The Swarm is a drone synth inspired by The Swarmatron, a handmade synthesizer from Dewanatron.
The Swarm is based around a bank of eight oscillators that start out tuned in unison. Using the Span knob, you can continuously stretch out that cluster of notes from unison to, at the widest setting, evenly spaced harmonic multiples. Along the way, all kinds of dissonant tones and beat frequencies are created.
We have released The Swarm as a standalone application only. It is not available as a plug-in at this time, but the audio output of The Swarm may be sent to ReWire-compatible host applications.
