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
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.
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
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.
At the time of the brass beta test, I made a request for "individual overtone control function". (https://community.audiomodeling.com/index.php?u=0topic/100/swam-solo-brass-beta-testing/1#post-543) This time, I set EQs that synchronize with overtones and tried how they affect the timbre.
Hi! I'd like to suggest adding support for using jammy guitar with the solo strings instruments. As far as I understand, this midi controller supports outputting each string to a separate midi channel. Coming from a guitar background, I'd love to be able to select strings on the fly instead of specifying a position beforehand, so if you could add some type of functionality in the SWAM v3 strings
When using a breath controller I'd like to have the bow direction switch between breaths. So when the controller value drops to zero we'd get a bow change. I realize there is a keyswitch for bow direction change but would like the option to use "through zero" as an articulation trigger.
Having a bit of free time over the holidays I thought I'd put SWAM strings through their paces on some material from the wonderful Danish String Quartet's arrangements of folk tunes.
This one is called "Sterrand's Rand" and it's a lot of fun. It shows off a few of the outstanding SWAM performance features, including continuous control of dynamics, various bowing styles, pizzicato, harmonics,
Here's another SWAM string quartet piece from the Danish String Quartet's collection of folk tune arrangements. "Old Reinlender" highlights fast aggressive bowing, big dynamic changes, and wide glissandos.
The basic tracks are played in with an EWI, but there is extensive post-production editing in order to tweak the many parameters of the SWAM string model.
