hi friends,

i just get triton extreme last year, so i tried to develop some real alto-sax using my exb-moss board. all the sounds are coming from triton though.  

so i made today a recording of that jazz standard tune: "blue bossa"  

!!!this is only a test!!!


you know? i must say that triton extreme is the best paradise i've ever seen. hope you enjoy the demo! this is the 1st time nor put some real jazz stuff here after a long time!

hey nor i've got a triton extreme, i love it!  do you think its worth buying the exb-moss board, i like your demo by the way, its great, shame the sax isn't real, it does sound synthy at the top end but the soloing is great!  nice one!  let me know about the moss.  


jazz jasper,

yes it worth to get the exb-moss i play with my extreme here in morocco, so most sounds i made with it are exotic for oriental music, but i just tried to develop that alto sax, i knwo it stil needs some tweaking. i am so glad that you enjoyed the demo.  

you know, since 2004 did not post/visited this wonderfull forum....i was so really busy doing lot music here.
nice job nor!

thanks for sharing.

the big tricks to making a synthesizer sound like a specific instrument are to stay within the range of the instrument and only use licks that are "native" to the instrument.

keep 'em coming ...
hi jeef!

i'm so delighted you enjoy the demo, yes you're right i really missed the range oopss! but thanks for remembring me that. sure native licks are quite speciall tool to add into our vocabulary whatever is our musical background.
welcome back nor- nice piano sound and comping. i really enjoyed it.  

best wishes,
thanks paul! glad that you loved nor's blue bossa.
