Mr. Sax T. setting for Tenor Bb song

Post by mnj1004 » Wed Mar 09, 2016 2:50 pm

Hi,
I am a newbie here for both Kontakt and EWI USB.

I have an EWI USB and and installed Kontakt 4 Player & The Sax Brothers on my MacBook Pro.

When I found this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41xbv2GJVq8 ), I tried to play my EWI USB with default setting but I found that 'something was wrong'.

The sound I heard from my EWI USB did not harmonize at all with the background music of the video.

Can you please shed a light on me to have my EWI make 'correct' sound?

Thank you in advance.

Namjin

Those notes were written for a B-flat instrument, typically a sax or a trumpet. The EWI is by default a C instrument, but you can transpose it down to B-flat with this tool:

Use the tool when your sequencer is closed, else it can't access the EWI.
