Here is what the latest samplemodeling SWAM virtual Tenor Sax can sound like:

Imagine what someone with serious technical skills would sound like.
It's a single take live (with mistakes) played on the EWI-USB, selling for around $217 various places(w mistakes) but shows how much the technology has improved over the initial "kazoo" sounds that earlier hardware and other software synths produced. The geniuses at samplemodeling have left all competition from Roland, Yamaha, Kurtzweill etc. far behind.
The EWI or other wind controller is great for people who have lowered lung capacity due to health problems, or anyone who want's to cheat and play Trumpet, F. Horn, Tuba, with the just basic sax or flute fingering.
Of course you do give up a good deal of expressiveness, over the real instruments, but few good things in life come without some compromises.

You can also hear French Horn and trumpet if you look around my main page.
( I have not uploaded any samplemodeling Clarinet, yet, what you hear Don, who is a musician's musician, play is a real Clarinet recorded live with a microphone)

Is sampling ever going to be able to reach the expresiveness of a sax? And oh that clicking sound of the keys…
Real sax is the sax for me
