SaxLab is a forthcoming VST/AU-format wind instrument synthesizer with several unique features. SaxLab uses multi-sample playback of wind-instrument samples and incorporates a specially designed four-voice crossfade system to create more realistic wind instrument sounds.

SaxLab's key features include a wide range of preset waveforms, an effects section that includes chorus and reverb, as well as extensive real-time modulation options. Special attention has been paid to making the performance controls as rich and responsive as possible, so that the instrument can be realistically played.

SaxLab is the successor to Dash Signature's popular TubiLeSax VST instrument, adding many new features and an improved sound engine. An upgrade path from TubiLeSax to SaxLab will be available for registered users of TubiLeSax.

SaxLab contains a range of features including:

  • Many different SoundSets for various saxophone instruments.
  • Monophonic multi-sample playback with internal four-voice crossfade.
  • Adjustable mix of three sound layers for each note: the "Air" layer, the "Keys" layer and the "Pitched" layer.
  • Air/Keys and Pitched sound layer crossfade point is set by MIDI velocity.
  • User-definable, velocity-sensitive amplitude envelope.
  • Tonal characteristics of the instrument's overall sound can be defined by the user.
  • Real-time control of the instrument's brightness.
  • Three modes of mono performance: Legato, Retrigger, Alternate
  • Control of PitchBend and Glide.
  • Random pitch deviation and body frequency deviation per note.
  • Envelope, LFO and MIDI-controlled vibrato and tremolo.
  • Stereo chorus and stereo reverb effects.
  • Simple tuning selection via a "one-click" menu.
  • MidiLearn available for every control.
  • Sample accurate timing, full automation and settings are saved with the song

System Requirements:

  • VST2.0 or AU capable host software,
  • Macintosh, Mac OSX 10.2.6 or higher, 750 MHz or higher CPU
  • PC, Windows 95 or higher, 750 MHz or higher CPU
