Stefano Lucato is a professional musician, musical producer, developer, and programmer. He made several records and musical productions for the Italian radio and television. His passion for music is paralleled by interest for acoustical physics, technologies for sound synthesis, and dedicated programming. Collaboration with Dr. Giorgio Tommasini starts in 2003, eventually leading to the development of proprietary techniques, such as “Determination of modal resonances and the impulse response of an instrument by analysis of pitched sounds”, and to creation of Midi processors used for the first prototypes of solo strings instruments: “The Stradivari Violin”, presented at NAMM as of January 2005. Afterward Stefano has developed a revolutionary method of sample handling, allowing real time multivector morphing across time, timbre and pitch. This technology (“Synchronous Wave Triggering”) has been applied for the first time to Mr. Sax T., the virtual tenor saxophone developed in collaboration with Samplemodeling. In 2009, Stefano began his collaboration with engineer Emanuele Parravicini on the development of a new and more powerful technology: SWAM engine.
Also known as Lele, is a Telecommunications Engineer, freelancer, developer. During the university has in-depth subjects such as: signal theory, random processes, digital signal processing and software development. Then he attended a Master in Information Technologies. Lele is also a musician and a singer, he likes music and audio applications. From 2002 he has developed many Web-based projects, using PHP, Java, and some C++ as programming languages, working with big companies also as project manager, other than programmer. From 2007 he started to develop audio plugins and working on digital audio research. Collaboration with Stefano Lucato began on september 2009, starting the SWAM engine project. He currently is the development manager and main developer of this project.
Luigi is an audio plugins developer and musician, he is the founder and owner of NUSofting and Dash Signature brands, producing software, especially synthesizers (soft synths), since 2002. The participation in the SWAM engine development beggining in 2009 is mainly focused in the interface development and thanks to his expertise he is also, with Emanuele Parravicini, supervisor of the project.
