Small footprint!

Required space after installation: 245 MB
RAM occupancy: about 80 MB for each instrument instance

CPU load

The realism and expressiveness of the SWAM instrument requires a computer with at least a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU. Less powerful systems may also prove satisfactory, but may require larger buffer sizes, involving higher latencies.

START PLAYING FOR REAL

SWAM Double Reeds can be used for Classical, Pop, and any other musical style. While a sample library repeats a pre-recorded sound, SWAM instruments play for real. In addition, since they are based on a combination of innovative performance techniques and concepts of physical and behavioral modeling, SWAM Double Reeds don’t include any samples and are extremely lightweight, weighing only a few Megabytes.

DIGITALLY HANDCRAFTED INSTRUMENTS

No need for Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries: the typical limitations of traditional samplers simply do not exist with SWAM Technology.

SWAM Double Reeds is not a mere recording of notes via sample libraries, but rather a set of real virtual instruments based on their traditional counterparts, and it allows you to fully control the expression of a virtual acoustic instrument via MIDI controllers

The smallest footprint guarantees the same natural reactions real instruments would have and the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.
