sounds for my Akai EWI

Jon9115, 24.09.2015
I play an Akai EWI4000 as part of my one man band show and I read that the Rack XS allowed more expressive sounds. The price is high (for me), but there are few options. So I ordered it along with the Patchman programmed patches for the EWI.

The instrument sounds are great. I use mostly trumpet with mutes, sax, flute, clarinet, trombone with mutes and rarely other sounds. I have not dug into the other capabilities of this box, maybe this winter.

The front panel controls make it easy to make changes to the voice such as reverb or tone. Saving and accessing the hundreds of voices is very easy with the catagory search. I have the 12 or so voices that I use frequently in the user3 bank.

I highly recommend this sound module for playing realistic wind instrument sounds on an Akai Ewi.

Real tool

Ster, 02.10.2011
The Motif Expander is a true all-rounder. In both classical and other genres, realistic sounds and above all, playable. It starts with the grand piano and ends with the richness of synth sounds. However, choruses come too short.
The four audio outputs help with configuration. For me a drawback, that the switching on the volume Poti takes place.
Sampeln one can not synonymous, which me on this device not particularly interferes because I use it mainly as a sample player.
USB port available, Firewire 400 optional on plug-in card, so the device can be integrated into any environment. Well thought and well done.

Supplement 07.10.2011
In the PC environment, USB is problem-free, but not in the Mac environment. Since you should access the optional Firewire card. Then everything works perfectly. The (expensive) plug is by the way easy to install.
