A collection of rare saxophone samples including mezzo-sopranos and the C Melody.
Part of Wallander Instruments state-of-the art WIVI virtual sax collections, the Saxaphone 2 instrument
library extends the range of the saxophones you get in Saxophones 1 (SKU#580583) with rarer gems like the sopraninos and bass
One popular, C melody, mezzo-soprano, and C soprano saxophones dropped from production. These non-transposing
instruments virtually disappeared due to the 1929 Wall Street crash and the Great Depression.
Now, thanks to Wallander
Instruments and their attention to detail, these hard-to-find saxophones and their unique voices are available again in virtual
form. Hidden gems in this collection include the edgy mezzo-soprano, and the C melody—a driving force in the 1920s closely
related to today's tenor sax.
The WIVI Player — the music and movie industry's best kept secret.
Wivi is used by artists, composers and producers for everything from radio hits to Hollywood blockbusters. Now you can also
enjoy the same expressiveness professionals have had access to for years.
Overcoming fixed velocity levels
A sample player depends on playback of recorded sounds. This is far from optimal, and imposes a number of limitations on your
Instead of one, or only a few velocity levels to choose from, with WIVI, you have seamless dynamics for all instruments; giving
a virtually unlimited amount of velocity levels.
You can also choose to draw your own curves for the dynamics of your
music, and WIVI automatically changes the timbre for you — even when you change dynamics in the middle of a note.
WIVI is capable of running large ensembles of individually modeled instruments — even on a single laptop.
time is virtually nonexistent compared to a sample library, and you will find that jumping between sequencer projects is
as easy as switching projects in your word processor or photo-editing software.
Since WIVI does not require disk streaming, or heaps of RAM or CPU, you can safely migrate parts of your template to WIVI
instruments while your sampler can run at virtually full capacity in the background.
More than just a tool
for the keyboard composer
You can play WIVI in real time using a wind controller, just like a real instrument.
WIVI it has quickly established itself as the first-choice software for wind controller players, with its beautiful timbre,
tongued note-action and blazing-fast response.
By using WIVI with a breath or wind controller, you can learn to play
hundreds of acoustic and experimental wind instruments.
Why stay in the studio, when you can rehearse at the concert hall?
With WIVI you have multiple environments to mix your instruments in — each room with its own unique acoustic properties.
brings a true live experience to your digital studio, with a unique graphical positioning system; where you can walk around
the room and listen to the sound from any position.
WIVI automatically calculates proper acoustic properties for all
your instruments, one-by-one. Every instrument gets its own unique sound, perfectly balanced and positioned in the mix.
new, expressive synthetic instruments, arpeggios and multi-layered patches
Because all instruments in WIVI are based on the sound of real orchestral instruments, even experimental patches get a natural
dynamic response and expressiveness, with unlimited velocity layers and without the use of filters.
The most powerful way of creating new synthetic patches in WIVI is to use the randomization features via WIVI Templates. The
templates are a groundbreaking new way of editing instrument parameters. Templates are simple scripts that allow you to store
and recall useful tweaks and parameter settings at any time.
Tweaking knobs may be fun, but not very effective. Templates
let you take control over some of the most powerful features of WIVI, even as a complete novice.
WIVI v2 comes with
several powerful templates that automatically generate experimental instruments, such as random arpeggios, plucked instruments,
pads and leads — with any acoustic WIVI instrument.
WIVI v2 also raises the bar for music synthesis by marrying
the most expressive virtual instruments with revolutionary loop sequencing technology.
Using the built-in sequencer in WIVI, you can create advanced arpeggios, articulations and musical phrases in minutes.
