How to convert a GM or Megavoice track to play with Swam instruments?

Good Morning, it’s posible to convert a General midi track or a Yamaha arranger Megavoice track to playback correctly with SWAM Saxophones? Thank you in advance for the help

Hi @rbvgenos it depends on what you mean with "convert". Since SWAM are expressive instruments, if the GM track does not have any expression information, the only way to make the sax playing is to provide your own expression to the track.

So you need to import the track into a sequencer and record or edit an expression curve to give the right expressivity to the sax.

Best!

As Swam is all about articulation, I doubt that a track done for GM will provide any usable results with a SWAM instrument.
