Why is the forum dead? Why isn't anyone responding?

What is there to say that hasn't been said already  Huh

I'm quite sure if someone came up with a new and interesting subject that related to Mountain Ocarinas there'd be a whole slew of recommendations and comments. As it is, other than vague references to "the pro-range" (that's been on the books for a l-o-o-o-ng time), most subjects have been fairly comprehensively covered.

The Mountain Ocarina, as fine as it is, is an instrument with a limited musical range and consequently limited public interest. As good as it may be as an introductory instrument, it is expensive, especially when compared to something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXYuTaIydx8 , and lets be honest, once you've got the basic 8 or nine notes mastered, the world is your oyster  Shocked

I actually didn't even know this existed. I think since not every ocarinist has a Mountain Ocarina, it means that this group is quite exclusive. I know I started my journey through ocarina playing using the ocarina network (TON) forum. I'm interested to see what's here, though.

At the very least, I think it'll be fun if there're some recordings/videos from mountain ocarina owners on here.

Thanks Cerescop Smiley I've actually met Ubizmo before! We were both at the Dallas Ocarina meet-up last October. And I agree, he plays FANTASTIC!

I couldn't fail to disagree with you less.

I have to agree with Kypfer that until the Pro-Range comes out, we've probably exhausted most of the topics related to Mountain Ocarinas. Any forum dedicated to a specific product, or line of product, tends to go quiet until something new is released.

Is there ANY news on the prorange model? Is there even a chance it will be available in the future at all?

The last I heard ( which was a long time ago) they were having  issues with getting the CNC machine right. It would be nice to get an update every now and again.

I have been waiting for 3 years now, and other have been waiting even longer.  It is starting to feel like the 80 computer market.  Anyone remember the term vaporware ?

Not sure that it's quite "vapour-ware", but yes, Karl has been working on the "pro-range" for over 10 years now !!

See http://www.patentgenius.com/patent/6914179.html

There can be a whole world of difference between getting an individual prototype functioning on the bench and coming up with a repeatable procedure for profitable mass-production  Cry

It's far from dead.
You could say it's somewhat asleep...though there are always stirrings and the support is there when needed.
Congrats on the order:)

The forum is not dead it is just holding it's breath while waiting on the "Pro Range"   Sadly we have been waiting for a long time, but from what I understand the wait is about over.
