EWI USB is an electronic wind instrument for musicians looking for an easy-to-play, easy-to-use
controller. Akai Professional’s decades of experience in wind and electronic music instruments are
rolled into our most user friendly — and most affordable — EWI ever.
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 EWI USB to give wind players the expressive musical capabilities
previously found only in much more expensive instruments.
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.
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.
Large Sound Palette
You get over 75 different orchestral, concert band, jazz band, and synthesizer sound sets expertly
recorded and programmed by Garritan, renowned for its ultra-realistic instrument sound libraries.
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.
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.
