Overview

WX5 Wind Controller
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.


VL70-M Tone Generator
The VL70-m Virtual Acoustic Tone Generator is a compact, low-cost addition to Yamaha's expanding line of Virtual Acoustic Synthesis instruments, which gives electronic musicians the flexibility and range for greater personal musical expression. The most musical tone generation system ever created, VA Synthesis is as versatile and easy to use from a keyboard as from a Wind MIDI Controller or a Guitar MIDI Converter.
