SWAM-B stands for Synchronous Waves Acoustic Modeling – Brass.
Differently from SWAM-W, sound in SWAM-B virtual instruments is generated by pure Physical Modeling, so there are no samples at all.
We have performed an in-depth study of the Physical Modeling techniques, especially the Digital Waveguides Synthesis by Prof. Julius O. Smith. By using this technique, adding new elements, and performing an unceasing fine-tuning, we have built the best modeled Brass virtual instruments on the market. SWAM-B allows the real-time control of mute distance, vibrato, shake, portamento, including the possibility to select valve or slide in any instrument, add pedal notes (with an addition valve) and control the valve or slide transitions.
