“Audio Modeling continues the great Italian tradition of revolutionary advances in instrument making; in the manner of Cristofori (the inventor of the Piano) and Amati (the creator of the modern violin). SWAM instruments are by far the best timbral, dynamic representation of an actual instrument I’ve ever encountered. I’ve never used anything so real or expressive.
Ensembles made up of SWAM instruments are a quantum leap over any currently available sample library, allowing virtual ensembles that are indistinguishable from reality”
