The Yamaha WX11 Electronic Woodwind Instrument (EWI) is a vintage wind controller introduced in the 1980s. It is able to produce 128 instruments/sounds and has a 5 octave capability giving great variety to any performance.  The fingering is similar to that of the saxophone and like an electronic keyboard, it sends midi information to a tone generator(Yamaha WT11)  which generates the sounds or special effects. The permanent mouthpiece and reed convert wind and lip pressure information to midi data which is interpreted by the tone generator. Other features include full midi capability when using the Yamaha BT7 midi pack, simultaneous note output, adjustable to all 12 keys, and new sounds can be created and saved to the Yamaha WT11 sound module.

            MobileJazzImprov, is a solo performance act which uses hundreds of backtracks with saxophone, and the Electronic Woodwind Instrument. A vocalist is added on many types of performances. Contact at:
