Nyle Steiner's RAD MIDI EWI

Michael Brecker Playing EWI PatchmanWhile Nyle Steiner traveled to Japan and delivered a new EWI prototype to the Akai engineers for what was to become the amazing new Akai EWI4000s, he was also working on another version of his instrument- the new Side-by-Side "RAD" MIDI EWI! This page discusses this innovative new electronic wind instrument.

Check in often as it will continue to expand. Special thanks to Nyle Steiner and the late great Michael Brecker for providing many of the photos.

We hope you enjoy this page!
