  1. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    So lately I've been seeing these and they seem pretty cool. I was wondering which one I should buy. First of all, I've read a few other forums about this but they all delve in to electronic language I don't understand. For example, do I need to plug it in to my computer? Do I need to buy a...
  2. Notation Software, MIDI, etc
    Hello all, I have an EWI USB and while I love the instrument and the way it plays, I'm very dissatisfied with the sounds provided by the included Garritan software. If any of you know of a way for me to get some new sounds for this instrument, I would really appreciate your help. I'm clueless...
  3. Electronic Equipment
    Hello, I recently purchased a yamaha WX11 controller off eBay. I was naive in thinking it might be possible to use it without some special cables/converters. I’d be happy to use some software synth (computer/usb). Do you know what the cheapest option for me could be to convert the Wx11 output...
  4. Notation Software, MIDI, etc
    Hi there! I just started working on a startup app company that makes a notation app. Play or sing into your device and get instant sheet music. The difference from logic etc. is that it's smart, you don't need to tell it what key or time signature it's in. We're in the startup phase and would...
  5. Manufacturing/ Construction
    For my engineering degree project, 23 years ago, I took a flute, stripped it of links between keys (not that there are many on a flute), added solenoids to operate each key directly, put it all on a stand, and made a controller with MIDI input (8051microcontroller with MOSFETs). I programmed in...

    I have an Akai EWI 4000s, which I've been playing for about three years. In addition to the Patchman soundbank for the EWI, I also have a Roland JV 1010 with the Patchman soundbank and a Yamaha VL70-m with the Patchman turbo chip. (Yes, there may be a trend here. :-) The external synths live...
  7. Electronic Equipment
    I had noticed that there were some older threads posted about the WX5 but none of them had really addressed my concerns. I really don't have any experience with music production software or anything like that on the computer so I kind of jumped into this, but I saw a great deal on a WX5, which I...

  9. Electronic Equipment
    i'm interested in buying an akai ewi 4000s and i'm wondering if its really worth it to buy everything off of patchman. they claim they do a bunch of stuff to set it up, but is it really that much or even necessary? i'm liking the vl70-m with the mod chip and the presets, but the wireless midi...
