WARBL is a plug-and-play USB MIDI wind instrument that allows the traditional musician to practice with headphones or mimic the sound of any instrument using familiar playing techniques. Designed to simulate a variety of open-tonehole wind instruments such as tin whistles, flutes, and bagpipes, WARBL has optical sensors and real toneholes for continuous finger sensing and realistic feel. An air-pressure sensor allows playing with breath or a bagpipe bag.
Simple and versatile hardware design allows for competitive pricing. Power is supplied by USB so no batteries are required, and low power consumption provides compatibility with many devices. WARBL is made individually in a small shop, drawing on many years of experience with musical-instrument construction.
The online WARBL Configuration Tool allows complete control over settings, rather than relying solely on buttons to change options. You can adjust and save settings to design the instrument of your choice. Just plug in WARBL and open the tool in a browser that supports Web MIDI.
