personally think that texture adds depth and power to the sound, but I know that is subjective and not everyone thinks that way.
