What you get are incredibly expressive and realistic virtual solo brass instruments that offer real-time control via MIDI controllers, that produce the same natural reactions as real brass instruments.
No multiple-gigabyte pre-recorded libraries are necessary: the smallest footprint guarantees the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique to every live performance. The SWAM Solo Brass Bundle is not a simple recording of notes via sample libraries but rather a set of real virtual instruments based on their traditional counterparts.
You can use the SWAM Solo Brass Bundle for Classical, Country, Pop music, and any other musical genre by layering it in sections, with no artifacts, and simply selecting different timbres for each instance.
All SWAM Engine digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments 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. Composers or a producers, SWAM is perfect for your workflow. You can adjust any sound or behavioral parameter to get exactly the response you want. For live performers, SWAM allows you to play a realistic virtual acoustic instrument in real-time.
Now updated to version 1.5!
The free update to version 1.5 introduced experience, usability and GUI improvements. Audio Modeling analyzed your feedback and support questions and simplified workflow and screen navigation to better help you find what you need, faster and easier. This keeps musicians focused on music creation and performance — every detail is important to deliver the best user experience.
In particular the 1.5 update introduced:
External Controller Mapping is very important, it is the link between the musician and the instrument's engine. The mapping header section has shortcuts to the MIDI input devices for quick selection plus a visible access button to the controller assignments list and quick reset feature. When using expressive controllers, finding the right mapping curve is essential to a beautiful performance. The MIDI remapping curve now has a real-time monitor to help you find the perfect balance between the instrument and your controller.
Resizable window to ensure the GUI looks great at any screen resolution.
New important control details:
Breath Ctrl Hi-Res Threshold - Allows the Breath-controller player to find the right threshold for the note triggered by your breath when using a breath controller that supports hi-resolution 14 bit MIDI messages.
Velocity Remapping - Find the right control of the attack, legato, threshold, and portamento speed.
