Using a EWI USB breath controller on the Elektron Digitone

Floyd Steinberg

"Using a breath controller on a synthesizer can unlock a whole new world of sounds. Here's how to set up the Elektron #digitone, a 4 operator FM #synthesizer, to work with a AKAI #EWI breath controller. Table of contents below. The demo in the beginning is one take, no external effects, Digitone only. Track 1 is reserved for the EWI, the other 3 tracks use parameter locking and program switching.
