Yamaha BC2 : Fun inside!

The BC-2 is controller by the blast. It consists of a mouthpiece as placing a wind instrument in the mouth, sending the control change. It is designed exclusively for older synths / expanders yamaha, although a case is adaptive was then designed for a price ... prohibitive. The Case has a sensitivity adjustment, and frame serves only holding the object in place (not very comfortable there ...).

Crossing here, I wanted to say how I found this great thing. I'm not that (far from it) a specialist wind instruments, nevertheless BC2 gives me a different approach to certain arrangements, and whatever the type of instruments and parameters supported: Velocity, opening filter, LFO speed ... everything is possible. I use it via my old DX-11 to control vst (i) and native settings in live, and it works great. Vsti emulating some wind instruments are also very simple to parameterize, and I would think that someone who really mastered the arrangement of copper draw a fairly good profit!

The downside is still in size, I have to let it run my DX-11 which suddenly no point me to it (the DX-200 having taken over for FM synthesis). It makes qd same space and weight to make something work in so little bulky. That said, when I see a USB controller breath rate that works well, I'm not complaining ... Advice so if you come across one at a reasonable price, whether or not with a Yamaha dinosaur, test ... It really is a fun tool that brings subtlety sensations and facing the stiffness of certain instruments or traditional controllers.
