    Question for Alan Russell

    Have you tried using any of the VSL sax, (or VSL stuff in general) with a WX-5 Wind Controller?

    Eric,

    At present I don\'t own a wind controller. Everything that I articlulate on my Motif 8 master controller is from the fingers.
    The Motif 8 is a touch sensitive keyboard which does help out with a bit of expression.

    Eric,
    you should ask Bruce Richardson.
    He has the VSL sax library and i believe he uses a wind controller...

    LOL!

    I wasn\'t insinuating that there was anything wrong with your current tunes. A fellow horn player put me onto the WX, telling me I was severly limiting myself in terms of playing leads. Once I finally tried the sucker out, I couldn\'t believe it. Just passing this tip along to you :-D

    I\'ve only had the library for a few days, and have not had time to edit it for wind control yet.

    I\'ve been really using Glass and Stones...unfortunately, the project I\'m working on now is the anti-sax, so I only have an opportunity to work with the saxes in little stolen moments. Definitely, getting them edited for wind control is one of the top priorities. I can tell you from experience with other instruments in the VSL collection, though, that the legato instruments work very well with wind controllers. I think in particular the tenor sax is going to do very well with wind control.

    from a fellow reed player to another (Hopefully Tenor, Alto And Soprano) I was just be humorous. I love the Honeymooners.
    I will eventually try the WX6 one of these days. (I think it was updated by Yamaha)

    Carry on..

    Hi Russell,

    I\'ve just ordered VSL Sax. With no budget or experience for a wind controller at this stage, I was putting off the purchase of the patches. Lack of demos was also holding me back (though I loved MH\'s \'friends\').

    Then I found your Leaf\'s Journey and, realizing what a keyboard input could do, I was sold.

    Thanks - I\'m enjoying Leaf\'s Journey until my Sax arrives.

    Cheers
