Akai EWI4000S

EWI4000SThe EWI4000S wind controller delivers incredible versatility, ultimate mobility and remarkable creative expression that brings a musical revolution to your fingertips.

Akai understands that you want to concentrate on creating and performing music, not manipulating buttons, so they've made the breath, vibrato, glide time, and bend width controls easily accessible and totally adjustable. In addition, the included software lets both Windows and Mac users edit, customize, store and recall sounds with their computer.

Unlike the less expensive EWI USB, the EWI 4000S has built in sounds, so you can use it without your computer for live performance.  You can still connect to your computer for recording using a USB MIDI interface, but if you don't feel like fiddling with software synths, the EWI 4000S is the way to go.

Key Features
- Electronic Valve Instrument (EVI) fingering mode for brass players
- Touch sensitive keys and octave roller for quick and responsive playing
- Sensitive breath sensor for expressive dynamics
- Built-in analog modeling synth sound module
- Built-in MIDI output for use with sound modules
- PC and Mac Editor software for customizing, storing and instantly recalling internal sounds
- Lightweight and portable design with battery power
