    For those interested in purchasing SWAM-based instruments:
    We are sorry to inform all those interested in buying Swam instruments that, following an unlawful action of Audiomodeling S.R.L. (Emanuele Parravicini & Stefano Lucato), we decided, in order to protect our customers, to temporarily suspend the distribution of Swam & Swam-S products.

    We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

    We confirm that the only legally authorized distributor of the above products is by contract Samplemodeling. Any other distribution would infringe Samplemodeling's exclusivity rights.

    Technical assistance to current owners of Swam instruments will be provided as usual.

    Nothing changes for Samplemodeling Kontakt-based instruments.

    Sincerely,
    Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek.

    Seems so. They worked together the last years but now they are divorced :yes:

    As I understand "Audiomodeling" was the creator of the plugins and licensed "Samplemodeling" as the worldwide distributor.
    That made it a little bit complicated for customers. You needed to buy the plugin in the Samplemodeling.com shop and authorize it in the audiomodeling.com website.
    In the last months Audiomodeling started to sell the plugins for a very low price with ROLI products and Samplemodeling sulkily is seeing this as an infringement of their rights as the one and only distributor.

    Now the "wars of the roses" have just begun :rofl:

    For customers it's easier to understand now: You buy the plugin in the "Audiomodeling" webshop and autorize it on the "Audiomodeling" website.

    It seems, "Samplemodeling" holds the copyright for some Kontakt versions only. Not a plugin in it's own right, just another Kontakt lib.
    For the real stuff, Kontakt isn't flexible enough (besides cost of vendor-license for Kontakt I suspect)

    That's too bad. The most promising physical modelling plugins along Modo Bass.

    Indeed. Even for advanced sample-based VSTi's like electric guitars the toll on CPU and memory is high.
    Not to talk in almost 100% physical modelling.

    SampleModelling seems ATM clearly the "bad guy" in this, but we all know copyrights and related things are a bitch.

    I thought that the Swam products model was actually borrowed from Samplemodeling!
