I have really thoroughly been enjoying harvest. It's learning curve is like 0 to 60 and no time flat. Although I look forward to Future updates with maybe options to select and drag whole groups of notes or maybe you can do that and I just haven't figured it out. Either way I've been having a blast using it on ultimately leads and bass lines. Also it's great for re mixing MIDI files.

See The Revision to this review Below:

The only reason I am giving Harvest only two stars is because it only works with Abelton Live and FL. It would not be a problem, but the restriction appears in a small area so that I did not see this when I purchased it. Therefore, I can't use it since I use Sonar and Studio One as my DAWs. Many times when there are restrictions like this, it is made much more apparent.

I did install it and check it out, but it does not output to my synths in Sonar ... very disappointing. However it does look like a nice product. Just a warning read the specs carefully.


I have changed my rating to 5 stars for the following reasons:

1) From the review, I was contacted by one of the developers who understood the problem I ran into with not noticing the restrictions. It was great to have such a quick response. As they specify on their site, I could get a full refund, but I choose not to. I was told they were releasing an update shortly that would expand the support for other DAWs and that was enough for me. Also, it is great to have such a personal response and courteous exchange.

2) Sure enough today, there is a free update that has support for Studio One. I was happy to test it out. I had some confusion about how to get it to work with Studio One, but in about 15 minutes I figured it out. Watch the videos Harvest has produced. By watching I could easily understand how this works.

I'm very happy with this VST. I have other similar plugins, but just as in the case of Harvest they are all different and unique. The price really can't be beat.

I tried it with Sonar. It seemed to work, but I managed to crash Sonar. After my learning experience with Studio One, I went back to Sonar and got it to work with Sonar also.

The only minor problem I had was after stopping a generation I noted that the receiving VST (in my case Omnisphere) did not get a "note off" MIDI message. However, I just cut it off manually so not a biggie.

Great job and great customer support.

Have you really tested? Because I just did, and it works in FL Studio, Studio One, Bitwig, Reaper (which are the ones I have tested).

I must admit I have overseen this but I would assume it is more or less meant "only tested with" cause it (free lite version) worked for me in Mulab for example. But I got shocked I must admit as I have read your review, and yes, at last it is misleading especially as with Live/Max for live so many great things in this area (generative/sequencer) really only work with M4L. They should make this clear. Maybe write to support, they are responding quick and are very communicative and nice.

Ah well I think I spoke too soon about Sonar. I had what seemed to be a successful session with Harvest in Sonar. When I opened the project again to do additional work, the project through an exception every time. I started a new project again with Harvest. It seemed good and I saved it. On restarting and reloading, the same crashes occurred.

I am happy to report with Studio One, I did not have this problem. I started a previous song file (i.e. project in Studio One) and it started up cleanly. I will use Harvest in Studio One which is satisfactory for me. Anyway, Harvest does not claim compatibility with Sonar in its spec ... I guess its just a different animal.
