In this episode of the podcast I speak with Matthias Mueller, who is the co-inventor of a device called the SABRE. The SABRE is a device that connects to your clarinet or saxophone and transfers pressure and motion information to your computer. This allows you to augment your performance in amazing ways in a live setting.
The SABRE was first discussed on Episode 33 of the podcast when the device was still in its infancy, but now it’s almost ready for commercial release! Learn where and when the SABRE will become available, and some of the exciting ways it will revolutionize clarinet playing in the 21st century.
