In the Analysis window, you see a sonogram of the sound. Underneath the top row of tabs for choosing the Main and Operator pages are controllers for Operator Shape. And of course you can create a custom blur mask, to create different attack and release times for different frequencies. All the changes show up in the oscilloscope display, while noise can be added via a fader before the output reaches the operator master controllers and the all-important Octave and Frequency tuning controls. Version 2 adds another four filters to this list, in case the previous eight couldn't fill up your sonic plate.
The filter section works like that of a standard subtractive synth, but offers considerable flexibility in terms of filter shapes. I definitely recommend getting the demo to actually hear the quality of these presets. There are no attempts to disguise the sound with analogue emulation effects or vintage-modelled oscillators. The amount of this distribution is controlled by the pitch slider of the unison unit. The shift will spread the cloned harmonics away from their fundamental and the gap spreads them away from the first harmonic.

Having said this, though, we reckon it sounds clean and clear, not harsh or cold. You can either have them function in parallel or in series. But if we include the fact that this plugin is also utilizing multisamples, which Harmor does not, we start to understand where we get some of the realism from their pianos and strings presets. Be blessed and thank you for the support even just for watching. For this review, I had the chance to play with the synth and learn a whole lot about sound design in the process. Early on one thing became very clear, Harmor is a beast with an immense amount of sound design capabilities.
Again this can be customized by a variety of knobs. You can edit your bassline patterns fast and easy using the sequencer. One of its main highlights is the Flex Preset Browser. You can also determine the amount of the specific effect per set of harmonics with various line shapes, like a slope, a curve, a sine wave or a manually drawn slope. Put simply, it looks and acts much like a subtractive synth, but is in fact additive under the hood.
The filter is further enhanced by modulation via a dedicated envelope generator and low frequency oscillator, as well as responding to velocity information and keyboard tracking. As you click on each description, the browser will automatically filter down the preset list for you. The addition of ring modulation and resonant filters add even more colour to the sound with little programming overhead. One that ought to be of particular interest is the Spectrogram, seen below third from left. The result is a synth that can produce sounds that simply wouldn't be possible using subtractive synthesis alone. You can choose different colors for any preset, so it is quite visually interesting.
These give you quick access to parameters that effect the sound the most for that particular preset. It has a logical envelope knob and frequency cut-off knob. Mention of waveforms brings us to the Oscillator Shape mentioned above. The oscillators also come equipped with Maxx Claster's own powerful spectrum analysis technology. Prism And now some of the weirder modules, prism. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. The fun and ingenuity start here.

A great feature that will help browse through the 458 presets and counting is the ability to sort them by type and style. And once again, you can customise these effects for the individual harmonics in the line editor of the harmonic unison pitch, giving you ultimate control. L-R Logo, Waveform, Spectrogram, Vectorscope and Frequency Histogram According to Image-Line, colour hue represents intensity or level, vertical position is relative to frequency 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz and horizontal position shows time. A single carrier modulating itself makes the output 'buzzier', and the fun starts when you alter the pitch ratio of the modulator: octave ratios produce harmonic changes to the timbre, while whole steps and cents produce inharmonic distortion that can get downright ugly.
What Harmor does is different, it sends commands to the additive part to manipulate the harmonic oscillators and reproduce the traditional effect. This means that you can detune the high end of your sound without detuning the low end. With blur enabled you can use the pluck shape to determine the amount of the blur effect over the frequency range. Almost ironically, it's the fact that Harmless's sound is so 'undisguised' and raw that makes it standout. Unlike a typical phaser effect, which uses phase cancellation to artificially create moving 'holes' in the frequency spectrum, Harmless instead creates such gaps by directly manipulating the harmonics that make up the sound.
