Solo Strings
Folk tune arrangement for SWAM String quartet

Having a bit of free time over the holidays I thought I'd put SWAM strings through their paces on some material from the wonderful Danish String Quartet's arrangements of folk tunes.

This one is called "Sterrand's Rand" and it's a lot of fun. It shows off a few of the outstanding SWAM performance features, including continuous control of dynamics, various bowing styles, pizzicato, harmonics, and the wide variety of attacks and note-shaping that would be impossible with samples.

@brunodegazio the link is not working, I suppose because of the space before "3.mp4". Use the "chain" icon to set link properly

Thanks for pointing that out. It looked and tested OK when first posting, go figure. Anyway I've revised it using the link tool as you suggest.

Here is another SWAM performance of the wonderful Danish quartet arrangements.

These is a very quiet piece, showing off SWAM's harmonics, flautando, and general responsiveness at pp dynamic level.

I'm still amazed at the range of string performance qualities that one can get from these instruments. For years I tried to play the Yamaha VL1 physical-modelling strings but they were much more limited. SWAM-S has taken physical-modelling to the next level of musicality.

Bravo, AudioModeling! Can't wait for the brass!

Great !
I suppose left / right isbBow movement, up/down is bow position and pen pressure is bow pressure.
But what is Vibrato depth and speed ?
