This collection is comprised of the four instruments of the standard saxophone quartet: the Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones. SWAM-W technology guarantees the same natural reactions as real instruments. With SWAM instruments you can compose and arrange your jazz, orchestral pieces, or concertos utilizing powerful instruments with natural, fluid expression.
SWAM Saxophones from Audio Modeling is comprised of the four instruments of the standard saxophone quartet: The Soprano Sax, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax and Baritone Sax.
Digitally Handcrafted Instruments
Ultra-realistic and expressive virtual saxophones - Developed by Audio Modeling using the SWAM Technology, SWAM Saxophones is the result of innovative performance techniques, concepts of physical and behavioral modeling along with the multi-vector/phase-synchronous sampling technique. The SWAM Saxophones collection is the most realistic, real-time controllable, expressive set of virtual saxophones on the market, and only need a large hard drive to create the perfect organic consistency of a real saxophone. This is due to the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance.
START PLAYING FOR REAL
SWAM Engine digitally handcrafted acoustic instruments are never a simple recording of notes via sample libraries, but rather a set of real virtual instruments based on their traditional counterparts, and they allow you to control the expression of a virtual acoustic instrument: while a sample library repeats a pre-recorded sound, SWAM instruments create sound in real-time, offering the most realistic and expressive saxophone sound without a massive library of samples.
Control the expression of your virtual acoustic instruments, break the limitations of traditional samplers and benefit from the perfect organic consistency resulting from the endless expressive parameters that are unique of every live performance. No Giga-sized pre-recorded libraries are required, but only the smallest footprint.
FOR STAGE AND STUDIO PRODUCTION
Choose SWAM Saxophones for composing, producing or performing any musical genre by layering it in a sections with no artifacts and simply selecting different timbres for each instance. From Jazz to Classical, from Country to Pop Music, just adjust any sound and behavioral parameter to get the exact response you want.
PLAY WITH REAL TIME CONTROLS
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
- Legato Mode (Glissando vs Expressive)
- Vibrato Depth
- Vibrato Rate
- Portamento Time
- Harmonic Structure
- Flutter Tongue
- Breath Noise
- Key Noise
- Dynamic Pitch
- Main Volume

- Reverb Mix
AU, VST, VST3, AAX 64bit
Mac OSX - 10.10 (Yosemite) – 12.4 (Monterey)
WINDOWS - Windows 10, Windows 11
Required space after installation: 276 MB for two plugins
RAM occupancy: about 80 MB for each instrument instance
The realism and expressiveness of SWAM instruments as a VST, AU, AAX, VST3 or standalone requires a computer with at least a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU for running a single plugin instance. Less powerful systems may also prove satisfactory, but may require larger buffer sizes, involving higher latencies.
