Hello all,
I have an EWI USB and while I love the instrument and the way it plays, I'm very dissatisfied with the sounds provided by the included Garritan software. If any of you know of a way for me to get some new sounds for this instrument, I would really appreciate your help. I'm clueless when it comes to most music technology, MIDI included.

Thanks,
Steppin

No luck, I'm afraid. None of the patches they offer are compatible with EWI USB. BUT! I was doing a research and may have found a solution. I may be able to download the patches, then open them with a program such as Logic, Ableton, Cakewalk, etc (none of which I have) and then run my EWI USB through that program and play the patches that way, but I have no idea as to whether or not this would work, and I don't want to shell out $90 (plus however much for an appropriate software program) to find out.

Can anybody confirm this for me?

Thanks,

Amazing sounds, but you need reason, but they work great with the ewi USB

38conn: Reason sounds like it could be a good option. Certainly cheaper than upgrading to a compatible EWI, at least for the time being.

dubrosa22: These sound like they could work, but it sounds quite complicated to set up, and as I'm really, really bad with computers, I hesitate to take the risk. The Kontakt player seems like the most user-friendly option, but I don't know if it can be compatible with third party sounds, like those created by Patchman. Is there any more information you could provide?

I've just barely dipped into the Kontakt player (and not with an EWI, just a keyboard midi) but there are lots of 3rd party patches out. It's quite popular.
Did you see the 2nd Kontakt link I provided? An example of EWI specific Kontakt patches.
