It's interesting that the ProRange will only have 10 finger holes. I'm guessing this means there are two bores for each finger position, one reaching to the first chamber and then another to the second. I'll have to hear it but I'm actually really interested in getting one, especially reading that it doesn't have as much of that MO type tone quality.

Since the voicing is reported to be on the back of the ocarina, we may be able to do a slight bend with the chin to get a lower B, if there won't be any sub-hole notes. After a little practice if the ocarina is shaped just right, it can be about as easy as using sub-holes.

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.

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.

It's difficult to play MO's if you're mainly used to transverse ocarinas. My Inline G plays very "open," that is with little to no back pressure, and the breath slope feels nearly even, especially pointing out the high notes that don't increase in breath. The sound & playing style definitely throws me off from what I'm adjusted to. Even so, this new instrument is too neat to pass up, plus MO deserves support with this launch. The R&D on the Coda seemed like a huge pain in the ass lol
