OVERVIEW

Bring sax chops into the world of synth sound.

You can set the fingering of the Yamaha WX5 MIDI Wind Controller to match a number of wind instruments and it features a 16-key layout similar to a standard sax. Includes built-in MIDI output connector, dedicated connector and cable for direct connection to WX-Series tone generators, high-resolution wind sensor for smooth volume control, thumb-controlled pitch bend wheel, and more.

The Yamaha WX5 Wind Controller takes wind MIDI control to new levels of performance and playability. With precise, responsive wind and lip sensors, a choice of single-reed or recorder type mouthpieces, and a range of fingering modes, the WX5 makes expressive wind control more accessible than ever before. The WX5 gives experienced wind players a new medium and vastly expanded sonic possibilities in a familiar format, playable enough for beginners.

Outstanding synth controller for woodwind players

Comments about Yamaha WX5 MIDI Wind Controller:

My instruments are Sax, Clarinet and bassoon. I was really skeptical about going electronic until I heard Michael Brecker in concert with one of these things and I was hooked. I have it hooked up to a Yamaha VL70m with PatchMan's enhancement chip and an el-cheapo 50watt amp and it sounds like the best saxes I have ever played. The reed is very responsive and the air-flow sensors allow me to do everything from growl to flutter with far less effort than the real thing.
