This collection includes five expressive and realistic virtual Trumpets: Flugelhorn, Flugelhorn (Eb), Trumpet (Bb), Trumpet (C), Piccolo Trumpet.
SWAM Trumpets are realized entirely with Physical Modeling, included the Mutes!
This technology allows all articulations typical of this instrument to be reproduced in real time, by acting on its main physical elements such as pipe length, breath pressure, and lip tension. Independent control of the valves allows both Half-Valve transitions and ones typically triggered with overtones in glissando’s or broad vibrato’s.
All the following parameters are controllable in real-time (through MIDI) or by a Digital Audio Workstation:
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.
Developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology, SWAM Trumpets 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: 75 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.
