Sample Modeling SWAM Soprano Sax v2.5.3 64bit WiN | 53 Mb
All Samplemodeling Virtual Instruments of the Brass family have been developed on the Kontakt™ platform produced by Native Instruments. The Trumpet and Trombone, as well as the French Horn and Tuba, exploit the Harmonic Alignment Technology, developed by Giorgio Tommasini, for real time building of articulations.
The Sax Brothers use an alternative approach, the Synchronous Wave Triggering conceived by Stefano Lucato. This latter technique is less suited to the Kontakt engine, due to some technical limitations, including jitter and fixed interpolation. That's why Stefano, working with Lele Parravicini and Luigi Felici, elected to develop an independent platform, built on the specifications of his technology.
Development of the SWAM engine (Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling) required about two years of hard work. But it was worth the effort. While sample-based, it exploits advanced technical solutions derived from physical modeling. Thus, a new line of products, based on the SWAM engine, was added to the "classic" Samplemodeling Instruments. This resulted in speeding up the development of new instruments, as requested by all our customers wishing to have at hand an entire Samplemodeling orchestra.
