The Yamaha WX11 Digital Wind Instrument – A Breath of Fresh Air [VIDEO]

My local Yamaha music dealer who specialises in keyboards, digital pianos and classic organs asked me to record and edit a short video today of him playing the Yamaha WX11 digital wind instrument. When this device was first released, it was the era of FM quality voices – notorious for their pretty basic representations of real-life instruments. Roger Hagarty has written an article for a future edition of the Yamaha Club magazine where he explains how using modern musical instruments such as a Yamaha Tyros3 as used in this video, you can now achieve fantastic and more importantly ‘realistic’ results with this classic digital wind instrument using a MIDI connection.
