Each of these soundbanks contains 64 Voices specially designed to be played with a wind controller such as the WX5, WX7, WX11, WindJamm'r, EVI, MIDI EVI, Akai EWI and EVI, EWI5000, EWI4000s, MDT, or Synthophone. Keyboardists can also enjoy these highly expressive sounds by using a Yamaha BC1, BC2, or BC3a breath controller plugged directly into the VL or VL1-m.

VL7 owners click here for details on our VL7 soundbanks!

 Please Note: These soundbanks are specially designed for use with a wind controller or breath controller and thus they require 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.

Mark Douthit Patchman Music

Wind Controller Virtuoso Mark Douthit Comments...

"I have been playing the EWI for about a decade now, and have used it on hundreds of albums. I am a Yamaha artist, so I have the entire library of sounds for the VL1-m. In spite of this, I continue to gravitate to the two disks of sounds you programmed a few years back for the VL1-m. Your sounds just respond better and frankly sound much better than Yamaha's. PLEASE tell me that you have more of these wonderful sounds available for the VL1-m!! As I continue to use the EWI in more and more exciting applications, the sounds fall under much more scrutiny. Therefore, I am starved to get my hands on sounds that show that someone actually put some time in on them." - Mark Douthit, sax/wind controller player on over 4,000 albums. Has recorded with Whitney Houston, The Neville Brothers, Elton John, Patti LaBelle, Natalie Cole, The Temptations, Michael McDonald, Billy Preston, Take 6, Donna Summer, Don Henley, Vanessa Williams, Billy Joel, Kirk Whalum, Larry Carlton and many more

"Your stuff is great. I am just starting to get the EWI back in shape for the new tour and will be using your sounds extensively. All the best." - Ed Calle, Grammy Nominated, Sony Latin Recording Artist and wind controller virtuoso. Has worked with Steve Gadd, John Pattitucci, Arturo Sandoval, and many other top professionals

Martin Hurni Synthophone Patchman Music

Synthophone Inventor Martin Hurni Comments...

"I'm truly impressed! Your sounds are very creative and are a real expansion to my setup. Thank you for your great input into my VL1-m and for your GREAT work you put into wind synthesis. I will spread the word about Patchman as much and as often as I can!" - Martin Hurni, Inventor or the Softwind Instruments Synthophone

"The sounds are great! I especially love the exotic flute stuff." - Rob Mounsey - Grammy nominated producer, synthesist, arranger for Burt Bacharach, Paul Simon, Michael Franks, Donald Fagen, Eric Clapton.

"Matt, hope all is well. There are some nice sounds on your VL1 banks. Take care." - Scott Kinsey - Keyboardist & Leader of Tribal Tech, Movie Composer, and more.

"Four banks of sounds optimized very well for wind controllers. The banks are arranged very logically. The highlight for me is the distorted lead sound- it is absolutely indistinguishable from the real 'take no prisoners' guitar sound. Bottom line, there's more than enough on this disk to say without hesitation that anyone with a VL1 and a breath controller should pick it up without passing Go. And it's a bargain." - Recording Magazine 12/95

"The greatest collection of wind patches can be found in Patchman Music's collection for the VL1. These sounds are truly extraordinary. Exquisite patches... even mind-boggling..." - Aron Nelson (Opcode Programmer, Galaxy Specialist)

"I would say that [the Patchman Music] disk is a no-brainer for several banks of very good sounds. There's an excellent flute on Volume 1. It sounds and reacts just like a flute. Also, the same bank has a flugelhorn patch that you'd swear was Muck Changione. The flugelhorn is one of the all-time best VL sounds." - Recording Magazine

"Got disks today!!! Great programming!!!!" - Jose Lugo (Latin recording artist)

"I purchased your 2 banks of VL1 patches a couple of years back, and have been delighted with them. In fact, the venerable 'Sledgeflute' has become a signature sound for one of the series I compose the music for. The show, 'Beastmaster' is probably carried on your local TV, if you're interested. Kind of in the Xena / Hercules genre, but a little more in the jungle - you can hear your patch right up there in the main theme and plenty more (including others from your collection) thru the body of the show."

"I strongly urge you to check out the Patchman VL soundbanks, especially if you use a windcontroller. First off, I think that Patchman has done a good job in 'thinking' out the design of these sounds. Muted brass sounds were nice and the Patchman flutes were major improvements - especially nice was the SLEDGEFLUTE patch I played - and I was pleased to find ... improved violin, string and cello sounds. The flute patches give away, somewhat, Patchman's considerable expertise, skill and experience with a vast body of classic analog synths - the synth sounds are terrific! Plenty of interesting Moogs, ARPs, and other innovative synth and analog type flavors here! Patchman really seems to know its synth sounds thoroughly - really, overall, I am quite pleased with what I have played... I am in good hands with Patchman behind the edit screens."

"...we were in the middle of a 70's 'trance' groove when it came time for me to solo - turning the VL wheel, I landed on EWI Arp (a terrific Patchman analog voice) and decided to shirk my emulative ways and try something different. The results were unusually gratifying! I played a few licks and started controlling the filters with breath to make a texture when I activated the gliss control and the notes melded together in a beautiful slur of controlled pitchbend - IT WAS GREAT! It had that seventies porno-soundtrack quality that everyone loves and the band and crowd went NUTS! Anyway, I remain impressed with the Patchman analog work - I have heard a real ARP before and Patchman comes remarkably close to the real thing."

"Thanks and congratulations on fine sets of patches (Vols 1 and 2) for the VL1. I stayed up 'til 4 am the night they arrived (a big mistake - hard on the day gig :-)"

"I got your VL1 sounds last week! I like many of them... the violins and trombones are very inspiring. Thank You very much."

"It was a pleasure to load in your bank and get such easy to play, responsive sounds. I like the flutter tongue sound when you engage controller 5 with the mouthpiece!"

"The wind controller is a way for me to get the tone and range that I like in guitars. Of course, having a VL1 with Patchman's guitar sounds doesn't hurt. :) ... You ought to hear some of the 'electric' sounding patches on [Patchman's] latest Volume of sounds for VL1. Prophet, Oberheim,... Plenty of good sounds here, for not too much $$. I've got both sets, and use the sounds regularly on gigs. (Nice Lyle patch!)"

"After playing ... the Patchman Brecker layers, well as several other patches, I felt as if I have wasted the last year ignoring the VL. The responsiveness is amazing. The sounds are amazingly complex. This, quite frankly, is what I originally wanted to be able to do with my WX7 for the last 9 years. Special kudos to Matt at Patchman."

"I can't say again, how blown away I was by those sounds - makes me feel like I have a new instrument. Keep on programming sounds for the VL1 so that I don't have to! :-)"

"I bought Volume 1 and 2 of your wind patches for VL1. The sounds are stunning, keep up the good work."

"What amazing service! Got stuck for awhile on the Trombone which is absolutely stunning! Many thanks."

"I'm really pleased with your patches! I'm currently putting together my 'performance bank' .all file, and am finding that 80% of it is from your disks. (LOVE '*So What!' - if only as a novelty. It's a blast to be around a bunch of horn players, noodling around on the bass for a minute, start in on 'So What!' and then out come the VL horns with the response. Drops 'em off their chairs!)"

"Thanks for the patches, which are fantastic! The VL1 trumpets and violins are enormously superior to the factory ones (ie - they convince me!). There's some really nice stuff in there. Nice!"
