Harvestman – Hertz Donut Overview

Harvestman Hertz Donut Dual Oscillator

Primary Oscillator
3 waveforms: Sine, Triangle, Saw, and Pulse which has it’s own dedicated output and requires the Destination button to be held for it to activate.
All waveforms can be affected by the Waveform Discontinuity knob which is a waveshaper
To enable FM on the attenuated Frequency jack for the primary oscillator, hold down the Primary waveform select button.
All lights on = Linear
No lights = Exponential
Sync In for external audio rate signals

Modulator Oscillator
3 waveforms: Sine Triangle, Saw and can be LO (LFO) or (HI) Audio Rate modes.
Like Primary, Pulse has it’s own dedicated output.
Destination sends the modulator signal to the selected parameter. Frequency, Shape, and Amp.
Modulation Index determines the amount of signal being applied to the modulation.
Like Primary, to enable FM on the attenuated Frequency Jack, hold down Mod
XOR output.
To activate the XOR output hold the Destination button until XOR is lit.
Tracking determines how accurately the modulation finds the target: Bad, Worse, Stupid.
