Alto KS?

Postby sus4 » Wed Nov 25, 2015 11:38 am

In the manual it says there is an Alto Sax KS, but working in Logic Pro X I don't see it. I want to go from Alto sax to Flute and back to Alto. I see KS on the brass instruments, but not on the saxes.
What am I missing?

Thanks

In JABB3?

For individual instruments it's right there in the 'combinations' selection.

For ensembles select e.g. '11 sax section' and you'll get a good selection.

Regards,
John.

Thanks John, I found it.
So what's the difference between the Combinations and regular KS instruments?

That's good.

A combination is a set of different instruments, in this case alto sax, flute, etc.
A regular KS is different articulations in just one instrument. So for a trumpet, as an example, switching between normal open playing and one of four different mutes.
With the upright bass arco it will switch between normal (sustain) and auto alternate (back and forth with the bow) and with tremolo.

With the GPO4 sample set, there can be up to 12 key switches (white as well as black notes) for all the variations in articulations for a solo violin.

Regards,
John.
