Four digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments – the Oboe, the English Horn, the Bassoon and the Contrabassoon – developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology result in the most realistic, real-time controllable, and expressive virtual double reeds on the market.

START PLAYING FOR REAL

SWAM Double Reeds can be used for Classical, Pop, and any other musical style. While a sample library repeats a pre-recorded sound, SWAM instruments play for real. In addition, since they are based on a combination of innovative performance techniques and concepts of physical and behavioral modeling, SWAM Double Reeds don’t include any samples and are extremely lightweight, weighing only a few Megabytes.

FOR STAGE AND STUDIO PRODUCTION

Choose SWAM Double Reeds 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.

PLAY WITH REAL TIME CONTROLS

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
  • Legato Mode (Glissando vs Expressive)
  • Vibrato Depth
  • Vibrato Rate
  • Portamento Time
  • Harmonic Structure
  • Sub-Harmonics
  • Growl
  • Flutter Tongue
  • Formant
  • Breath Noise
  • Key Noise
  • Dynamic Pitch
  • OverBlow
  • Microtuning
  • Main Volume
  • Pan Pot
  • Reverb Mix

DIGITALLY HANDCRAFTED INSTRUMENTS

No need for Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries: the typical limitations of traditional samplers simply do not exist with SWAM Technology.SWAM Double Reeds is not a mere recording of notes via sample libraries, but rather a set of real virtual instruments based on their traditional counterparts, and it allows you to fully control the expression of a virtual acoustic instrument via MIDI controllers

The smallest footprint guarantees the same natural reactions real instruments would have and the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.

 

FORMATS

AU, VST, VST3, AAX 64bit

Mac OSX

10.7 – 10.15 (Catalina)

WINDOWS

Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10

INSTALL SIZE

Required space after installation: 245 MB for two pluginsRAM occupancy: about 80 MB for each instrument instance

CPU LOAD

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.
