MIDIPLUS Wind 2: Unlocking Its Power with Effects (No Talking)


video upload by Yukes玉刻 Music

I see Midiplus on Amazon but not the MIDIPLUS Wind 2. I also can't ind it on their website. New product or different manufacturer?

"MIDIPLUS Wind 2 is probably the most bare-bones wind synth on the market. 10 simple sounds, no pitch-bend or expression... first impression is a tough one. But I'd be lying if I said it didn't grow on me over time. Breath-controlled velocity is clutch. It's been a pleasure to have around, no bigger than a tin whistle, easy to keep in a bag and pull out at a jam.

While it's certainly not for everyone, it's pretty cool to have a wind synth at this price. Sort of the r/CheapKeys of wind synthesizers. And with Bluetooth MIDI, it could control any tone you want. Pretty cool little thing.

I knew it had some real potential when I started putting it through effects. It's rare I turn my effects to 100% wet, but with an instrument such as this, a pure tone can really let your effects shine.

In this video I put the Wind 2 through a few effects:
0:00 Clean Tone
0:40 Eventide Blackhole
1:23 Arturia Delay Tape-201
2:21 Arturia Tape Mello-Fi
3:10 Eventide ShimmerVerb
4:15 Arturia EFX Fragments
5:15 Eventide Physion MkII"

Haxophone - A Hackable Electronic Saxophone with Mechanical Keys



Javier Cardona, the maker of Haxophone wrote in to let us know about his upcoming instrument. Here's what he had to say followed by details from the upcoming crowdfunding campaign.

"I'm excited to connect with you as the creator of the Haxophone, an open and hackable electronic saxophone. The instrument's design files and software have been available to the public on GitHub for some time now at https://github.com/cardonabits/haxo-hw.

We are gearing up to launch a crowdfunding campaign for pre-assembled Haxophone units, bringing the magic of this instrument to a broader audience. The campaign is scheduled to kick off on September 7th.

via Crowd Supply

Haxophone is an inexpensive and fully customizable electronic musical instrument that resembles a travel saxophone. Under the hood, Haxophone is a particularly elegant (and fun!) Raspberry Pi HAT. The mechanical keys and custom ergonomics give Haxophone a unique and satisfying feel. The design is fully open source, hackable and OSHWA (Open Source Hardware Association) certified. This means that you can make Haxophone entirely your own, from changing the type of key switches to making your own note and instrument mappings. It is a good fit for musicians who are looking for a way to practice saxophone silently, musicians who are also hackers, and for hackers looking for a fun musical project that won’t break the bank.

While it is not a substitute for a traditional saxophone, Haxophone is accurate enough to allow saxophone players to rehearse both in silence and "on the go". Muscle memory when practicing on Haxophone is transferable to the traditional instrument, and vice versa. This means you can rehearse in all kinds of places that would be unthinkable with a standard saxophone. If it breaks, it is relatively cheap and easy to repair. And, Haxophone is smaller and lighter than any saxophone.

Haxophone has been designed to utilize standard mechanical key switches as fingering keys. In addition of being cool and unique, these are cheaper, more reliable and more repairable than the custom molded keys that you find on digital saxophones. Hackable Haxophone
Haxophone is purposefully designed to be hackable. Inspect it, modify the fingerings, change the sounds, add features like beats or LEDs. The software is written in Rust, a modern language that has been the most loved code language for the last 7 years (according to Stack Overflow).

Haxophone is designed as a HAT (Hardware Attached on Top) for the Raspberry Pi family of single-board computers. This HAT is a special type of keyboard laid out in the same way that saxophones are. We’ve also designed a mouthpiece and a pressure sensor to detect breath intensity. The HAT includes an audio amplifier, so Haxophone does not need to rely on the amplifier built into the Raspberry Pi 3 and 4. This means the HAT will work with the least expensive of the Pi family, the Raspberry Pi Zero.

Haxophone is fully repairable and customizable. Did you break the thumb rest or would like to use a different color? (3D) print yourself another one. The source models for all 3D printed parts are included in our repository."

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.


via this auction

"rare vintage Steiner Electronic Valve Instrument, manufactured by Crumar. It has just been serviced and tuned by a specialist. The service report is part of the sale.

The EVI is a monophonic analog synthesizer controlled by breath, and styled after a trumpet. If you have the skills to play this instrument you'll be impressed by the filter. It's sounding amazing!

Cosmetically it’s in very good condition. The ‘trumpet’ has very little signs of use, the hardcase has some rusty spots on the metal parts. Please check all the photos before you purchase this item.

It is an original 117v version and the serial number is: 00256"

Blip! & Shell Demo. 2nd Modular Per Note Sample Project - Mark Steiner

video upload by

"Seahorses & Shells - Spiral Fibonacci Math Sounds within Analog Modular Synthesis.

Demo of the Blip! and Shell: incredible, genius analog modules made by Fricko.

Slowing building a collection of sample instruments made by sampling every note in a range to bring the beautiful tones of exotic modules and patching methods to others.

At first doing these for the Logic Pro Sampler but will expand to others. In a way that is reachable to have these as they unfold.

This demo starts with a sample instrument using the Blip! module and some Steiner modules, and then explores these modules with direct playing into the modular system. See fricko.home.blog for info about Fricko modules. They are brilliant."
