SWAM 3 technology is here, and it's a great way to create the timbre and expressivity of real instruments. It uses both physical and BEHAVIORAL modeling to create a realism that is truly astonishing! Check it in this 23 video course.
Sample libraries, traditionally, are the main source of sound when creating orchestral scores in a DAW. They are all vast collections of pre-recorded audio snapshots that are actuated and strung together using MIDI velocities and articulation sets. SWAM, however, is completely different.
You see, live musicians don't play in sampled snapshots. Quite the contrary, they are expressive, emotional artists who infuse every individual note, continuously, with musical feeling. That's where SWAM excels. It utilizes an advanced physical modeling technology that allows (and actually requires) the synthesist/producer/performer to continuously input their musical expression via MIDI control into the SWAM instruments to be ultimately rewarded with amazingly realistic and very human musical results achieving a verisimilitude that you just can't get from a sample library.
This SWAM Authorized course by Matt Vanacoro shows you everything you need to know to make the SWAM instruments come alive. He even brings in live musicians who show you actual playing techniques you need to know to make the most of these amazing, plugin instruments.
So join us in a journey of recreating orchestral realism in this SWAM 3 course by Matt Vanacoro.
helpful with just the right amount of detail not to overwhelm this new swam user

SWAM Audio Modeling Demystified is a very good tutorial. I can now handle SWAM v3 for saxophones. But integrating my wind controllers satisfactorily into SWAM v3 is largely a mystery to me. I use AKAI EWI USB, AKAI EWI SOLO and Roland Aerophone AE-10. As a follow-up, I wish there was a tutorial titled "MIDI Hardware Wind Controller Demystified". Best regards Robert.

Very Helpful! I just upgraded my full SWAM group to vs.3, and these tutorials cleared up all the confusion of the new interfaces!

This is the first course I have seen on the web about SWAM instruments. Even one who is interested about these instruments should review this course.
