Description
A Jazz Funk piece I performed on the Akai EWI USB Wind controller along with electric piano on the Akai MPK mini and sampled drum loop. Every patch except drums is the Korg M1 - I used Patchmans' M1 modified patches for wind instruments (http://www.patchmanmusic.com/akai.html). First track I've put out using my EWI MIDI instrument - feels much more like performing!

I think
I don't have the correct outfit on to get into this groove. It recalls a time when bell bottom pants, polyester, bright colors and thick soled shoes with clunky heels were the rage. Love the brass.

No Fro
...and I don't have sufficient hair to cover my shoulders or fashion into a fro! Thanks for listening. I think the Korg M1 sounds blend very well. Not as realistic as some other software modeled instruments, but fun all the same. I'm still trying to transfer trumpet skills to the MIDI EWI, but so far its been a blast!

Thanks!
Thanks for the kind words. The EWI is so much fun - I love playing the riffs on something other than a keyboard. Lots of fun to put together the harmonies piece by piece. I'm amazed how good the Korg still sounds.
