SWAM Viola - Solo Strings

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

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

Additional Features in Version 3

  • 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

  • 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-S: Synchronous Waves Acoustic Modeling - Strings

Differently from SWAM-W, sound in SWAM-S virtual instruments is generated by pure Physical Modeling, so there are no samples at all.

Audio Modeling have performed an in-depth study of the Physical Modeling techniques, especially the Digital Waveguides Synthesis by Prof. Julius O. Smith. By using this technique, adding elements, and performing an unceasing fine-tuning, Audio Modeling have built the best modeled Bowed Strings virtual instruments on the market. SWAM-S allows the real-time control of bow speed, bow pressure, bow position, vibrato, portamento, harmonics, tremolo, pizzicato, and many other parameters in a realistic way, almost indistinguishable from the real instrument.
