Yamaha VL70MPublished on 10/31/08 at 16:00
This is a one-trick pony. A virtual acoustic modeller. In that respect its perfect, but it doesn't really do much else. WIth one note of polyphony also, it's meant for live, or single tracking in a sequencer.

Price paid

$600 NEW

UTILIZATION

Menu system sucks, too many button pushes to get to what you need. Manual is OK. Just average. Luckily, once you get all the sounds the way you want them, you can send Midi CC's to change 'em up easy from a midi controller or sequencer. Not a biggie as long as you come prepared.

SOUNDS

Best *affordable* acoustic synth out there. It's big brother has a better sound, but costs ~6x more.

OVERALL OPINION

Once you set it up, it's rock solid....…

OVERALL OPINION

Once you set it up, it's rock solid. Sturdy, and hasn't failed me yet!

If I lost it, I'd buy a new one the next day,. I know I trashed its features, but like I said, it's meant to do one thing... to give you the best synthetic acoustic sounds money can buy and in that respect it excels

Duo win

Yamaha VL70MPublished on 10/07/13 at 10:15
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use this set for almost 2 years.
This is my first wind controller and I had never used before physical modeling synthesizer. I do not have a personal point of comparison.

Both instruments are designed to operate together, evidenced the presence of a front socket WX VL-70m.
I also use a Roland XV-2020, but the patches require reprogramming to respond correctly to controls WX-5.
I listened to the demos Akai EWI-4000S but I have not been convinced by the sounds emitted (!).

This type of equipment is expensive and will be more that is no longer manufactured and is in great demand. …

Today, my wind instrument reference

Not had the opportunity to try anything else at the time because there was little more than this, and like most I was offered by my Dulcinea ...

Having several years of clarinet in my youth, grip the WX5 has been pretty straightforward. The nose and mouth are very close. Soon, we find the expression clean wind instruments, though the breath required is less important than a real instrument.

His side, the generator VL70m remains for me a kind of reference: it makes accessible sounds credible Clarinet, Sax, Oboe, Flute, but also offers some synthesized sounds very nice to play with the WX5.
on the other hand, side sound editing on Mac Only prevented me from going very far, and ergonomic editing VL is typically yamaha, not my cup of tea too.

I also tried the Brass VSTi 2.0 Arturia which is not bad but I'm rather refractory VSTi ...
I do not think that most sample banks to propose an alternative. Maybe next sonic realism (after all, these are recordings of real instruments) but expressive side, I'm not sure, and anyway, it would be limited to existing instruments so it loses some of the interest of this type of synthesis.

With experience, I réfèrerais yet the same choice, the current alternative posed by EWI 4000S AKAI EWI USB and less attractive to me especially because of the mouth of the more distinctive flute AKAI.

Least on this type of controller is the cable connection but it is also true for Akai EWI products or Eigenlabs.
