“Sensual Sax” from Embertone can now be had on your iOS device for playing solo, or with others. A new sampled saxophone virtual instrument. While some of us semi-dinosaur MIDI music dudes and dudettes might eschew the lowly iPhone and iPad for music creation when we have our various mega-rig Mac Pro studios to play with, the fact is that the largest growth base for new musicians is now on mobile devices. So, with this in mind, if that sounds like you, then a really cool new product from Embertone might make you breathless.

What’s kind of amazing, listening to the audio and video demos, how far we’ve come from my lowly 20th century samplers when a $5 app sounds this good.

The new app was created “in close collaboration with Vietnam-based Blue Mangoo, makers of the innovative iFretless instrument apps.” Virtual instrument developer Embertone is proud to announce availability of Sensual Saxophone — its first foray into the wonderful world of iOS with a self-explanatory, super-sexy-sounding virtual instrument intended to literally blow the musical minds of professionals and amateurs alike.

Sensual Saxophone is the world’s first iOS instrument to feature true legato samples, no less, and a truly desirable digital solution to sax saturation. Sensual Saxophone should certainly catch the eye (and ear) of all who see (and hear) it. Indeed, it is the only virtual saxophone to feature an eye-poppingly enormous SEX knob — bang in the centre of its glitzy GUI (Graphical User Interface) that’s as easy to use as it is easy on the eye. Edge that SEX knob downwards and the sax sounds dry as a bone… but touch the knob and listen to that sound grow into something much more sexy! Switching SENSUALITY to ON ensures that the user always has the right accompaniment for evenings echoing with pleasure!

More musically meaningful (and useful) controls also abound, including REVERB (with controllable AMOUNT and ROOM SIZE settings); VIBRATO (with dedicated DEPTH slider); DELAY (with control over AMOUNT and TIME); and switchable LEGATO, SUSTAIN, and STACCATO playing styles using the onscreen lockable keyboard (switchable to DOUBLE KEYBOARD for further flexibility). Furthermore, since Sensual Saxophone is Embertone’s first foray into the wonderful world of iOS, it goes without saying that it is compatible with all major iOS-based DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations), working with Apple’s Audio Unit Extensions technology — that brings the Audio Units system-level full plug-in architecture model (that was previously only available to third-party developers like Embertone in OS X) to iOS — as well as Inter-App Audio and Audiobus for full communication with the outside musical world.

Embertone embraces iOS, indeed; if its goal for this smokin’ app was for it to be both beautiful and useful to professionals and amateurs alike then it has surely succeeded. Yet it has also added a deep dollop of unadulterated fun into the musical mix… maybe even a dash of romance! Raise your sax levels to 11… by downloading Sensual Saxophone for iPad (2, mini, and above) and iPhone/iPod Touch (5 and above) today!
