WNAMM10: Akai Wind Synth With Arturia Sounds

Arturia have announced a limited edition bundle of the Arturia Brass 2 and Akai Pro EWI-USB. Frédéric Brun, Arturia CEO told us, "Arturia is extremely proud to be working with Akai Professional, a reference name in our industry, to bring a bundle that will satisfy the most discerning musicians. The EWI-USB is de facto an industry standard and it was a logical match to our new version of Brass."
Mark Frederick, Akai Professional V.P. of Sales and Marketing, added, "We are delighted to partner with Arturia, a young but innovative company. With this combination of Arturia Brass 2 and the EWI-USB, we are offering musicians a great solution at a great price." Here's the details from Arturia...
The Akai Professional EWI-USB is the reference wind-controller. It enables wind players to enjoy the same expressive control as in an acoustic instrument. While EWI-USB is easy and fun to use, it is also powerful, flexible, and most importantly reliable enough for use on stage and in the studio by professional musicians. Its USB interface means that all you need is nearly any Mac or PC and the included EWI-USB software, and you're ready to practice, perform, create, and record with a full collection of wind instrument sounds.
Arturia Brass is the award-winning software recreation of three wind instruments - a trumpet, a saxophone and a trombone –, now coming in version 2. All the characteristics of the real instruments have been analyzed and modelled by Ircam Paris through mathematical algorithms, to offer extreme realism and expressivity.
In version 2.0, BRASS offers an entirely redesigned interface with major new features and improvements:
  • New physical modelling of the saxophone
  • Two new Saxophone mouthpieces
  • Possibility to play four instruments at a time using a new Harmonization module.
  • Advanced spatialization possibilities
  • Improved MIDI control
  • Better integration into DAW software.
  • Entirely redesigned interface
