It's not actually on the keyboard - it's on the wooden bit next to it (where the switch is). The main problem is that I have the volume low because the phone's mic is crap and any louder and you'd hear clipping. I figured it was the lesser of two evils.
Games I like, in order of how much I like them.

I play the Clarinet and the Supernova, a computer-synthesis sounding spherical instrument of my own design. It's like, a ball, and it senses where my hand and fingers are, and plays notes accordingly from a speaker. I'm working on it, but its sounds okay*ish* so far. (okay, it sounds really bad.) Well, it would if I hadn't broken it by dropping it. ( :cry: :thumbdown: ) The next model will not be so breakable, but it'll take a while to make again. I yi yi.

Edit: The Supernova is not ready to be shown to anyone via recording! (I have one or two.) I might, if I get around to it, put in a recording of my clarinet, however, in a future post.
Destruction is never precise, Creation is a thought, Time is an illusion, and Chaos and Order are one and the same.

I'll be interested in seeing this when v2.0 is constructed.

Meanwhile, I have been wanting one of these puppies for years:
Image This is an Eigenharp, and it is a Real Thing.

Here are a couple of examples of what it can do. This one and this one are fun, too.

It connects to a computer to download instruments, but control messages can be passed in the other direction:

Finally, it is possible that I've actually been wanting this since 1977:

That's really cool Flat! :) But looking at the price I can see why you haven't gotten one yet :ghost:

If it comes to "instrument I would get if I had inifinte moneys", I have a couple too:

The Irish bagpipes, upon wchich you can play melody and chords at the same time and still have your mouth left to sing:

The melodica:

A midi guitar (I think this would be really handy for composing since I can't play the synthesizer):

The Harp Guitar (dat sound):
