Four solo instruments—two colorful moods
Tap into the sound of the most expressive and visceral of all the woodwinds. From cool blue tones to red-hot growls, Duplex Saxophones offers a rich palette for crafting engaging sax performances. With four solo instruments, a choice of playing styles, and unique attention to detail, Duplex Saxophones is the definitive contemporary saxophone library.
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.
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.
