Quote from: Karl
So, to keep you from worrying about whether "maybe your instrument is defective," we may choose to add texturing to the top and bottom surfaces of Coda.

Wouldn't texturing also improve the sliding of the fingers?... I'm not being clear, am I? A smooth surface can be sticky, or rather, fingers can stick more easily to a smooth surface, and so slide more easily on a slightly textured surface ... no?

Note of interest: the Coda (Compact Optimized Dual Aerophone) logo also reflects the shape of our unique toneholes.

All the letters, or just the O?

You are clear, and that's a great question! Personally, I tend to use slides a fair amount. As you know, the first instruments from our new mold are smooth, i.e. without texturing, but several of my previous 3D printed prototypes have natural texturing. Based on experience, texturing seems to be a neutral issue. Slides work well on both versions.

There is a repetition of theme. Both the outer oval (which has the same ratio, 0.7:1, as the unequal halves of our bisected toneholes) surrounding the word "Coda"and the letter "O" are bisected by the same vertical line in the "O." It's abstract of course, as well as is the name "Coda." 

As most of you know, the stylized "O" is an actual coda symbol, which, in musical notation, signals one to move ahead to the resolution of a piece of music--or, in this case, to the resolution of a long, long musical journey.  A take anywhere, fluid-fingering, two-octave chromatic flute that fits in the palm of your hand.

Now you're just being silly. I was about to share some serious stuff, like Coda's nuclear jetpack option, but now I'm not even going to bother because it's clearly all a joke to you. Wink

Which does matter in the making of a logo.

As long as it less than doubles the price of the regular Coda, I'm interested.

So Karl, what are you going to do with those clear CODA units? Wink

I think they'll be going into the Coda prototype museum, which will eventually be donated to the Smithsonian.

Hmmm, I see what you are hinting at. They only gave me a half dozen. Since they are clear, I put 3 of them down and now I can't find them anywhere. (I just heard a crunch, so I may have stepped on one.) The other three had already been reserved in advance: one for the master, one for the dame, and one for the little boy who lives down the lane. No, actually, one went to the ultrasonic welder, one to Ubizmo, one gave it's life for one type of testing, another for another type of testing, and I do have to hold onto the last two for the Coda museum after I am done making sound samples with them. Whenever possible, I like to keep prototypes of all stages of development to document progress.

Without going into a detailed explanation (for once), I don't have plans to sell clear Codas.

Of course, for the right price, I'd give up Ubizmo's address and a detailed schedule of when he leaves his house unattended, but I'm pretty sure that he takes his Coda with him when he goes out.

The spring-loaded nuclear jetpack option will indeed be a bit pricey, but we may include it free with the purchase of a life-size solid gold chess set. Anyway, I have to get back to work now. Obviously, I'd rather chat with you guys than put my nose to the grindstone. Smiley

You'd better believe it. The invisible Coda is always with me. And in case of emergency I still carry a weaponized aluminium MO. Just sayin.

It's actually very exciting to know that Coda really is at the point where it's no longer a planned instrument. It's a real instrument that will soon be available to everyone.

I play Coda every day, for over a year now. I don't play my MOs anymore. My muscle and musical memory has been completely transferred to Coda. I've played Coda in public, and when people ask me what that funny looking thing is I just say Coda (it's not really funny looking but it is different).

I will be happy to upgrade to a Cobalt blue Coda, however. The clear one looks like a sketch for a finished work of art. As a musician who has played sax, recorder, ocarina, tin whistle and whatever else at various times for over fifty years I can say that Coda is in a class by itself. I completely understand how impatient everyone here is and all I can say is, it's worth the wait. Coda rocks!

Well, I must admit, on this Coda, the logo is very discreet.
