Akai Professional’s decades of experience in wind and electronic music instruments are rolled into our most user-friendly—and most affordable—EWI ever.

While EWI USB is easy and fun to use, it’s also powerful, flexible, and most importantly reliable enough for use on stage and in the studio by professional musicians. Its USB interface means that all you need is any Mac or PC and the included custom EWI USB software, and you’re ready to practice, perform, create, and record with a full collection of wind instrument sounds.

EWI USB offers multiple fingering modes including sax, traditional EWI, recorder, and EVI, so whether you’re just starting out as a woodwind student or an old pro wind player, you’ll find EWI USB easy to play. EWI USB is designed for you to spend your time playing music; not learning technology.

Because EWI USB is a MIDI controller, it’s easy to expand your sound palette with the sound sets available for purchase from www.akaipro.com. And because EWI USB is a MIDI controller, synthesizer users, producers, and keyboard players will enjoy the expressiveness that it can add to their setups.

Discover the world of expression that only wind instruments can offer with EWI USB.

Excellent, ergonomic design, glitchy software


First off, pre-sales service was great! I spoke with a very knowledgeable agent (obviously a musician!) who helped me make a quick purchase decision. Shipping was also excellent, it arrived a day before it was scheduled to. As to the instrument itself, an excellent design that is only let down by software that does not quite work as expected (crashing on my Windows computer when I try and configure the instrument). Hence 4 stars instead of 5. There is another third-party software (free) by Cognitone that remedies this lapse, but c'mon Akai... This is my first wind instrument (other than harmonica) so I look forward to learning how to play it - and one of the great things is that there are several alternative fingerings for sax, flute, clarinet, oboe, etc. One day I may own all of those but by then I will have learnt their fingerings using this versatile instrument!
