Akai Professional EWI4000S Electronic Wind Controller
The Akai EWI 4000S wind instrument is a big step forward in the development of MIDI controllers and synthesizer instruments. It offers customizable sax-style fingering with advanced controls and functions for expressive performance and makes a number of higher-end synth features available. For more information on fingering options, download the PDF Manual on this page that contains fingering charts.

Most significant on the MIDI wind controller is an onboard sound module so you no longer have to play tethered. By using MIDI and an optional wireless transceiver, you can move freely onstage and switch between stored programs from the instrument. Its internal sounds are based on a virtual analog synth sound module and are very responsive to nuances of your playing. Breath, vibrato, glide time, and bend width are easily adjusted to suit your musical style, and you can send multiple MIDI messages via breath for expression and aftertouch changes.

The Akai EW14000S MIDI wind controller is also an octave key and mode that automatically doubles below the note you play, a Hold Mode which sustains a note while you play around it. It has 2 oscillators with separate volume controls, and a voltage controlled filter that can go from 2 to 4 pole filters. The EWI4000S improves breath noise emulation and also has sostenuto.

The EWI 4000S also has a sweep function that is more effective than typical envelope generators. By changing the force of your playing you can alter the sweep parameter to give dynamic shape to your sound.

To keep controls to a minimum, the Akai EWI 4000S comes with a MAC/PC editor program on which to customize your sounds. You can store edited programs and recall settings instantly during performance.

"AMAZING!!!"

I pulled this instrument out of the box with some speculations to say the least. However after about 30 mins of getting adjusted to the sensitivity and adjusting it to my preferences, I was amazed with how fluid my ideas where coming out. The fingering pattern is basically that of a saxophone with some slight variations, but with some practice you will be flying through 7 octaves. I am still experimenting with sounds, amps and effects. However the sounds that come with the unit are very nice and you can use the headphone jack to practice. I am still learning all of the possibilities that this instrument can do and am amazed with it everyday.

"Don't Expect Service"

The Akai 4000S is a great instrument. I absolutely love it! One caveat is that service from Akai is non-existent, and service from WWBW extends only through the period that returns are accepted. Mine stopped working after 9 months. I attempted to contact Akai service via e-mail as directed on their website, but no one ever contacted me back. I tried to call, but got only an answering machine. No one ever returned my call. Fortunately after about a month mine started working again as mysteriously as it had stopped. I repeat that it's a fantastic instrument, but if it breaks it's a doorstop. I would probably buy another in spite of my bad service experience. Patchman can probably repair them. BTW, don't expect to be happy with on-board patches.

"so much potential"

I bought the EWI back in February and I was so excited to get it. (There is) just a lot of equipment to get for it. You either have to get an amp (pocket or real size) adapter if you don?t use batteries, if you don?t like the preset 80 sounds, a controller. It is great to give as different voice in most settings, great practice for sax players. To go an easier route you can buy a midi cord and patch thru most keyboards to use the keyboards sounds that are on there. Good purchase but you have to go into it as an investment.

I bought my ewi4000s about 8 months ago and have trouble putting it down. The possibilities blow my mind. You could take it into a pit and play through a reed book as long as you have a decent sound module. The range is just awesome. It has brought me into the world of electronic music and my wallet is seeing the effects. To perform with it, you need an amp or a pa. It is also nice to have some external sound modules and synths so you can do some layering. If you aren't wanting to dive into performance with it, you can use it to practice and simply plug in headphones and make no noise doing it. I chose the EWI over Yamahas controller because I didn't want something that felt like a sax. With no moving keywork, you are not going to break anything. The mouthpiece is also different between the two. For me the EWI was the way to go. Thinking of the possibilities, the price is nothing.

AKAI got it right! I have earlier EWIs and this new EWI has features many wind-synth players have wanted and waited years for. Read the specs for yourself. Understand that the sounds on this thing are great. Hear samples on http://www.ewi-evi.com/4000s-samples.htm. Also download the manual so you can see what it is capable of doing http://www.ewi-evi.com/manuals/EWI4000s-manual.pdf. The one minor bug they're fixing. However, all upgrades and newer features can be downloaded . It plays great with an excellent feel and EWI players no longer have to lug around a separate sound module. I can't say enough about it. Listen to the samples and try one then decide for yourself. I know you'll like it.
