This collection is comprised of the four instruments of the standard saxophone quartet: The Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones.
START PLAYING FOR REAL
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.
Control the expression of your virtual acoustic instruments, break the limitations of traditional samplers and benefit from the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance. No Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries are required, but only the smallest footprint.
FOR STAGE AND STUDIO PRODUCTION
Choose SWAM Saxophones 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
Developed by Audio Modeling using the SWAM Technology, SWAM Saxophones is the result of a combination of innovative performance techniques and concepts of physical and behavioral modeling with the multi-vector/phase-synchronous sampling technique. This collection is the most realistic, real-time controllable, expressive set of virtual saxophones on the market, and only needs the smallest footprint to create the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.

Required space after installation: 276 MB for two pluginsRAM occupancy: about 80 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.
