Eurorack makers 4ms have officially announced a new module, and it’s a pretty exciting one. It’s called Spherical Wavetable Navigator (SWN) and, according to the company, is a six-channel synthesizer that makes it easy to create slowly morphing drones, polyphonic melodies, evolving sequences, and rich textures.
How Does It Work?
The SWN features six wavetable oscillators with independent pitch, level, and waveform controls. Six LFOs can be used as modulation sources and/or envelopes, making it easy to add motion to your patch.
Each channel is a full voice and can be “played” using the top row of buttons, the internal LFOs, or note-change detection on the 1V/oct jacks.
The SWN ships with 12 three-dimensional (spherical) wavetables, and an easy interface allows you to record and edit your own custom wavetables from live audio. Free software called SphereEdit allows you to use a Mac, Windows, or Linux computer to create, edit, and convert .wav files into Spherical wavetables to be transferred to the SWN.
Price and Availability $599. Available in May. More info on the 4ms website.
