I would like to be able to automate the "Master Tune" paramter from within my playback software, using System Exclusive if possible.

I notice that the manual gives some details of the SysEx implementation for changing the transposition and tuning. Have AudioModelling made public any other portions of the SysEx?

thanks

A constant hertz (cycles per second) detuning feature would be very handy for SWAM strings when used in an ensemble.

This would solve a problem when using the current constant cents master tuning to detune multiple instruments in an ensemble. For example, a detuning of 15 cents can sound very good in the lower register of an instrument, but in the high register it will sound too extreme.

Anytime I get new software I always try to give the developers my first-time user experience. In this case, which is rare, I never used the software at all previous to purchase and bought on the strength of youtube reviews alone.

So in somewhat of an order of occurance:

On the downloads & licenses page, a 'download all' button would be great. It took me about 4 minutes to fully downlo

Hi,

I’ve been contemplating this question lately and was wondering what the developers of SWAM instruments thought about it.

To me, physically modelled virtual instruments such as those by the SWAM and Sample Modeling teams bring a whole new level of expression and aliveness to the world of virtual instruments. With the aid of good MIDI controllers, the ease of playability makes it

Hi,

I just bought the complete package and I am blown away by the SWAM instruments, particularly the Brass ones: I can't wait for the others to share the same UI and playability.

I am mostly interested, however, not in perfect emulations of traditional playing of these instruments, but in searching for extended techniques that are particular to SWAM. That is, not in emulating overblowing,

Hi!
I have the woodwind pack (sax, flute, clarinet, doublereed)

I noticed that the samples sound slightly better at 88.2 or 96kHz setting, vs the standard 44.1k or 48kHz setting.
Anything higher 176.4kHz or 192kHz doesn't seem to improve the sound by anything I can notice.

What are the original input sample rates?
I have everything set at 96kHz for now.

Hi!

Would it be possible to add a button that remembers your credentials for activating the SWAM v3 instruments? Currently I'm being logged out every once in a while, and if I open a DAW session without checking if I'm logged in and start playing, the session will crash. If we could have an auto-login on startup (or some other solution that doesn't need us to verify our license multiple time

Hi has anyone had this issue?
I can't go past the login screen in the new SWAM brass app.
Everything else works well, the register button, forgot my password button, they all work. However, the login button does not.

Hi everyone,

I've been having a tough time trying to figure out which controller to get.

I already have a seaboard block which I enjoy a lot and works well for the most part, but I do find that it is difficult to extract the tonal control like bow pressure and position while performing the part into the DAW.

I though I'd get the community vote on what the best choices are and what the

I have just purchased the Audio Modeling bundle and have successfully installed and used the Trumpet, Trombone etc. in Logic 10.4.8 on a Mac, but I can't see the Strings, Woodwinds and Saxophones. What am i doing incorrectly? I don't know how and where to call up the SWAM engine. Can anyone help?

Any views on https://www.samplemodeling.com/en/tutorials_strings.php?

Just listening to the demos and wonder if anyone has made a comparison yet?

I'm tempted to get this to make even bigger orchestras as they share with SWAM what I feel is the biggest benefit over "normal" libraries like LASS; Realtime input and the Modelling approach instead of static and massively disk intensive librari

The dream of leaving the expensive and fragile computer in the studio and having a hardware unit running my favourite plugins at a reasonable price is getting closer.

This is a Linux based SOC based technology

I'm wondering how CPU intensive plugins would perform here but having used Linux in servers for a couple of decades as a sysadmin I know th
