Hi everyone,

I consider getting Waldorf Blofeld as expander module for my Akai EWI. Is that possible to map aftertouch/breath controller to VCA Gain level in Blofeld? EWI 4000s Midi implementation chart says that module can transmit volume changes as the following continuous control messages:

Volume (07)
Aftertouch
Expression (11)
Breath Control (02)

Is that possible to map one of these messages in that synth Question I would like to be able to do single-note crescendos with synth, like on traditional wind instrument, but today I was told that Clavia Nord Lead 2X Rack, which I considered as first expander module to try (along with DSI Evolver), doesn't work so well with wind controllers. As far as I know, in Evolver there's possible routing breath to VCA, but DSI product is monophonic, and EWI needs at least duophonic synth as a expander, to allow octave & sostenuto functions, so I don't really want to give up these. I need at least duophonic lead type synthesizer with strong focus on leads and basses for jazz-rock/fusion music.

Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Szymon
