Five digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments – Bass Tuba, Tuba (Eb), Euphonium, French Horn (F), French Horn (Bb) – developed by Audio Modeling using SWAM Technology result in the most realistic, real-time controllable, and expressive virtual Horns and Tubas on the market.
SWAM Horns and Tubas are realized with Physical Modeling.
This technology allows all articulations typical of this instrument to be reproduced in real time, by acting on its main physical elements such as pipe length, breath pressure, and lip tension.
In French Horns, the sound can be modulated using a hand inside the bell. Moreover, one can perform pedal notes by enabling the additional-valve option.
This feature is now available for all of the SWAM Brass Family.
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, Vibrato Depth (from regular to Shake), Vibrato Rate, Portamento Time, Growl, Flutter Tongue, Breath Noise, Dirtiness, Sustain, Mute Control (wah/hand), Attack Noise on pianissimo, Attack Tongue, Reactivity, Mutes, Pipe Gesture, Half Valve Amount, Valves and Slide Position, Dynamic Pitch, Microtuning, Main Volume, Pan Pot, Reverb Mix, and many more.
