I've got the SWAM Violin. I want to play notes with some variation. I don't have a keyboard to do this. Too many complications that won't allow me to, so I have to stick to a compact design. I also can't play instruments full stop because of cognitive issues.
I use FL Studio, I managed to get the VST to work by changing expression. But I've encountered a new issue where I can't change the vi
According to the on-line manual: "By default, the Key Switches are positioned starting from C1 (MIDI note 24)where C3 = Middle C (MIDI note 60)" .... "C# = Fall Down. Perform an immediate Fall Down starting from the currently playing note (where the pitch and volume drop rapidly): ○ Velocity controls Fall Down speed. ● D = Doit. Perform an immediate Doit starting f
I’m a new user to Swam Strings. I use Midi Guitar 2 and it was suggested to me to try the Roli Seaboard preset. When I click load, the folder that opens is empty except for a few that I have saved. I also searched my hard drive for any “.swam” files with none found(other than mine). I’m on Windows 10. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi @admin, you've done a pretty good job with SWAM Brass...these instruments are quite playable. However, there's still a minimum "Note-On value" issue that affects wind controller players like me i.e. most wind controllers don't create a Note-On event until a value of approx. 7 or 8 but because SWAM instruments respond to Note-On events all the way down to 0, wind controller players experience
Hi all, I'm enjoying the awesome sound of SWAM Brass and Strings (hopefully woodwinds soon).
I believe the answer to the following question is NO but I have to check because this is a make it or break it issue basically....
Am I able to automate the "Pitch Bend" parameter of SWAM Brass in my DAW (FL Studio)?
I don't have hardware, and even if I did, I would like to be able
I find that I am having trouble with fast passages on the brass instruments, particularly triplets on the same note. If I want to play “Williams Tell Overture” on the French horn, this is required, but I find the instrument does keep up with the speed of my fingers.
I am using a seaboard. Does anyone have advice on how to achieve this? Is this a limitation of using the seaboard
I was talking to an experienced synth user about the wonderful things you are doing at AudioModeling, and then he asked if virtual instrument creators like you can also come up with a solution to overcome distance-related latency so that musicians in multiple locations can play together and collaborate in realtime. I thought I’d relay that question to you. Are you working on th
I have been trying to install SWAM Instruments on Apple MacBook with M1 (Apple Silicon) Chip running Big Sur. I can't seem to make it work. Is there any update or timeline (PS: FYI I did get Aaron Venture instruments to work ;-)
Please advise, I would really like to use SWAM. David
I’ve been contemplating this question lately and was wondering what the developers of SWAM instruments thought about it.
To me, physically modelled virtual instruments such as those by the SWAM and Sample Modeling teams bring a whole new level of expression and aliveness to the world of virtual instruments. With the aid of good MIDI controllers, the ease of playability makes it
A constant hertz (cycles per second) detuning feature would be very handy for SWAM strings when used in an ensemble.
This would solve a problem when using the current constant cents master tuning to detune multiple instruments in an ensemble. For example, a detuning of 15 cents can sound very good in the lower register of an instrument, but in the high register it will sound too extreme.
At the time of the brass beta test, I made a request for "individual overtone control function". (https://community.audiomodeling.com/index.php?u=0topic/100/swam-solo-brass-beta-testing/1#post-543) This time, I set EQs that synchronize with overtones and tried how they affect the timbre.
Anytime I get new software I always try to give the developers my first-time user experience. In this case, which is rare, I never used the software at all previous to purchase and bought on the strength of youtube reviews alone.
So in somewhat of an order of occurance:
On the downloads & licenses page, a 'download all' button would be great. It took me about 4 minutes to fully downlo
Hallo! Thanks for your amazing apps! I have a one question. Can the Camelot Pro receive a midi clock from an external equipment (midi sequencer, Ableton Live e.c.)? I would like to sync up my synth staff and playback/click-in-ear player that the drummer uses on the stage during a live performance. Thank you!
I just bought the complete package and I am blown away by the SWAM instruments, particularly the Brass ones: I can't wait for the others to share the same UI and playability.
I am mostly interested, however, not in perfect emulations of traditional playing of these instruments, but in searching for extended techniques that are particular to SWAM. That is, not in emulating overblowing,

Hi! I have the woodwind pack (sax, flute, clarinet, doublereed)
I noticed that the samples sound slightly better at 88.2 or 96kHz setting, vs the standard 44.1k or 48kHz setting. Anything higher 176.4kHz or 192kHz doesn't seem to improve the sound by anything I can notice.
What are the original input sample rates? I have everything set at 96kHz for now.
