Project SWAMI, Sampled Waveforms And Musical Instruments, is a collection of free software for editing, managing and playing musical instruments for MIDI music composition. Current focus is primarily the SoundFont format, which is an open file format for digital audio “sample” based instruments.
Project Swami now has a new website! The updated look and content is representative of the new found interest that I have in further developing this great software. My purchase of a new MIDI controller keyboard sparked a desire to add features to improve MIDI control and live composition in Swami. I’m also looking forward to developing additional new features, such as instrument library browsing support, virtual instrument files, session effect modulators as well as improving the Python binding and fixing outstanding bugs. A new release of Swami is long overdue, to include the changes that have been made in the last couple years. I’m also going to get serious about creating package installers for Mac OS X and Windows platforms. If you want to get involved, post something to the forums, mailing list or make a donation!
