Electronic wind instument / breath controller


Hey all, I'm trying to figure out if I should buy an electronic wind instrument such as the Akai EWI. Before that, I want to make sure that it can control the Deluge's functions.

The EWI mimics a saxophone and has two mouth sensors : bite and breath. Breath controllers send CC#2 signals. For some synthesizers (such as the Digitone), the manual explicitely states how to assign parameters to MIDI breath controller commands. The Deluge's manual, however, doesn't explicitely mention it.

Would an EWI controller, with bite and breath controls, be fully "understood" by the Deluge, like a more traditional controler (knobs and faders) would?

    works out of the box with ewi 4000s. 👍
    trills are a bit laggy on the deluge, velocity control is amazing
