  • VIPro and Breath Controllers

    I was just playing with my new breath controller and the Vienna Instruments today. I still can't get over how awesome it is to blow and hear the velocity layers crossfade convincingly.

    I wondered, though, whether there is a way to set up VIPro so that tonguing can trigger new notes - i.e. I hold a single note, but tongue several, and VIPro cycles through the repetition samples. Although I'm a pianist, it somehow feels more natural to produce repetitions this way on a wind instrument than it does to physically hit the same note several times. If it can't be done at the moment is there any chance it might become a feature in the future?

  • Hi Pingu, 

    I´m afraid that´s not possible with a Breath Controller, you´d have to try something like an EWI, I guess. 

    A Breath Controller "only" produces one MIDI CC...

  • Thanks Paul,

    I get that the breath controller can only send one value, but I just thought it would be a great feature to be able to set up a VI in such a way that a sudden drop of expression to 0, or near to 0, was assumed to be a note-off message. Just my wishful thinking; I'm very much a pianist, but also used to play clarinet, which means I find myself wanting to be able to tongue notes when a mouthpiece is in my mouth, but don't have the technique to ditch my keyboard in favour of the EWI.
