Here we go, I hope Peter won't mind this infringement on his copyrights.

Wow thanks Stephen! The book didn't mention my dad who was the inventor which is odd but Musico was my dad. Mike Beigel and I plan to demo the original Resynator at NAMM this January.

Well, I didn't know either until last week so I'd suspect Peter simply wasn't aware of the fact that Mike Beigel collaborated with your dad, with your dad running Musico.

Just drop him a line and I'm sure Peter will be delighted to hear from you.

Really nice project, wish you luck with it, and nice job on the video.

Your dad seems like he was a great guy, really sad that you never got to know him properly.

Well, if you aren't going to give us a demo of the unit, At least sell it to us. The video, as well produced as it is, leaves me a little flat on excitement. I'm sure it's great but, usually there would, at the very least, be a sneak peek. Something to wet our tongues. &, Many of us aren't (or can't get into) going to NAMM.

I will try to upload a video or link to a demo soon, this video was made before the synth was working which is why there are no sneak peaks.

I am traveling at the moment and don't have any footage with me to share. The only thing I can offer now is on my resynator instagram there is a short video clip from when I took it to Colombia. @resynator

When I return home I will try to get a more substantial video to post.

Wow, this thing looks very interesting! I was thinking of developing a wind controller (in a classic diatonic fashion, like bansuri or irish flute) with a CV/gate output, so I would be able to play all the slides, which current wind controllers do not allow in a natural way that I'm used to, but if this thing ever becomes an accessible product, I'd rather play my real flute through this :) It would be much more fun and interesting.

Alison, it's a wonderful project you've started and I hope you'll be able to realize it. I also hope I'll be able to contribute to it.

Just keep going!
