The SWAM Flute is a perfect example to illustrate how the concept of "articulation" can be overcome. The physics of the instrument demonstrates that the main expressive elements of the instrument (like expression, vibrato and flutter tongue) depend on a single factor: the dynamics of the breath.
START PLAYING FOR REAL
SWAM Flutes, like all 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. Our technology allows you to fully control the expression of any virtual acoustic instrument: start playing for real.
FOR STAGE AND STUDIO PRODUCTION
Choose SWAM Flutes 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
- Flutter Tongue
- Breath Noise
- Key Noise
- Dynamic Pitch
- Main Volume
- Pan Pot
- Reverb Mix
DIGITALLY HANDCRAFTED INSTRUMENTS
Tired of Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries of flutes and the limitations of traditional samplers? SWAM Flutes is the solution. Developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology (Synchronous Waves Acoustic Modeling) through a combination of innovative performance techniques and concepts of physical and behavioral modeling with the multi-vector/phase-synchronous sampling technique.
Real-time controllable via MIDI controllers, SWAM Flutes requires only the smallest footprint to create the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance: it's a set of the most expressive and realistic virtual flutes on the market.

Required space after installation: 100 MB for two pluginsRAM occupancy: about 50 MB for each instrument instance
The realism and expressiveness of the SWAM instrument require 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.
