Finally the wait is now over and this is the software synth everyone's been talking about. In many ways there are lots of similarities compared to like having a Roland VariOS but only in a software version. This one goes even deeper with enough synth options to blow your mind. I'm just now scratching the surface of what it's capable of doing and I feel this belongs to an elite class of today's top software synths like Omnisphere, Alchemy, Absynth 5, Vertigo, etc. Even in the same catigory of what it does, well I should say this one is darn good in it's own ways of making music and manipulating sounds with lots of potential behind this software beast. What's also good about it is that Harmor is a very small synth program and it doesn't take much of your HD space to install like most others do. My rough guess it's only a 10.6 MB program it's very small and you'll be very happy with the size and very happy with it overall. Image-Line sure did it again.
Agreed - this sucka turns samples into patches, instantly! That is schweet. The one downside is that it's a 32-bit program, so if your're running a 64-bit DAW that doesn't have bridging (I'm lookin' at YOU, Studio One V2!), then you are out of luck.
Spot on review, FarleyCZ. A great but somewhat confused (or confusing) synth, which I mainly use for it's powerful and transparent resynthesis abilities, it can turn voices and other samples into sonic taffy with a minimum of fuss. Creating synth patches on it? That hasn't really happened for me, but I'm sure others would gel with that part of it.
Yes, no doubt, Harmor is a wonderful synth. Image-line updated to 64-bit most of it's synths a few years ago. On my system I run both the 32 and 64-bit versions with Sonar Platinum. Thanks, aumordia for a very concise, well thought out, review.
