The VL70-m Virtual Acoustic Tone Generator is a compact, low-cost addition to Yamaha's expanding line of Virtual Acoustic Synthesis instruments, which gives electronic musicians the flexibility and range for greater personal musical expression. The most musical tone generation system ever created, VA Synthesis is as versatile and easy to use from a keyboard as from a Wind MIDI Controller or a Guitar MIDI Converter. * VL70-m is not available in some countries.
Unique to Yamaha, computer-based "physical modeling" technology which accurately simulates the complex vibrations, resonances, reflections and other acoustic phenomena that occur in real wind or string instruments-to produce high quality monophonic voice...

Built-in Effects Section
With independent Reverb, Chorus, Variation and Distortion effects
Flexible Voice Editing Options
Although many parameters can be edited via the panel controls, peripheral voice editing software is available to give much more voicing flexibility. These can be obtained by downloading them from Yamaha XG-MIDI home page at: http//www.yamaha.co.jp.english/xg/html/libhm.html via Macintosh® systems
An application with a graphical interface which allows you to make selections using easy-to-understand palettes and clickable buttons. (A Windows® version of the Visual Editor is also available.)
An application with graphical interface which allows you to make selections using familiar analog-style knobs and switches.
Provides full access to the complete range of physical modeling parameters, ideal for creating entirely new voices.
Designed for compatibility with various types of external devices. A WX In jack lets you connect a Yamaha WX-series Wind MIDI controller. The "VL Extension for XG" feature significantly enhances and expands the musical capabilities of the XG format. A TO HOST connector lets you connect a personal computer for editing, sequencing and other musical applications without a separate MIDI interface.
Use from a keyboard, a Wind MIDI controller or a Guitar MIDI converter

Comments about Yamaha vl70-m:
No other tone generator is as capable of emulating the acoustical instruments as is the Yamaha VL70-m. Physical modeling is the key; and I just don't understand why Yamaha hasn't done more to promote and continue to support and enhance this product.
