Diatonic Harmonic Quantiser
The harmonàig is a four voice voltage quantiser designed with intuitive harmonic capabilities. It brings the possibility of composing and performing chord progressions, and harmonising in a polyphonic manner, to what is traditionally a monophonic instrument. No deep understanding of music theory is needed!
harmonàig | ˈhɑːməni | noun (musical tone) an overtone accompanying a fundamental tone at a fixed interval, the combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce a pleasing effect

Quickly sweep through modalities and chord voicings on-the-fly, and explore a vast array of harmonic tones and colours. Explore practical music theory in a familiar context and build your relationship with tonalities that suit your own personal style.
The modal music system is used by the harmonàig to allow immediate exploration of musical tonalities whilst keeping everything diatonically relevant. Inbuilt modal harmonisations give extensive foundations for a wide spectrum of tonalities, with additional capabilities for user defined chord voicings and note clusters, the creative options are endless.
In practice, users can experiment with chordal composition as quickly as they would a monophonic bass or lead line. All that’s needed are a few more oscillators!
