Embertone launches first iOS virtual instrument, the Sensual Saxophone

The app is compatible with all major iOS-based DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations), working with Appleā€™s Audio Unit Extensions technology.

Created in close collaboration with Vietnam-based Blue Mangoo, makers of the innovative iFretless apps, Embertone has unveiled Sensual Saxophone.

Its first foray into the world of iOS, Embertone’s new app is a sassy virtual saxophone.

Loaded with racy puns, because, ya know, saxophones are sexy and all that, the new app features a ‘Sex knob’, yes, really.

In the words on Embertone: “Sometimes you just want to put it in your mouth and blow. But when a reed gets worn or arms become weak with exhaustion sensual nature can outlast even the swankiest saxophone! So what’s a swinging lover supposed to do?

“Do not fear. For Sensual Saxophone is here. The world’s first iOS instrument to feature true legato samples, no less, and a truly desirable digital solution to sax saturation. Sensual Saxophone should certainly catch the eye (and ear) of all who see (and hear) it.

“It is the only virtual saxophone to feature an eye-poppingly enormous Sex knob — bang in the centre of its glitzy GUI (Graphical User Interface) that’s as easy to use as it is easy on the eye. Edge that Sex knob downwards and the sax sounds dry as a bone, but touch the knob and listen to that sound grow into something much more sexy! Switching ‘Sensuality’ to ‘on’ ensures that the user always has the right accompaniment for evenings echoing with pleasure!”

Phew.

In terms of the technical aspects of the instrument, controls including Reverb, Vibrato, Delay, and switchable Legato, Sustain, and Staccato playing styles using the onscreen lockable keyboard.

Furthermore, Sensual Saxophone is compatible with all major iOS-based DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations), working with Apple’s Audio Unit Extensions technology – that brings the Audio Units system-level full plug-in architecture model (that was previously only available to third-party developers like Embertone in OS X) to iOS – as well as Inter-App Audio and Audiobus for full communication with the outside musical world.

Embertone’s Sensual Saxophone is available now for iPad (2, mini, and above) and iPhone/iPod Touch (5 and above) and has a price tag of $4.99.

Sensual Saxophone can be purchased and directly downloaded from the App Store here https://appsto.re/us/ScNTgb.i
