Gavinski’s Tutorials did an deeply detailed review and tutorial for the new SWAM instruments in GeoShred!
This video review and walkthrough looks at the new IAPs in Geoshred 5.0 update and helps you a) decide if they are right for you, b) shows you how to use them in Geoshred c) compares the benefits of playing onscreen versus using an mpe controller such as the Seaboard or Morph. These cost $15 dollars a pop, $75 dollars for the collection of 6 beautiful and expressive acoustic-modeled instruments: Tenor Sax, Violin, Cello, Clarinet, Oboe, Flute. I have 5 copies of single IAP purchases (not the collection) to give away to subscribers to the channel watching in the first 2 days of release of this video! See the pinned comment at the top of the YouTube comments section for details). Oh - I also finally joined twitter, feel free to follow me @gavinski_s 🎉
