Thanx so much Noel. I don't have that wind controller mastered but I am trying. I'm not ready for prime time yet.

Great job and thanks for sharing!


Thanx so much Deryk for listening and commenting. I'm glad that you like it.

Googled the biz on the wind controller, now on xmas list.



Thanx. The wind controller is an Akai EWI USB:

https://www.amazon.com/Akai-Professional-EWI-USB-Electronic/dp/B001MTKAD0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1538165694&sr=8-2&keywords=akai+usb

This has no internal sounds. All of the sounds are computer VSTis.

There is an Akai with internal sounds but it costs more:

https://www.amazon.com/Akai-Professional-Electronic-Instrument-Wireless/dp/B00IJF00GW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1538165813&sr=8-2&keywords=akai+wind+controller

This will also play VSTis.

I chose Akai because it has a pseudo trumpet fingering. I played trumpet and French horn years ago so the transition wasn't too hard. The octave rollers still give me the fits at times.

There are other brands of wind controllers out there so be sure to check them out also.

Hello, Mario

Yes, magic garden indeed.
Very nice ambient music!
The flute via your wind controller is really nice.
The use of each VST instrument is wonderful.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Edit - I am playing the flute via my wind controller.



Mario, you're such a master with the new age style of music, I love ALL your tunes. Thia one would make a fabulous background for a nature documentary

Hi, Mario !:))


Thought I had commented earlier
but seems it had gone into the
cyberspace ??? Anyhow, my friend,
this is a wonderfully ambient piece
with mysterious space sounds and
so interesting chords !:))

I love that kind of music and this
is from the top of that pile !!!

Cheers
Dani
