EVI Collage Patchman Music Which Wind Controllers have been produced previously?
There have been a number of wind controllers produced over the years starting back in the early 1970s. The most common commercially produced wind controllers of the past were the Computone Lyricon series of instruments, the Steiner EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument models Steiner-Parker EVI, Steiner EVI, Steinerphone EVI, Crumar EVI, Akai EVI1000) and EWI (Electronic Woodwind Instrument models Steinerphone EWI, Akai EWI1000, EWI3000, and EWI3020), the Casio DH series (DH-100, DH-200 being the most common, also DH-500, DH-230, DH-800 and DH-800), and Yamaha’s WX7, WX11, and WindJamm’r controllers. All of these models are no longer in production. There was even an uncompleted wind controller from synth designer Buchla called the “Buchla Wind” that was part of a series of alternate controllers that included the “Lightning” and the “Thunder”.
