Saxophone is a performance musical instrument for your iPhone. It plays, sounds, and operates like a real sax.
Realistic controls * Real fingerings * Real samples * Real chromatic control over more than two octaves * a flexible sound engine * a visual synthesizer * wireless MIDI control! * record your performances, and listen in the browser/email/embed them!
Saxophone's controls are based upon the principles of a real sax. You can adjust this control to include breath, touch, and even tilt control.
It's a great way to learn how a sax works, and it's expressive enough to be a real instrument for proficient musicians.
The iPhone only allows 5 touches at a time -- but there's an easy rule of thumb: if you're using your right fingers, lift up your left; and vice versa. See the manual included for all the details!
Saxophone includes a unique sound engine that uses sound samples of real instruments -- including a soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophone.
Saxophone also features the Visual Synth. Create your own sounds with our additive synthesizer, adding reverb, filters, and sculpting the overtones to explore the soundscape.
Control your music studio with Saxophone -- full MIDI control is included via the musicofx midi tool [PC *and* Mac], free with Saxophone! Control GarageBand, Reason, or Logic wirelessly -- a new performance MIDI controller!
Finally, you can record and share your Saxophone performances. Upload, download, vote -- you can even listen to them in your browser, embed them in your blog, or send them to Mom in an email.

Improved tuning; updated Saxophone with Clarinet's improved sound sample synthesis engine; tweaked sounds a bit.
I want a refund, I'm learning how to play the saxophone and I downloaded this app thinking it was totally fun. But when playing on musicfoxes "saxophone" you cannot get down notes. It's super hard to play, and I honestly think we all should get a refund for this abomination. I also showed this to my music teacher and she tried it, although she thought that this app was a great idea, this one was a piece a crap. You can only play 5notes at a time!!! What the $&@"!!! This app shouldve atleast been free. I honestly recomend that you DONT but this app as a regular apple iPhone user. This is my honest review on the saxophone app.
I was worried that I was wasting my dollar on this app based on the other reviews, but it is very functional. While it's not perfect I enjoy the challenge of reading through some of my music. After about ten minutes with it, the octave break gets much easier
It's supposed to be a novelty app. It's not supposed to replace your sax. You'd be stupid If that's what you thought, but it's really just for us saxophone nerds. I have it because it's just another way of being a sax nerd.
