questions about Aerophones was created by Phil999
Some questions about the Roland Aerophone line as pure MIDI controllers. The internal sounds are not relevant, the questions are only about the MIDI controller aspect.

- how many MIDI CC's (contiuous controller values, like CC1 = modulation wheel) can be sent through USB MIDI and Bluetooth? One, two, or more?
- related to the above question: are the Aerophones models different in sensor data and MIDI CC's? For example, does the GO model also have a motion sensor?
- they can be powered over USB C. Is that correct?

There may arise more questions, but these are the most important ones.

Sorry, I don't have an answer to your first question.
Second question-second part.  As far as I know, the Aerophone GO (AE-05) has no motion sensor.  It was launched a lot earlier than the Aerophone Pro (AE-30).
If you want a motion sensor then the Aodyo Sylphyo might be an option?
Third question.  Which Aerophones can be powered via USB?  The Aerophone GO (AE-05) and the Aerophone Mini (AE-01).
The original model Aerophone (AE-10) needs more than the 5 volts that USB puts out.  That one runs on 6 AA rechargeable batteries or a DC power supply.
The Aerophone Pro (AE-30) has similar power arrangements as the Aerophone (AE-10).

thank you. The video made it clear that the AE-30 can send two motion CC's over MIDI. This is good.
What for me remains to know how the Aerophones handle octave shifting. Is it possible to change two or three octaves in one go, or does one have to push a button two or three times for this to happen?
Edit: I just found the answer in the AE-30 manual. One can assign the octave buttons to ±2 or ±3 octaves, but it appears this is a choice one has to make beforehand. Akai definitely chose a better option with its octave wheels. Maybe patented, so no other company has this perfect option.
