Things are evolving each day at Audio Modeling, so we are not able to provide dates "written in the stone". This is currently our - very rough - roadmap:
February 26th, 2020: release of SWAM Solo Brass for Desktop
March 2020: partnership with ILIO
July 2020 update v1.5.0 of SWAM Solo Brass for Desktop
August 2020 update v1.5.1 of SWAM Solo Brass for Desktop

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.
In version 2 we had an "Env Attack Speed" parameter and it could be MIDI mapped. Now we have "Attack Ramp Speed" and it can't be MIDI mapped? That seems a pretty significant loss of functionality when triggering using velocity. Please enable MIDI mapping of this parameter.
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.
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
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
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
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. https://ww
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.
This thread is dedicated to Wind Controller users. We want to listen from you, please let us know what you think can be really improved in our products to match perfectly your expectations and the right control when using a Wind Controller.
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
According to the on-line manual: "By default, the Key Switches are positioned starting from C1 (MIDI note 24)where C3 = Middle C (MIDI note 60)" .... "C# = Fall Down. Perform an immediate Fall Down starting from the currently playing note (where the pitch and volume drop rapidly): ○ Velocity controls Fall Down speed. ● D = Doit. Perform an immediate Doit starting f
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)?
I don't have hardware, and even if I did, I would like to be able
