Replace those dull Akai EWV2000 factory sounds with professional quality wind controller sounds from PATCHMAN MUSIC- the leading authority in breath controlled sound design. PATCHMAN MUSIC now offers TWO professional quality wind controller soundbanks for the Akai EWV2000 EWI/EVI sound module. Each soundbank contains 64 all-new Pro Patches programmed by Matt Traum, an experienced wind synthesist and sound designer, optimized to be played with the Akai EWI1000 or EVI1000 wind controller. These sounds require a wind controller for proper use.

These EWV2000 soundbanks were designed with the philosophy that they should be useful to a wind instrument player. You won't find any pianos, organs, or drums in these Volumes. You WILL find lots of super expressive solo sounds, classic analog timbres, emulative acoustic wind instrument patches, fat synth leads, and punchy synth basses. Many hours were devoted to tweaking these soundbanks to perfection. The result is two professional soundbanks far superior to the EWV2000's presets. Every parameter in every patch has been evaluated to make these patches as expressive as possible. If you are lucky enough to own an EWV2000 you owe it to yourself to use the best sounds possible.

(Note: These soundbanks are NOT compatible with any other Akai sound module. Please click on the Akai logo at the left for our other Akai soundbanks.)

Yellowjackets EWI Virtuoso Bob Mintzer Comments...

"Matt at Patchman Music has come up with several great sounds for the EWV2000 and EWI3000m. They respond beautifully and allow for lots of expressiveness and variety of dynamic and color. For non-programers and programers alike I urge you to check out these patches. Many of these patches are extremely fat and lush. All are quite interesting in composition. I look foward to working with them! Upon an initial try many patches felt very comfortable and allowed me to play with great ease of execution. This is no easy feat. Finally there are some sounds that make the EWI feel and sound like a real, living instrument. Bravo Matt!" - Bob Mintzer, world reknown recording artist, sax and EWI virtuoso, arranger, with the Yellowjackets.

EWI Virtuoso Ed Calle Comments...

"Your stuff is great. I am just starting to get the EWI back in shape for the new tour and will be using your sounds extensively. All the best." - Ed Calle, Grammy Nominated, Sony Latin Recording Artist and wind controller virtuoso. Has worked with Steve Gadd, John Pattitucci, Arturo Sandoval, and many other top professionals

"I highly recommend the Patchman Music wind synth library. In my opinion these are the best patches available for pro wind synth players. I find that most of the sounds are very very good." - Gary Bias (M.C. Hammer, Earth, Wind & Fire, Randy Crawford)

"The VIOLA sound in this series is the best I've ever heard! It really is a distinctive sound, not just a violin playing below its register. My personal favorites were #51 PICCOLO (very convincing!), #52 BASSOON, #54 ENG. HORN (again, a distinct sound-not just a low oboe!), #55 CLARINET, #56 BACH REED, #61 BARI SAX. There are some impressive bass sounds as well. Check out #27 ARP 2600, #33 SYNCLAV!, #43 D-50 BRS., and #78 CAR'S LEAD. I was checking out another group of patches once, and my wife commented that all seemed to sound like flutes of some sort. This set does not have that problem." - James West, The Flit Gun 'The EWV Newsletter'

"I recently purchased Patchman's EWV2000 Volume 2 patchset for my aging EWV2000. Rather than go with Patchman's usual bank architecture of 'a little bit of everything', this collection is all analog, and in my opinion fully exploits what the EWV2000 was meant to do- classic analog synthesis. 64 patches of almost every conceivable style of analog synth you could want. The programming has exploited the strengths of the EWV2000. My personal favorites are the resonant patches as well as the patches using fourth, fifth and octave intervals. The 70's style patches are great for my fusion gig too- really just lots of good analog stuff here, and if you like to program your own, these patches can save you time by acting as templates as many classic analogs styles and more are covered in this set. In sum, I have probably underestimated the EWV2000 in the past as a synth. It is a great analog synth and was way ahead of the eventual analog revival back in the late eighties when the Yamaha DX7 reigned supreme and rom'plers were becoming popular. For those that have an EWV2000 and like analog, this is the bank to get. At under a buck a patch it is a bargain and you get the added bonus of direct CV control with your EWI/EVI." - Steve Anderson (Founding Member of the IWSA, The EVI Zone)

"Dear Matt, I want to thank you for the new sounds. The new EWV2000 Volume 2 patches are like having a new instrument. They load right up from a CD player and you are ready to go. I even found them to be an inspiration on a piece I have been working on. Thank you again."

"Received the EWV2000 Volume 2 patches. Thanks. There are some great patches in this bank. In fact, I like this bank the best out of the four that I own. Nice work. The pure analog theme is quite appealing."

"The Patchman patches are quite good, IMO - patches are very responsive - I can growl, and flutter with breath alone, and the only other synth that can do that is the [Yamaha] VL... If you want to use your EWV, the Patchman patches give you the motivation... the documentation that came with the cassette is quite detailed and thorough... I wish I had gotten these sooner. Nicely organized... Patches are expressive and easy to play. The synth sounds are terrific, such as the ARP and Moog sounds. I liked the JEAN LUC patch as well. Also, the best analog saxes I have ever heard... The real strength of this soundbank is the monosynth sounds, which are superb! And the basses are good too. Endorsement: If you own a EWV you should consider getting these... I have new respect for my EWV!"

"Hi, just a quick note to thank you for the GREAT patches. I'm a programmer / sound designer myself and have an appreciation for just how much work it is to write a bank of sounds as responsive, deep, consistant and useful as you have done here. VERY well done, sir. My hat's off to you. I'm looking forward to my next EWI gig so I can use them in front of people. Thanks again and it was a pleasure doing business with you."

"I'm really enjoying the new-found freedoms available to me with your wind controller patches for my EWV2000, M1, and Matrix-1000. Playing them is causing me to realize how hard it's been to control and be lyrical with the sounds I've used in the past."
