Control your performance and then some!

David9624, 22.09.2016
I purchased the hb1 some months ago and have had time to get to know this excellent piece of kit a bit better. First off the build quality of this unit far exceeds all expectations, one can tell immediately that the designer and manufacturer really do care about their product. This care and attention does not stop there, I had occasion to contact a member of the team who Skyped me back and gave me a one to one tutorial on the features and possible combinations, yes you can combine presets to interact within the same patch, it used to be two presets, I believe it is now four. Like any new instrument and this is an instrument, there is a learning curve, you put some effort into the technique and one is rewarded with expression not achievable with pedals and mod wheels. Fantastic!
Dave Lawson.

Really impressive

ChristophZ, 22.01.2017
My application and evaluation basis:
I use my Midi-Breath station to control a variety of parameters within Omnisphere 2.
Already soon. This is really fantastic.

To make clear which modulation power unfolds in the connection of these two components, here are some information and descriptions to get an idea of ??it.

Omnisphere 2:
Omnisphere is a software tool that allows you to make deep adjustments to the sound of a sound, even in real-time.

In Omnisphere, for example, I build a so-called multipatch, which can consist of 8 drawers each with 2 sounds, ie a total of 16 individual sounds.
I can fire up to 16 individual sounds on my Masterkeyboard at the same time.
Virtually all virtual encoders within such a multipatch (volume, panorama, LFO`s, filters, effect parameters of all kinds, ...) are equipped with a "Midi Learn" function. So very, very, very many modulation sources.

Midi Breath Station:
If I have connected the MidiBreath station correctly (simple thing), the MidiLearn function is very fast and easy:
In Omnisphere, I right-click on the slider, which I want to control, select MidiLearn and blow into my Breath station. Controller moves with. It worked. Is noted. Finished. Next control. ... Next control, ... With the "unlearn" function, I can undo it again.
So I can use a blow pulse very many functions on all sounds independently and simultaneously steplessly up and down drive.
This is fun to experiment with and play.

The MidiBreath station itself can be programmed in its response, response range and the dynamic range of the MIDI data between 0-127 and stored as a program / preset. Corresponding presentation videos show the possibilities. The whole thing seems very thoughtful to me.
In the current software version, up to four different programs / presets can work simultaneously on four mid channels simultaneously and independently as modulators.
There goes something

The programming on the device works quite well, but I am too confusing, since only one thing is displayed on the display. Parameter name or a numeric value.
Dear developer, I would be very pleased about an editor software.

Processing & Design:
Great. Obviously developed with love and manufactured.
Everything is incl. A second mouthpiece (big & small), transport bag made of felt, Schwanenhals system for freehanding and putting off the mouthpiece, USB cable, good instructions in English and German. ..

Response, control:
The system is very dense and translates to the most subtle changes when blowing into midi data.
It is also possible to work with vacuum, ie suction. The parameters can be individually and finely adjusted in the response behavior and course.

The prize is proud.
I regret nothing.

Support:
Had sent an email because of a question and then a very helpful phone call with one of the developers.

Thomann:
Everything worked out very well. Thank you.
