I am looking for advice on using the Yamaha WX5 Midi Controller to play as part of a live group of mostly acoustic instruments. I used to play clarinet, soprano sax and tenor sax with this group, but a year ago I developed Bell's Palsy so that the right side of my face has been paralyzed. The palsy is substantially better, but I still am unable to play my instruments. I understand though, that it is possible to play the Yamaha WX5 Wind midi controller even with Bell's Palsy.
My primary goal would be to play the saxophone sounds or the clarinet sounds in a live situation.
Has anyone used the Yamaha WX5 midi controller with the Garritan libraries?
Which works best for single instrument use, the Personal Orchestra or the Jazz and Big Band. What is the difference in the sounds?
If I am starting from scratch, what else do I need to go along with the Garritan package that I pick?
