That's exactly why I have hung onto my Yamaha CS6X and Motif ES...well, they're great keyboard/synths in themselves, but being able to plug in my BC is not hard to move the reeds into some exotic and life-like modus-operandi!!!

Samplemodeling just released their new amazing flutes. This sounds great with breath controller. The demo video is terrific (breath controller starts approx 1m25s in the video)

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

This breath controller seems really fantastic. Is anyone using it successfully with Band-in-a-Box on Windows?
