Question about Akai Ewi4000s Electronic Wind Instrument

1 Answer

EWI won't respond to comands

I have a Akai EWI 4000s.

Last week, when i turned it on, all the leds in the monitor came up (as they usually do when one turns it on), but it stayed that way.

No matter what buttons I push, it doesn't make any difference. It stays mute, can't change the program or activate any of the effects. It is pretty much... dead. Only, with a monitor on

It's not the batteries, I've just bought a fresh supply

I've got the solution.
Turn the EWI off.
Press the LEVEL, FX, SETUP and TRANS buttons all together.
Turn on the EWI.
This is a Reset to Factory Preset.
Greetings Fred Roubos.

Akai ewi 4000s neck strap mount


1 Un screw all the screw on black panel, but must remember where each on goes, but Be careful not the two screws in side mouth pice which holding the pitch bend unit. 2. open the battery cover remove all the battery 3. Remove the 1/4 earphone nut, and all screws on the silver metal case. (Under the black plastic ), you don't need to remove any screws from the "key" side 4. Use something to pull the battery Cartridge sideway out from Main attachments, but not all the way out from the ewi case, because you can't, the plastic case structure will be in the way, 5. Use some flat pice metal like dinning knife insert in to between black and sliver metal to separate the two parts, start from the mouth pice end, once you open wide enough the battery cartridge can be remove from the case out. Now you can open the Ewi 4000s and see the two HX nuts that holds the strap mount, put some Nail polish on it before you tie them up.....Warning.. You must pull the battery cartage sideway out from its electric plugging mount before you are trying to separate the plastic and silver housing otherwise you will damage the circuit board. That was What I did to mine. Good luck and may God provide you wisdom for this.

Program change on the akai 4000s


Please try to wet your fingers a little bit.
When your fingers are dry the ewi would not react properly.

Detuning of Akai EWI 4000s


Are you shure that you aren't touching the bend up plate with your right thumb? This isn't easy detected by sax players which are used to have a thumb rest at exactly the same spot where the bend up plate is. You might switch it off (see manual). With the bend up plate on you should aways use a tight strap which helps a bit to not touch the bend up plate accidentally. I'm still struggling with this occasionally.
