Description
The new first generation EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) is for wind players to play and control synthesizers. The early models also came with their own case with a dedicated synthesizer module with 4 switches and 5 knobs.

The original unit only sent one cv signal by blowing through the mouthpiece. The gate was triggered by the pressure of the player's air through a sensor in the mouthpiece.

The mouth piece measured the air being blown through which did not actually flow through the instrument. A nice feature was the unit offered the same expression as a Trumpet the harder you blew the more dynamic the instrument was.

The EVI had keys and switches like a real Trumpet with thumb rollers and a canister on one end. The player could adjust and play the key and octave of a connected synthesizer by rotating the cannister in combination.
