Recommendations for AUv3 instruments

I only own Thumbjam at the moment, and until the SWAM instruments become available on this platform, I wondered what you would recommend in the vein of realistic virtual modelled instruments to use with MG2? I found TJ very good, but rather limited in terms of the range of instruments available. I’m mostly interested in brass and woodwind, orchestral instruments, strings and pads, rather than synths, although I like the Korg Wavestation a lot for pads.
Is there anything available on iOS which does physical modelling, like the Yamaha VL series, or is that too much to expect?

I have more plugins than sense but running MG2 into Garageband opens up a zillion possibilities, especially if you download all the free sound packs. SynthMaster Player or SynthMaster One also have tons of useful presets for MG2, some of which sound a lot like “real” horns, strings, etc.

Sampletank has some good sounds, also Isymphonic - but that can get a bit expensive depending on how many soundpacks you need. Im also trying to figure out a way to use the SWAM packs in the NOISE app. Hopefully one day!
