Ivy is a polyphonic note CV Harmonizer, which is a type of instrument utility device. It listens to the notes you play via MIDI or CV, and creates and a new set of notes to musically harmonize with the original notes you played.
Connect Ivy up to two of your favourite Reason instruments via separate Gate/Note CV outputs to create harmonizing musical parts from a single MIDI track. You may also use multiple instances of Ivy together to build chords by combining them, or daisy-chaining them together.
You can program Ivy to create rules for harmony, which will determine the musical pitch relationship that exists between the original notes you play, and the new notes that Ivy generates. Ivy lets the user select a global harmonizing interval for any notes received, or by enabling 'Advanced Mode' instead, the user may select a unique harmonizing interval for each of the twelve musical notes.
Be creative; much is possible when every harmony layer has it's own signal path in the rack!
