That's one of the reasons why I opted for the Yamaha controller. I simply did not like the EWI sounds for the kind of music I make my living by playing.
I needed sax, trumpet, trombone, guitar, and other more emulative voices than the synthy sounds.
I also didn't like the fact that the bit sensor didn't give me full control over the vibrato "return to pitch zero" speed. Instead a capacitor discharge regulates that, making a vibrato like a slow leslie speed impossible.
