Three sections same instrument different treatment/effect. Start; 1:10; 2:10. Would love to have comments/feedback about the use of these sounds for sax. Great track from Miconom (sorry about using it for an experiment). Sax is a 98 year old Buescher soprano in the key of C...go figure!

Graças Francisco. Estou feliz, se cada pessoa que ouve simplesmente sente alguma coisa com ele.

U got my thumb with the first sound. But even more I am deeply impressed by all these lovely themes and short melodic lines(e.g. 1:36 or 1:46, too many to count). From now on an alltime favorite on my playlist.

Thanks Marc, didn't expect that response! Will have to do more "mindless experiments". Just a flow without any preconceived ideas.

Given my penchant for effects take this w/ a pinch of salt..
I really like all 3 sounds, each for it's own reasons & i find them all highly useable..
The first 2 are more obviously a sax, the third is almost another instrument, all grabbed my full attention !
Your playing ? Mesmerising.. ;)

Mesmerizing? OK you're now my official tester for the cobra act.

I like what you've had to say as most just offered preference. Knowing that the third sound is potentially usable is good information. That third sound brings out what I think is inherently a more trumpet like sound in this instrument. Yes there is wahwah, but I hear trumpet, not sax.

Thanks Nuno, greatly appreciated.

Hi Wade i like all 3 sounds :) in this example I prefer the 1st, because it the best natural articulation, wich bring me in a very peacefull mood.
next for me 2 and 3. Would be great to mix FX just by playing. it is possible but (in my opinion) making music is getting more complicated. you need more equipment and have to thinkmore, because you have to be technician an musicion...
I do have lots of ideas for a long talk, but it is late in germany ... good night M

I greatly appreciate your point of view. A good topic, especially for players who are venturing into all the gizmos and gimmicks available. Does the technology become the point of interest or is it still just a tool?

We've probably all seen people who have keyboards that play everything in a zillion different ways for the "player" to add their 1 finger notes and think they are musicians.

I'm too old to become a tech head...but like the idea of some types of contouring the natural sound to use in different situations.

We'll have this talk some day...but not today.

As a complete piece, I think it sounds fantastic. The transition from straight up sound to the other effects is very well done :) Not too much and still quite tame ... Go on Wade, step out a little further. A bit more musical crazy ;)

We have dissension opinion! Good on you Rob! You want crazy? I'll show you crazy! (a line from a movie?). I'm sure that the occasion will arise, but for now I've learned a lot from this exercise. Thanks to you and others for your help and opinions.

Hey Wade, at 1:10 well seasoned, at 2:10 a little too much seasoning, but it's matter of taste.

Got it. Thanks Balfo. I trust yours and others ears. The object is communication...we need to speak a language that entices so that we are "giving" to those who listen. OK, there's also times where we can be self-indulgent. It important to get honest feedback, especially from people you respect and trust.
