EWI5000, the latest addition to the EWI series, combines innovative instrument design, wireless
connectivity, and a sound library by SONiVOX to create the most expressive and versatile wind instrument
available to today's musicians. Building upon the legacy of the original Electronic Wind Instrument,
Akai Professional created EWI5000 with the same objective in mind—deliver unprecedented musical
expression to wind players everywhere. Experience the next generation in wind-performance technology
with an instrument that’s built for the contemporary player.
With 2.4GHz low-latency wireless connectivity, EWI5000 empowers you to perform freely with a dynamic
performance instrument in hand. It supports stereo wireless audio and includes a receiver for instant
mobility on the stage or in the studio. EWI5000 also supports wired audio and MIDI connections for
integrating with additional external performance and production hardware. Plus, its powered by a
rechargeable lithium-ion battery, so you can take EWI5000 with you and play it anywhere.
For precisely controlling volume and pitch dynamics, EWI5000 features an ultra-responsive mouth piece
with an air-pressure level sensor and bite sensor. In addition, eight dedicated precision dials allow
you to adjust instrument or effect parameters on the fly; tweak Filter, Reverb, Chorus, LFO, Breath
Amount, Bite Amount, Semitone Tuning, and Fine Tuning for a sound that’s as expressive as your playing.
Multiple Finger Modes
EWI5000 is a powerful instrument that expands the performance capabilities of woodwind and brass
musicians alike. With support for multiple playing styles, its interface can be switched to flute, oboe,
and saxophone fingering modes. An EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) Mode is also included for brass
players. Whether you're a classically trained flutist looking for a modern instrument, or a seasoned EWI
player looking for finger-position flexibility, EWI5000 has you covered.
Hook It Up
USB-MIDI connectivity and a 5-pin MIDI output enable you to expand your sonic palette by controlling
software synths, virtual samplers, or traditional MIDI modules. EWI5000 comes with a built-in 1/4-inch
output for connecting it directly to PA systems and a 1/8-inch headphone output for practicing
privately. A USB cable and wall adapter are included to recharge battery power via USB or wall power.
Any Sound For Any Performance
EWI5000 comes loaded with more than 3GB of built-in high-quality sounds designed by SONiVOX, a leading
creator of premium virtual instruments and software synthesis technologies. These instruments span
across just about every music genre and put traditional orchestral sounds (e.g. horn, brass, and
woodwind) and non-traditional sounds (e.g. progressive synths, basses, and leads) at your fingertips.
EWI5000 Sound Editor
Expand your creative capabilities with the EWI5000 Sound Editor software. This custom software editor is
a powerful platform for manipulating EWI5000's sound library on your Mac or PC. Connect EWI5000 to your
computer via USB; call up any instrument from the library; and use the filter, two LFOs, pan knob, tune
control, and multiple envelopes to tweak it into something entirely new. Then, store your edits directly
on your EWI5000 for a customized instrument library that's ready to perform whenever you are.
