Getting Started

Harmonia is possibly the most unique Cherry Audio instrument thus far. Its multi-harmonic, interpolating scanned oscillators are really simple to understand, yet capable of creating wildly elaborate evolving soundscapes that recall the vector and wavesequencing-style sounds of the 80s and 90s, with a far simpler user interface.

Its two oscillators may look a little unfamiliar, but as you'll see, taking a few moments to familiarize yourself with their operation will open a vast array of possibilities... and to put it bluntly, Harmonia is a heck of a lot of fun.

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, we recommend thoroughly exploring the Oscillator 1 & 2 section of this guide. If you're experienced with classic analog synthesizers, the rest of Harmonia will be familiar and probably won't require reading the manual.

Pre-Purchase Demo Mode

If you haven't purchased the full version of Harmonia, it will run in demo mode. All functions will work, but inharmonic tones will occasionally sound (the LED next to Demo in the top toolbar will illuminate when the ugly tones are sounding). We've also added a handy button to make purchasing easy, so you've got no excuse! As you might expect, all this demo nonsense disappears once Harmonia is purchased.

Technical Assistance

Cherry Audio's unique online store and automatic updating should make operation a smooth experience, but if you run into any issues or have questions, you can discuss issues online at the Cherry Audio forums at:
