An excellent instrument for near silent practise
Matthew R, 11.12.2017
I bought an Aerophone to use for practising when it would be antisocial to use my Alto or Tenor Sax. I expect to use it extensively when I'm on trips away in my motorhome but after only 3 days I have already found it useful when practising late in the evening at home, where the alternatives are "don't practise", or irate neighbours and potential divorce.

My early impressions are that the Aerophone can be set up to provide a useful practise instrument. Playing the Aerophone is not the same as playing a saxophone with a vibrating reed and column of air to control and manipulate. I'm experimenting with the breath and bite controls to see what can be achieved and, while it is not a saxophone, even out of the box its close enough for my purposes.

The only real negative so far is that the sound quality from the instrument itself is less than wonderful (classic British understatement), but when played through a decent set of headphones or a separate speaker the sound quality is vastly improved, to the point of being enjoyable and beyond.

I've only had the Aerophone for 3 days and so far have only scraped the surface of what it can do beyond being like a sax but I can see that there are plenty of features to explore that will keep me experimenting for some time to come.

Summary:
Pro - It is a useful practise intstrument for when playing a Saxophone is impractical.

Con - The standalone sound quality from the intstrument is tolerable but its not wonderful. The sound is vastly improved by use of heaphones or an external speaker.

v.a. für Saxophonisten
saxwood, 22.10.2019
Ich bin Saxophonist und wollte schon seit längerem einen Wind-Controller probieren. Eins vorweg: ich bin ein riesiger Michael Brecker-Fan und habe nach einer Möglichkeit zur Erzeugung von Synth-Klängen gesucht.

Vergangenen Monat war es dann soweit und ich bestellte mir einmal das Roland Aerophone AE-10 und einmal das Akai EWI 5000.

Aerophone:
Ich war eigentlich überrascht, wie leicht das Aerophone ist. Gut zum Halten, aber insgesamt wirkte es dann doch eher wie ein Spielzeug auf mich. Sehr viel Plastik, bei dem ich mir nicht sicher bin, wie robust das Teil dann wirklich ist. Für mich aber wichtig, da ich es auch live einsetzen möchte.

Als Saxophonist gewöhnt man sich aber durch das "Blatt" und der starken Anlehnung ans Saxophonist sehr schnell an die Spielweise mit dem Aerophone - beim EWI musste ich da schon etwas mehr üben. Der integrierte Lautsprecher ist aber eher nur zum Üben gut, der Sound haute mich nicht um. Da spielte ich dann doch lieber über meine Studio-Monitore.
Die Sounds waren im großen und ganzen ok. Synthetische Klänge waren dann doch nicht so viele drauf, da hätte ich mehr erwartet. Dafür sehr viele Samples realer Instrumente. Digitale Saxophon-Sounds finde ich jedoch oft sehr furchtbar, leider konnten auch die des Aerophone nicht völlig überzeugen. Positiv überrascht war ich jedoch vom Bass-Sound.
Die Funktionen des Joy-Sticks mit dem rechten Daumen waren zwar nett, aber etwas ungeschickt in der Bedienung.

Ich habe mich dann doch für den EWI entschieden. Grund waren zusammengefasst
- mehr synthetische Sounds
- Verarbeitung wirkte fertiger
- meiner Meinung nach mehr Möglichkeiten

Saxophonisten, die jedoch keinen zu großen Unterschied zum akustischen Instrument möchten oder eher nach einem Instrument mit Sounds von realen Instrumenten suchen empfehle ich jedoch eher zum Aerophone als zum EWI zu greifen.

L'uso per cui ho preso questo strumento è la possibilità di studiare la notte senza disturbare i miei familiari e i miei vicini.

E' molto facile da usare, anche se, volendolo usare senza pile, avere l'alimentare con il filo è un po' fastidioso.

Le caratteristiche sono ottime, inclusa la possibilità di regolare la sensibilità dell'ancia.

Il suono è un po' il punto debole... si tratta, naturalmente, di suoni molto finti.
Può essere interessante tuttavia selezionare i suoni più elettronici (sintetizzatori), per evitare di "simulare" i suoni acustici che non sono un gran che.
Per migliorare la qualità del suono, occorre lavorare con computer o con applicazioni... ma, dato l'uso che ne faccio, non ho mai provato.

Un punto di forza è la grande trasportabilità... è davvero leggerissimo!!!!!

Zarramplín, 26.04.2020
Llevo una temporada que por problemas de salud no puedo tocar mi saxo alto (me falta aire). Compré este artículo sin mucho optimismo pero... es fantástico, los sonidos en general son aceptables, algunos son casi iguales a los originales. El aerophone es absolutamente parametrizable, de forma que puedes adaptarlo totalmente a tus gustos o necesidades. Es genial para practicar sin molestar a nadie, y es fácil de utilizar. En definitiva una compra muy acertada, puede que a algunos no le satisfaga por aquello de "no es un instrumento de verdad" y es cierto, no es un saxo, ni una flauta, ni un oboe, ni una trompeta.... son todos en uno y en general se tocan igual o prácticamente igual que el saxo alto. Yo estoy encantado.
