“From the moment I first played a SWAM instrument, I knew this was the future of virtual instruments. I’ve never experienced anything so nimble, flexible, creative, and expressive. The realism is astounding, and there’s literally no limit as to how far this concept can be taken. And it sure doesn’t hurt that most of the instruments have a footprint of about 15 MB. Can’t wait to see where Audio Modeling take it next!”
