While I do have and love playing SWAM instruments, I think its unfair of Stefano to (near the start of the video) claim that sample based instruments e.g. need to have vibrato sampled with the sound. I also have sample based (in fact Kontakt based) instruments by Sample Modeling, and here the vibrato and other articulations are done by algorithmic "tweaking" of (modeling) the samples in realtime.

Both types of sound engine do have pros and cons, but simple stuff like vibrato is not a problem with either.

But there are important awesome things they did not cover in the video. E.g the possibility to play Swam (and Sample Modeling) strings with a Seaboard. Here you do the vibrato by finger wiggling like with a real String instrument.

I only stumbled on this just now though (sorry i'm late) never heard of SWAM "engine" until now and if this is pure modeling (not humongous sample library based) then this is abit WoW sounding.

I'm sure there is more info around and maby it was just his Italian (lost in translation) thingie?

If you even have and use SWAM stuff then i'll take your word for it Michael.

They do have a Website and a forum (all English).
-> https://audiomodeling.com/
-> https://community.audiomodeling.com/

You might also take a look at their "relatives" (also in Italy) who do equal quality virtual instruments based on Kontakt. (I use their Trumpet, their (not available any more) "Sax Brothers" and their Strings.)
-> https://samplemodeling.com/en/index.php
-> https://vanilla.samplemodeling.com/

I in fact do have as well the SWAM Flute and the SWAM Cello.

With that, I learned that the SWAM engine can do both pure physical modeling as a mixture of Physical Modeling and a small amount of samples.

The Srings are pure modeled, while the Flutes (and AFAIK the other woodwinds) do have samples.

Not so long ago (in a galaxy, far far away) I jumped a Komplete 12 deal since I have their Mikro Mk2.
I have not installed/tried their Session Horns, Strings 2, Middle East, Vintage Organs and what have we yet (and should be ashamed of myself) but I will now! like, now!

Good times anyway! of what we can do
