Videos Syntheway Virtual Musical Instruments  

Harmodion is an organ and a free-reed aerophone virtual instrument, which includes electronic, clonewheel drawbar, transistor and combo organs, as well as reed harmonium, flutina, accordion and bandoneon. It uses additive synthesis allowing to manipulate harmonically the sine waveform components to produce pitched sounds, as well as to individually detune those components to produce inharmonic timbres. A set of sliding drawbars are used to mix the various harmonic components generated by the tonewheels emulation in order to synthesize a wide variety of sounds.

  • 9 Drawbars. By sliding drawbars in or out, the user can mix various pitches and create the richly distinctive sounds of an electric organ or of a free reed aerophone instrument.
  • The Additive synthesis constructs complex sounds by controlling the level of individual sine-wave components. The sound can be reshaped by alterations made to timbre. A harmonic sound could be restructured to sound inharmonic, and vice versa.
  • The rich harmonic content of their sound allows to generate the widest palette of tonal variations from tonewheel drawbar and electronic organs to squeezeboxes (hand-held bellows-driven) emulations. Legendary combo organs can be modeled in order to approach to those classics like the Farfisa Compact Organ and Vox Continental Transistor Combo Organ, among others.
  • Vibrato effect, with depth and speed modulation control.
  • Adjustable Key Click simulation to add the percussive effect for distinctive organ sounds and button click noise in Accordion and Bandoneon presets.
  • Configurable Drive level. Accomplished by clipping the input signal, this effect adds sustain and additional harmonics and overtones to the signal, creating a richer sound with a warm thickness regarding to the original tone.
  • MIDI Automation. Implementation of MIDI Continuous Controller parameters for use with external hardware control via DAW.
