The Harvestman - Piston Honda MkII


Piston Honda is a Wavetable oscillator with variable interpolation resolution. Two ROMs are onboard, each containing 256 waveforms in 16 banks. Waves may be smoothly morphed or violently jumped in two dimensions. It's up to you. The degree of discontinuity these waveform changes is voltage controllable.
Instead of using the internal Piston for waveform lookup, why not plug in an external oscillator or anything else? You can also use a gate input to instantly toggle between ROM chips.
An optional expansion board provides six more ROM sockets for use with Blacet/Wiard-format waveform data. Use wave256 software to write your own data. Plans for getting that data onto our little EEPROMs will be posted soon.



4096 wave forms with 8Bit resolution, arranged in a 16x16x16 cube. You an blend between the waves manually with faders and voltage controlled by three CV inputs with bipolar attenuators. The morphing can be deactivated if desired or you can change it's resolution.
The frequency control section has a 1V/ocatve input, a CV input (0-5V) and a FM input (10Vpp). Sync is available as well, of course.
The internal waveform memory comes fully loaded, and the last six locations, 256 waves in total, may be overwritten with the user's custom waveforms (edited by Wave256 software) using the classic Piston Honda Expander board.
External audio signals can be processed by the Piston honda's wavetables, while the internal oscillator is running.
