It is also equipped with a removable and washable spout, specially designed to offer an excellent feeling whatever the emulated instrument.
Full compatibility and immediate.
Fully compatible with all computer platforms, Windows or Mac OS X, the EWI connects with a simple USB cable, which also provides its power supply, for even more free mobility. Its plug & play mode also allows it to avoid the tedious installation of dedicated drivers: just plug in the controller to be immediately recognized, and ready to work!
A simple software setting for all fingerings.
So that every musician can find his way easily whatever his original instrument, the EWI is delivered with a software of parameterization which makes it possible to operate the essential settings in a few clicks. There are thus several types of fingerings (sax, flute, EWI, oboe ...) as well as various game controls, such as sensitivity to pressure or pinching.
