Hello, I possde EWI since May.
I must say I'm really happy, better than j'esprais level expressiveness!
The factory sounds are not all gniaux, but there's way with the editor to make other.
Site (srieux and pro) is specially in the design and sale of sound banks and specifically developed to the ewi yamaha wx, with synths and diff with lots of DEMOS.
Here is the link of a bank's concocted with the internal sound gnrateur ewi (this will give an ide of how it sounds):

In terms of expressiveness is great! We must experiment with diff. techniques because the mouth is ewi trs sensitive to the level of the attack and can sound flat and trs synth if you dig a little.

Otherwise, you must know that his fingers are close to those of sax and flute beak, but do not try to reproduce the same thing forcment ... It is an instrument in itself and its own personality possde and there are plenty of tricks to find a technical point of view to make it out of good juice!

- How long have you use it?
I ewi4000s for 2 months.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
This instrument offers many possibilities. The expressiveness when you start mastering all possible parameters controllable in real time is huge.
Sounds internal dcevront some because they are on a bass synthse analog. Also, the goal is not to imitate / mulate real acoustic instrument. Against by the sounds that can come out can be really gniaux. An editor PC / Mac comes to permetre to program other. This process is facilitated by the function to blend two sounds if you select your existing dj gnres 100 new sounds that sounds custom settings mlangent previous ones....…

This process is facilitated by the function to blend two sounds if you select your existing dj gnres 100 new sounds that sounds custom settings mlangent previous ones. There is more that the costs to see if there is one that looks like what you are looking ...

Also the only least in my opinion the lack of sound "acoustic" but clearly it's advertised trs. If you want the sound amule must either buy a keyboard or sound module (like the Yamaha IDAL vl70m trs but expensive) or else play the VSTi (or other samplers) via MIDI by logging on PC.

- Report qualitprix trs is good even if it is not given. The bte inspires confidence, the audio section is nickel (not a breath). Akai offers currently rgulirement of updating the firmware (it TRANSFR via midi) that adds new functions (accumulation of finger trumpets, assignment of the mouth or glides a control CCmidi choice ...).

There is a yahoo group or AkaiEWI guys at akai much are proposals to add functions ....

I would do without this choice hsiter seen the quality of bte but we must be honest, the sax passage of this new instrument is not automatic. Fingers is not a pb but it is a long work for any mastery ....
