SWAM (Synchronous Waves Acoustic Modeling) is a proprietary technology conceived by Stefano Lucato and further developed by Emanuele Parravicini. It combines concepts of Physical Modeling, Behavioral Modeling with the Multi-Vector/Phase-Synchronous Sampling technique.
The SWAM technology is best suited for multi-vector expressive acoustic instruments, i.e. instruments that require continuous input energy and control by the musician on several dimensions at the same time, especially for woodwinds, brass and bowed strings.
SWAM is currently declined in two different engines: SWAM-W and SWAM-S.
SWAM-W is most suitable for modeling Woodwinds, while SWAM-S is most suitable for modeling Bowed Strings.
