SWAM STRING SECTIONS
Pushing Through the Barriers of Sampling
SWAM String Sections is a truly innovative suite of four plug-ins, corresponding to the orchestra sections Violins, Violas, Cellos, and Double Basses, and based on Audio Modeling’s exclusive modeling technology. They are capable of emulating orchestras of various sizes, from small chamber ensembles to large symphonic groups. SWAM technology provides instant access to natural orchestral articulations, and sections can be placed together in a virtual room to achieve authentic, blended acoustics. With real-time control over staccato, legato, expression, and more, it represents a revolution in orchestral arrangement and composition, allowing for seamless transitions between different styles and articulations without disrupting the creative flow.
ROOM MODELING TECHNOLOGY
The room plays a crucial role in crafting that natural blend of different instruments, so Audio Modeling created the Room Simulator!
You can precisely position each section of your orchestra within the virtual room, creating a spatial experience that mirrors reality.
You have the power to choose the room’s size and absorption materials, allowing you to transition seamlessly from a cozy, highly absorbent recording studio to the grandeur of a spacious church.
Fine-tune your sound by adjusting the microphone’s proximity, either drawing it closer for intimacy or pushing it farther for a richer reverb effect. With SWAM’s Room Simulator, you hold the keys to orchestral perfection, unlocking a world of creative possibilities.
You can control the Room Simulator from any SWAM String Sections plugin in your setup. Whether you’re adjusting section placement, room size, or absorption materials, it’s all at your fingertips within any SWAM String Sections plugin, thanks to the unique seamless communication between individual plugin tracks!
THE NEXT LEVEL PRODUCTION WORKFLOW
- Realistic: Individual sections plugins provide individual control of each section’s expressivity, by automating expression, vibrato, bow pressure, and bow position, tremolo, etc.
- Efficient: The creative workflow is not broken by searching for the articulation or the right sample.
- Fast: With physical modeling technology you can recreate any musical style, controlling velocity, expression, playing staccato/legato, and experimenting with the sound you really need just by playing.
- Smart: The room simulator communicates between the multiple tracks on the DAW, so you have a centralized UI to position all sections at once instead of opening each plugin to tweak room settings.

Required space after installation: 120 MB per single plugin format + 290 MB for shared resources and assets.
RAM occupancy: about 350 MB per instrument instance.
The realism and expressiveness of the SWAM instrument requires a computer with at least a 2.5 GHz 4-core CPU for running a single plugin instance. Less powerful systems may also prove satisfactory, but may require larger buffer sizes, involving higher latencies.
