I use the WX7 for over 10 years, it's really an "instrument" Entire hand, it allows many instrumentalists (clarinet, flute, saxophone) of driving synths and sound modules also well as virtual intruments, with complte mastery of expressiveness provided of course adapt the sound playing your game
Almost everything is permitted with this "intrument" a certain instrument jous ateingne ism incredible that so little adapted his game a little (no pitch of an acoustic piano for example) against it is possible to reproduce pulling off on a solo guitar, a bass glissando, vibrato a natural flte and pitch effects, change the LFO, filter openings ... are on the synth.
The new MODEL WX5 is even better.
I use this instrument since 1990, in diffrent sessions live or studio including control of virtual instruments. Right now, I use it in a jazz session in a box of Douala in Cameroon. I have just a small inquitude because I am well aware that this wonderful instrument sr has a lifetime that can not be unlimited. o matter do we find his successor and what price?
It would be really hard to give trs opportunities so rich and vibrant yet offered such an instrument electronics.
A MIDI controller extraordinary for those who like me have already the mastery of a wind instrument (I have 12 years of clarinet at the conservatory being young Yeah ... it's been 20 years already so)
It took me a few hours to get by with WX7 and a few weeks to be comfortable enough to play everything I wanted.
It is associated in my setup to a PLG150-VL (the equivalent of a plug VL-70m) and it's really a pleasure to rediscover the sensations of this type with an electronic instrument.
Compared to his successors, it makes my point even figure reference (the WX11 is less efficient and WX5 really any toc plastic)
In France, the WX series has completely disappeared since a stupid law of the EEC is obliged Yamaha WX5 stop marketing.
That said, there are still relatively easy parts (reeds and mouthpiece) for this instrument ... in Japan.
