Yamaha's super-dooper new electro trumpet

Good to see Yamaha's new virtual trumpet (here) is still taking (subtle) design cues from their legendary WX-7, the MIDI wind controller (kind of a digital saxophone), which was just abou the most high-tech thing I'd ever seen in the late 1987. Craig has a rare red one. Alternatively, you could build your own, even if it looks like you're blowing into a giant cockroach/mallard hybrid. Everything you ever wanted to know about wind controllers is here. And yes, I know that the new Yamaha thing is so much more than a MIDI controller, and will launch us into a bold new era of high-tech brass buskers... (Via Engadget)
