New Akai Professional EWI Solo instrument
This new wind controller from Akai has a price of $ 499 which makes it more affordable than the 5000 or the older 4000s, and therefore for SampleModeling fans it sounds like a great instrument.
It has far superior LCD display than any prior models which shows actual words rather than cryptic abbreviations, as well as a rechargeable lithium battery, USB connection, and a built in speaker. Of course the speaker is of not much use unless you want to listen to the built in sounds which are not nearly as good as those of the Roland Aerophone AE-10.
Here is a link for a pretty useful review which compares this new instrument to the EWI-4000s.
Unlike those of us on this forum, Carlos, is not interested in sounds that emulate those of acoustic intruments, but nevertheless he does a good job of introducing the Akai Pro EWI Solo.
