SWAM Saxophones from Audio Modeling is comprised of the four instruments of the standard saxophone quartet: The Soprano Sax, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax and Baritone Sax.
Ultra-realistic and expressive virtual saxophones - Developed by Audio Modeling using the SWAM Technology, SWAM Saxophones is the result of innovative performance techniques, concepts of physical and behavioral modeling along with the multi-vector/phase-synchronous sampling technique. The SWAM Saxophones collection is the most realistic, real-time controllable, expressive set of virtual saxophones on the market, and only need a large hard drive to create the perfect organic consistency of a real saxophone. This is due to the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.
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 create sound in real-time, offering the most realistic and expressive saxophone sound without a massive library of samples.
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.
Choose SWAM Saxophones 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.
All the following parameters are controllable in real-time (through MIDI) or by a Digital Audio Workstation:
AU, VST, VST3, AAX 64bit
10.7 – 10.15 (Catalina)
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
Required space after installation: 276 MB for four plugins
RAM occupancy: about 80 MB for each instrument instance
The realism and expressiveness of SWAM instruments as a VST, AU, AAX, VST3 or standalone 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.
