SWAM DOUBLE REEDS
Four digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments – the Oboe, the English Horn, the Bassoon and the Contrabassoon – developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology result in the most realistic, real-time controllable, and expressive virtual double reeds on the market.
In any instrument based on SWAM technology, it is possible to control the main expressive parameters continuously and in real time, such as dynamics and vibrato.
An important role, especially in Double Reeds, is also covered by staccato / legato articulation management.

Supported formats and OS
Audio Units, VST, AAX 64bit
macOS 10.7 (Lion) – 11.4 (Big Sur)*
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
*Silicon supported through Rosetta 2
Required space after installation: 245 MB for four plugins
RAM occupancy: about 80 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.

FOR STAGE AND STUDIO PRODUCTION
Whether you are a producer, composer or live performer, start playing SWAM Double Reeds by layering it in a sections with no artifacts and simply selecting different timbres for each instance.
PLAY WITH REAL TIME CONTROLS
All the following parameters are controllable in real-time (through MIDI) or by a Digital Audio Workstation:
Expression (Dynamic), Note transitions (Staccato / Legato / Portamento) with no KeySwitches, Legato Mode (Glissando vs Expressive), Vibrato Depth, Vibrato Rate, Portamento Time, Harmonic Structure, Sub-Harmonics, Growl, Flutter Tongue, Formant, Breath Noise, Key Noise, Dynamic Pitch, OverBlow, Microtuning, Main Volume, Pan Pot, Reverb Mix.
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.
