“On the latest Saga tour we used 12 Xkeys on stage in our prototype setup and they worked amazingly well. We plan to keep expanding the use of these versatile and highly playable controllers. It’s funny looking at some of the fans wondering how I get all these big sounds out of these little keyboards and that’s half the fun of playing them!”

In 2002, Swire formed drum and bass act Pendulum with fellow Xygen bandmate McGrillen and local DJ Paul "El Hornet" Harding. [6] Swire relocated to the United Kingdom the following year, along with the other members of the band, and the band soon gained widespread underground recognition for their tracks "Vault" and "Trail of Sevens." [7] Over the next two years Swire worked on material for the band's debut album, Hold Your Colour , primarily as the band's songwriter and producer alongside McGrillen. The album was released in 2005, to considerable commercial success. When the band began performing live in October 2006, Swire became the band's lead singer in addition to playing a Ztar – a guitar-like MIDI controller – during live performances.
