IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

The XPression is a professional grade instrument which requires a certain minimum musical background in order to fully unfold its potential. It demands special playing techniques that are different from other wind controller sound modules or software instruments on the market. These techniques need to be known in order
to achieve good sounding and expressive results. Once you know how to play the XPression as intended you
will see that the XPression can emulate acoustic instruments much better than any other sound generator
currently on the market.

Please watch these videos in order to understand:
XPression Overview Part1 XPression Overview Part2 XPression Overview Part3
Give us a call on skype for more detailed information!

The XPression serves not only the pro but also allows a beginner to advance with his/her playing technique as
the XPression mirrors their progress on the wind controller unlike other instruments that will play and sound always as on day one - no matter how hard you practice.

The XPression requires a percfectly calibrated wind controller that is capable of sending a usable MIDI signal similar to the specs of the EWI / EVI. Not all wind controllers on the market meet these requirements for various reasons.

Therefore we will only support the AKAI EWI (or EVI), Yamaha WX series and the Softwind Synthophone.
Setup details are provided by DynaSample. We are happy to help you with your setup on Skype.
Other controllers may work but might not be directly supported by DynaSample, i.e. you need to figure out
yourself how to set them up correctly.
The list will be updated after successfully testing further wind controllers.

Thank you!

THE XPRESSION LE HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED !


All additional libraries will still be available in the future
and there will be 100% support for current XPRESSION LE users !
Upgrades with single libraries or to the full license are still possible anytime.


XPression LE
(LE = Light Edition)
XPression

The XPression LE is absolutely identical with the full-featured XPression but ships
with a limited sound library and a restricted graphical patch editor.

All missing libraries and the editor can be purchased and activated later.

There is a limited number of instruments from each instrument category below included in the basic library.
After that you can purchase packages one by one for activating all available instruments within that group.
(This also includes all future updates for this group - e.g. if you are getting the brass package
the upcoming cornet and other new brass instruments will be free of charge, etc.):

- Woodwinds (249.00 EUR / USD) *
- Saxophones (249.00 EUR / USD) *
- Brass (249.00 EUR / USD) *
- Stringed instruments (bowed & plucked) (249.00 EUR / USD) *
- Keys & Mallets (149.00 EUR / USD) *
- Synth incl. the graphical patch editor (149.00 EUR / USD) *
(All libraries can be authorized within 30 days after receiving the unit for only 1.145.00 EUR / USD *)

+ There is a "trial mode" for checking out ALL available instruments with no restrictions for 5 minutes.
Then the entire instrument will be muted and a restart is required.

+ The graphical editor can be used with no restrictions but after opening it "saving" patches will be disabled
until you restart the unit - as long as the editor is not authorized.

A patch list is here:

* Within the European Union this includes the German VAT of 19% - outside of Europe there is no VAT included.

Itai also uses XPression for teaching "real instrument" emulations due to XPression's great and realistic playing response.


Alistair Parnell will be performing during the 16th World Saxophone Congress between the 10th to the 15th July 2012 in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland, UK on both the saxophone and the EWI. He will also give a lecture on the EWI during this week.
