Yes, they are. I think he doesn't like the custom roms he loaded in and wants the duplicate stock roms back in the a-f slots.
Yes, I'm assuming that as well, my comment was more that he isn't overwriting or losing anything with the expansion ROMs.
Though I agree those need to be made publicly available nonetheless.

Thanks for the info. I hadn't loaded from the expansion ROM, but I assume the previous owner had. I didn't know that the stock a-f was just a duplicate, so that's good too know that I'm not losing anything by having the custom ROMs loaded. I'm really psyched to have the ability to load other sound in the future. This module is so much fun - amazing sounds abound!

Im curious if anyone got hold of the Governor's new PH roms that it was mentioned might be given out at knobcon? Was that something that happened? Anything interesting?

Is that issue of the FM pot being like a fine tune pot meant to be fixed or? Does it still affect pitch when you have a signal patched in to the fm input?

So I just finally sourced a second hand PHmk2 at a good price: super happy since it's my first IME/Harvestman module and the beginning of my "low arts" case.

I'll work my way through this thread over the next days/weeks, but a quick question: when it arrives, is there is an easy way to tell which firmware it has loaded? Am I right in thinking that it displays 2.52 on start up if but only if its on the latest firmware?

I believe that's correct.

Thanks mt3. The next implication seems to be that if it isn't on 2.52, there is no obvious way of telling which firmware it is on?

Hopefully I can find someone in Berlin with a Pickit who can help me out.

Where is the PH mkII ROM expander that was on instagram a while back? I really would love some more wavetables!

Hi!

Waiting for a second hand piston Honda. I've been through this thread searching for samples - any more?

This is what I do! Ease the pain of shipment tracking by listening to samples :doh:

Thanks!

after noticing my PH tracks weren't in your search, tried adding a space between Pison & Honda and got a whole new set of results:

Thanks! I've gone through some of SoundCloud but there's definitely new stuff there, too.

If you guys have demos or songs with the PH, feel free to post it here :)

CV INput on Piston Honda mk2

Post by rean1mator » Thu Mar 02, 2017 2:04 pm

So what exactly is the CV input on the mk2 for? I'm at a loss the purpose of this input. CV being a general term for different types of modulation right? 1v/oct has it's own input. i'm at a loss.

Manual here:
http://www.theharvestman.org/pistonmk2.pdf

"The attenuverter is shared between the “CV” and “FM” inputs. CV is a unipolar, exponential frequency input, and FM is an AC-coupled audio input for thru-zero frequency modulation."

how would y'all compare the HDII and the PHII in terms of versatility and overlap? I currently have the HD but am considering swapping it for a PH because I think I'm just not that into the Complex Oscillator sound :despair:

There's really no overlap.

Hi!

I saw some mentions of this in the thread, but nothing too in-depth:

The FM attenuverter very noticeably affects the oscillator pitch - even if there's nothing plugged in either of the frequency modulation inputs. And the weird thing, it affects the pitch even if there are dummy cables plugged in...? This seems very, very odd.
