Akai EWI USB Wind Instrument

The Akai EWI USB brings you an electronic wind instrument for anyone looking for an easy-to-play and easy-to-use controller. After decades of experience with wind and electronic music, the EWI USB is the most user-friendly and affordable EWI yet.

When you think of electronic wind instruments, you think of Akai. They’ve studied the art of playing saxophone, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, and other traditional winds. Developing electronic wind instruments that enable wind players to enjoy the same expressive control as you’d find in an acoustic instrument. As a result, the EWI USB gives you expressive musical capabilities that you’d only otherwise find in much more expensive instruments.

Professional Performance

Offering a professional performance, the EWI USB is the only choice for serious players looking to make music electronically. Not only is the EWI USB easy and fun to use. But its also powerful, flexible, and most importantly, reliable enough to use both on stage and in the studio.

Computer Control

The most flexible EWI yet, the EWI USB also harnesses your computer to generate sounds. Boasting a USB interface, all you’ll need is a MAC or PC as well as the included software. Then you’re ready to practice, perform, create, and record with a full collection of wind instrument sounds. The included Aria Player software was produced specifically for use with the EWI USB. So you’ll have an unprecedented level of expressive control.

Large Sound Palette

With a massive sound palette, the EWI USB offers more than 75 different orchestral, concert band, jazz band, and synthesizer sounds expertly recorded and programmed by Garritanl renowned for its incredibly realistic libraries of sounds.

Multi Mode

With multiple fingering modes available, the EWI USB allows you to choose from sax, traditional EWI, flute, oboe, and EVI. So whether you’re just starting out or are a professional wind instrumentalist, the EWI USB is easier than ever to start playing.

Surprising Affordability

Finally, the EWI USB is incredibly affordable. Unlike many high-end and professional instruments that can quickly break the bank; the EWI USB breaks the price barrier bringing you professional quality and a studio-ready sound library like none else.
