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.

Reliable MIDI breath controller / pristine quality

DamnDog.pl, 18.08.2017
There was a total madness about MIDI controllers in 80s. Remember guitar synthesizers, keyboard hanging on belts and plastic drums? At that time, wind controllers were invented and the world had forgotten about them. Wrongfully. HornbergResearch released hb1 MIDI Breath Station. It transmits up to 4 independent streams of MIDI CC, each one with fully programable envelope. Really madness. I CAN RECOMEND IT!
