In the years that have followed, the EWI has been refined to offer probably the most expressive electronic musical instrument in the world.
You may not have seen an EWI in use but it’s almost certain you have heard them as they are used by leading session players the world over and have been featured on numerous film and TV soundtracks.
What makes the EWI unique in these digital days where everything is quantised into discrete steps is that the EWI uses good old fashioned control voltages.
What this means in practice is that as you blow harder to open up the filter, increase amplitude or whatever, the control is completely smooth and not ‘zippered’ with quantised control level steps as on competing wind controllers.
What this means in performance is that every nuance of your expressiveness is captured with exceptional subtlety.
