Solo Tenor Sax

Studio Series Tenor Saxophone marks 8Dio’s continuing commitment to push the boundaries of advanced techniques and achieve a modern, playable, and fully customizable studio sound. The Tenor Saxophone is one of of over a dozen instruments within the saxophone family. The Tenor saxophone first gained popularity in military bands and is often played within a quartet. The saxophone quickly became a standard instrument in concert bands, and the Tenor Saxophone is often used as a member of the orchestra and in gospel music. It is also heavily featured as a solo instrument in Jazz. Recently, the Saxophone has gained popularity in modern pop music being featured with artists like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and The Weekend. 

The Studio Tenor Saxophone has its own fully capable mixer with standard functions such as Output Routing, Volume, and Panning as well as our more advanced offerings such as the new Distance Control, which seamlessly blends between a close, dry signal and a wide, spacious signal. 

We gave you direct access to dozens of advanced articulations and modern playing styles along with a full range of tempo-synced articulations. Our Intimate Studio Series is the next step in a new journey to deliver the highest caliber of players in the most advanced virtual instruments to date.
