Swamp XT is a timbre modulation synthesizer. It can create unique sounds from clear & harsh metallic sequenced sounds to soft & wide modulated Pads. This is achieved by modulating the timbre on the oscillator level.

Swamp XT features 'Timbre-modulation': It processes each oscillator's waveform in a very unique way by changing (i.e. enriching or limiting) the harmonic spectrum making the sound fatter, wider or narrower, right down to nearly dissolving it to some kind of distorted noise, depending on the input wave.

While the original Swamp had an oscillator routing to balance its output between normal (i.e. direct signal) and timbre modulated signal, which could each be balanced to go to direct out or to filter, this has been simplified in Swamp XT: direct und timbre modulated signal can be balance mixed to one signal and the output of both oscillators can be balance mixed too. While the direct and filtered signal can be balanced at the amplifier stage of Swamp XT.

Swamp XT delivers a wide variety of sounds - including some really strange and weird.
  • 2 digital oscillators running at a time to be selected from:
    - 2 PCM wave oscillators powered by 128 different waveforms.
    - 2 additive wavetable generators to create various waves from up to 31 partials.
  • 1 resonant filter (24db Lowpass).
  • 4 ADSR-style envelope generators.
  • X-Torsion, one Spook effect, one Gator (Gater) effect.
  • 4 LFO (BPM-synced).
  • 1 dedicated Pitch LFO (BPM-synced).
  • 1 Sample & Hold (BPM-synced).
  • 1 BPM-synced Delay.
  • XY Super-modulation Pad.

Simply amaising !!! Extremely original, dark and muddy sounds (swampish may be the word ?), tons of great presets, and the wavetables can be replaced by drawable additive oscillators, so cool ! Sadly, its UI is small and it does'nt have MIDI learn. If you don't care about the drawable oscillators but want an updated UI and slightly less muddy sounds, check UltraSwamp Free in stead (Pro version that is now free too has MIDI learn).

Can't say enough good things about this VST. The sounds are extremely unique. If you're looking to add a creepy sounding pad or lead synth, this is your dream VST.

Can do complex, evolving sounds with metallic and noisy nouance...never heard anything like this in the "free" world. Lazy functions is and endless source of new presets without wasting too much time :) Fantastic!

I was looking for a plug to do those huge metallic moving C-Tec F242 type of textures and this one fills the bill. Amazing industrial ebm types of sounds with a really cool editor for each wave. Very unique and fantastic. HGF is a German god bringing Odin's arsenal to all synth lovers on the earth so that we can save the planet with awesome music. What other plugin enables the user to create the soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic wasteland by pressing ONE key.
