Product Description

The Next-Generation Wind Instrument
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.

Akai EWI5000 Wireless Electronic Wind Instrument Features:

  • Authentic wind-instrument performance and response with next-generation music technology
  • Wireless stereo audio for onstage freedom (receiver included)
  • 3GB of onboard, world-class acoustic and synth sounds created by SONiVOX
  • Up to 6 hours of play time using the rechargeable lithium-ion battery (charging adapter included)
  • 8 precision dials for quickly tweaking instrument and effect parameters
  • USB port for USB-MIDI connection and battery recharging
  • 1/4" audio output and 1/8" headphone output
Performance Freedom
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, it's powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, so you can take EWI5000 with you and play it anywhere.

Unparalleled Expression
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, 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.

I play alto tenor and soprano sax. I had the Yamaha WX5, but this is light years better!! Very intuitive and expressive.... The wireless feature is a must have!! So many ideas to use this Akai on! I’m excited about the possibilities!!!!

Misleading product.

Product Review

The product itself functions really well, but how it is marketed is extremely misleading. I can't speak for all of the instruments it claims it can mirror fingering for, but I can speak for the flute. The fingering is vastly different. There are a couple of similar notes as far as finger placement go, but no where near enough for me to say it draws a parallel. In addition to that I strongly dislike needing to change what octave I'm playing in with my thumbs, and was disappointed that this couldn't be done with breath controls, even though it can read the strength of your blows. Perhaps my biggest disappointment was not being given finger charts and needing to google. At the end of the day it's skill a cool instrument that I hope to learn but what was marketed as an easy pick up and play instrument is going to be another several years of serious practice because of how vastly different it really is from the flute (and I'd assume other instruments it makes similar claims about)

Excellent purchase

Product Review

Not sure why I waited so long to purchase. This EWI has allowed me to perform with more groups due to the versatility of the instrument.i can know cover horns and other creative parts within the body of a song. More opportunities have come my way since the purchase.

The Case???

Product Review

I love the instrument but I'm catching hell trying to find a case for it. I would give it five stars if it came with a hard shell case.

What an incredible instrument!

Product Review

I'm a sax player who was looking for an effective practice tool, nothing more - nothing less. What I got was so much more! Yes it certainly fits the bill as a practical alternative instrument for practicing scales and phrasing. I am now exploring recording and performance possibilities that were never even considered. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is considering a wind controller and even more so to any sax player who would like to broaden their horizons musically!!

Jazzy Awesome Play with the Akai EWI 5000

Product Review

From the moment I took it out the box.I set it up with an ease,downloaded the necessary essentials,connect it to my pc,set it and started jazz'n with it snd started to play.It's a good product overall,certain things you have to deep search it on line to get the juice of it BUT it is awesome product in session,in the studio and LIVE....The ONLY downfall it is sometimes the battery that it somehow discharge itself.The sounds are magnificent,real life sounds.....Don't forget to get a premium travel case for protection.
