Its happened at last..... ... host.shtml

coupled with

I bought these a couple of days ago....My EwiUSB into Kenton Box then direct to my XV5080/VL70m...brilliant

and for the analog audio side

TenorSax/BariSax/TenorHorn/BassClar into Shure SM58 - Sonuus I2M - KentonMidi box - Synth rack, this works well, follows pitch bends well(obviously depends on patch) Nuances not as good as the EWI... but hey...your holding a real instrument 'n' that funk horn section patch sounds great....

The I2M comes with an editor that lets you tailor and save your personal preferences. Importantly it gives you a velocity breath curve.

I'm not a MIDI geek so slowly finding my way around but it works and anything that eliminates fragile laptops with their associated flimsy connectors has got to be good

NB. the kenton box is brilliant, the board inside is well made....but the appearance is dreadfill...first job for me is to recase in a decent die cast box.
