Silverwood Tenor Sax
Breath-controlled waveguide-based tenor sax
Silverwood Tenor Sax is a waveguide physical model of a Bb tenor sax. It is activated by a wind or breath controller and is monophonic. Its range is from G#2 to E6.
To play in tune the sample rate must be either 44.1 or 48 kHz.
This instrument is breath-controlled and without a wind or breath controller operating on CC2 or CC11 it will make no sound. I'm currently using a TEC breath controller, available at http://www.tecontrol.se/products/usb-midi-breath-controller. It plugs into a USB port and is very nice.
The panel controls include:
• Tuning – Octave, transposition, and fine tuning controls.
• Vibrations – Vibrato, tremolo, flutter tonguing, and growling.
• Model – Breath response speed, noise, punch, reed aperture & stiffness, bore efficiency, and slur timing.
• Modulation – Six MIDI modulation busses with 43 sources and 16 destinations.
