I know that the Pro Range will be able to play in to octaves, but what about that compared to the harmonica? Which one will be easier for a beginner, sound better in certain places(outside, inside, small rooms, large rooms, etc.), and which is "better" for overall music?

That depends on what you want.  The diatonic harmonica will play in three octaves, with some missing notes, but it is not chromatic, so you need a sack full of them if you are playing with a group.  Chromatic harmonicas can play a full  chromatic scale in three (or four) octaves but are much more expensive and harder to play.  Harmonica reeds wear out and have to be replaced every now and then.   On the other hand quality ocarinas are much more expensive that quality diatonic harmonicas, more likely to break when dropped, and harder to transpose on unless you have a sack full of them.

What it comes down to is which you prefer.  I like both, but when I play with a group I play the harmonica, with the Ocarina relegated mostly to the bedroom. I should also note the I only have single chamber Ocarinas  in a very limited number of keys.

I also have another question.  Is there anything knew on the production of the Pro Range? No body is really saying too much about it. Are all the questions asked?

Read the "Something to talk about" thread.  That is all I know about that.
