Trino

Project description

Trino is an electronic bagpipe. This bagpipe produces the same sound of the traditional instrument but it is autonomous, small and very easy to carry. It fits a small case, allowing the musician to rehearsal and practice comfortably without making the loud sound of the traditional instrument. With Trino it is possible to practice the instrument in any place, ranging from outdoors to a quiet library or our sofa at home. People who know Trino say that as it is very easy to use, anyone can play it.

Trino

What are the project goals

Trino’s innovative technology is in its sensors that capture the movement of the fingers in a very natural way and also in the sound algorithm which is based in samples from the traditional instrument. It allows an unique expressivity to the musician. Trino creates a professional quality sound that sounds acoustic, which is very different from the competition’s synthesizer sound.

From career musicians to bagpipe makers, all are unanimous in validating Trino bagpipe and giving it the highest grade.

All these characteristics come in a very small, elegant and ergonomic size.

Trino’s main technical features:
- Totally independent, only needing AAA batteries and headphones;
- Includes metronome with tempo and time signatures adjustments;
- Allows very realistic vibratos and glissando;
- Hi-fi sound;
- It can be connected to a 3,5mm phone connecter (jack plug);
- Ergonomic and elegant design with measures close to the real chanter;
- With chanter stand through the headphones, so that it doesn’t get loose while playing high notes;
- With sound effects adjustment;
- With volume control adjustment – total or only the drone;
- With tone adjustment – full or only the drone;
- May be used as a MIDI controller;
- It is expandable with accessories (we are already working on more than 10);
- It integrates several pre-recorded sounds:
. Galega /Asturiana (traditional bagpipe used in Galicia and Asturias, north Spain and the Minho river valley, northern Portugal)
. Transmontana (native to the Tras-os-Montes region, northern Portugal)
. Small Pipe
. Great Highland Pipe
. Uilleann Pipe
- It allows the musician to introduce his/her own sounds;
- Includes several different fingering:
. Open “Galega” (chromatics)
. “Transmontana” (chromatics)
. Closed “Galega”
. “Asturiana”

What´s the promoter experience

We are an engineering team, associated to traditional music.
Jorge Santos, 37, has a degree in Electronic Engineering, with a career connected to the development of electronic systems. He started playing the bagpipe in 2003 and has been ever since connected with the traditional music movement in Portugal.
Hernâni Bastos, 34, with a degree in Electrotechnology Engineering, has a career associated with electronics and is very fond of the traditional music.

How and when are you going to complete your project

The Trino project is in the final part of its development and the manufacturing structure is almost finished. There are already prototypes that have been tried out by several people connected with the bagpipes, in order to settle the last details before the massive production. In order to begin the production and sale of Trino, with a fair price, we need to produce it in a very high quantity. We have already bought some of the raw materials but we still need to invest in the rest of the materials needed (plastics and complementary components) and the assemblage of the electronic boards. So we need your support in the beginning of this project. Therefore the Massivemov price is going to be promotional. The market price is going to be 20% higher.

What was invested in the project so far

Until now the investment on this project was on the developing process and prototyping. Different versions of the product were made in order to get to the best one. We have already invested in some of the materials needed for a first production and also in systems of the production line which were already used for the final prototypes.
