Before to start this review I have to say that I am not a keyboard player. I am a guitar player and every time that I play with a Keyboardist, I am impressed. They load a preset, they play and you can listen to a Brass section, a violin, a guitar or else,.. If I tried behind, you can listen to a Bontempi. (Bon tant pis, in French means: So, too bad…). Next time, I will load Sensual Sax into my iPad… and I am sure that I will be able to impress a man (or girl) with its keyboard too!
So, Sensual Sax plays a Saxophone sound, (better to use it as an alto Saxophone) which is already really cool for an App named like this… when you launched the App and start to play, it’s a dry sound of Saxophone. In the middle of the screen, a big knobs called LUV (named as Sex in the previous versions, I prefer the new name… note that it is still named as Sex in the Setting menu). Turn in to the right, and the magic starts… in fact, this big Knob will enable the Sensuality and set the parameters of the built in Reverb, Delay, and Vibrato to a higher or different position. It works as a preset interactive menu. You can also, set manually these parameters: Reverb room and amount, Vibrato depth, Delay time and amount. Another button allows to switch between Legato, Sustain and Staccato. You can display 2 keyboards, and use the modulation wheel for the keyboard on the top. All these parameters can be controlled via MIDI with another App or an external keyboard. In Summary, if you look for a huge guitar sound, it’s not this App, but if you look for a huge Sensual Saxophone sounding App… it's this one! a Killer App! A Must Have! (If you are a single man, Sensual Sax can be useful too... Peraphs that I will add it to the Utilities category too....)
