Itís all to do with the sensitivity settings and Iím still trying to get a hang of them. Thereís little advice about . Sensitivity is basically how close to the holes you have to go to register a note and how far off to go to register the change . Also it could be that the battery was starting to go flat and that sends things Haywire .
Itís still a brilliant instrument , donít get me wrong but could do with some minor mods and better information available regarding sensitivity settings . And the pause.... a simple home button would prevent getting lost in the settings menu .

Hi, reach out to me via the website if you need support with sensors, I'm always happy to help.
There's also an online video: Setting up sensors

It's important to note our skin changes throughout the year therefore the sensors can be individually adjusted to suit. It should be quicker than re-tuning drones!
Re: mute, a foot pedal is best to use and shortly available, along with bagpipes in multiple keys. Quality of sound is fundamental to the instrument so making sure that remains. Thanks!

Thanks Murray,
I saw this before and found it really helpful.
For me the pause button issue is more around I mainly use with head phone but yes with my setup I have one of my guitar pedals which works great.

Looking forward, thank you Mr. Blair! What a great device, and thrilling to see that it's improving still-further.

Cheers,
