Expressive, realistic, real-time controllable via a MIDI controller: SWAM Cello is all of this, and so much more!

SWAM is a technology based on physical modeling, so it is possible to control the main mechanical variables in real time, like the bow position. 

Assign the bow position to a knob on any MIDI controller and hear the sound difference on SWAM Cello.


SWAM Technology overcomes the limitations that are typical of traditional samplers through a combination of innovative performance techniques and concepts of physical and behavioral modeling, with no samples required.

SWAM Cello only weighs a few Megabytes. As a producer, composer or live performer, you can use SWAM Cello for any musical genre by layering it in a sections with no artifacts and simply selecting different timbres for each instance.


All the following parameters are controllable in real-time (through MIDI) or by a Digital Audio Workstation:

  • Expression (Dynamic)
  • Note transitions (Staccato / Legato / Portamento) with no KeySwitches
  • Bow Pressure
  • Bow Position
  • Play Mode (Bowed, Pizzicato, Col Legno)
    Mono vs Double polyphony
  • Vibrato Depth
  • Vibrato Rate
  • Tremolo On/Off
  • Tremolo Speed
  • Harmonics
  • Portamento Time
  • Portamento split point (across strings)
  • Attack speed
  • Dynamic Transitions
  • Sordino On/Off
  • String preferred selection
  • Alternate Fingering
  • Bow Lift, Bow Start (Up / Down)
  • Sustain
  • Microtuning
  • Main Volume
  • Pan Pot
  • Reverb Mix

Now Updated to v3! 

  • Powerful MIDI Mapping feature that supports CC, Hi-Res CC, After-Touch NRPN, and remapping curves that allow more customization and sensitivity to any controller.
  • Realistic Legatos
  • New Pizzicato Model
  • General Sound improvement and behavior of bowed string
  • Timbral correction feature. You’ll be able to select up to two harmonics to adjust (for emphasis or reduction).
  • Standalone version, introduced VST3 plug-in format, and Native Instruments NKS compatibility.
  • Real-time bow Sensitivity Control (on bowing mode). This gives you the ability to transform the bow, from a short bow with soft strokes to a full-length bow with strong strokes.


SWAM Cello is never a simple recording of notes via sample libraries, but rather a real virtual instrument based on its traditional counterpart: unlike any sample library repeating a pre-recorded sound, SWAM Cello plays for real.

Control the expression of your virtual acoustic instruments, break the limitations of traditional samplers and benefit from the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance. No Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries are required, but only the smallest footprint.


Developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology, this digitally handcrafted acoustic instrument is based on a combination of innovative performance techniques and concepts of physical and behavioral modeling and does not contain any samples. The result? A flawless and extremely lightweight virtual Cello weighing only a few Megabytes!


AU, VST, VST3, AAX 64bit


10.7 – 10.15 (Catalina)


Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10


Required space after installation: 15 MB for two plugins
RAM occupancy: about 15 MB for each instrument instance


The realism and expressiveness of the SWAM instrument requires a computer with at least a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU for running a single plugin instance. Less powerful systems may also prove satisfactory, but may require larger buffer sizes, involving higher latencies.
