Here is another experiment with the square out of the HO in duet with the multistage.
From what i remember of the patch : the square out is mixed with a little bit of the sine outs, there is also some auto-fm from an aleatoric sine8. The pitch CV is drived by the CVa of the VM himself modulated (start/stop/time/strobe) by a double andore + wogglebug + lfo. The HO is then passed to the bionic lester modulated by the VM CVb+ref... sometimes there is a feeling of 8bit stuff, isn't it?

Loving all the sound examples in this thread.

Hoping to hear more :)

Can someone tell me if the separate output sine waves are independently controllable. Can this do beating?
thanks

The level amounts of each sine have individual CV control when the output is the main summed harmonic oscillator.

...and since these sines are the first 8 harmonics they will not beat.

Dream module would be the VHO with small individual tuning knobs for the 8 sines. The knobs would have a notched/click locking central position, allowing easy tuning to the first 8 harmonics, while still offering the potential to tweak the tunings. Knowing little about how the module actually works, I realise this may well be unfeasible, but dream modules don't have to be! Running with that idea, it would also cost under £10.

Yeah, don't think is possible in the waking world as the harmonics are harmonics of the fundamental freq. A doable dream setup would be eight VHO's in a case, where you could do just that. :))

They're pre-VCA: always at full volume, and not removed from the combined output. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have them post-VCA, but this way allows more flexibility, since you can use these outputs for different things simultaneously.
This is the biggest drawback for me.. I love the module, but this way you need a lot of vcas... Or at least attenuator cables, as the outputs are a bit too hot..
I'm hoping for some mod.. I just asked mark and I'm waiting for an answer.

The sounds great! Now in my list of potential next modules.

Simple 3-note sequence into the Harmonic Oscillator, one take. It's the only sound source. Various harmonics and wave outputs are routed to A) delay>spring reverb (center channel), B) wavefolder/shaper (left channels), and C) straight to mixer (square out, right channel). Subtle FM from a Spectrum oscillator. Clock and modulation all driven by a Batumi. Only one envelope used.

This thing can do SO MUCH.

^ That was an incredible little journey!

Do you have links to BlueBox sounds?

SHit man thats incredible! ill jump over there and drool.....


i just sold my HO - not for any reason other than i got a JF and ran outta room....BUT im surely going to grab one again in the next couple of months...

One thing i found time and time again was back off on the amount of modulation you throw at it and let it sing on its own a little...or run trigers/gates into the 7 harmonics and run the scan it opposite directions - so much fun...
look up!

The HO is sweet and I wish I had more room. I'm getting another Doepfer 6U for my portable case next month, but it's already filled!

Just a simple meditation. Audio is HO -> Optomix -> Phonogene -> A-199

5 Step rene sequence to HO, various modulations to phonogene gene size, slide and optomix control in from maths and function. Phonogene EOS clocks Rene and strikes optomix.

Rene step access switched to get some variation while always kept at 5 steps, along with playing the HO sliders.
I just discovered this, elegantly simple and beautiful.

Sweet. Gives me some ideas, even though I don't have all those modules.
Thanks

http://soundcloud.com/adrosaurus/alone-at-sea

Patch notes:
Verbos HO mix out to PGH Analog Replicator out to the mixer, and I manually play the sliders.
HO Center is modulated from Snazzy FX Telephone Game output 5.
Telephone Game clocked from 4ms PEG.t
HO Tilt is modulated with an LFO from PGH Chain Reactor.

MakeNoise STO shape out to Fxdf 12db input, normalled to Rxmx.
Rxmx B output to PGH Verbtronic, switch set to tronic.
Verbtronic mix out to the mixer.

STO shape modulated by PEG cycling envelope.

Rxmx channel modulated from Wogglebug stepped out,
radiate from another Chain Reactor LFO,
and Wogglebug burst out to Rxmx strike input.
I am manually stepping the Wogglebug with a dummy cable at the clock in.

Towards the end of the track I add in a 3rd voice:
STO sub out to PGH Filter (LP output) out to the mixer.
Filter cutoff manually modulated.

just to be clear, the harmonic series are based on just intonation?

Just intonation is based on the harmonic series, to be precise... ;-)

The harmonics of the HO are the first eight harmonics of the harmonic series just intonation may be considered to be based on. :despair:

EDIT: Maybe you mix up harmonics and overtones?
