Dvs Saxophone.

Designed for expressive playing, careful attention was payed to the way velocity and pitch bend effect the filters, also the reverb has been configured to compliment the saxophone sound.

Kinda sounds like a sax until you reach higher notes. The lack of ADSR for me makes this unusable for the most part :( which is a shame as it does have potential.

I'm gonna give it a 5/5 because it definitely sounds better than one the saxes here rated higher - and this one does sound pretty real with it's tremolo and 'expressive' function definitely. Great sounding plug, thank you!

I have used this in Cubase when it was 32 bit. However, since it became 64 bit this plugin no longer works so you’ll need to do some jiggery pokery with jbridge. Don’t ask me how this works I gave up. I have been playing with Sax on the beach which hosts various samplers. I have Halion 6 so I can just drag the .fxb or .fxp file into it and create my own VSTi. I am not going to publish because the instructions are available it’s the set and I don’t own the sounds. What is good is the set contains sopranorino sax!

I dont understand why this plugin isnt on the top of the list with best ranking... this little devil is expressive as hell and if you dont want to play long notes and Coltraneish transitions, it sounds real either with its own reverb or with slight touch of another verby plugins. Great for surf staccato solos, funky lines and much more !

I've used DVS Saxophone for about a month (submitted a small contribution). I was very impressed. Then all of the sudden it started sounding more like a piano than a sax. I did everything I could think of including a re-install. Still sounds like a piano. Any suggestions on how I can get the sax back? Thanks. ... doug

Ableton Live 9 can't seem to recognize this VST, and I really want to use it, but all it can recognize is massive. No other free VST's I have gotten can be identified in my directory. I'm not exactly sure if this is 32 bit or 64 bit, but I tried to bridge it to 64 bit which is what I need, but it didn't work in ableton. If anyone can help solve this problem for me I will appreciate it greatly.
William Jul 21 2015

It's 32 bit, if you're running 64 bit then that is more than likely the problem.

It's a synth sound first off, so It's not gonna sound 100% real unless you wanna drop a few grand on Hollywood Brass or something. A real musician can use it to their advantage. It's free, what did you expect? That being said, This VST is extremely valuable. It doesn't sound nearly as fake as quite a few of the other ones I have tried, and frankly I think they should charge a bit for it because It is phenomenal. It is simple to use, sounds pretty good, (not quite real, but once again, what did you really expect?) and it works fine in my program.

Hats off to the dear folk at Dream Vortex, the next step from this means gigabytes of samples, advanced programming and a huge-ass price tag. It's particularly good with the most basic MIDI controllers that don't have proper expression controls, the built-in automation gets the job done. Also loads fine under Wine (Linux) contrary to even some professional level VSTis.

DVS Saxophone is the BEST sounding sax I have in my kit of VSTi's. Streight out of the box or runing it through VST EFX it's really nice. top note only goes to C# above middle C. Other than that you really can't beat it for its size....BRAVO DVS!
