my SWAM Violin Demo 8 (postscript 16/02/2019)

Hello. I composed the 8th demo of SWAM Violin.Please listen!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xA7q5vp3S8Q


I used 2 violin tracks, and divided them according to range.
Brown notes:Cremona S1 track
Blue notes:Venezia S1 track

I am trying to make a realistic sound, and it will be a difficult challenge. But I think that I don't yet understand SWAM's potential.
Feedback is welcome!

*My SWAM Violin Demos are here.

Great !

It would be nice to know what the controllers are, that are visible in the video.

It also would be great how each of them has been generated.

Thank you for your reply!
I didn't use MIDI controllers at all, only a mouse. All MIDI data, even tempo data was edited by a mouse.
My favorite instrument is the computer mousesmile

The resolution of the display was too small to display the SWAM instrument.The parameters that are not shown on the screen are as follows.

Beautiful composition, Mizuki. It's amazing you did all the automation by hand! Who are some composers that have influenced you?

As far as feedback goes, the only thing I would suggest is having vibrato come in a tad later (and maybe having the rate increase later, or making the vibrato rate threshold slightly lower). Also I guess the expression for each note seems to fade or drop kind of fast for many of the shorter notes along with strong vibrato which sounds a bit unnatural to my ears, but in all reality this could be a matter of playing style for a real violinist, so that's just stylistic choice. Bravo. smile

Thank you for listening!
The influenced composers are Ryuichi Sakamoto, Nobuo Uematsu and many other classical composers.

Thank you for your feedback too! The expression of vibrato is always a problem. SWAM violin's non-vibrato sounds like a synthesizer, but the real violin performance sounds very musical. So, I have added more vibrato to avoid inorganic sounds like synthesizers. I think now that it was better to reduce a bit more.
Realistic expression of violin is very difficult, but I think it is worth a try.

At the moment I use a TEC BBC v2 and control the vibrato depth by aftertouch and the vibrato speed by moving my head left (slower) and right (faster). Looks rather funny, but seems to work rather nicely.

I am planning to get a Roli Seaboard Rise 49 that can do vibrato by wiggling a finger similar to a real string instrument. Let's see if I can manage this decently.

It is interesting! I would like to research them.
Thank you for your information!

Sorry for the late reply. I can definitely hear Sakamoto's influence! I love his work, as well as Koji Kondo, Yasunori Mitsuda, Jun Ishikawa & Hirokazu Ando, Masashi Hamauzu, etc. (I could go on and on.)

I know what you mean with trying to make the samples sound realistic in addition to the performance being humanized. Have you tried layering the midi data with that of another sample library? You might have some interesting results if you experiment with aspects such as certain frequencies of a sample that has a better sustain sound (but I recognize this can be more difficult with solo instruments - it's much easier to layer ensembles). The nice thing is that the SWAM instruments have so many parameters to control instrument noises.

Thank you! I like those composers too.
It is a good idea. I would like to try it if I get a good sampling insrtument.smile
