The SWAM Flute is a perfect illustration of how a virtual instrument can realize the concept of articulation. The physics of the flute determine that the instrument’s main expressive techniques (such as expression, vibrato, and flutter tongue) all depend on a single factor: the dynamics of the breath.
With SWAM Flute, all these parameters are easily controlled in real time with standard MIDI controllers, or even with a breath controller for a truly realistic feel.
Nothing could be more natural…other than playing an actual acoustic flute!

The realism and expressiveness of the SWAM instrumentrequires a computer with at least a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo CPU for running a singleplugin instance. Less powerful systems may also prove satisfactory, but mayrequire larger buffer sizes, involving higher latencies.
