If you can forgive the Youtube videos they have up of a guy clearly in need of some serious Jonathan Van Ness intervention, a company called Vindor has a intriguing, reasonably priced wind controller that is actually shipping. I believe they had a version 1 of this but I never heard of it.

Anyhow, it features:

  1. Louder integrated speaker with clearer sound*.
  2. Use MIDI, built-in oscillators, internal physical model or sample player (using SD card).
  3. Pitch bending and effects through gestures.
  4. USB-C connector*.
  5. MIDI through USB or DIN via inexpensive external adapter*.
  6. Works with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.
  7. Playback through USB (Vindor ES becomes headphones and microphone).
  8. 4 hours of untethered play time if using headphones.
  9. 1/4″ jack for connecting with amplifiers and effects pedals.
  10. OLED screen for interactive configuration.
  11. HiRes MIDI support provides 14-bit resolution (16000 steps vs 127) for synths that support it.
