AMS is stunning, you can either use the tutorial (and other) examples to learn modular synthesis the easy way - play with the huge range of instruments and demos, or go hardcore and roll your own. If you have a wind controller this is the answer to a prayer, since so many other soft synths are less than co-operative or seriously over-priced. And this is not only excellent, but free! All praise to the devs.... The way to get your wind-controller going so that the dynamics work is to unhook the VCA control line from its envelope generator and attach it to the Aftertouch output on the MIDI to CV block. If your Midi to CV does not have an Aftertouch output, right-click on the worktop, select the Advanced Midi to CV block. This has what you need. Transfer the existing lines from the old Midi to CV to the new one, then delete the old one. You can then go on to link other controllers to filter frequency/resonance etc. Customisation! If you don't have a wind controller - then whatever you have then AMS can probably be configured to fit like a glove - it is modular, after all. And it runs well on a 2008 laptop. A remarkable piece of work. Highly recommended.
