The X-Fade function is supported when using Aerophone Pro AE-30 System Program ver. 2 and later. You can use the X-Fade function to switch between two different sounds according to how hard you blow and the way the instrument is facing.
This function is used on some preset scenes along with the motion sensor function.
Use the free “Aerophone Pro Editor” app to configure the various parameters for the desired scene, while referring to the settings in “01:Synth Hard Lead” to “36 Syn Lead M/S 3”. For “01:Synth Hard Lead” to “36 Syn Lead M/S 3”, you can add two pitches to the sound (a fifth and also an octave above) for a festive tone when you raise the bell of the instrument. Tilt the instrument to the side to lower the pitch (a pitch-bend effect).
