Cherry Audio Harmonia Synthesizer


Melodic Transmutations

Harmonia is the latest wildly innovative virtual instrument from Cherry Audio, designed to easily create rich, evolving polyphonic tones through its intuitive visual interface.

The magic behind Harmonia lies in its two sample-based oscillators. Using techniquessimilar to those found in additive synthesis, each Harmonia oscillator cansimultaneously produce up to eight pitches, individually tuned to a harmonic series orsemitones. The volume for each pitch harmonic can be fixed or dynamic, andHarmonia’s uniqueinterpolated harmonic scanningenables dramatic sweeps andmelodious sequences through a single modulatable slider.

Harmonia derives its distinctive organic sound from hundreds of sampled wave forms recorded from various synthesizers, traditional instruments and voices, colorful “lo-fi”sounds, and more. User samples can be imported, further expanding Harmonia’s tonal palette. Producers can effortlessly create unique morphed and sequencer-like tones by varying the combinations of waveform selection and harmonic presets.

Harmonia reaches new heights by providing four syncable LFOs, an expansive multimode filter, click-and-drag envelopes, and a massive mod matrix with eight slots for dozens of sources and destinations. Harmonia includes support for aftertouch, flexible MIDI mapping, and a collection of over 350 breathtaking, professionally designed presets. Harmonia also has 17 studio-quality effects such as distortion, chorus, phaser, echoes, reverbs, and more-all fully modulatable through the matrix.
