wind controller patches sounds soundbanks programs for ALESIS S4 QuadraSynth Wind Controller #1 - PATCHMAN MUSIC Volume 1 for the Alesis S4 and QuadraSynth contains 128 sounds specially designed by wind controller expert Matt Traum to be controlled with a wind controller such as the Yamaha WX5, WX7, WX11, WindJamm'r, Akai EWI, EWI5000, EWI4000s, EVI, Nyle Steiner MIDI EVI, Berglund NuEVI or NuRAD, MDT, Aodyo Sylphyo, or Softwind Synthophone. Keyboardists can enjoy these sounds by using a breath controller such as the TEControl breath controllers, or a Yamaha BC1, BC2, or BC3 breath controller plugged directly into a keyboard equipped with a breath controller input or into a device such as the MIDI Solutions Breath Controller Box or Anatek Wind Machine.

Alesis S4 QuadraSynth wind controller breath controlled patches sounds soundbanks library Patchman MusicPLEASE NOTE: These sounds require a wind controller or breath controller for proper use!

This soundbank features a superb palette of sounds providing almost every sound needed for a professional wind controller performance. It consists of a complete collection of highly expressive acoustic solo woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments, acoustic ensemble layers, unique morphed acoustic instrument patches, powerful synth leads, basses, guitars, and much more. Also featured are some highly bizarre specialty patches such as "*PhilGlass", "*Dimentia!" that must be heard to be believed. These patches really show off the Matrix Modulation capabilities of the S4 / QuadraSynth to the fullest! We have also included various chorded string, brass, and synth patches which allow you to provide a massive wall of sound from a single patch if desired!

This soundbank has been specifically programmed for use with the original Alesis S4 and QuadraSynth. We offer specific soundbanks for the various Alesis models. Click on the Alesis logo at the left for details on soundbanks for other Alesis models.

S4 and QuadraSynth Volume 1 HighlightsWind Controller EWI EVI WX

Patches 60, 61, 62, and 63 are unique "morphed patches". They are distinguished by having a "+" as the last letter of their name. These sounds are unique in that the sound morphs, or gradually changes, from one instrument to another depending on your breath level!

Patch 64, *Bagpipes, is an amazingly realistic bagpipe patch complete with the drones!

Patches 79 through 84 are specialty patches that use pitchbend in a unique way. Generally speaking, these sounds will introduce an additional pitch or two, or will change the chord quality in response to pitchbend data. For example, patch #83, "*mMSusStPB", plays a standard major chord when no pitchbend is added. If you add pitchbend down, the chord changes to a minor chord. If you add a pitchbend up, the chord becomes a suspended chord! Patch #82, "*OrchChdPB", changes from a unison string section sound to a chorded string section when you send a large pitchbend down value. Patch #79, "*DblStp1PB", changes from a single solo violin note to a double stopped sound when you send a large pitchbend down value. Patch #84, "*5ChordsPB", actually allows you to play 5 different chord types from this single patch!! No pitchbend = major. Small pitchbend down = minor chord. Large pitchbend down = diminished chord. Small pitchbend up = suspended chord. Large pitchbend up = a minor 4 chord.

Patches 126 and 127 are splits. They were inspired by the Miles Davis song called "So What". With this single patch, you can play the bass line to this song AND the chorded horn ensemble part simply by virtue of the range you play in!

We think you will find this soundbank to be pretty amazing!

 Please Note: This soundbank is specially designed for use with a wind controller or breath controller and thus requires one of these devices for proper use. These sounds require MIDI continuous controller #2 (breath controller) in order to make any sound. If you do not have a wind controller or breath controller you will probably not be able to use these sounds.

Synthophone Inventor Martin Hurni comments...

"Your sounds are fabulous and I've already used them in a short demo for Swiss television last Tuesday. Thank you and have a great day!"

Martin Hurni, Inventor or the Softwind Instruments Synthophone

"I am basking in the after glow this morning after experiencing yet another beautiful collection of sounds from Matt. It goes without saying that every module I own has Patchman patches in it. This set is an incredible collection because, like all the patches I've bought, they are so musical! That's really where the rubber hits the road for me. It's OK for a patch to sound cool or intriguing but if it can't respond to the will of the player then it is useless. The S4 voices represent an opportunity for me to create more music within the confines of my studio work because of the inspiration behind them. Matt really is an artist and we're lucky to have somebody like him to create these beautiful pieces of art for us to use and enjoy. Hats off to Matt for his hard work and determination in developing and providing myself and others in the wind controller realm with yet another muse inspiring sound set. - A Very Satisfied Customer."
