Consider joining the forum here:http://www.patchmanmusic.com/WindControllerLinks.html It sounds like it is a velocity setting problem but the solution should be in your manual. It may also be a setting in the sound module you are using.

Latency during recording - makes playing in time impossible


I can totally relate, Tom. Good old multitrack recorders!
This may sound stupid, but you don't have like a slap back delay turned on by mistake, do you? Other than that, I'm afraid I'm not much help.

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.

I have an Omega/Lambda/Lexicon and the vocals seemed to be delayed with the timing established by the instruments. Any ideas of what to do?


Without the configuration you are using we have little to go on. How is the system wired? Are you saying when you run instruments AND mics into this then record they do not play back together? If the instruments are MIDI types and you play back along with the vocals I would expect the MIDI instruments to be delayed a little as it takes time to transmit the note info at 31.25Kb... It takes about 1/3000 second for EACH MIDI character and note messages take three of those for a total of about 1 ms. One millisecond IS noticeable by the ear... and if you have several instruments it may take several milliseconds to service all the instruments. If you are recording ANALOG instruments the delay should be imperceptible.

Hi, I have this problem with reason: When i record a track the sound comes as very short staccato ,so all notes are semiquavers.What is the reason for this? Many thanks David


check the instrument's "show programmer" tab at the bottom of every patch you plug in. if its on every single sound fx that you use, then it's something else, but for the most part, here is where your staccato comes in to play. tweak the OSC 1 2 etc, then the "portamento".

i hope this helps, i kno how ugly reason makes there products to not work for the user's advantage.

I can't seem to figure out how to record one track over another without a delay problem? I am using the behringer 1202 mixer into my computer. No problem recording but can't do multiple tracks. I'm new...


This is a common problem with digital recording. Simply put, it takes some time to convert analog (audio) to digital and then more time to convert it back. So, your playback track goes through conversion and introduces some delay. You don't hear this because you have no zero reference. Your recorded sound goes through the A/D converter and also incurs some delay. When you play them back together, you hear the difference in time from one track to another. Most pro recording programs have some method to minimize or cancel the delay like slipping the tracks so they all start together. Pro Tools just introduced a version that automatically does this. They have always had what it called "low latency" monitoring which attempts to keep the "shortest" digital/analog path so overdubs are close enough that we don't hear any issues. So, since you talk about the mixer but not the recording program, I can't tell you specifics but I'd look into the recording program for time alignment settings and options. If you have a manual for the recording program, try to look up latency.

Internal and external 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.

EWI4000s only plays one note


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.

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.
