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!
