SWAM Big Band Template

A starting point for Divisimate and Physical Modeling

A template for a classic Big Band ensemble utilizing the SWAM instruments by Audio Modeling in a unified layout, including a selection of orchestration and voicing presets.

This template only uses 16 Ports, and is the same across all DAWs, including Logic Pro X.

To create the spatial relationships between instruments and the room sound this template uses EAReverb 2 by Eareckon.
If you do not own all of the plugins used in the templates, they will sound different than in the demos.
  • Port 1: Alto Saxophone 1
  • Port 2: Alto Saxophone 2
  • Port 3: Tenor Saxophone 1
  • Port 4: Tenor Saxophone 2
  • Port 5: Baritone Saxophone
  • Port 6: Trumpet 1
  • Port 7: Trumpet 2
  • Port 8:Trumpet 3
  • Port 9:Trumpet 4
  • Port 10: Trombone 1
  • Port 11: Trombone 2
  • Port 12: Trombone 3
  • Port 13: Bass Trombone
  • Port 14: Piano/Guitar
  • Port 15: Bass
  • Port 16: Drums

If you do not own one of these products, the template could still be useful, but you may need to use different instruments and/or do your own positioning & reverb.

Dynamics: CC11 (Expression)

Vibrato Depth: CC01 (Modwheel)
