FREE device! Swarmalators applies the "Swarmalators" model to a bank of oscillators as modulation. More info is in the link below about Swarmalators. Because Swarmalaotrs' positions and internal oscillators are all interconnected, they offer different dynamic possibilities from swarming to harmonic synchronization. The internal oscillators of each Swarmalator is applied to basic LFO shapes, which together with the XY positions can be mapped to the audio oscillator parameters. The audio oscillators additionally have tuning options (Scala files can be used for custom tunings, including microtonal ones!), FM, and resonant lopass filtering. This allows for sonic possibilities from lush textures, to glitchy and harsh soundscapes, as well as generative melodic and harmonic patterns.
