    It has USB to transmit MIDI data. One of the settings is which MIDI channel you want to send.

    From the manual:

    USB COMPUTER port
    Use a commercially available USB 2.0 cable to connect this port to your computer. It can be used to transfer USB MIDI data.

    MIDI Transmit Channel Settings (MIDI Transmit Ch)
    This setting specifies the MIDI channel on which the unit will transmit. This unit will receive all sixteen channels (116).

    So in this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqhHVfNQmHg, how do I tell the soft synth that the AE-10 is the input device? Will it automatically map breath control to volume?

    I have no idea. But you can email Roland and ask them a question.

    The Aerophone is USB Class compliant so you hook it up to your computer via the Aerophone USB-B, or to sound modules using a USB- MIDI box. So far, I have only used the built-in sounds and play it as a stand alone instrument hooked up to my PA system. All of your questions I think are better answered/ covered in the Wind Controllers Forum (http://www.patchmanmusic.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=54). You need to sign up like you just did here.

    For those who are interested, Musician's Friend extended their President's Day discount, which I got to work for the Aerophone by placing a phone order (Roland doesn't allow their gear to be discounted online). When I ordered last week the sales guy said they expected to have units in stock on 2/24, even though the website said 3/3. With the discount it came out to about $670, with free shipping and no tax in NY. Looking forward to my new practice aid.

    Dayum, that's a good deal. Still, I've been having so much fun with mine I'm glad I didn't wait for the deal price.

    I've been taking mine to the weekly pro jam and blowing people's minds with its 6-octave range. With the sustain cc, I can play chords. When I switch to the overdriven lead guitar sound, people turn their heads and go WTF is that? The jam leader calls it The Thing.

    I REALLY want one of these but I'm being a good boy and focusing on my Tenor for now. Part of me would like to skip all the hassles of developing a sax embouchure but I keep telling myself it's the right thing to do.

    Or you can have both! Focus on the acoustic tenor during the day (for proper embouchure and personal sound/style development), and use the Aerophone with earphones at night practicing scales and learning new songs quietly (for finger dexterity)..

    Hmmmm ... $1100 for a Tenor Sax and then $800 for an Aerophone. My wife might kick me out of the house.
