“Audio Modeling’s instruments are such inspiring tools. They really allow you to be a soloist in a way that traditional samples can’t. For me as a saxophonist I love using them with a wind controller or a keyboard and breath control combination. It’s the first time I’ve really felt comfortable using solo winds and strings and not having to bury them under a pile of effects and other instruments.”
