Akai EWI3020M Analog Synth Sound Module
A classic analogue synthesizer optimized for the expressive control capabilities of the EWI.
Akai has been pioneering wind synthesis since 1987 with the introduction of the EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) and the EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument). In the years that have followed, the EWI has been refined to offer probably the most expressive electronic musical instrument in the world. If you have not seen an EWI in use, you have it's almost certainly heard it as it is used by leading session players the world over and has been featured on numerous film and TV soundtracks. What makes the EWI unique in these digital days where everything is quantised into discrete steps is that the EWI uses good old fashioned control voltages.
What this means in practice is that as you blow harder to open up the filter, increase amplitude or whatever, the control is completely smooth and not 'zippered' with quantized control level steps as on competing wind controllers.
What this means in performance is that every nuance of your expressiveness is captured with exceptional subtlety.
The fingering of the EWI will immediately be familiar to sax players but even if you've never played a woodwind instrument before, you'll enjoy Akai EWI wind synthesizers. The EWI3020 is a wind controller that lets you play naturally and with feeling. The EWI3020m is an analogue synthesizer module featuring a warm and expressive sound. The EWI3030m is a digital synthesizer module providing high-quality, realistic sound from PCM samples. No keyboard instrument can match the flexibility and sheer expressiveness of these unique instruments.

Our Happy Customers
"Hi, I just wanted to say thank you to Bob in sales. He was very helpful in terms of explaining whether I'd need a punch in/out pedal or not for my Roland 61 Fantom G. If you hear of any training available on the web or reps visiting Austin to explain all the bells on this new board, I might be interested in attending or watching a demo online. Thus far, you guys have been great to work with customer service wise. I can't wait to get my keyboard on May 5th (or something). I'll be sure to recommend you guys to get you some more business.
