Someone who played in our ceilidh band had a wind synth, which will do
what you want. Think of it as an electric clarinet, with thumb
switches to select octave, change key, and make individual notes sharp
or flat. The processor has switches that let you select flute,
clarinet, bassoon, highland pipes and a bunch of other stuff that
never went near arundo donax :-)

It should be no great deal to develop an NSP voice for this, but the
instrument's real strength lies in doing novel stuff - such as
accompanying a flautist first time through as a sax, the second time
through as an electric bassoon, and finishing off with a 5-octave
arpeggio.

(You listening, Santa? :-)
