SAXMAN is the first application for the iPhone simulating a real saxophone.
By blowing into the microphone while pressing on the key touches you can easily play the saxophone on your iPhone or iPod Touch (2nd generation users should notice that Apple's special microphone hardware is necessary).
iPod Touch (1st generation) users can unfortunately not make use of the microphone feature but you can still play the game by selecting the "Mic Off" mode which will let you play by just pressing the keys.
Since our virtual saxophone is very similar to a real saxophone in theway you use your fingers, it will be a very good practice for real saxophone players.
For key combinations please refer to the picture below.
Moreover a piano player and a sequencer is included.
The sequencer will show you in an easy way how you are supposed to press and a piano will help you in the background.
At the moment we only support 13 songs .
Furthermore you can choose between 2 different saxophones (Alto and Tenor) and also a simulation of the AKAI EWI (Wind Synthesizer) is implemented.
* How to play
Hold down the keys (refer to the picture below) for the note you want to play and blow in the microphone that is located in the lower right corner or if you are using an external microphone blow in that.
iPod Touch (1st generation) can't make use of the microphone so sound will come by just pressing the keys.
(Notice that you must hold down a "correct" key combination or no sound will come out).
You change the octave by tilt up or down. In the beginning it might be a bit hard to control your fingers so we recommend you to practice using the background music.
