Next-gen music technology provides authentic wind-instrument performance.
EWI5000 White, the latest addition to the EWI series, combines innovative instrument design, wireless connectivity and a sound library by SONiVOX to create the most expressive and versatile electronic wind instrument available today - all in a sleek, striking, all-new white finish. Building upon the legacy of the original Electronic Wind Instrument, Akai Professional created EWI5000 White with the same objective in mind—deliver unprecedented musical expression to wind players everywhere. Experience the next generation in wind-performance technology with an instrument that’s built for the contemporary player.
With 2.4GHz low-latency wireless connectivity, EWI5000 White empowers you to perform freely with a dynamic performance instrument in hand. It supports stereo wireless audio and includes a receiver for instant mobility on the stage or in the studio. EWI5000 White also supports wired audio and MIDI connections for integrating with additional external performance and production hardware. Plus, it’s powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, so you can take EWI5000 White with you and play it anywhere.
For precisely controlling volume and pitch dynamics, EWI5000 White features an ultra-responsive mouthpiece with an air-pressure level sensor and bite sensor. In addition, eight dedicated precision dials allow you to adjust instrument or effect parameters on the fly: tweak Filter, Reverb, Chorus, LFO, Breath Amount, Bite Amount, Semitone Tuning, and Fine Tuning for a sound that’s as expressive as your playing.
Multiple Finger Modes
EWI5000 is a powerful instrument that expands the performance capabilities of woodwind and brass musicians alike. With support for multiple playing styles, its interface can be switched to flute, oboe and saxophone fingering modes. An EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) Mode is also included for brass players. Whether you’re a classically trained flutist looking for a modern instrument, or a seasoned EWI player looking for finger-position flexibility, EWI5000 White has you covered.
Hook It Up
USB-MIDI connectivity and a 5-pin MIDI output enable you to expand your sonic palette by controlling software synths, virtual samplers, or traditional MIDI modules. EWI5000 White comes with a built-in 1/4" output for connecting it directly to PA systems and a 1/8-inch headphone output for practicing privately. A USB cable and wall adapter are included to recharge battery power via USB or wall power.
Any Sound for Any Performance
EWI5000 White comes loaded with more than 3GB of built-in high-quality sounds designed by SONiVOX, a leading creator of premium virtual instruments and software synthesis technologies. These instruments span just about every music genre and put both traditional orchestral sounds (e.g. horn, brass, and woodwind) and non-traditional sounds (e.g. progressive synths, basses, and leads) at your fingertips.
EWI5000 Sound Editor
Expand your creative capabilities with the EWI5000 White Sound Editor software. This custom software editor is a powerful platform for manipulating EWI5000’s sound library on your Mac or PC. Connect EWI5000 White to your computer via USB; call up any instrument from the library; and use the filter, two LFOs, pan knob, tune control and multiple envelopes to tweak it into something entirely new. Then, store your edits directly on your EWI5000 White for a customized instrument library that’s ready to perform whenever you are.
