The classical Swing big-band ensemble includes 5 saxophones: 2 Altos, 2 Tenors and 1 Baritone. The Alto saxophone is very versatile and apart from taking the lead voice in big band scores is also a common solo instrument. The Alto saxophone is a transposing instrument in Eb, sounding a major 6th lower than it is notated. It became famous especially through musicians like Ornette Coleman and Charlie Parker.
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 Standard Library of the Download Instrument contains all of the Alto saxophone samples of the Vienna Special Edition and of the Special Edition PLUS as well as some additional articulations. The Full Library offers the complete articulations on par with the ones of the big DVD Collection Saxophones Extended Library. Please find a detailed list of included playing techniques under the menu item Sample Content.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
