Samplemodeling - The Sax Brothers (Mr.Sax A / Mr.Sax B / Mr.Sax T)
After the great success of Mr. Sax T, we were asked by our customers
to extend the Sax family. Here are two brand new brothers, Mr. Sax A.,
and Mr. Sax B., exploiting the same technology, but based on completely
new sample material, with a lot of new added features, and supplied with
the newborn Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 Player.
The Sax Brothers?
Yes, the male members of the saxophone family.
Miss Sax S (the soprano) is presently under evaluation for feasibility.
What’s new in Mr. Sax A, B & T ?
The Alto and Baritone Sax are completely new instruments, designed and
programmed for the new NI Kontakt 3.5 Player. The current version is
As in Mr. Sax T, v. 1.02, the main panel allows for monitoring and
inputting control data. It includes a drop down menu for Keyboard,
Breathcontroller, Yamaha and Akai windcontroller input, symmetrical and
asymmetrical pitchbend response, velocity or CC controlled portamento
Automatic recognition of the audio card sample rate has
been implemented, thus obviating the need of manually setting the
corresponding value on the instrument GUI.
Channel aftertouch is
now recognized and can be used to control several parameters, such as
vibrato intensity or rate, subharmonic, growl or flutter intensity. A
user defined smoothing parameter helps reduce any sudden jump of the
less-than-optimal aftertouch response of several keyboards.
In addition, MIDI remapping of incoming CCs is now possible, by a dedicated GUI (see below).
And Mr. Sax T?
Mr. Sax T, vers. 1.51 has been reprogrammed in exactly the same way as the other Brothers
How to play the Sax Brothers?
These instruments are working either standalone, or as a plugin (VST or
RTAS for the PC, and VSR, RTAS or AU for Mac). They employ (and
require) state-of-the-art technology. They have been thoroughly tested
on several computers, PC and Mac, and on several hosts and sequencers.
More detailed information about tested systems can be found under
benchmarks. For further details about instrument technology, the overall
philosophy behind these instruments, information on how to play, and
nice keyboard demo performed by Stefano Lucato, please refer to the Mr.
Sax T v1.02 page.
