Midi Mapping for wind controllers WX7 WX11 etc

Unread post by Blo » Mon Mar 12, 2018 10:29 pm

I play a VL-70m which has the Patchman chip and a Roland XV2020 with Patchman voices, I'd recommend both. Apparently Yamaha synths are often breath controller friendly, this is the case with my TG77, mostly though synth voices were designed to be played with a keyboard.

There's some info on the web, I wondered if anyone here has experience of midi mapping using a Midi Solutions Event Processor or some other software mapping tool for a wind controller? I've bought an Event Processor and the configuration software here runs under Linux Wine (Windows and Mac available too).

I forgot to mention that Midi Solutions Event Processor is powered from Midi-in. Their website lists the WX7 as not providing power, the WX11 and WX5 though not listed would be probably be similar. I can though plug my WX7 into a VL-70m then midi-thru to the Event Processor box then on into my Roland xv-2020, this works. I've experimented with altering the wiring in my WW-Bat to avoid having to use my VL-70m. I can power up the Event Processor with my modification but then the WX7 doesn't play. Back to the drawing board!
