TEC has introduced the TEControl USB MIDI Breath and Bite Controller – a MIDI wind controller that they say ‘enables musicians and composers to achieve outstanding realism in their performance when using computer-based virtual instruments.”
With a bite sensor integrated in the mouthpiece sensing lip bite force in addition to breath pressure, it is possible to control any two parameters of your virtual instrument, for example expression/vibrato or expression/pitch.
- Sensitive to breath pressure and lip bite force
- Insensitive to ambient pressure
- Software configurable (independently for breath and bite) min/max sensor input and MIDI out ranges, sensitivity curve, attack/decay filter, MIDI channel and MIDI CC, Pitch bend or Aftertouch
- Save and load your presets
- Full resolution for all input ranges (MIDI 0-127)
- Firmware upgradable for future enhancements
- USB-MIDI class compliant, Plug&Play out of the box on Windows and Mac
- USB powered
- Configuration Utility available for Windows and MAC, tested on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 (excluding RT), OS X 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9
The TEControl USB MIDI Breath and Bite Controller is priced at 189.99 EUR (ex VAT). See the Tecontrol site for details.
