In 1977, he built his highly customized Mighty Serge, a 15-panel system that he would use on his own albums. He also built a system for Craig Huxley that he then sold to Michael Stearns. He taught Stearns how to play and customize it. Michael Stearns would later become famous for albums performed on this Serge, such as Planetary Unfolding (1981) and the soundtrack of Chronos (1984).
The EWI wind controllers are extremely versatile and expressive instruments. All of the EWIs use breath, sax- or trumpet-like fingerings, bite, and thumbs to control the instrument. They must be used with a companion synthesizer module. The Steiner EWI has an easily recognizable sound that can resemble a cross between a soprano saxophone and a deep cello.
