  1. Training Material
    Just wondering if there is software or apps that facilitate learning popular Jazz songs. Something where you can slow down and repeat sections, exercises and such as well as full backing tracks for saxophone. Thanks!
  2. Acoustics
    Hi all I am a "weekend warrior" sax player, and my day job for the last 30+ years has been designing audio electronics and writing audio algorithms. Since I'm approaching my retirement years, I undertook a project that combines my hobby and my expertise. The problem I am trying to solve is to...
  3. Polls and Surveys
    Which do you prefer? I used Sibelius in college, but it's been a long time and I could go either way now. A friend of mine is a contemporary composer and he likes how Sibelius handles alternate notations, but I'm mostly doing jazz and pop arrangements.
  4. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hi guys, Im looking for pool of songs or software that plays playback on specific key (and different kind of music- blues, jazz, relaxed, funk, etc...) and practice improvising with it. I tried using youtube for playbacks but there are not many playbacks, it very finite. I will be happy for...
  5. Forum Problem Reports and Questions
    All underlying software components needed to run this Forum (and other SOTW pages) are now in need for updating. For this project the Forum will be turned off on Thursday starting circa 12 noon GMT (8 AM EDT – Eastern Daylight Time). This effort will take approx. 6-10 hours. Will post closer...
  6. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Has anyone bought this RealBook Software Program DVD sold online for $127? If so how good is it? Does it work like they show in the video? http://www.realbooksoftware.com/RealBook.php?page=Sheet%20Music%20Jazz%20Standards&gclid=CPvl0r3w3sECFRMatAod0SsA7w
  7. Notation Software, MIDI, etc
    Hello all, I need to get some recording software, but as I have no idea what to buy, I must ask for advice. I need software that can run on both Windows and Mac. The more user friendly the better, as I am the most technologically illiterate teen I know. Basic is good, but I'd like something...
  8. Electronic Equipment
    I was seeing a little more latency than I wanted in Audacity running under Ubuntu 12.04 Linux on my HP2140 when I had a lot of tracks playing, so I installed AV Linux instead. Haven't had a chance to see if it solved the latency problem (although I wouldn't be surprised, as it claims to be...
  9. Announcements and Bulletin Board

To celebrate the launching, we are giving away FREE copies of Reel Ear to saxontheweb.net forum visitors (a $29.95 value) from right now until October 1st, 2012...
  10. Notation Software, MIDI, etc
    Does anybody know a good, easy to use, app for this? All I would really want it to do would be easy notation, transposition, and the ability to email and print the file. Playback would be no bad thing either, but not a big deal. Let me know if you can recommend anything! Thanks Oh, and I don't...
  11. Electronic Equipment
    I had noticed that there were some older threads posted about the WX5 but none of them had really addressed my concerns. I really don't have any experience with music production software or anything like that on the computer so I kind of jumped into this, but I saw a great deal on a WX5, which I...
  12. Suggestion Box & Topic Requests
    In the repair and maintenance section, there is a thread on key fitting of high quality in content and educational value, which I would propose as a sticky. However, at one point the discussion evolves into a heated and acrimonious debate on thread cutting. These engineers are passionate...
  13. Tips and Techniques
    Yeah, that's right. I DON'T have an iPhone. And I've felet a little out of the circle of cool kids. But, now I got an EVO 4G and very happy with it. And since they just came out with the iReal B for Android this weekend (with playback and transposing and EVERYTHING)! I'm all excited about...
  14. Announcements!
    Right or wrong, SOTW Forum was updated from vBulletin SW from v.4.0.3 to 4.0.6 yesterday. This took (again) more time than expected, it was a three day ordeal. Except for very short periods, the forum was operational during the transaction. Version 4.0.6 won't introduce much new functionality...
  15. RULES / General Info / FAQ
    Completed finally today updating vBulletin SW from v.4.0.3 to 4.0.6. This took (again) more time than expected, a three day ordeal. "Why am I bothering to go with the newest and latest version?" you may ask. Sometimes I am asking it myself. I do not go with every "decimal" update, I might skip...
  16. Notation Software, MIDI, etc
    I'm looking for a software that basically has the same features as GarageBand for Mac, except that its for PC. Are there any such softwares?
