have you tried Om synth?

Ffrom the SSM page:
" Note: Sadly Spiral Modular is not under active development and hasn't 
been for some time. I'm busy on other projects now, and ssm lives on as 
the core of this. Otherwise, Om synth has a similar methodology to ssm, 
but has a more modern design and is under active development."
