Frequently Asked Questions

1) What mouthpiece size works with the Travel Sax?

You can use a Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Baritone mouthpice. We have designed an adaptor so you can use any mouthpice you prefer.

2) Can the mouthpiece control pitch or vibrato?

Not yet. Maybe in the Travel Sax 2.0.

3) How many octaves can the Travel Sax play?

Right now three octaves. A Travel Sax has a normal saxophone range so from Bb3 to F#6.

4) Does it recognize alternate fingerings or altissimo fingerings?

We are working on it. We can not guarantee 100% but we thing it would be pretty useful so we are pushing our engineering team to make it work!

5) How do I control volume?

Travel Sax has a pressure sensor that detects the blowing intensity to adapt the volume level.

6) If I blow through a regular mouthpiece with a read, how can it be possible I don't produce sound from the reed?

You need to put the reed slightly down so it doesn't vibrate to avoid making sound, easy.

7) Does it come with any voices? Which saxophones or other instrument voices come with it?

Right now we have Alto, Tenor and Soprano saxophone in our App. We are working on other saxophone sounds. The cool thing is that if you want other instruments sounds you can use other apps such as garadge band and many more.

8) Is this a MIDI interface?

Yes endeed!

9) What is the latency?

Really low (5ms) if you use Bluetooth connection, and 0 if you use USB connection.

10) What sound if any banks are compatible with this instrument?

It is a MIDI instrument, so all MIDI libraries work.

11) Can I professionally perform with the Travel Sax as I would with a standard saxophone or wind controller? If not, what are its limitations?

The idea is to launch Travel Sax as a tool for practicing, but our goal is to get to the PRO-Level. Ideally you should be able to perform live without any problems. We are working really hard to get to that point so that we can say 100% confident, yes. We are improving right now the sensors so professional players can feel that a the travel Sax is also a performance tool.
