Vienna Symphonic Library Saxophones Standard Library

Vienna Symphonic Library Saxophones

Vienna Symphonic Library Saxophones Details

This Collection offers the complete saxophones family. The performance algorithms of the Vienna Instruments work wonders with these samples. The focus has been directed equally to orchestral settings as well as to jazz. Famous examples of orchestral works using these instruments include the saxophone quartet by Alexander Glasunow, the alto saxophone concerts by Glasunow and Debussy, and the Castello from Mussorgsky‚??s ‚??Pictures‚?Ě. In addition, a host of articulations for jazz and big band are included, such as bends, tongue slaps, growling, screams, extended harmonics, key sounds, and more. In an unprecedented development, long and short downward ending phrases triggered as release samples have been added for heightened realism. The breathy tones stem from the legendary ‚??Barfly sessions‚?Ě at the Silent Stage, when the lights were dimmed, setting the mood for softer tones.

The Saxophones Full Library contains 38 GB of uncompressed sample data in 44.1kHz/24-bit. Due to an innovative optimization process, the Vienna Instruments engine decompresses the samples in real-time, so that they take up only 25 GB of space on your hard disk. Please note: Even if you licensed the Standard Library only, the Full Library of your Collection gets installed on your hard drive since Standard and Extended Library can‚??t be separated due to structural database requirements.
