Introducing Embertone's first Virtual Instrument for your iPhone/iPad: a deeply sampled iOS instrument with true legato, and the only virtual instrument with Sexiness Control. If you're looking for that George Michael/"Careless Whispers" sound... look no further!

This is your digital solution to sax saturation. Bring your sax levels to 11... Try Sensual Sax today!

- MIDI input / output
- Audio Unit 3
- Audiobus
- True legato sampling for realistic note transitions
- Three sets of articulations

Controls include 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). 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.

Founded by composer/orchestrator Alex Davis and composer/sound designer Jonathan Churchill, Embertone has been producing next-level virtual instruments since 2012. Its mission is simple: sample lots of great instruments, and bring them to market to inspire awesome new music! The co-founders seriously love what they do, admiring the likes of Tonehammer, Sample Modeling, and Sonic Couture — companies that have led the way to this new age of deeply-sampled virtual instruments, and aim to move that tradition forward by finding new ways to capture the essence of an instrument and program it in an intuitive and responsive package... and, of course, offer it to the composing community at an atttractive price! As the go-to company for musicians looking for realistic and fun virtual instruments since releasing the free Intimate Strings LITE for Native Instruments’ industry-standard KONTAKT (4.2.4+), the full-blown Friedlander Violin subsequently became the flagship solo product for the KONTAKT PLAYER platform while setting the production standard for future realistic-sounding releases.

Great sound, but lacking in range.

This app is fantastic, but has one major flaw: the range is way too small. You can move the register around by unlocking it, but I wish there was a way to lock it at a wider range. How am I supposed to play Careless Whisper on repeat over and over without moving the register back and forth?!?!

If this fix could be implemented, this would be a flawless app.

Ignore negative reviews!

Bug found. So if I export song from GarageBand iOS, it seems to place the sax into staccato but I want it in legato. Please fix! The work around is to merge the track into a wave format. But not sure if it’s a gb bug or sensual sax bug.
However my opinion stands. This is a great app and I hope devs keep supporting it.

I really don’t know how this doesn’t have 5 stars. What an AMAZING app! Lovely!

Bueno a mi me gusto ,

I need help.

The app is good, I use it in Garageband and in plenty of occasions when I’m recording, it appears and interface that states: “The Audio Plugin stopped do you want to deactivate it or execute it again?”
It’s so bothering and the app had a high price for what it offers.
When it came the day to export my song, the sound of the Sax does not include the effects I configured in the Garageband, it just sounds one note that last 1 second and without the effects.
Please, I need help!
