Now updated to V3! SWAM Clarinets includes both an incredibly realistic virtual clarinet and bass clarinet. SWAM-W technology guarantees the same natural reactions as real instruments. With SWAM instruments you can compose and arrange your orchestral pieces or concertos utilizing powerful instruments with natural, fluid expression.
Discover an impressively expressive, realistic virtual clarinet and bass clarinet that ensure the same natural reactions as real instruments.
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. In SWAM Clarinets, it is possible to control in real time and continuously the main expressive parameters of the instrument with any MIDI controller.
For example: dynamic by an expression pedal, vibrato by a Modulation Wheel, glissandi by Note-on Velocity during legato articulations
START PLAYING FOR REAL
SWAM Engine digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments are never a simple recording of notes via sample libraries, but rather a set of real virtual instruments based on their traditional counterparts, and they allow you to control the expression of a virtual acoustic instrument: while a sample library repeats a pre-recorded sound, SWAM instruments play 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.
FOR STAGE AND STUDIO PRODUCTION
Choose SWAM Clarinets for composing, producing or performing any musical genre by layering it in a sections with no artifacts and simply selecting different timbres for each instance. From Jazz to Classical, from Country to Pop Music, just adjust any sound and behavioral parameter to get the exact response you want.
PLAY WITH REAL TIME CONTROLS
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
- Legato Mode (Glissando vs Expressive)
- Vibrato Depth
- Vibrato Rate
- Portamento Time
- Harmonic Structure
- Flutter Tongue
- Breath Noise
- Key Noise
- Dynamic Pitch
- Main Volume
- Pan Pot
- Reverb Mix
DIGITALLY HANDCRAFTED INSTRUMENTS
Developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology, SWAM Clarinets are real-time controllable via a MIDI controller and do not require any Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries, but only the smallest footprint to create the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.

AU, VST, VST3, AAX 64bit
10.7 – 10.15 (Catalina)
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
Required space after installation: 152 MB for two plugins
RAM occupancy: about 80 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.
