Hi guys. I've owned the SWAM w/winds for years but only recently have I been using the flutes quite intensively. I'm finding that there seems to be a higher breath threshold for starting/ending notes on the SWAM flutes compared to the SWAM strings. This might also be the case for the other SWAM w/winds but I haven't spent as much time with them recently.
For example: I can easily start or taper off a note to - or from - almost nothing on any of the SWAM stringed instruments with beautifully controlled, minimal breath but on the flutes, it seems like there's a higher breath threshold that makes it virtually impossible to do this i.e. the note will just stop way before my breath pressure is down to almost nothing and this sounds incredibly artificial. It's definitely not my WX5 setup because the SWAM strings respond perfectly, as do all of my numerous other synths. I've spent the past 2 decades working professionally with my WX5 and know it inside out...my WX5 is calibrated to perfection but there's definitely something not quite right about the breath scaling on the SWAM flutes. It seems virtually impossible to get a note down to almost nothing, which simply doesn't happen with any of my other instruments.
Has anyone else noticed this and/or does anyone have some suggestions for SWAM settings that might help with the breath scaling/response?
