The Yamaha VL70-m synth is "Virtual Acoustic" device, which is to say rather than sampling a sound, it emulates the physics of an "instrument" - I put that in quotes because it can apparently do blown strings and bowed tubes, which are Quite Hard in Real Life. Best controlled using a wind controller such as the WX11 also on offer, or a WX5 which gives a bit more control.

The Patchman Turbo VL upgrade is best described by the supplier here.

VL70-m comes with manual, UK power supply and the original factory EPROM, if you want to see what those sounds were like, though this does involve opening the case and changing the chip over.

WX11 comes with the long cable that connects directly to the VL70-m, plus its manual. I do have the battery pack for it, which gives you a normal MIDI connector, if you want it. No pix of this, but if you're desperate I can take some at some point.

Everything is in good order, never gigged, non-smoking home (the times I've fallen foul of that last one - yuck...).

VL70-m kit : £550 SOLD
WX11 : £150
Shipping/insurance extra, CLOSE offers considered, you're welcome to come and try it out by arrangement.

Oh, and my spare tenor IS still available!

Cheers

Jonathan

Hi,

I may be interested in buying the VL70m - I'm considering to buy this and Yamaha WX5 to practice at night when I can't use my sax. I'm new to the site so I don't know how should I contact you, etc. Please let me know.

Best,
Marek

Hi Steve

It is indeed. I'd send you a PM, but I can't, possibly because you only registered recently? Not sure. May be worth introducing yourself at "The Doorbell"... Anyway, I'll put you first in the queue (hah...) until we can get the lines of communication straightened out.

Best regards

Jonathan

Hi folks

Just to say the WX11 is still available. The kit now consists of:
  • WX11
  • soft carry case
  • long cable (for connection to Yamaha WT11 or VL70-m)
  • manual
  • BT7 battery & MIDI converter (for use with other synths)
Having had a bit pf a play recently, I can confirm that it's possible to use the BT7 with a 12V power supply (instead of 6 AAs), and also that the long cable will plug into its short one, so you can use the controller with non-Yamaha synths without clipping the BT7 to your belt, or having to use batteries.

Cheers

Jonathan
