    Akai EWIUSB USB Wind Controller Product Description

    EWIUSB is an electronic wind instrument for musicians looking for an easy-to-play, easy-to-use controller. Akai Professional's decades of experience in wind and electronic music instruments are rolled into their most user friendly - and most affordable - EWI ever.

    Features

    - Electronic wind instrument controller
    - Easy to play, easy to use, and easy to own
    - Powerful, flexible, and reliable
    - Plug-and-play USB connection to Mac or PC
    - Custom Garritan Aria Player software, contains wind instrument sounds
    - Multiple fingering modes: sax, traditional EWI, flute, oboe, and EVI brass
    - Expandable sound palette
    - Removable, dishwasher-safe mouthpiece

    Premium Pedigree

    Akai Professional is the first name in electronic wind instruments. For over 20 years, Akai Professional has studied the art of playing saxophone, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, and other traditional winds, and developed electronic wind instruments that enable wind players to enjoy the same expressive control as in an acoustic instrument. They designed EWIUSB to give wind players the expressive musical capabilities previously found only in much more expensive instruments.

    Professional Performance

    EWIs are the only choice for serious wind players looking to make music electronically. While EWIUSB is easy and fun to use, it's also powerful, flexible, and most importantly reliable enough for use on stage and in the studio by professional musicians.

    Computer Control

    EWIUSB is the most flexible EWI because it harnesses your computer to generate its sounds. Its USB interface means that all you need is nearly any Mac or PC and the included EWIUSB software, and you're ready to practice, perform, create, and record with a full collection of wind instrument sounds. Aria Player software was produced specifically for use with EWIUSB, providing wind players with an unprecedented level of expressive control.

    Large Sound Palette

    You get over 75 different orchestral, concert band, jazz band, and synthesizer sound sets expertly recorded and programmed by Garritan, renowned for its ultra-realistic instrument sound libraries.

    Multi-Mode

    EWIUSB offers multiple fingering modes including sax, traditional EWI, flute, oboe, and EVI (brass), so whether you're just starting out as a woodwind student or an old pro wind player, you'll find EWIUSB easy to play. EWIUSB is designed for you to spend your time playing music; not learning technology.

    Surprising Affordability

    Historically, electronic wind instruments have fallen into two different categories: high-end, professional instruments and toys. EWIUSB breaks the price barrier, bringing professional quality, expressive control, and a studio-ready sound library to a price the professional-wind-instrument world has never seen.

    Discover the world of expression that only wind instruments can offer with EWIUSB.
