An incredibly realistic, real-time controllable, and expressive virtual viola. SWAM-S technology guarantees the same natural reactions as a real instrument. With SWAM instruments you can compose and arrange your orchestra pieces or concertos.

SWAM Viola is an incredibly realistic, real-time controllable, expressive virtual viola. Developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM technology, it guarantees the same natural reactions as a real instrument.

SWAM Viola is instrument modeled with algorithms, recreating the behavior of the real acoustic instrument. There are no pre-recorded samples—that’s why there are endless expressive sound combinations you can achieve.

For example, assign the bow pressure to a knob of any MIDI controller, and create your own expressive music!


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 Viola only weighs a few Megabytes. As a producer, composer or live performer, you can use SWAM Viola 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 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. Audio Modeling's technology allows you to fully control the expression of any virtual acoustic instrument. You won’t need any Giga-sized pre-recorded library: the smallest footprint is enough to guarantee the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.


These instruments exploit our proprietary SWAM-S engine, a powerful Physical Modeling technology derived from the Digital Waveguides approach.


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.
