DAW: Cubase 9.5 Win64
Controller: ROLI Seaboard RISE 49
Windows

Pre-purchase question:

What “player” or synth do the SWAM instruments require? I can’t find anything about this on the website.

In other words, when creating a track in Cubase, what do I invoke to reach the SWAM engine? ( I am hoping the answer will be ‘The SWAM engine will appear in Cubase&r

It is a string quintet by SWAM-S.

I usually play with LeapMotion Geco, but this time I drew a CC graph with pen tablet to examine the practice and tone color. Expression mode is "Gesture: Bowing".

In addition to deceleration and pressure decay in the return of the bow, I tried to reflect the tendency of human movement and resonance chang

I am considering to buy a Seaboard Rise 49 to use with my SWAM Flute and Cello. I found that the new versions already do have A Seaboard default parameter setting.

I suppose I need to set the channel to "All" in SWAM or the voice channel count to 1 in the Seaboard to allow for the SWAM engine to decently detect legato via overlapping notes. Correct ?

OTOH I found a video with two SWAM C

I don't know where to add it, maybe one special topic for Feature Requests.

What about some SWAM player for all SWAM instruments? Something like Vienna Ensemble, where user can stack all (purchased) swam instruments in one place and build own ensemble setup.
For example I want write composition for string quarteto, I load in swam player 2x violins, 1x viola and 1x Cello, load my pressets

Hi everybody!

I became betatester some months ago, so I decided to create a tutorial for TOTAL BEGINNERS in those IT fields, like I used to be when I started..

That's the first and the sixth episodes, so you can have a little idea..

Been having problems with audio drop out, glitches or crackle. I used LatencyMon to analyse and found some offending drivers. Made those adjustments and got all my drivers under 1ms. Most are under .5ms. The highest is NVIDDMKM.sys which is .598. LatencyMon reports my system is capable of handling real time audio however, when I play my Synthophone using Audio Modelings Saxophones i still get dr

I want to be sure I do this in the right order and properly. I'm upgrading my PC to Win 10 with a new appropriate MB, memory etc. I think the steps are 1. De-authorize The Saxophones 2. Build the PC. 3. install Win 10 4. re-install The Saxophones. Is this how it works?

I had a bit of fun with this Video a couple of years ago, but I think there's an interesting point to share and discuss about it:

Looking to the hands, the bow, the strings, while editing my sequence, was incredibly useful to take decisions about the articulations and parameters, like vibrato rate and intensity, bow pressure and attack, por

Using SWAM-S strings for creating ensambles is possible of course, but at the actual version, still a bit challenging.

I did a little experiment:

The key for success is a big care for the players sound shaping: every possible synchronizazion must be avoided of course, and a continuous tuning and vibrato (low intensity and pretty differen

Those of you coming here from the Sample Modeling forums may have already heard these. But I thought this might be of interest to new (or potential) Audio Modeling customers.

All the following tracks were created using SWAM Tenor & Alto Saxophones, and/or the SWAM Clarinet. (The trumpet is from Sample Modeling .)

It's me Kyle Judkins, some of you might know me from other forums, and I've definitely got some tricks I would like to share, but I think it's essential that we come to a basic formula for how tricks are shared in order to make sure nobody's time is wasted, and people know right away if they have the tools of course if the sound it can achieve is one that they are looking for

Hi all, just wanted to say to the AM team, love the new web site, and a BIG thank you for all the hard work you all do to create the best instruments on the market!

So I thought I'd share (if it's OK with the Admin) a new piece which uses the SWAM Bari sax. This piece is from a forth coming album of mine that will have a Pink Floyd vibe to it. It is called "Gettin' Me Down" and uses the SWA
