VST Kenny G
Alto PRO 2022

We worked hard to develop the best version for you, now it's in your hands! The virtual instrument with the timbre of one of the world's best saxophonists. With this saxophone library, we guarantee that you will have the closest timbre of Kenny G sax.The library was recorded with the same setup used by him. this product contains 1 instruments in NKI format: Alto Saxophone. File size: 163MB

Alto Saxophone
When recording Kontakt library, it was used the same setup of him, ie a Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone with metal mouthpiece Beechler Diamond S5S and Hemke reed Hemke #2 1/2. The result of these features is the actual timbre of him. The library was exclusively created and setup by musicians who work with MIDI Keyboard or Wind Controller. that can thus be performed with enough realism as if you were actually playing with an alto saxophone Selmer Mark VI.
Here are all the new features of VST Kenny G PRO 2022

Breath Controller Mode, Microtuning, EQ and others.

The Graphical Interface
This is how the instrument looks upon loading. A warning message appears, reminding  you that: An Expression controller (CC11, CC7 or CC2) is absolutely necessary for proper  functioning of the instrument. Upon receiving the appropriate CC (from your keyboard or other midi sources, such as a  windcontroller or sequencer), the warning disappears, and the instrument is fully  functional. The grey button in the lower right corner opens a drop down menu. You may choose among several options:
Velocity Curve Mapping
It is well known that midi keyboards have different and uneven velocity response,  and this may heavily influence the performance of a virtual instrument. To obviate  this problem, the instrument includes automatic detection of any velocity  inhomogeneities or non-linearity emitted by the keyboard, and provides automatic  remapping to any desired curve..
Controller Knobs
All the controllers needed for proper functioning of the instrument are mapped to virtual knobs in three GUI panels, which can be activated by a drop down menu. The function of each controller is indicated by the associated label. The virtual knobs permit to monitor the incoming midi data, but can also be used to directly control the instrument. This allows users of keyboards without physical MIDI controllers or knobs, to explore the expressive capabilities of VST Kenny G Saxophones Pro. The three “Controllers” GUIs, show each MIDI-controlled function, the associated CC number and its current value. Each knob is bidirectionally mapped to its CC. This means that you may set each CC by moving the associated knob. Conversely, any incoming MIDI CC will be mirrored by the corresponding knob, and its current value will be shown on the display panel
CC Remapping
Three different CC-remapping panels allow remapping of all controllers to any CC.
Wind controller Mode
This option opens the Wind Controller panel. By clicking on “Use Windcontroller” button, you will activate the universal Windcontroller mode. The selected mode will appear on the main view GUI. WC mode automatically maps the Dynamics to CC2, and  gives complete (100%) control of Portamento Time, the duration of portamento is determined by the velocity of the overlapped  note.  A pitch sensitivity knob is provided to compensate differences among different brands. For example, the Pitchbend output of the Yamaha WC is smaller, and cannot easily cover the standard twosemitone range. This can be fixed by setting Pitch Sensitivity to a higher (200%) value. The default setting (100%) should be generally adequate for Akai devices (EWI) WC mode is deactivated by clicking again on the “Use Windcontroller” (White) button. Dynamics control will be automatically remapped to CC11.
Breath controller Mode
This option opens the Breathcontrol panel By clicking on “Use Breathcontroller” button you will activate the breath controller mode. The selected mode will appear on the main view GUI. BC mode automatically maps the Dynamics to CC2. In addition, it’s now the BC which triggers note-on & off when overcoming or going below a certain threshold. As in the real instrument, the pressed key only determines the note which will be played. The note-on velocity is related to the steepness of the initial CC2 curve, so that a quickly rising CC2 will trigger a stronger attack. This does not apply to legato notes, where legato/portamento duration is determined, as usual, by the velocity of the overlapped notes. BC mode is deactivated by clicking again on the “Use Breathcontroller” (yellow) button. Dynamics control will be automatically remapped to CC11.
Portamento Time
This option opens the Portamento Time panel. In Keyboard (default) mode, the duration of portamento is determined by the velocity of the overlapped note. While this represents a very convenient approach to portamento control, there might be cases where linking portamento time to a separate controller (such as CC5) would be preferable. By setting the right knob to 100%, the duration of portamento could be linked to any physical controller mapped to CC5. A mixed-mode behaviour is also possible, partially linking the duration of portamento to both velocity and CC5, allowing even greater flexibility and expressiveness. In this example, portamento time is determined 30% by the velocity of the overlapped note, and 70% by CC5
This is the most convenient way of transposing the  incoming midi flow in order to cope with the mapping  of the instrument. For example, the Tuba is mapped  from C0 to F3. The Keyswitches are consequently  mapped to C-2 – C-1. Even if you are using a sevenoctave keyboard, transposing the midi flow two octaves  down is the only way to make this instrument playable. Note: When transposing, always use the Transpose knob described above, or the transpose function of your MIDI source. Do not use “MIDI Transpose” function of the Kontakt software (Instrument Options), since it does not transpose the key switches and limits the instrument range
This option opens the Microtuning panel. This is an entirely new feature, coping with the requirements of musicians using non-temperate scales. Our approach to microtuning yields maximal flexibility, allowing user-defined scales, where the extent of detuning (range +60/-60 cents) can be precisely set for each note by means of a sliding bar. The scale can be saved and recalled as a preset. The reference note, and the overall % amount of detuning can be fit to each preset by acting on the "Key" button and the "Amount" knob, respectively.
Press a blue key and then a red key to generate an effect.


Kontakt 5.8 or later

This VST requires the full retail version of Kontakt 5.8 or later (Kontakt Player is not supported).

Operating systems

Operational Systems: Windows (XP, Vista,7, 8, 10) and Mac (OSX 10.5 or later).

Keyboard or Windcontroller

A five-octave midi keyboard, mappable from C-2 to C5, with pitchwheel, modwheel, and an expression pedal or breath controller, constitutes the minimum requirements for real time playing.


Set up to work with breath controllers (TEControl, MRT audio, Yamaha BC3) wind controllers (AKAI EWI USB, EWI 4000s, EWI 5000, EWI SOLO, Roland Aerophone, WX-Series of Yamaha) and MIDI Keyboard controllers.
