AudioKit - AKOperationGenerator with AKParameters - CPU Issue

I need help with sending AKParameters to the AKOperationGenerator. My current solution use a lot of CPU. Is there a better way how to do it?

Here is my example code:

import AudioKit

class SynthVoice: AKNode {
    override init() {
        let synth = AKOperationGenerator { p in
            //(1) - 30% CPU
            let osc: AKOperation = AKOperation.squareWave(frequency: p[0], amplitude: p[1], pulseWidth: p[2])

            //(2) - 9% CPU
            //let osc: AKOperation = AKOperation.squareWave(frequency: 440, amplitude: 1, pulseWidth: 0.5)
            return osc
        synth.parameters[0] = 880
        synth.parameters[1] = 1
        synth.parameters[2] = 0.5

        self.avAudioNode = synth.avAudioNode

class ViewController: UIViewController {
    override func viewDidLoad() {

        let mixer: AKMixer = AKMixer([SynthVoice(), SynthVoice(), SynthVoice(), SynthVoice(), SynthVoice(), SynthVoice()])
        AudioKit.output = mixer

I need 6 voice osc bank with envelope filter for each voice. I did not find any OSC-bank with envelope filter in AudioKit, so I started to write my own via AKOperationGenerator... But the CPU is too high. (About 100% in my project - 6 AKOperationGenerator with PWM square osc and envelope filter and a lot of AKParameters that can be changed via UI)

Thanks for any response.

I'd definitely do this at the DSP Kernel level. Its C/C++ but its really not too bad. Use one of the AKOscillatorBank type nodes as your model, but in addition to having an amplitude envelope, put in a filter envelope the same way. We're releasing an open source synth that does this exact thing in a few months if you can wait.
