Hi all, I just finished a new piece ("Woe" ) the other night and since it has a (hopefully) nice Bari sax solo towards the end using Audio Modeling's Baritone sax and my TEC breath controller, I thought I'd post it here. Hope you like!
I am using Audio Modeling's "Solo Strings" and Sample Modeling's "The Trumpet". I recorded each String voice with a MIDI Breath Controller; TEControl (TEControl.se) connected to my Yamaha Montage 8 (through my iMac). I recorded the two piccolo trumpet voices using an Akai EWI USB MIDI Breath Controller, which is connected to my DAW on my iMac (Logic Pro X). The harpsichord sound is from EX
I used the SWAM violin, viola, flute, piccolo flute and bassoon in this short folk composition. Harp and percussion is from East West. Recording the music felt like performing on real instruments with all the controls and no sample limitations. Everything was performed with TEControl BBC2, the CC data was edited to correct errors.
I am in love with Swam Trumpet. So tweakable and expressive Thank you Audio Modeling! Looking forward for iOS versions of my beloved Swam instruments. I played it today in online jam session via ninjam using my AE10 windcontroller on and it was so much fun. Here is a snippet for you from the jam session: https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/0O6-OYnDlGhQnupT5Ik00JvLQ#Car
I have recorded a version of a piece composed by Gabriel Fauré ; Pavane opus 50. I was really inspired to try this after getting myself Audio Modeling's Solo strings. I record each voice with a MIDI Breath Controller (TEControl.se), connected to my keyboard (Yamaha Montage eight) and to my DAW Logic Pro X.
This is my original piece. I used different violin models experimentally according to the range and each string of the violin. I think that the realism of each violin model differs depending on the range. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pFkbbIQHF0

It is the practice of Bipolar mode. Bipolar mode is also useful for CC handwriting users (like me). It is not necessary to write CC64 like Expression mode because down-bow and up-bow can be clearly distinguished, and it is easier to edit than Bowing mode. It is a
I continue to explore using the SWAM saxophones as instruments for real-time improvisational playing. There are no edits to the MIDI data in the example here. Playing "Misty", a ballad, is a good workout for the TEControl breath controller.
