SWAM String Sections is finally here! 1024 576 Audio Modeling

At Audio Modeling, we’re thrilled to introduce a groundbreaking addition to our family of products – the SWAM String Sections. This innovative suite comprises four plugins, dedicated to orchestrating the Violins, Violas, Cellos, and Double Basses sections. Based on Audio Modeling’s exclusive modeling technology, these plugins are set to revolutionize the realm of orchestral arrangement and composition.


Unleashing the Power of SWAM Technology

The SWAM String Sections harness the power of SWAM technology, enabling composers, musicians, and producers to achieve exceptional orchestral performances with unprecedented ease and realism. These plugins emulate orchestras of varying sizes, from intimate chamber ensembles to grand symphonic groups.


Expressiveness at Your Fingertips

One of the most remarkable aspects of the SWAM String Sections is the precise, real-time control it offers over a wide range of articulations. From staccato and legato to expressive nuances like vibrato, bow pressure, and bow position, these plugins provide individual control for each section. This level of expressiveness represents a true evolution in orchestral composition, ensuring that your music can seamlessly transition between different styles and articulations without interrupting your creative flow.


Crafting the Perfect Acoustic Space

In the world of orchestration, the room is just as crucial as the instruments themselves. Audio Modeling understands this fundamental element and has introduced the Room Simulator within the SWAM String Sections suite. This unique feature allows you to position each section within a virtual room, creating a spatial experience that closely mirrors reality.

But the Room Simulator doesn’t stop at basic positioning. You have the power to adjust the room’s size and choose from various absorption materials. The result is a flawless transition, whether you’re seeking the intimate acoustics of a recording studio or the grandeur of a spacious church. Fine-tune your sound further by adjusting the microphone’s proximity, offering you the ultimate in orchestral perfection. With the Room Simulator, the potential for creative expression is limitless.

Seamless Integration for Effortless Control

The SWAM String Sections go one step further in streamlining your production workflow. Each section plugin provides individual control over expressivity. You can automate various parameters such as expression, vibrato, and more. No more searching for the right articulation or sample; the SWAM technology lets you recreate any musical style and experiment with the precise sound you desire, all by playing.


In addition to this, the SWAM String Sections bring orchestral flexibility to a new level. As you add more sections to your composition, they intelligently communicate, placing themselves in your room of choice without any phasing issues. It’s the ideal solution for building custom orchestras, whether you’re crafting intimate ensembles or grand symphonies.


A Smaller Footprint with Outstanding Performance

While the SWAM String Sections deliver unmatched expressive capabilities, they do so with a small footprint. The required space after installation is just 120 MB per single plugin format, along with 290 MB for shared resources and assets. RAM occupancy hovers around 350 MB per instrument instance, ensuring that these plugins are efficient and accessible to a wide range of users.


Orchestrate with Precision

Perhaps the most exciting feature is the ability to program each monophonic section individually in your DAW. This level of precision ensures that your compositions capture the authenticity of a live orchestra without the “organ” effect that often plagues chordal playing.


Communication and Placement

As you build your custom orchestra and add more sections, they intelligently communicate, placing themselves in your virtual room of choice. You can count on the anti-phasing settings to deliver exceptional sound quality and authentic room response.


Musical Freedom

The SWAM String Sections open new horizons for composers and musicians by providing unparalleled orchestral sound-shaping possibilities. Whether you’re working on film scores, classical compositions, or contemporary music, these plugins empower you to take your compositions to the next level.
