You can use a Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Baritone mouthpiece. The Travel Sax works with a standard Alto mouthpiece, but we have designed 3 adaptors (Soprano, Tenor and Baritone) so you can use any mouthpiece you like.
Not yet. Probably in future Travel Sax versions…
Right now three octaves. A Travel Sax has a normal saxophone range so from Bb3 to F#6.
Yes, we have programmed some of the main altissimo fingerings. We think that it’s a pretty useful tool to have. It’s great to be able to peacefully learn and practice the high register with your Travel Sax.
Nevertheless, be aware that some of the usual fingerings used in this range are not programed because of the Travel Sax key’s restricitons (the “X” key for instance is united to the “P” key).
Travel Sax has a pressure sensor that detects the blowing intensity and instantly determines the correct volume level.
It’s due to the air flow. The internal circuit that guides the air though the Travel Sax is much smaller compared to a standard saxophone preventing the reed vibrating and producing sound.
Right now we have Alto, Tenor and Soprano saxophone tones in our App. We are working on other saxophone sounds too. The cool thing is that if you want the sound of other instruments you can use other apps such as Garage Band, Ableton Live and many more.
Really low (8-10ms) if you use Bluetooth connection, and 0ms if you use USB connection to your computer.
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.
Please open the Travel Sax app and tap the “Effects” button. Then modify the Buffer Size to Low, Mid or High until you get a good quality sound.
