Recreate the aesthetics and nuances of Balkan music

Balkan Sax is a playable alto sax that perfectly captures the aesthetics and intricacies of Balkan music.  The instrument has 18 exciting articulations, including sustained notes with strong vibratos, strong normal-double and triple staccatos, short glissandos up and down (scoops), and lots of stylistic embellishments and tempo-synchronized approach notes to give your melody a vibrant life.

A Must Have for producers and composers seeking extreme realism and quick satisfaction! Balkan Sax features two top-notch reverb algorithms, delay, and a gritty distortion pedal-like effect in addition to a very intuitive, simple-to-use, and ready-to-play interface. Appropriate for a wide range of musical genres and styles, including global music, jazz, pop, traditional music, and music in the style of Bregović.
