Augmented YDS-150 Digital MIDI Soprano Saxophone

Updated: Apr 7

I finished modifying Yamaha YDS-150 into a digital midi soprano saxophone. I added a bite sensor, motion sensor and modified octave keys. I also used a real soprano saxophone mouthpiece with a curved neck. With customizable fingering and my midi programing to convert breath cc to velocity, it became a very powerful midi wind controller.
