Topic: I got a new amp.

More expensive than any of my bocals, but for me it's worth it. I'm just so pleased with it I thought I'd share a video.

Re: I got a new amp.

I know you jest, and to be honest I use a Yamaha WX5 for that

But I used to own one of these:

Which works ... OK with the bassoon. I had the first version about two years ago and it was very prone to latency and incorrect tracking. Maybe it's better now, I don't know. Might be worth checking out if they've improved the pitch tracking and latency. Still never would be as good as a dedicated midi controller though since it doesn't send as many control parameters.

Re: I got a new amp.

EWIs get way too bad of a rap. I had the AKAI fancy one with the built-in synth for awhile, and should not have let it go. I know a lot of people don't like the feel of it, but man, they are sweet.

Mopho is pretty sweet too, if you like crushing basses! big_smile
