Recently, a satisfied customer wrote: "I purchased my first WX5 and VL70-m from [major online dealer] and I ended up taking it back because I was frustrated with the results I was getting and couldn't get any 'real' help from them in that department. A year later I talked with Matt at Patchman and he guided me in the right direction, set me up with the right tools and I am a happy camper. Sometimes I sound like I am on commission as a salesman for him, but that sure isn't the case. I just feel very strongly about the help I received then and now. An old saying goes 'Dance with the one that you brought you to the dance'."

Please note: The Midi Jet Pro USB wireless MIDI system sends only MIDI data for use with an appropriate external MIDI synth such as the Motif-Rack XS. If you would like to send the AUDIO from the EWI4000s' built-in synth, you would need a wireless audio system. We currently do not sell wireless audio units, but we offer some excellent suggestions on models to use in the FAQ here.

This is the case that Patchman Music recommends for the Akai EWI5000, EWI4000s, and EWI USB. Although it was originally designed for a soprano sax, this Protec case can be used with all Akai EWI, Yamaha WX, and EVI models. This protective lightweight case features movable padded blocks that can be positioned for optimum full body support of the instrument. Convenient exterior pocket with built-in organizer and shoulder strap. This is a beautiful hard case and we strongly recommend it for all EWI5000, EWI4000s and EWI USB owners (always use the mouthpiece cap when transporting in the case to protect the delicate bite sensor).

Boss PSA-120s at Patchman Music Roland Store

Boss PSA-120s AC Adaptor (For use with the Akai EWI4000s)

 Replacement AC Adaptor for the Akai EWI3000m Power Supply at Patchman Music at Patchman Music

Replacement for Akai EW3000m AC Adaptor Power Supply

The Akai model replacement AC Adaptor for the Akai EWI3000m has long been discontinued but Patchman Music now offers a 100% compatible adaptor. We have tested this model and it works perfectly with the Akai EWI3000m as well as the Yamaha WT11, RY30, TG100, and others. This adaptor is actually BETTER than the original Akai brand power supply as it is smaller, lighter, more powerful, and accepts a wider range of input voltage (universal). This adaptor features 115-230V @ 47-63 Hz AC input, 15v 800ma DC output, 2.1mm connector, and a 4.5-foot cable. Tip / center is positive. It never hurts to have a spare. Stock up now!

Akai EWI4000s Mouthpiece Screw Patchman Music

repleacement screw for akai ewi ewi4000s ewi usb mouthpiece at Patchman Music Replacement STAINLESS STEEL Mouthpiece SCREW for EWI5000, EWI4000S, & EWI USB

The original EWI5000 and EWI4000s factory screw was made of a material that can rust and seize up. Not good! When this happens the mouthpiece is no longer removable and an expensive repair is needed as the old mouthpiece needs to be surgically cut off by a repair tech! We strongly recommend that all EWI50000 and EWI4000s owners replace the original mouthpiece screw with this STAINLESS STEEL type as soon as possible. EWI USB owners need not worry as Akai uses a stainless steel type from the factory on that model only. EWI5000 and EWI4000s owners should replace the mouthpiece screw ASAP as the factory screw will rust, strip, and seize up from moisture. Replace it now and save yourself the hassle and expense later on. Quick and simple installation using a small 3/16" Phillips head screwdriver.

Akai EWI-FR EWIFR Finger Rest for EWI3000 and EWI3020 wind controllers at Patchman Music

Click here to see it installed on an EWI3020

repleacement screw for akai ewi ewi4000s ewi usb mouthpiece at Patchman Music Akai EWI-FR Finger Rest for EWI3000 and EWI3020

Attention EWI3000 and EWI3020 players! Because the EWI3000 and EWI3020 keys respond electronically to touch and do not move, you must keep your fingers completely off the keys you don't want down or you get wrong notes and glitches. Players of open-hole instruments normally keep their fingers off open holes and will feel more at home with the EWI than sax players who usually rest their fingers lightly on open keys. To remedy this situation for the rest of us, Akai offered this snap-on finger rest, the EWI-FR, which provides 3 spring-loaded keys for each hand. Slide the EWIFR Finger Rests onto your EWI3000 or EWI3020 and you can rest your fingertips on these 6 spring-loaded pads! The Akai EWI-FR gives the player a sense of "moving keys".

Please note: Sorry, this item does NOT fit any other EWI model. The EWI-FR does NOT fit the EWI1000, EVI1000, EWI4000s, EWI USB, nor EWI5000. Email Matt if you have any questions regarding this item.

This item is NOT available in black but it fits both the EWI3020 and EWI3000 models.

 WX Recorder Cream

YAMAHA Recorder Cream

New 2 gram vial of genuine Yamaha Recorder Cream for use on the internal rubber mouthpiece seals on the EWI3000, EWI3020, WX5, WX11, or WX7. Use this cream regularly on the internal area of the rubber mouthpiece parts to protect, lubricate, maintain softness, and reduce aging and cracking. NOT for use on key switches or on the outside of the mouthpiece. Put a little on the inside of the mouthpiece and on the rubber gasket where the mouthpiece slides on and meets the body to allow easy future removal of the mouthpiece. It helps keep the rubber gasket moisturized to prevent it from cracking and tearing. Don't leave home without it! Highly recommended. (Not an Akai product).

NOT for use with the Akai EWI5000, EWI4000s, or EWI USB (there is no need).
