Świerk is a relatively straight forward subtractive synthesizer with familiar sound generators, controls, routing, look and feel.
  • 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, providing as much control as possible to get the best results out of the 2 onboard low frequency oscillators.
  • 2 simple ADSR envelopes and 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 preset manager allows for easy browser and file management of the 128 presets that come with Świerk. 50 of which have been created by several excellent sound designers. Soon we will have more presets from them available to download for free from the saltline preset page.

Agreed with the person who posted just below me. Why do you need audio effects on *every* synth used in the project? It amazes me when "everybody" posting here uses Image-Line's program it seems. What happened to "real-pro studio sound"? It means use "yer kung-soul". Many presets are appreciated, useful for pop music or Ibiza-ambient-like stuff, or SF2 replacement of orchestral tones (drums irreplaceable). I'm getting OCD about panning oscillators so I need that button to reset to center... too bad too many other plug-ins leave that out. Also like the mod-matrix option for unipolar or bipolar for using modwheel. What a shame Ichi2 isn't this easy to program and is less stable. Also there is one author I think is from England, only used strange names for a series of plug-ins that he created.

This is one of the best and clean free vst plugins you can download! 5/5 no brainer! I really recommend you to try it out!

Je m'attendais à un truc génial. En fait, les sons sont archi méga entendus et d'une qualité moyenne. Pas grave, on peut "tweaker" ! Sauf que l'agencement du synthé est un bo...l sans nom et que les sons de base sont tellement moyens (pour être poli) qu'on ne peut pas transformer une citrouille en carosse. Pas de bol, je n'ai pas la main verte.

Just Super Cool!!, even more right before the Molot03 Compressor; The Triad would be amazing in a 64X version to work on Ableton Live!

Works perfectly with vsthost and Reaper. Very low aliasing and CPU and great modulation capabilities ! Great synth.

09/2013: Would be a okay plugin, but crashes in FLStudio 11 (had 3 instances running; after reloading all vsti messed up badly - no sound from 2 of the 3 instances, 1 played odd sound and FLStudio reacted with a long 5 second delay pressing play/pause) Hope this information can help to fix it.

For synths that crash your DAW, sometimes these synths do that... so do the top dollar pro pluggies- Get the VST HOST here, a stand alone host, it has a WAV. recorder built into it, Record your riff parts as a individual wav file @ the bpm your song is played in, then TRANSFER into FL like you would loops, it may take bit more 'work' to be a recording artist, but hey it got done right??? You can adjust the dynamics with your tools like any other rendered file.
