AK's work on a substitute for the BC series is very commendable. As I understand it, the harmonica holder is just for the demo model and there will be some other way to wear it. The conversion box that brings it to a 1/4" out also has a 1/4" in so you can still use a regular expression pedal.

I am anxiously awaiting reviews from the people here that have ordered the TEC model, especially those who plan to use it with the Kronos.

Hey all- Kronos os is class-complaint as is the TEControl. Theoretically, it should work. I've contacted the company and they said the product hasn't been tested with Kronos, though.- Tim

Has no one tried it out on Kronos yet?

It is plug & play direct into the Kronos! It comes preset to MIDI CC02 and if you download Busch's breathcontroller programs, the TEC BC works perfectly right out of the box.

That said, I think the mouthpiece is quite lacking and I think I will try to fashion something else to use.

Regards,

MM

As it turns out, the mouth piece from an old broken yamaha BC-2 fits perfectly on the tubing provided and it provides a much more comfortable bite.


Regards,

MM

Many thanks mm-pro. Just put mine on order. I assume the tubing is long enough to reach the back of the Kronos and not get in the way.

Plenty long, I cut about a foot off. I am running it under the keyboard, though.

They are on Bill Busch's Kronos Blog:

http://thekronosblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/brass-winds-breath-controller.html

I had the wrong link for a second, but fixed now.

I received my TEControl breath controller too and can confirm it works perfectly. Recommended.

I ordered mine on the 20th...it probably depends on customs at whatever airport/port it comes into the country.
