Akai EWI 5000

Akai’s EWI5000 is the flagship of the acclaimed EWI series, which has provided wind instrument players expressive electronic performance tools for the last two decades. If you're a wind player looking to add a powerful controller to your setup, look no further.

The ultra-responsive mouthpiece includes an air pressure sensor as well as a bite level sensor, which offers you unprecedented levels of control while multiple fingering modes ensure comfort and ease of use, and eight dedicated dials control additional parameters such as filtering, reverb, chorus and breath amount. Rechargable batteries provide up to six hours of play time, and the wireless stereo audio receiver allows cordless freedom. The EWI5000 comes preloaded with over 3GB of high quality sounds designed by Sonivox that span a range of traditional orchestral instruments, and non-traditional sounds such as synthesizers and effects.
