Rovamatic is not your typical saxophone sample library, but what else would you expect from a Rarefaction release. Rovamatic is a library without the multi-samples, velocity switches, pitch and tempo references found in more traditional instrument libraries. What we have here is a four-horned sound library showcasing the compositional and improvisational prowess of the Rova Saxophone Quartet. Rova has been on the forefront of improvised music for more than 20 years and their collective experience has been documented and preserved within this medium, especially prepared for your immediate use, abuse, manipulation, integration and inspiration.
