« Controller Midi Music »Publié le 03/11/11 à 06:43
I discovered shortly after birth computer music MIDI on the Atari 1024ste. I then followed with amazement the revolution of the digital instrument is happening today with a maturity of virtual instruments extremely efficient, responsive, creative, musical. All these instruments are only commands to midi, midi controller is the part needed to properly exploit these Vsti.
The EWI is a wind midi controller very easily accessible. Amateur musician, I've never played other wind instruments as the flute in 6th. Yet, few lines are enough to be functional and play some simple melodies with the instrument.
Connected via USB to the computer, it emulates a MIDI in / out available then any other software causing at noon (DAW, virtual instrument standalone etc. ...).
The banks provided the EWI are not terrible. However banks are exceptional Sample Modeling of realism and reveals the full potential of the controller. More experimental, Arturia Brass is also an excellent program for EWI. Of course, with some settings noon, Ewi little control any synth with this superiority when compared to the keyboard to control the modulation and the attack of notes.
EWI has done its job, namely to transform a melody played on the mechanical keyboard as a true musical phrase sung.
Simple to pick up (it's not harder than blowing into a recorder), EWI can finally time to master simply and naturally attacking a note, its maintenance and the transition Next, something difficult to achieve at the keyboard, even with aftertouch sensitive and knobs pitchbend or modulation.
The tool is well built, sturdy yet lightweight, pleasant to touch.
The driver, however, is sloppy, the sound bank is not at the height of the object and does not really exploit this unique controller. It should therefore provide an additional budget to invest in additional virtual instruments also excellent and a small investment on the understanding of the standard noon.
Very good value for money especially given the unique experience and feel that this instrument offers. An excellent controller to give life to your virtual instruments.
