Fantastic instrument, absolutely a blast for the price.

  • Summary: This instrument is absolutely amazing! I am a percussionist with a small wind-playing background and I thought I'd pick the instrument up just to keep my woodwind fingerings in tact, and to help with recording some electronic music that I do. The EWI is amazing.

Outstanding instrument!

  • Summary: I couldn't be more pleased with the EWI USB!! It does exactly what it is supposed to do. I've seen some reviews that complained about the airflow through the instrument. I find it quite easy to blow. In fact, if it were not easy to blow, I wouldn't be able to play it.

Incredible wind controller!

  • Summary: I have used the Yamaha WX7, WX5, EWI-3020, EWI-4000s and this newest instrument, the EWI-USB. Not only is this instrument an incredible bargain at under $300 but it is much simpler to setup and use than all of the other wind controllers.

Fantastic Instrument

Vincent Cirelli "vcirelli", amazon.com
10 January 2010
  • Summary: I was apprehensive about buying a wind controller, as I've played good old fashioned woodwinds and brass all my life. However, I was shocked to find how expressive and emotive one could be using an electronic controller like this.

Another Opinion

D. Baker, amazon.com
30 November 2009
  • Summary: After seeing an extremely negative review on the Akai EWI USB I had to chime in. I've been composing for years with a Yamaha WX5 and have grown accustomed to scoring with wind controllers - there's nothing like the performance you can get from them.

It really works

Christopher Doyle, music123

  • Summary: Awesome. Beyond cool. If you want to have an instrument that makes all the sounds of every other instrument...with expression...get this. You won't be disappointed. I am not a woodwind player (other than recorder--which helps in learning this EWI) and I picked this up and started playing.
