Live Online #143: Torn

I had an unpleasant experience doing a real-world performance some months ago where Windows 7 decided to do an update right as I was about to start my set. Somehow the Novation Nio’s midi driver got borked in the process and I ended up having to do the 4 hour set with no wind controller 8^/ Although it wasn’t Reason’s fault, I’ve been looking at my existing hardware to replace it as tone generator with the WX-5 wind controller. So, after scratching my head for months for a way to get my Shruthi-1 to respond to breath control, I thought I’d just plug the WX in and see what it does. It turns out that although I could find no mention of the fact in the documentation, the Shruthi-1 responds to breath control (MIDI cc2) out of the box. Bonus! Breath appears to be hardwired to filter cutoff. I’m still experimenting, but you can hear my playing the Shruthi-1 via the WX-5 all over this set. Enjoy!
