Looking for realistic/authentic alto/tenor sax EXS sound?

Tue Mar 16, 2021 8:47 am

I'm in the process of making a song, and I need a good sounding saxophone for the chorus lead. I've tried Logic's stock brass, but they all sound terrible, even the sax on my Jupiter 80. Anyone know where I can get a realistic sounding sax EXS? Any help would be super appreciative!

Let's try again. Does anyone know how to get good orchestral sounds generally, and much you can expect to pay for the privilege?

You are aware that these are completely different questions, right ? There is no saxophone in a standard orchestra. Yes, I know it was invented for exactly this, still, it didn't exactly catch on...

There is a myriad of orchstral libraries out there, from free to expensive, check out their demos. They all have one thing in common - you need to be able to write and arrange for orchestra to get decent results.
