Delivery was instant, which has not been my experience with other vendors when buying SWAM, so great job KvR. SWAM instruments are just so playable and intuitive, it really sets them apart. I'm a big fan of physical modeling done right, and that's exactly what SWAM is. The player nuances are so much more natural than samples, so while they might not quite reach the sonic beauty of the best samples, played by the best players, their organic nature makes up for any slight deficiency. They are versatile to play a multitude of different types of spaces, different styles of playing. Not a fan of the electric patches (I hate electric violins in general), but the other three models sound great, and make it easy to put together a varied section that plays as an ensemble.Read Review
The absolute best solo instrument Vsts when it comes to both sound and playability. No sampled library can come close to the realism and expressivity.downside is a relatively steep learning curve when it comes to controlling your instrument in real time but the effort is more than worth it!
using traditional mod+pitchwheel is rather cumbersome but i found it really easy to play with an MPE controller or a combination of classical keyboard and a Touche.
This is the most realistic and versatile trumpet on the market. Every trumpet sound from Miles, to Satchmo, to orchestra trumpets, to Dizzy, etc, they are all covered. I will never need to purchase another trumpet patch again. Plus this works perfectly with my EWI USB. It also works with a number of other wind MIDI controllers as well as keyboard MIDI controllers.
If one is looking for trumpet sounds this is a no brainer IMHO.Read Review
