There are few instruments as expressive as the tenor saxophone and, in Saxophone 2, we have captured that magic so that you can add it to your own musical productions. As with other titles in our Instrument series for Elastik, Saxophone 2 provides you with a huge collection of inspiring melodic phrases allowing you to create authentic lead and melody lines with a real sense of performance.
The library contains 1.6 GB of sample data spread across over 850 individual licks and phrases. With exquisite performances from Nico Finke – a top professional sax player based in Germany and with an extensive live and recording credit list – the tenor sax as been beautifully recorded. All the material is presented dry without EQ or compression to capture the full expressive nature, dynamics and intimate sound of the instrument and to allow you to add exactly the right processing required for your musical context.
Super Cool Sax Lines
The phrases were originally performed at tempos ranging from 70 to 90bpm and would form perfect material for use in chillout, lounge, jazz, easy listening, downbeat, deephouse, ambient music styles or even double time genres such as Drumstep, Liquid Drum & Bass or Garage. However, with Elastiks excellent time-stretching capabilities, other tempos are also easily supported.
Adds Character to any Composition
For any music producer looking to add the classy and expressive sound of smoothly played sax, Saxophone 2 will deliver every time.
The whole library comes as Elastik soundbank. Thanks to its clear structure the Elastik player is the ideal tool for fast and modern music production. Each loop in Saxophone 2 contains information on tempo and key, so you can quickly find the right sample for your production. The „élastique pro V3“-algorithm by zplane offers time stretching and pitch shifting in high quality, which makes it possible to adjust each sound even more to your own projects.
The keyword-based browser allows you to search through all installed Elastik libraries and freely combine them with each other. Creative and intuitive features such as formant, resample, reverse and multi-mode filter allow you to edit every loop even further.
Please note that the backing tracks being used in the demo song are not part of the library. They only serve as an example for a possible application of the loops.

The loops sounds very good. I am still not a fan of Elastik, however the quality of the saxophone recordings are amazing. Great for deep house or jazz.
Fantastisch, wie sich die Sounds in meine Produktionen einbetten. Warte schon auf Saxophone3.
