Tom Scott Patchman Music

Wind Controller Virtuoso Tom Scott comments...

"I really love your VL70-m sounds!! I will begin incorporating your sounds into my concert set starting next weekend in Minneapolis. All the best. Thanks again."

Tom Scott, world reknown recording artist, sax and wind controller virtuoso, arranger.

Each soundbank contains 60 all-new, professional Custom Voices for the Yamaha VL70-m Virtual Acoustic Tone Generator. These sounds have been specially designed to be used with a wind controller such as the Yamaha WX5, WX7, WX11, WindJamm'r, Nyle Steiner's MIDI EVI/EWI, Akai EWI, EVI, MDT, or Softwind Synthophone. These highly expressive sounds are also fantastic for keyboardists when used with a Yamaha BC1, BC2, or BC3 plugged directly into the VL70-m, or into a keyboard equipped with a breath controller input, or plugged into a device such as the MIDI Solutions Breath Controller Box or Anatek Wind Machine. These are the most responsive sounds available in the world for the amazingly powerful and versatile VL70-m! These sounds require a wind controller or breath controller for proper use.

 MU100R, MU128R, & PLGVL Soundcard Owners

These VL70-m sounds CAN be used with the Yamaha PLGVL card as found in the Yamaha MU100R/MU128R with a few differences. Since the PLGVL card handles digital effects differently, the VL70-m effects do not get transmitted to the card. Thus, any VL70-m voices that are sent to the VL card or to the MU100R or MU128R will have the effects settings replaced by default "GM-style effects"- e.g. Reverb and Chorus. Also, these sounds are loaded into the Cst bank and thus are not saved when you power down the host synth. Additional info can be found in the Wind Controller FAQ.

Yamaha VL70-m VL70m VL-70m patches voices sounds breath controlled wind controller at Patchman Music Macintosh Users...

If you are using an older Mac, we recommend downloading and using the Yamaha Expert Editor or the Yamaha Visual Editor for Mac available here. Please note that these are very old programs and don't run on newer Macs. Either of these programs allow you to view and audition individual Voices and save them to one of the 6 Custom Voice locations within the VL70-m. These editors are OMS compatible. They will also work directly via the Modem port without the need for OMS or MIDI Manager. If you wish to use the Printer port without OMS you will need to use Apple MIDI Manager.

Yamaha VL70-m VL70m VL-70m patches voices sounds breath controlled wind controller at Patchman Music PC Users...

RECOMMENDED: If you are using a very old PC, we recommend using the VL70-m PC Expert Editor for Windows available available here. Please note that these are very old programs and don't run on newer PCs. Be sure to download the instructions as well. Unlike Yamaha's Visual Editor, the Expert Editor IS able to save a Voice to a Custom Voice location. Questions regarding this editor software should be directed to its authors not to Patchman Music. Additional help can be found in the Wind Controller FAQ here.

PLG150-VL Users: The Yamaha Visual Editor for the PLG150-VL Card version DOES have the ability to save a Voice to one the 6 VL Custom memory slots in the PLG150-VL card as well as a VL70-m! Use the "VL Load Voice..." option under the File Menu to access this feature.

VeggieTales DVD Patchman Music

Composer Kurt Heinecke comments...

"I've got Matt's patches for the Yamaha VL70-m, Alesis S4+ and NanoSynth, and the Roland JV-1010. His patches really bring each module to life. Even cheaper and older modules like the S4+ and NanoSynth gain a second life. As an example, I've used Matt's cello patch from the S4+ in a string quartet and fooled one of the quartet members as she was entering practice- she heard the cello but didn't see me, and was wondering what cello player they had found! Matt goes the extra mile and takes the time to layer voice elements like breath noise, key clicks, and other subtle sounds into appropriate patches. Thanks for creating the S4+ bank- it gave me reason to track down and buy this older (but still powerful) module! I've used Matt's acoustic emulations in live settings with great success. His acoustic emulations have also worked well in my writing for VeggieTales and I often use his VL70-m flute and NanoSynth clarinet in orchestral settings." - Kurt Heinecke, composer/musician VeggieTales

"I have been consistently disappointed with the quality of [synthesized] wind instruments (being a horn player myself) until I heard the Yamaha VL70-m demos on Patchman Music's site. I was totally stunned. I realize that the level of expression heard there is only possible with a wind controller (I'm willing to learn), but the realism is what totally caught me off guard. I know now that as a horn player, I will never be satisfied with synthesized sounds unless I learn to use a wind controller. I can't imagine another instrument being better than the VL70-m with a wind controller for solo work."

"I recently purchased your VL70-m patches, and they have significantly enhanced my enjoyment of this terrific sound module. It's fantastic to be able to produce authentic sounding brass and woodwinds, and I have no reservations about soloing with these instruments - something I previously could never do."

"Once again, great patches. If you own a VL70-m, you should own this Volume. I'm especially impressed with the bowed strings. Also, how in the world did you program '*Brecker'? Thanks for your great work."

"I just tried multitrack recording myself playing [Patchman Music's] great string patches on the VL70-m using Cubase VST (PC), playing a string quartet -amazing! If you manage to get the "bowing" etc right, the effect, especially with 2 violins, viola and cello is as close as I've ever heard any synthesizer get to reproducing strings. Great patches, Matt!"

"The patch library from Patchman for the VL70-m is excellent. Some great sax sounds, as well as others. I especially enjoyed the ancient flute sounds! Keep up the good work! Looking forward to Volume 2."

"To cut to the chase, as they say, YOUR PATCHES SOUND GREAT!! I'm very happy with the patches! Now it's time to get back to work on the music, and deal with that universal VL70-m dilemma: which 54 patches can I live without in my Custom Bank? You epitomize excellence in customer service!"

"I have to say this...while practicing tonight I had to stop and clear some tears from my eyes. We live in such a time of blessing when Nyle could invent this wonderful instrument...and the sounds that are possible thanks to folks like Matt....and Yamaha and Roland of course. I now have back what I lost 14 years ago and MORE thanks to these fine folks. What fun it is to work through the Clark studies... the Arban... all those old work horse solos I tackled year ago... sigh... I don't think that we truly have a grasp of how good we have it. Having a moment..."

"I just wanted to say I'm glad you guys produced this. It is really a worthwhile investment. I especially like the first trumpet patch. It is a big improvement on the factory presets. Also the trombone is much better than factory. Again, thanks. I've really been enjoying playing the trumpet patch."

"My first need was for a cello, in order to provide continuo for a small chamber group. The results blew us all away. A fantastic sound, and as expressive and playable as one would expect a *real* acoustic instrument to be. Thank you for providing the means to a great playing experience for all of us. It is now a fixture on my playlist."

"I just have to remember to go to work tomorrow and stop playing with my new toy."

"First of all I just want to say how much I have enjoyed the Patchman's VL70-m library. I can't wait to get my hands on Volume 2. TenorSax has blown away the folks I play with! Your Clarinet patch is extremely realistic as well!"

"First I want to congratulate you for Volume 1 (VL70-m)! It is really great! Thank you for this work! Have a good time - and keep grooving!"

"I currently play a WX11/VL70m. I couldn't be happier with the VL70m Volume 1 patches I purchased from you - they continue to amaze me."

"The cool thing about the Tenorsx patch is consistency of sound or timbre across all octaves."

"The VL sounds are great! The string patches are the best I've heard. I like the guitars too- Wes is my favorite. I like the horns too. They're all good."

"I've just finished doing a series of brass quintets for Christmas. At the start of one of the rehearsals the tuba player no-showed. I switched over to [Patchman Music's] tuba patch and picked up the tuba book. At the end of the first piece the trumpet players just stopped playing and said, 'Man, that tuba is incredible!'. The director leaned over and turned up the volume on my Eon 10 while I was playing. It's a killer patch - just the right amount 'fhhooo'. Great work Matt."

"I've used the Patchman Tuba patch in a brass quintet, and had a blast with it. The best part of the fun was when people came up afterward and wanted to know how I was getting those deep oom-pahs out of the little black recorder."

"My symphonic trumpet is a mod of the Patchman trumpet (records BEAUTIFULLY). And I am (was?) a trumpet player. It is the only trumpet I've found that really works in the low register. The Patchman flute works great - easy to control and has nice breath and pad noise."
