Question about Akai Ewi4000s Electronic Wind Instrument

1 Answer

Internal and external sounds at the same time

If I connect my ewi to an external synthesizer it perfectly plays the sounds from it BUT its also plays it's own internal sound. How can I switch off the internal sound (I don't want 2 different sounds at the same time!)

Without reading the manual, the easiest solution that occurs to me is to not use a cable between the audio out on the Ewi and the amp or mixer you are using. You can also set the main volume to zero. That setting does not affect the program volume.

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.

Hello, My Pa800 is few years old now has always worked perfectly. I recently combined few sets of rhythms together and loaded it there seemed to be no problem, few days later i was getting glitches in all...


The splicing of rhythms to play seamlessly would be tricky. Also you need to consider if you might be exceeding the number of generators available. If you are splicing external samples, that take great care and a lot of editing. Part of the problem is syncronizing the clocks of individual samples. It is hard to avoid glitches and changing mode of clock and quantizing will expose these glitches.

Do you need a computer to use the Novation UltraNova 37-Key Analog-Modeling Synthesizer


The Keyboard comes with inbuilt sounds (Approx 300 Presets and 200 user patches), so you can play it Live without a computer by simply taking AUX outs and it has a wall power supply adapter. You can also connect it to your computer via USB for additional sounds through VST instruments and Plugins. The USB also powers up the Keyboard without the adapter. Hope this helps.

Here is a link to the best site in North America for wind synthesizers:http://www.patchmanmusic.com/WindControllerFAQ.html I am not a Mac user myself but it sounds like you might not have the threshold adjusted correctly on your Akai. It works differently when connected to external synths. Anyway I am sure you will find the answer on that site or in your manual. There is also a link on the site to download the latest updates.

HI there, I Have a casio cz1 synthesizer, great machine, but, after not having played it for over a decade, I have just brought it out of it's box with the hope of taking it up again. The problem is that...


Hi,
I had a similar thing happen.
Definitely change the internal battery and initialize back to factory settings. Just hold down the red initialize button (top right hand corner) while you turn it on. It will then ask on the LCD - hit "yes".
I also had to change the battery in my external cartridge (if you have one).
There are some great (free & pay for) sound patches on the web for the CZ1 (way better than the presets) you can load them in via midi sysex.

My akai ewi 4000s kind of froze


Please try to reset the ewi. You can do this like this: Shut down ewi. Press down the four little white buttons Level, FX, Setup and Trans. Keep them pressed while starting up the ewi.
This is a factory reset.

I hope this works for you.

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.
