“Audio Modeling SWAM engine is a beast, the response and control over the various breath parameters is unmatchable. Whether it’s resonance, reed behavior, various mute types, and even tongue activity, I can dive into it for hours crafting the exact sound and response I’m looking for.
I also love blending it together with synth sounds, and thanks to the power of the warm sound of the SWAM engine it truly gives an “analog boost” – this is truly outstanding! I have been using SWAM instruments on various theatre and movie productions, on-stage jazz performances, and recordings combining them with other synth sounds on my EWI.
A fascinating, eternal journey – I am truly hooked!”
