The Akai Professional EWI Solo builds upon the legacy of Akai Professionalâ€™s original Electronic Wind Instrument to give todayâ€™s wind players the ultimate in musical freedom. The latest entry in Akai Professionalâ€™s EWI series of dynamic performance wind instruments, the EWI Solo ups the ante with a built-in speaker that lets you express yourself anywhere. Onboard is a meticulously curated library of 200 premium onboard sounds that ranges from sumptuous evolving synth pads to a stunningly lifelike jazz clarinet. The EWI Solo is a standalone instrument, but it also features USB-MIDI for controlling your favorite music software or MIDI hardware. Experience the next generation in wind performance technology with an instrument designed expressly for the modern player: the Akai Professional EWI Solo.
Electronic musicians at Sweetwater know that being tethered is no fun when youâ€™re performing. With the Akai Professional EWI Solo, youâ€™re liberated from cable bondage. If youâ€™ve got the stamina to play for 12+ hours, the EWI Soloâ€™s internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery and built-in speaker will track you note-for-note. The speaker is tuned for natural-sounding reproduction of the onboard sounds, and the EWI Solo is ready to rock, whenever and wherever inspiration strikes.
For precisely controlling volume and pitch dynamics, the EWI Solo features an ultra-responsive mouthpiece with an air pressure level and a bite sensor to control your volume and pitch dynamics for natural, expressive performances. Add professional polish to your signature sounds with studio-grade Reverb, Delay, and Chorus effects and fine-tune your performances with editing functions for Pitch, Tuning, and Dual LFOs.
The EWI Solo extends the performance potential of woodwind and brass players alike. With support for flute, oboe, and saxophone fingering modes, there is nothing new to learn. Especially for brass players, an EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) mode is also included. Whether youâ€™re a classically trained flutist desiring a modern instrument, or an experienced EWI player seeking the freedom of a self-contained instrument, the EWI Solo has you covered!
