Yamaha WX5 overview

  • 1Description

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.
