Hi Daren, thanks!
Yes, the outside tube would be for air and condensation release.

is this prototype currently connected to a computer?

I’m sorry I have not made it clearer: yes, it is connected to a computer (Mac or Windows, but there is software for linux too) through USB. Both the master keyboard and the breath controller generate MIDI messages that are sent to the computer over a USB connection. Once you install sforzando (or similar), you select both devices as input, select your sound and you are ready to go.
I should add that the total cost is about 200€ and assembling and setup are pretty simple once you know what to do.
