Hi Swam Gurus,

What about a Pipe Organ.

This seems like a perfect candidate for the Swam engine. A Swam pipe supposedly will sound a lot more "expressive" than a sampled one. I suppose additionally, Swam technology will be able to allow for realistically model the intermodulations that occur when a pipe is playing in the modulated air-pressure field of active pipes nearby. Sampling can't do this.

Of course a single PC will not be able to power the necessary some 20 Swam engines at the same time, but regarding the cost of a Pipe Organ or the loudspeaker system necessary to reproduce a sound field similar to that of a real Organ, using multiple PCs does not seem inappropriate.

Did you ever contact or have been contacted by Cameron Carpenter, who is known to be about to get/build the perfect virtual pipe organ for himself (and who supposedly is able to invest the necessary resources to trigger your interest).

Just came across this post, even though it was from a few months ago. Since the Garritan Stradivari is no longer available, is there really a modeling based solo violin out there? I mean one that can be played expressively with a windcontroller in real time, with realistic portamento and glissando? I have not found one yet. If you can point me out a good one at a similar price range to the SM instruments, do let me know; I would be very grateful! Thanks.

He did it:
see: http://www.cameroncarpenter.com/

"Built by digital organ pioneers Marshall & Ogletree of Needham, MA, the touring organ will allow both Cameron’s repertoire and his touring schedule to expand in even more compelling directions."

Seems to use just pure sampling technology.

I would have loved to see a (supposedly more expressive) SampleModeling instrument for him :(

Hi SM Team :)

First, sorry for my poor english skills, I'm a French frog composer!

Just wanted to know if you had any plan of releasing The Flute? I just can't wait to get the entire wind orchestra!

Thanks
