Description

Akai EWI USB is an electronic wind instrument for musicians looking for an easy-to-play, easy-to-use controller. Over the last few years, the Akai EWI USB has proved to be hugely popular in the electronic instruments sector. Akai Professional's decades of experience in wind and electronic music instruments are rolled into our most user friendly - and most affordable - EWI ever.

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. We designed Akai EWI USB 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 EWI USB 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
EWI USB 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 EWI USB 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 EWI USB, providing wind players with an unprecedented level of expressive control.

MULTI MODE
EWI USB 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 EWI USB easy to play. EWI USB 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. EWI USB 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 EWI USB.
