Swarmatron Patch First Attempt

After hearing what could be done on the Octatrack, I decided to give it a go on my A4 last night. Needless to say I didn’t get very much sleep.

Here’s the kit and sound; http://tinyurl.com/zn3sqdu

I mapped all the macros to my own liking, to try mimicking the behaviour of the “swarm” effect and the infamous THX slide.

Here’s all the macros in a bit of detail;

Cho- Brings in chorus volume and changes sync amount of each track

Bzz- Linear detune of all oscillators in either direction while widening chorus

Ovd- Adds tuned lfo filter modulation to all tracks

Pan- Spreads tracks equally, 2 on each side

Flt- Lowpass filter over all tracks

Dly- Brings in delay and very slow lfo controlling delay time

-/+ Tunes every oscillator either up or down

Spn- Adds various speeds of panned lfo’s to each track

Frq- Frequency modulation in either direction for even more bees!

Hope you guys have some fun with this, I know I am :alien:


Sounds cool. Will download and try it out asap. Thanks :slight_smile:

Heres an audio demo for you guys! No effects other than the macros are used up until around 2 min, then I send it to space. :wink: Also drop into a beat with the Rytm midway.


Very nice!

Anyone have a go with this kit? I’d love to hear some more demos! I’ve been finding tons of variation and subtle nuances in my adventures so far.

Superb Vanilla :slight_smile:


I’ll try it later - let you know.

THIS IS SO NICE all night as your symptom… Did you apply some settings to the setting menu and all the other perf mode as pitch bend, modwheel ?

I don’t believe so… Only bought the A4 a month prior so I was still learning the ropes.

Might do that today and update the link, i’ll keep you posted!

I think it is a great use about :slight_smile:
