This book is for the amateur musicians who are interested in electronic wind instruments in general and the Akai EWI5000 in particular. It explains the functions of the EWIas various sensors, synthesiser components, audio effects, and external connections. It gives a visual map of the EWIas maze-like menus, and shows how to configure the hardware parameters. And it describes the similarities and the differences between the EWI and the traditional wind instruments. But this book is not meant to replace the official Akai publications. It is also not a tips-and-tricks book that teaches you how to make fancy balloon animals out of the EWI, and it is not an instruction book that teaches you music theory fundamentals. It is focused on the technical information about the EWI, the sort of information not found in the official manuals, the sort of information you can use to decide whether the EWI is right for you if you have not already purchased one, the sort of information you can use to explore the numerous musical possibilities if you did purchase one. 2015-10-16: Am Fix error about conical and cylindrical bores 2015-05-26: Am Distinguish perceptual terms from physical terms Am Add to care and maintenance section a tip on fashioning a cheap, lightweight carrying case 2015-04-24: Am Add explanation for room simulation reverb effect Am Add description of DAC to audio connections section Am Elaborate explanation of transposing instruments Am Fix typographical and other minor errors Am Fix ePub formatting error for Google Play Am Update resources section 2015-04-16: Am Reformat table of contents for better navigation Am Add author contact information 2015-01-10: Am Change fingering charts colour from black-on to blue-on for better visibility 2014-12-31: Am Initial publicationThis usera#39;s guide is not included in the package, but you can download the PDF from Akai.
