Guitar players or keyboardists have many options for inputing data into electronic equivalents. Horn and Woodwind players generally have far fewer instruments and devices to choose from; the WX5 is a welcome addition to the market, combining Yamaha's production expertise in the manufacture of both of acoustic and electronic instruments.

The WX5 is a full-featured MIDI wind controller with a sax-compatible, 16-key layout and high-resolution wind and lip sensors, that comprehensively addresses the musical details and requirements of the Wind-to-MIDI process with an astonishing array of expressive performance controls. The WX5 ships with 2 mouthpieces (Sax, with reed, and Recorder ) and is fully GM, XG, and VL compatible.

              heres some of what i do with windsynth:[@]prefer the wx over ewi because of the lip based pitch bender vs the right hand thumbplate pitchbend on the ewi.

              Not as sophisticated as the EWI but much more user friendly. Best choice for a basic wind synth.

                Convience, light weight, and easy to use, what more can you ask for. Connected to a midi sound source and the magic that can be created are only limited by the boundaries of your mind.
