Are there any hints on the availability date for the ProRange yet?

It appears that the patented innovation in this case is the bisected finger holes shared between chambers. There are drawings for a double chamber with one windway or alternately for a triple chamber with two windways.

It seems like the split windway design would require you to cover either the left or right fipple to silence the chamber that is not being played. It's an interesting idea, but I don't know if it's really any easier or more intuitive than chamber switching.

The finger holes shared between multiple chambers gives very interesting possibilities for parallel harmonies across a wider range than typically possible on a 2 chamber (5 holes per chamber) harmony ocarina like those made by Hind.
