more than a recorder

What is it?

The ARTinoise RE.CORDER is a brand-new take on the
classic soprano recorder. With its built-in wireless
connectivity, digital sensor platform, and interactive app, it takes the traditional recorder into the future providing access to a world of previously unimagined sounds and expressive functionalities.

From acoustic to the infinite world of digital sounds with a single touch. Experience the RE.CORDER revolution!
Play it on the road, learn music, practice with headphones, and join friends for online sessions with your mobile device. RE.CORDER is so much more than a recorder!

A series of touch-sensitive digital sensors detect the position of the player’s fingers, a pressure sensor detects the force of the breath and a 3-axis 3D accelerometer detects the position of the instrument in space,  thus opening the instrument to the infinite possibilities provided by its innovative digital platform.


With its dedicated App you can connect RE.CORDER to an external device such as a smartphone, a tablet or a Windows or Mac computer, thus obtaining real-time communication of its complete musical data, its status, the notes played, the force of the pressure and the data of the accelerometer.

You can also connect your RE.CORDER to any app compatible with the MIDI protocol: from the educational ones to the more complex ones of music creation and production such as DAWs (Logic, Ableton, GarageBand, Cubase and such), external sound libraries, loopers, and other MIDI instruments.


RE.CORDER is an instrument with a compact, modern and elegant design.

It is light, ergonomic and complete with the functions of the corresponding traditional wind instrument. But when you activate its internal electronics, it expresses all the revolutionary potential.

Sound Versatility

RE.CORDER App allows you to play the 32 timbres in its sound bank, use different fingerings and create your own, transpose octaves, apply effects, and more. Furthermore, being a real MIDI controller, RE.CORDER is able to reproduce the timbre of any third-party sound library instrument: from trumpet to clarinet; from the French horn to a full violin quartet, as well as percussion instruments and synthesizers.


RE.CORDER is as small as a normal recorder, weighs only 120g, does not need long cables and you can play it with headphones (simply by connecting the headphones input to the device on which the app is installed). This way you can dedicate yourself to playing your music where and when you want without worrying about disturbing anyone!


RE.CORDER promotes inclusivity in that it can be played in special modes that allow it to be used by those with mild disabilities.
With the lip mode, it is possible to play by simply placing one’s lips on the instrument, without the emission of breath.
With the keyboard mode, it is possible to play the instrument by simply touching the keys, as one would with a keyboard.
With the magic wand instrument, the emission of sound is done by moving the instrument in space.
In addition, simplified fingerings can be created to facilitate subjects with special difficulties.

Educational Potential

RE.CORDER has extraordinary educational potential.
With the app created specifically for use in schools, the music teacher has the ability to create a full and inclusive orchestra of re.corders in his or her classroom by assigning a different sound and part to each student based on his or her inclinations and abilities.
At home, the student can continue practicing with re.corder either alone (with or without a score and/or backing tracks), or together with a partner via the DUO function, or with the virtual teacher pointing out their mistakes.

The right choice

RE.CORDER stands out as not only the pioneer digital wind instrument based on a recorder but also the most advanced and versatile option in its category available today.

Its app-based technology allows for continuous feature updates, offering users an ever-evolving, highly customizable, and inclusive instrument.

In comparison to other professional Electronic Wind Instruments (EWIs), ARTinoise re.corder provides an accessible alternative in terms of cost and learning curve.

An ideal choice for those looking to start with a straightforward, highly portable, and relatively affordable digital wind instrument.
