Hi AudioModelling

Thank you for the wonderful SWAM instruments! I especially appreciate the enhanced high-frequency detail, the increased range of Bow Position which now gives a truly 'edgy' sul ponticello, the enhanced Harmonics mode, and the new Pizzicato tone control.

As I am adapting my production setup to work with Strings v3, I have encountered the following questions, which I thi
It seems that the microtonality options are limited to detuning the 12 conventionally named notes, with the same detuning in every octave. Many synths and most physical modeling instruments (AAS, Pianoteq etc) have support for specifying the tuning of all the MIDI note #s, and accept tuning file formats like Scala .scl files, thus supporting more than 12 notes per octave.

It would be great to
I'm having a crippling problem when recording both v2 and v3 Solo Strings in Logic Pro X using my Roli Seaboard Block. I've been unable to make any progress with my projects.

When I begin recording, suddenly I get stuttering, and in consistent attacks.

I was excited to upgrade to v3, and was hoping it woul

The question below is from an earlier post, but since I've had no response back about it, I thought I would bump it up again.

1. How to get pizzicato on multiple open strings (Cello)?

I have read the manual for every mention of "pizzicato", and it seems that the following settings wold be reasonable for the effect I want to achieve:

Can someone help me understand how to receive email notifications from this forum?

I have myself subscribed to my own posts as shown in the screenshot, and I've received replies, yet I never got an email. I have checked my junk folder.

I have just purchased "The Saxophones" and I also have the TEC BBC2 breath controller.

I'm looking forward to knowing about the best-recommended settings, tweaks, and tips in order to get the best possible performance and sounding experience when using the TEC BBC2 breath controller and playing the SWAM saxophones virtual instrument.

Hello all,

Can anyone help me get started with editing the articulations / expressions of midi events within the piano roll of Logic Pro X? How does one fine-tune glissandos, portamentos, vibratos, etc., of individual midi events and pairs of events??

I can secondary-click a midi event to access the articulation selection, but there are 255 nameless articulations in there, and I can't tel

I've been using Vivaldi to experiment with various techniques to improve the ensemble sound of solo strings. The results are in this playlist.

The main techniques are:

1.) Time spreading the Note-onsets.
For example, the 6 first violins are individually delayed anywhere from -50 milliseconds to +50 millise

First of all, congrats for the new interface which adds so many useful features to SWAM instruments and makes the UI experience much more convenient. I think it’s a big step up from the older interface and paves the way for even better instruments. I like the much more precise presets management, the MIDI management and the organization of all the parameters. The main page makes it also eas

Just some quick feedback:

I found that with v3 I had to eliminate the new pressure curve setting (flatten it) in order to get decent control using the Seaboard. The idea of the pressure curve seems really useful, but I'm hoping that the team will put out an update with better default settings. Again, this is probably specific to the Seaboard default settings—specific to the nature of th
Hi @admin
I was sure that at some stage, it was mentioned that SWAM v2 presets could be imported into SWAM v3....but I might have misunderstood or I'm totally incorrect. I've loaded SWAM v2 Solo Strings presets into v3 but none of my v2 MIDI mappings and parameter values are being imported, which is very frustrating.
Is this a bug or have I missed something? It doesn't make sense that a v

Can you help me understand the bow gestures? Specifically bipolar and bowing modes. The manual is going over my head. Maybe I'm more of an example type of guy.

Right now I have no idea how to:

Play a single, long sustained note, and
have total control of bow changes, like an irregular bowing style.
I have a feeling one of those modes is going to help me. Help?

This is the last demo I made for ver2.
I was actually going to compare it to ver3 based on this ver2 MIDI, but the expressions were more incompatible than I expected, so I gave up on the comparison.
I've just updated to ver3 and am excited about some of the new features. I'd like to release a demo with ver3 eventually.
Any feedback on this song would be greatly appreciated.

Hi guys. I've owned the SWAM w/winds for years but only recently have I been using the flutes quite intensively. I'm finding that there seems to be a higher breath threshold for starting/ending notes on the SWAM flutes compared to the SWAM strings. This might also be the case for the other SWAM w/winds but I haven't spent as much time with them recently.

For example: I can easily start o

Hello First time here.

Just bought both Swam instrument for
Geoshred and a couple of Swam Ipad apps
(Frenchhorn, trumpet, flugelhorn).

Mostly i use the swam-saxophone on geoshred, but it would be fantastic if Audio modelling would consider a stand alone / AU version of the saxophone , just like the swam-trumpet ipad app.

I've got the SWAM Violin. I want to play notes with some variation. I don't have a keyboard to do this. Too many complications that won't allow me to, so I have to stick to a compact design. I also can't play instruments full stop because of cognitive issues.

I use FL Studio, I managed to get the VST to work by changing expression. But I've encountered a new issue where I can't change the vi

I’m a new user to Swam Strings. I use Midi Guitar 2 and it was suggested to me to try the Roli Seaboard preset. When I click load, the folder that opens is empty except for a few that I have saved. I also searched my hard drive for any “.swam” files with none found(other than mine). I’m on Windows 10. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @admin, you've done a pretty good job with SWAM Brass...these instruments are quite playable. However, there's still a minimum "Note-On value" issue that affects wind controller players like me i.e. most wind controllers don't create a Note-On event until a value of approx. 7 or 8 but because SWAM instruments respond to Note-On events all the way down to 0, wind controller players experience

Hi all,
I'm enjoying the awesome sound of SWAM Brass and Strings (hopefully woodwinds soon).

I believe the answer to the following question is NO but I have to check because this is a make it or break it issue basically....
Am I able to automate the "Pitch Bend" parameter of SWAM Brass in my DAW (FL Studio)?
