SOLO HORNS & TUBAS
Five digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments – Bass Tuba, Tuba (Eb), Euphonium, French Horn (F), French Horn (Bb) – developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology result in the most realistic, real-time controllable, and expressive virtual Horns and Tubas on the market.
SWAM Horns and Tubas are realized with Physical Modeling.
This technology allows all articulations typical of this instrument to be reproduced in real time, by acting on its main physical elements such as pipe length, breath pressure, and lip tension.
In French Horns, the sound can be modulated using a hand inside the bell. Moreover, one can perform pedal notes by enabling the additional-valve option.
This feature is now available for all of the SWAM Brass Family.
Supported formats and OS
Standalone, Audio Units, VST, VST3, AAX 64bit
NKS (Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol)
macOS 10.9 (Mavericks) – 10.15 (Catalina)
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
Required space after installation: 75 MB
RAM occupancy: about 15 MB for each instrument instance
The realism and expressiveness of the SWAM instrument requires a computer with at least a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU for running a single plugin instance. Less powerful systems may also prove satisfactory, but may require larger buffer sizes, involving higher latencies.

START PLAYING FOR REAL
SWAM Engine digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments are never a simple recording of notes via sample libraries, but rather a set of real virtual instruments based on their traditional counterparts, and they allow you to control the expression of a virtual acoustic instrument: while a sample library repeats a pre-recorded sound, SWAM instruments play for real.
DIGITALLY HANDCRAFTED INSTRUMENTS
Developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology, SWAM Horns and Tubas are real-time controllable via a MIDI controller and do not require any Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries, but only the smallest footprint to create the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.
