Sample Modeling The Sax Brothers [Kontakt]

Alto, Baritone & Tenor Saxophone.

The saxophone is probably the most difficult instrument to emulate. Despite several attempts using different technologies, ranging from traditional sampling to sophisticated physical modeling, the results obtained so far fell short of the expectations. This is particularly true if real time playing is concerned.

The Sax Brothers employ an entirely new technology, developed by Stefano Lucato when it became clear that all the previously applied approaches simply could not do. The technical name is Synchronous Wave Triggering. It uses samples as a base material, chromatically performed by a professional sax players over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument. But the analogy with a sample based library ends here. The underlying, proprietary technology allows continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants. Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato/portamento, vibrato, ornamentations & trills with phase continuity, constant-formant pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

Mr. Sax A, B and T are all supplied with the NI Kontakt Player 4, the read-only version of Native Instruments flagship sampler. It involves many new features and bugfixes, including 64 bit, extended memory and multicore support, DFD optimisation, better compliance with some OS and hosts, aftertouch support etc. The Player is included as a separate installer, and no additional software is required to play the instrument. Stand-alone mode, as well as plugin formats VST, DXi, RTAS and AU are supported.

The instruments can be also loaded and played in the full version of Kontakt. Please note, however, that they cannot be opened or modified, and no access to the samples, impulse responses or instrument programming is provided.

Hello . I use Akai EWI 5000, Cubase 10, Macbook pro I want to use Kontakt with The Sax Brothers software and software from other manufacturers, I don’t like internal sounds in Akai EWI. But Ewi and Kontakt not work together. Someone who have setup for Ewi, Kontakt and Sax Brothers If I play with Ewi's internal saxophone sound, the playing feeling is okay. But if I use Sax Brothers, it will be completely wrong. If I change the settings in Kontakt and Sax Brothers, there will be no change. I have Googled and try to find help but have not found anything that helps. It feels like it's something I misunderstood. Can someone help me with this. Thanks

I first purchased the Sax Brothers program as I heard many good things about it. Unfortunately it didn't work on my version of Kontakt and was informed I would need to purchase the latest version of Kontakt Sampler 6.2.2, which I did, but the Sax Brothers programs still doesn't work. I get a message saying "this patch is encrypted and cannot be loaded unless the respective Library is registered properly." No one here is returning my email request for assistance, so now I'm stuck with a program that won't work, not to mention all the time I've wasted trying different ways to make it work. Some basic instructions would've been great as I was ready to purchase several more programs from this vendor. Hopefully someone gets back to me with proper instructions!
