I have a track that I need a raw alto sax sound. I rendered it in midi with Kontakt, chose raw alto sax, then converted it to audio. I added all the distortion I could with the Distortion setting in Power Tracks, and it is not raw enough.
Any advice?
Thanks!
Bernie

Maybe a different sample/sound source to begin with (?)
Or asking a sax player to come over and actually play/record it (?)

Not sure what your boundaries are here, or what 'raw sax' means..
Do you have Realtracks at your disposal? Or are you looking for a sample set.
I have lots of saxes available via synths and such but having a live player in front of a mic seems to work best here.

I'd say that if you want to alter the timbre, nothing like a filter-EQ combination to add honk to a horn.

The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode! #TBT

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
