I loved my old HO before I sold off my whole modular, but now that I’m back in, I had to pick up another one. Installed at the same time as my new QPAS, and having a great time.

What modules are people using to “play” the individual harmonics?

I like sending (attenuated) clocks from the tempi at different rates to play the different harmonics!

I just put my for-sale Varigate 8+ back in the case, and might keep it now. Clicks like crazy, as one would expect, so I guess I need more envelopes. But man is it easy to create something nice with this combo.

Here's a little sequence for a rainy afternoon. Verbos Harmonic Oscillator is the only sound source.

I have never tried the HO but i really like the sound of it. How does the harmonics sound played with different tonal scales? I mean, can i always be sure that they wont sound out of tune regardless of what scale i have restricted my notes to the 1voct to? Or does the harmonics relate to the harmonic minor or major scale?

The harmonic series does not map exactly to 12 tone equal temperament, so one or two of the harmonics sound like they are out of tune. This however can work in interesting ways.

For something a little bit different...
Verbos Harmonic Oscillator is my rock'n'roll band!

Last week I played a gig based pretty much around a single Verbos Harmonic Oscillator. The only additional source is Verbos Complex Oscillator providing that pseudo-clap. This is a live recording of a song from that gig:

I've had my HO for a little over a month now. After many, many hours of experimentation, a humble offering of something worth sharing :drinking:

So since there is no dedicated thread to the HO, I hope you don't mind that I ask a question here for owners.

The CV input; do you find it extremely hard to zero the attenuator? It seems that I can dial it close to zero, but at that point I have to practically breathe on the knob to make finer adjustments. It's almost like it's a logarithmic curve on the cv values.

Am I alone here?
