Swierk comprises of 4 sound generators, 2 oscillators with 3 different selectable waveforms, a sub oscillator and a noise generator.
6 “internal” modulation sources can be routed via any of the 12 modulation slots to a choice of 20 destinations. 2 onboard low frequency oscillators. 2 simple ADSR envelopes and the new 8 stage envelope generator give users the ability to create a wide range of sounds. The “external” matrix is where users can route midi controls such as pitch wheel, mod wheel and velocity to 37 different destinations in any of the 8 modulation slots. The new simple preset manager allows for easy browser and file management of the 128 presets that come with Swierk. 50 of which have been created by several excellent sound designers. More presets are available for free from the saltline preset page.
Swierk was chosen for OSC64. All the track s below were entered into the competition and created using only Swierk as the sound source.
