Some impressions from Westerlo and Le Con Continu 2015. It was just fantastic! I met a lot of very nice people and got very good response for the MidiGurdy. But I really need to get a camera with a better microphone...

--- MidiGurdy is: An electronic hurdy gurdy: plug in headphones or an amplifier or connect it to your iOS device, your notebook or your netbook.
Marcus notes: It's not a hurdy gurdy, it is a MidiGurdy. And as such it is meant to be a tool: mainly for practice, but maybe also for trying out new (electronic) ways of musical expression. Can't wait to see what people will use it for... 
re: Sound – "Der Sound der Melodiensaite klingt für mich noch etwas künstlich. Sind das schon die neuen Soundfonts?"
(The sound of the melodies-string sounds to me something artificial. Are the already the new sound fonts?)
Automatically Translated
– MidiGurdy: "Nein, das ist der alte, in ein paar Stunden zusammengezimmerte Test-SoundFont. Und ja, er klingt sehr künstlich... Aber ich arbeite dran" smile emoticon
(No, no, no, this is the old, in a couple of hours together lumber test-Soundfont. And yes, he sounds very artificial... But I'm working on it)
