  1. Been watching a lot of videos to learn more on the Subharmonicon and it’s potential use for my music and though I told myself no more hardware purchases…I have decided it is just too freaking amazing, and definitely will be be adding one to my rack.

    1. Same. For me its the sequencer that really seals the deal, its very easy for my simple brain to get round, and the sequencer seems stupidly powerful.

  2. Its funny to hear solid, lively pieces like this and compare them with the noises that came from the first Moogs. They drifted a major third if you even breathed on them. Now everything is locked right in and chaos is something you add when YOU want it. I got seduced by software, but I really like the DFAM. Run it through a double delay & rock the house for a week.

    1. Hi Dave, Having a mixture trautonium I’m interested to see positive comments from people regarding subharmonics. It’s a peculiar but fascinating feeling to play chords that can be massively wrong-ola in terms of equal temperament, yet as you point out, consistently so. Lower odd numbered subharmonic chords can really ‘buzz’ as the beats are so fast. One can compensate for this by use of the nebenton generator, or side oscillator and also produce major intervals. Sounds well on acidic material here.
      Some examples of my own endeavours:
