Streetly Electronics Mellotron Tape Library

Fairlight Saxy

Another Fairlight CMI library sound, this time of a saxophone, as heard on Rhythm of the Heat from 'Peter Gabriel 4' where it takes the main melody line.

As with all Fairlight samples there is no multi-sampling capability so transposition becomes part of the character of the sound. This is our funny way of sounding that they all sound crap, not unlike saying that with a Yamaha DX7 the nopise made as you gouge out your own eardrums with a blunt oyster knife becomes a part of the sound. Except that we like the Fairlight.
