Passing through Elden Ring is not easy and without restrictions, and making it without taking damage from enemies is even more difficult. What can we say when an electric saxophone is used as a game controller?
Streamer DrDeComposing rose to fame playing FromSoftware action games on the Aerophone AE-10, a Roland digital wind instrument that imitates the sounds of saxophone, clarinet, flute, violin, synthesizer, and more.
Since DrDeComposing first tried playing with the Aerophone AE-10 in November 2021, the enthusiast has already completed the entire trilogy of Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Demon’s Souls and Elden Ring.
The Aerophone AE-10 connects to a PC via USB and transmits MIDI signals sent by the utility Bome MIDI translator converts it to keyboard and mouse commands. DrDeComposing performs all the main actions in the game by blowing into the instrument.
Recently, DrDeComposing not only managed to complete Elden Ring on his electric sax, but also did it without taking any damage – this is the first such playthrough in the world using a non-standard controller.
The full recording of the DrDeComposing stream is available on his Twitch Channel. There you can also see how the player played other Souls games and more with the Aerophone AE-10 (e.g. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild).
