I was getting this error. Once the file is extracted, put everything that is extracted (folder and .dlll file) into your plugin folder

So I got 32 and 64 VST version all next to each other in the same folder with some other plugins. It wasn't popping up when I clicked "find installed plug ins" so I went and searched for it, but it was nowhere to be found. All my other plugins were there though. How do I fix this?

I needed a tool to write a few sax lines to give indications to a sax player and this has helped me tremendously, thank you!

I'm getting a "Cannot find any instruments." error message when I have this open in my DAW (Reaper). The DAW is pointing to the correct folder location. The two files in the folder are "Iowa Alto Sax - 64.dll" and "Iowa Alto Sax - 64.mse". Any advice how I can get the instrument to show in the DAW?

You must install the 32 bit version, then it goes (in my case)

I´m using Samplitude pro5 for recording. Everytime I start playback the volume of the altosax is very low. Although the button is in the correct position (70% up). When I use the instruments delivered with samplitude the bahvior is different, the instruments volume is always the same unless I do a change.

Maybe it's because of midi voulme recorded in your track, are you using midifiles ?

this one is probably the best in all the IOWA products, but on high range it always out of tune, if you use this, a tuner need

Not fully realistic but as good as it gets for a free plug in.

Hey BigCat! loving this sax VST, amazing like all your other VSTS. many thanks again for sharing it. I think I may have found a 'bug' - when i play the lowest "e" note, it plays fine at high velocity, but at a very low velocity, it sounds like the "e" one octave higher. At first I thought it was to give a 'breath' effect, but the notes either side do not give that effect at low velocity. Thanks again, love your VSTs :)
