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 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 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.
Hi, everyone! This is a work by Gaspar Cassadó, a Catalan cellist and composer of the early 20th century. I've played it on the SWAM cello. It's very difficult to play on the real cello, but I think very suitable to play inhumanly and mechanically with SWAM, because it is a dance music for a non-human creature, the Green Devil. The fastest tempo is about 190 bpm during the ac
I'm working out the intricacies of using the TEControl breath controller, You Rock MIDI guitar and the SWAM saxophones. Like any instrument it takes time to get musical results—still striving towards that end. Note that the performances are un-edited.

Hello all, so here is an experiment/composition of mine using the various SWAM solo strings and a few SWAM woodwinds in an "Old School" sounding production.
I wanted to see how close I could come to making these beautiful instruments sound as if they were from the 1940-50 Noir film era. So I ran them through various amp simulators and came up with this overall sound that I think captures t
