Re: AODYO Sylphyo

I first heard about Sylphyo from an audiomodeling e-mail, so I went to the company web site. Big mistake, all they had in the first 4 videos was a bunch of nothing, just bragging about how great it was etc. with barely any sounds made with the instrument. I almost gave up but then I found the same l...

Re: Best Sax wind controller

While the Synthophone has a number of undeniably great features especially because it feels like a sax in every way, not surprising since it is a sax, the issue that has been glossed over is the price. The price is approximately $ 3,800 which is significantly higher than any of the wind controllers ...

Learn about the French Horn

I came across this wonderful, informative video about the French Horn, one of the brass instruments that I knew least about. Many of us play virtual versions of instruments with which we have little or no familiarity. However, there is little doubt that understanding each instrument better will help...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Dear Michael, I'm sorry to hear that the specific Main Volume CC2 assignment which fixes the issue for Strings, doesn't clear up things to your satisfaction. Of course everyone who uses Samplemodeling Virtual Instruments (SmVI) as well as most MIDI users are eagerly awaiting Hi Res MID, but it is un...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Dear Lele, As I reported assigning Main Volume to CC2 fixes the problem of starting and ending a note very close to silence for Strings, so I'm very happy. So many Thanks for solving that problem so fast. I was hoping to find a similar parameter for SWAM instruments other than Strings, but I didn't ...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

In addition to e-mailing a link to this thread to TEC, I also requested/suggested some improvements to their TEC BC Control Software: " The TEC control Software window is too small, so you provide the TAB "slider". It's frustrating to not be able to see ALL of the TABS at once, and it seems to me th...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Dear Michael & Lele, I'm indebted to your replies to my posts and I'm delighted to report that my Crescendo/Diminuendo Problem with the TEC BC2 is solved for the Strings by setting: 1- Main Volume to CC2 (found on the SWAM Main MIDI Settings Option page), and adjusting the 2 -TEC BC2 Breath Curve (R...

Re: TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

Michael, Thanks for your fast reply which immediately confirmed that my experience is not unique, due in some mysterious way to my setup. I'm amazed no one else has brought up this matter. On the other hand, too many musicians, pay far too little attention to dynamics, and the importance of the need...

TEC BC2 produces abrupt threshold

I've been a windcontroller player, but in order to play Strings better I got a TEC BC2 to use with a keyboard and it is really wonderful except for a serious problem. When I want to start a really soft note, there is no sound at all and then an abrupt start, after which the loudness works as expecte...

Re: SWAM Wind instrument controller remap

danmackey,

I agree that CC2 provides a much better result, esp with respect to Vibrato, but I haven't played with Harmonic Structure. Once I get taxes done, I will see if it works better for me and report back.

Thanks,

Dan
