Zero-G has announced it is shipping Sax Supreme, a vintage soprano saxophone instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
SAX SUPREME is a vintage soprano saxophone that has been recorded in an anechoic chamber and programmed as a very high quality Kontakt Instrument with a custom graphic interface. It comes with a 1.6Gb samplebank of over 1200 samples to create amazingly nuanced playing.
Sax Supreme will give you the intimacy, warmth and the natural sound of a real instrument. Its straightforward and easy-to-use interface with Advanced Kontakt Scripting allows for incredibly realistic phrasing and performance.
The seven velocity layers and four round robin samples per note make your playing come alive and the incredibly complex legato and modulation scripting do all the work for you behind the scenes so all you have to do is play.
In addition, to create even more realism, we have also incorporated controls that can add the actual mechanical noise of the saxophone keys in the same way as they sound in a real sax. There is also a choice of ten different convolution reverbs.
A great saxophone performance is all about expression and feeling. Sax Supreme is the nearest thing to having a real saxophonist on call in the studio.

Puremagnetik has released Baritron, a saxophone sound library packed into a collection of 11 multisampled instruments in three eclectic categories.
Four instruments (All, Soft, Loud, Staccato) capture the classic acoustic tones of the baritone saxophone. The “All” instrument combines everything as multiple layers of velocity articulations. From quiet reed slaps to wailing growls and release clicks, Baritron has fully captured all of these saxophone nuances. Two FX instruments (Mash and Slap) are focused on recreating the pseudo-random keymashing and the percussive tongue slaps that the saxophone does so well.
In addition, Puremagnetik has created 5 experimental instruments that push the sonic barrier. Tron-Doom was made with a doubled talkbox process layered on a sub octave pitch shifter. Tron-Drillex was the result of vocoding the saxophone with the sound of an electric drill articulating a stratocaster. Tron-Lazer has 3 velocity layers of sax vocoded with a series of descending pitch slides. Tron-Maoff convolves the sound of a bowed string into the sax, combined with a enveloped filter. And finally… Tron-Vowelz is vocoded with a human voice to create 4 different tones, blendable and interchangeable.
- 11 multi-sampled instruments with expressive articulations.
- Over 500 high quality samples .
- Advanced Ableton Live Racks with customized Macro Controls .
- Kontakt KSP easy edit GUI .
- Logic EXS version includes Channel Strip Settings with Logic effects.
- EXS Universal file format for easy importing into any audio host.
Baritron for Ableton Live, Kontakt, Logic (and any host that can import EXS24 format) is now available to Puremagnetik subscribers.
