What's the difference between SWAM Saxophones and The Sax Brothers?
Important! As announced by Samplemodeling, "The Sax Brothers" have been dismissed on May, 31st 2018: https://vanilla.samplemodeling.com/discussion/39594/final-agreement-between-samplemodeling-audio-modeling
"The Sax Brothers" is a sample library for Kontakt with extensive scripting and sample processing conceived and developed by Stefano Lucato (currently, CEO of Audio Modeling). "SWAM Saxophones" is based on a totally new proprietary technology called SWAM - Synchronous Wave Acoustic Modeling.
Acoustically speaking, the difference is not much. Someone says that The Sax Brothers have a brighter sound, the Tenor Sax has a more noisy sound on pp dynamics, but of course, it depends on settings, presets, and equalization.
- The Sax Brothers need to be played with Kontakt player; SWAM Saxophones come as AudioUnits, VST, and AAX plugin for both Mac and Windows 64bit.
- SWAM Saxophones includes a Soprano Sax, while The Sax Brothers does not.
- SWAM Saxophones runs without any issue at 44100Hz sample rate, while the Alto Sax in The Sax Brothers needs to be played at 88200Hz, otherwise you'll hear a jitter noise.
- SWAM Saxophones include microtuning, temperament, and overblow functionalities, while The Sax Brothers does not.
- SWAM Saxophones includes two types of legato modes (Glissando vs. Expressive).
- SWAM Saxophones supports multi-channel, multi-expressive devices (ROLI Seaboard, ROLI Blocks, LinnStrument)
- Finally, The Sax Brothers is a deprecated product—it is no longer supported and will never be updated. The SWAM Saxophones product is constantly updated to include new features and fix reported issues.
