Question about Akai Ewi4000s Electronic Wind Instrument

EWI4000s only plays one note

When I blow into the ewi no matter what keys i press it always plays the same note. The rollers do not change the octave either. I have tried resetting it and it makes no difference.

    Thanks for your suggested solution!

    I have tried resetting it and it makes no difference. I have further diagnosed the problem...it seems that this only happens when the line out is plugged into the EWI (that is, it still happens when the line out is plugged in but when im playing through the headphone line)!!!

Hello a_marechalro,

You can try to reset your instrument.
Turn off the EWI,
Press the LEVEL, FX, SETUP and TRANS buttons.
Then turn on the EWI.
This is a Factory reset.

I hope for You this is the solution.
Kind regards,
Fred Roubos.

My Ewi is playing most of the patches in Bb and some in others keys. How can I fix it? I 've reseted and nothing changes


You may need to do a factory reset. It sounds linke a transpose setting has been invoked. Read your manual under the word "transpose". A factory reset, if required, usually involves holding one or more buttons or keys down while turning on power and holding them until the reset is acknowledged.

Ewi4000s as a controller


Adjust the VB & BR knobs if theyare turned up too much, the instrument senses that as a continuous note on signal.

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.
