    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!

    FOR STAGE AND STUDIO PRODUCTION

    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.

    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
    • 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

    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. Our 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.

    DIGITALLY HANDCRAFTED INSTRUMENTS

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

    FORMATS

    AU, VST, VST3, AAX 64bit

    Mac OSX

    10.7 – 10.14 (Mojave)

    WINDOWS

    Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10

    INSTALL SIZE

    Required space after installation: 15 MB for two pluginsRAM occupancy: about 15 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.
