    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. ...

    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.

    Two spouts which are provided with a reed. Cepdendant ADAPTS to play well with reed instruments, I opted to use the pitch wheel is conveniently placed on the controller and much more accurate and reproduces the effects that can occur with a acoustic instrument. (Including the trumpeters appreciate the pitch suited to their instrument!)

    SOUNDS

    While this instrument tends to mimic real instruments but it is also possible by forging a software "build" his own instrument! Why not a saxophone mouthpiece on the body of a trumpet. And if it sounds crazy, I can tell you that it can find some really interesting sounds!

    OVERALL OPINION

    The + and -

    + Even now, the best synthesis of wind instruments. Controller associated with the wind, the sounds are alive because the "breath" is an integrated real-time parameter.
    + Expression in the game remarkable.
    + This hybrid instrument admirably supports the weight of years, the materials chosen are of impeccable quality.
    + In view of its originality / quality and the price charged could not be more reasonable!

    The output-anologique dire fishing! We are obliged to put the beast to its maximum volume in a loss of quality of sound reproduction. This concern is not at all present in the headphones.

    Was definitely not a fan of yamaha, they surprised me with the release of the expander which is located on a relatively small segment of the business perspective. I salute all the audacity that the final rendering.

It is possible with virtual instruments dobtenir effects impossible in Ralite: ambitus a gigantic, impossible with a virtuosity linstrument rel constraints, etc.

    The VL70m offers numerous advantages in terms of music programming, not only in terms of sound reproduction but also in the reproduction of acoustic instruments specific behaviors that make them, if musical instruments. MODEL The physical can be programmed to provide a number of deals inhrentes the instrument (the length of a pipe or stiffness of the reed, for example).

    But it is only playing that can be rgler precision with the sound produced by a particular configuration. Because of its natural acoustic behavior, the VL70m is naturally a bit more difficult matriser synthtiseur a classic, but its the CONTRL CHARACTERISTICS allows precisely dvelopper its huge potential.

    Yamaha, Korg and Technics are the first manufacturers attempting OF USE synthse by the technique of physical MODELS. Their business is stratgies diffrent, and dmarches distinct. We must all prciser synthtiseurs by using synthse employ physical MODELS The models exclusively waveguide. If manufacturers adopt this synthse giving different names trs (S / VA, MOSS, Acoustic Modelling) it is indeed always the same technique.

    Whereas when all that fails to synthtiseurs traditional physical The models seem to be a nice place on the market.

    UTILIZATION

    Sound should I think about every style of music you could make a realistic fx of weird but also make a solo play smart and with continuous monitoring after the filter format gm I find a missing effects syncro = tempo as I have said are strong point are expressiveness velocity response aftertouch control + Breath control different that you could continuously assign its weak point if he needs one is that is really necessary eave any sounds playing time on each has to learn each metrized because even the sax at 2 reactions are not the same but for all who do not use it for their synthesis play midi files that should not be a problem I

    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.

    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
