Alto Saxophone

Quick Overview

Alto Saxophone
Price From: $62.00

Details

The musician for all the instruments, Robert Bernhard, plays in illustrious circles. His experience in orchestral music is as profound as his improvisations in jazz, funk and blues. He has captured all the nuances of the Selmer Mark VI series instruments (reissues of the famous vintage saxes of the Sixties) – from sensitive to aggressive, from whispering to screaming, exploiting the full dynamic range of these instruments.

The download product contains all of the Alto saxophone samples of the Vienna Special Edition and of the Special Edition PLUS as well as some additional articulations. Please find a detailed list of included playing techniques under the menu item Volume Contents. Of course you’ll also get access to download the Vienna Instruments player software.
