SF1 is only available for Mac OS 9. Like the old Mac OS, SF1 is not longer being developed. It is provided here as an unsupported freeware download only. For OS X support please download the current version of Spongefork.

Spongefork 1 was created with an intent to create a self-contained software instrument capable of responding to
gestural control while requiring a minimum of hardware components. It is an instrument designed for live performance.
Because of this, all sound is triggered from either the mouse or keyboard requiring no other gear. SF1 is built
around dual wave table oscillators (oscillators are based on pitchfork by Tom Erbe) controlled by mouse dragging in a pitch window allowing you to manipulate waveforms or
samples, use frequency modulation, and trigger samples simultaneously. SF1 can also load a bank of sound resources
(up to 64 samples within a file) and map them to keys or the pitch window as well being able to play files
from the disk. It is also possible to record direct into the wave tables or into the playlist allowing real time audio
