A Power Supply and MIDI Interface for WX Wind Synth Controllers

wwbat WindWorks Design is pleased to introduce the WW-Bat, a compact, lightweight phantom power supply and MIDI interface designed for WX-series wind synthesizer controllers.

The WW-Bat was designed and built by wind synth musicians for wind synth musicians. It replaces the old Yamaha BT7 (BT-7). You can now plug a WX-series controller into any synthesizer. Use a WX cable (not included, but available separately) to connect your WX-series wind controller to the "WX In" jack, and use a standard MIDI cable (not included) to plug the WW-Bat into any synthesizer that has a standard MIDI-in jack. Click here to see how the WW-Bat can be used.

wwbat The WW-Bat uses a single alkaline 9-volt battery for power, not a bunch of AA batteries to fumble with as was the case for Yamaha's old BT7 interface. Don't like to use batteries for a gig? There is also a DC Power connector built in, for use with the optional DC Power Adapter (available separately).

"For those of you who do not have a WX port on your synthesizer, the WW-Bat is, in my opinion, the best way to power your WX series MIDI wind controller. The WW-Bat does what the now discontinued BT7 did, only it does it better." said Bob Norton, professional wind synth musician and owner of Norton Music.

wwbat The WW-Bat has a sturdy metal clip. Just plug in, clip it onto your rack case or belt, and you're ready to play. The WW-Bat is lightweight and small, about the size of a deck of cards. But don't let the size fool you. This is a rugged little unit.

The WW-Bat comes with an instruction sheet that shows you all you need to know about how to plug in and use your WW-Bat. Professional players will find the WW-Bat useful to take along on gigs, becoming an essential accessory.

"I must offer you my serious congratulations on a job well done. Well worth waiting for and it looks great too... like a serious piece of equipment for a professional musician instead of the "music toy" look for overgrown musical infants," said Gil Melle, jazz musician, composer, electronic instrument inventor, and Prestige recording artist.
