Configurable Breath Controller with USB-MIDI class compliant interface, flexible headset, bite force sensitive mouthpiece and head inclination sensor.
With sample libraries getting better and better and physical modeling advancing to incredible realism, the need for good controllers is obvious. The new USB MIDI Breath and Bite Controller 2 (BBC2) provides quadruple hands-free continuous controllers: Breath, Bite and in addition Nod and Tilt sensors. These allow musicians to add nuanced expression and amazing realism to their performance, as James Newman cleverly demonstrated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5f6rH_J_uE.
Four completely independent MIDI streams generate data corresponding to the physical variables sensed by each of the sensors:
Our proven embedded signal processing algorithms guarantee full resolution over all sensor input ranges. MIDI messages are transmitted only when sensor data cause the MIDI output value to change. Thanks to the same state-of-art piezoelectric pressure sensor used in our earlier breath controller models, the latency is minimal and the response to breath pressure is fast and sensitive enough to even allow flutter tonguing in real time as demonstrated by Ramiro Gomez Massetti: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y0A2IylNNw.
The BBC2 is suitable for both studio and live use. Wix Wickens, Paul McCartney's keyboard wizard, is among our many customers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23Zy24AC6DE.
The BBC2 is fully USB-MIDI class compliant and works out of the box with the built-in operating system USB-MIDI class drivers on both Windows and Mac computers, as well as any other class compliant USB host such as the Korg Kronos. The Configuration Utility works on Windows and Mac computers and allows easy and independent setting of parameters such as input/output range, sensitivity curve, attack/decay filter response as well as MIDI Channel, MIDI CC, Pitch bend or Aftertouch.
The integrated headset can be bent to a comfortable shape and worn around either the head or the neck, depending on individual preference.
The mouthpiece has an adjustable bleed valve similar in concept to that found on the famous - and now discontinued - Yamaha BC3 breath controller. The mouthpiece is protected by a food-grade plastic cover that can withstand teeth pressure and can easily be removed for cleaning or replacing. Replacement covers are also available for sale separately. Please note that based on customer feedback we changed the color of the mouthpiece covers from white to black, to improve the cosmetic appearance. This does not change the functionality in any way.
