With SWAM v3.5 Sound engine and Experience improvements. It's only the beginning, join Audio Modeling Family and start making music in a new different, exciting way!

SWAM Solo Brass has arrived on iOS! The incredibly powerful Physical Modeling technology is now MOBILE. Extreme Realism delivered in a package of only 28MB without including any sample!

With our SWAM Trumpet for iPad, you now have the unique ability to recreate all the expressiveness and subtleties of a natural brass instrument sound, as played by a real player, in any style — from classical to film scoring and even microtonal music.

SWAM Trumpet for iPad can be used as a standalone instrument for playing in real-time, or as a plugin for mobile music production. Play with your favorite external controller or directly from the iPad through our intuitive interface.

With SWAM Trumpet for iPad you can:

- Explore our collection of presets, create your own, or import them from your Desktop
- Play in real-time using the standalone version of the app
- Play with or without a mute
- Play in a variety of styles like a real player
Control the instrument’s expressivity in real-time directly through the touch control interface on your iPad
- Play and control the instrument’s expressivity in real-time using your favorite external controller (ROLI Seaboard, Akai EWI, breath controllers, regular keyboards, and more)
- Use the included AUv3 plugin version to produce music with a mobile setup
- Use the included AUv3 plugin version in combination with Camelot PRO for live performances
- Adjust every aspect of the instrument’s sound (timbre, vibrato, amount of air, etc.) through an easy-to-use control panel
- Micro-tune the instrument through the Pitch Manager
- Add built-in effects such as Reverb, EQ, and Compressor
- Have access to easy MIDI control configurations

The SWAM Trumpet for iPad is for you if:
- you’re a wind controller player looking for a mobile setup to perform live without needing a computer while still having an incredible sound
- you’re a keyboard player and feeling frustrated by the limited expressive capabilities normal sample-based plugins give you
- you’re a music producer looking for a mobile setup to produce music from anywhere without having to carry around expensive gear
- you’re looking for a realistic virtual instrument to easily have fun with on your iPad

IMPORTANT: If you choose to play using an external controller, please note that a controller with the ability to continuously control the expression (like an expression pedal, breath controller, MPE device, wind controller, …) is required. The same way a real brass instrument needs air, SWAM Trumpet needs something to control its expressivity. SWAM instruments do not work with just note-on velocity.

Just a little bit of musical heaven on earth

I can’t celebrate this company or it’s offerings enough. If you’re making music and you want realism in a digital format, this SWAM library is seriously one of a kind. Especially with an MPE controller - you have real sounding instruments at your fingertips that only experts could discern as being synthetic. Heck, I bet you could even fool them in the right song/context.

Don’t trust me, go have a listen to what they offer and get your wallet out, cause you won’t make a more worthwhile plug-in investment this year. Simply the best.

SWAM+GeoShred…match made in music heaven

This is mind blowing realistic sounding. Pair it with a seaboard, or even better, run it under AUM with GeoShred controlling it and some good reverbs from Eventide or FabFilter and Oh Wow…worth every penny. GeoShred now has a MIDI setting specially made to work with the SWAM brass instruments. If you have GeoShred get the SWAM in app purchase, just to good. It’s the music app I’m using the most, and I have them almost all.

Just incredible

I’m running this and tenor trombone on a 3rd gen iPad Pro with a LinnStrument 128 just in default mode in the app and this is the absolute closest I’ve heard from anything that wasn’t an actual horn with the added bonus that I can play them like a guitar on the LinnStrument. It just sounds like a trumpet. Hoping for a cello model next PLEASE!
