Color your sound

Set the atmosphere with two distinct playing styles, each with its own extensive set of articulations for every instrument. It’s easy to shift between moods to construct dynamic performances.

Red Illustration

Red mood

Hot, loud, and exciting. Fire up a red mood to deliver captivating solos and energetic parts for uptempo jazz, rock, funk, or any pieces that demand punchy, assertive lines.
Blue Illustration

Blue mood

Cool, soft, and mellow. Dive into the blue mood for slower jazz, soul, blues, pop ballads, or tracks that need a relaxed feel and smooth textures.

Upfront sound

Each sax was recorded in the solo booth at Berlin’s Teldex Studio for a direct, dry, and detailed sound. Mixable mic positions let you fine-tune the tone. A comprehensive set of articulations—including jazz scoops, swells, falls, growls, and multiple vibratos—help you deliver nuanced, expressive parts.

About the legato styles

Play straight out of the box with adaptive legato—play moderately, and you get a nice slurred legato. Play faster and you’ll automatically get faster legato transitions.

A single velocity layer for maximum expressiveness

Instead of recording fixed p, mf, and f layers, the musicians were free to follow their instincts in choosing the best dynamic for a solo part. This gives rise to lively, dynamic long notes in different styles. While higher velocity leads the instrument to play a subtle crescendo, playing more softly results in a slight decrescendo. By using a single velocity layer, we reduce any phasing effect to a minimum.

Mic merging
Preserve your system resources: Fine-tune your mix using multiple mic positions, then merge into a single channel within the player.

Greater usability
SINE is designed to complement the compositional workflow. Create on the fly with auto keyswitch options, and easy remapping tools.
