You have two filter sections, actually, a simple low-pass in each of the Harmonic Generator sections, and then a multimode VCF with independent outputs for LPF, BPF, and HPF, which can be modulated using a very simple envelope or an LFO.
It's so hard to find a good hardware additive synthesizer with a great interface.
The Interface is lovely. If only they had incorporated some more modulation routings (like oscillator crossmod), more elaborate envelopes, another LFO, and a ringmodulator...

There is some RMI Harmonic Synthesizer stuff to be found here:

Well, yes... that's a great linear interface... but if it's outputting anything but sine waves, and it doesn't have complex envelopes for each harmonic... it's ultimately worthless.

Crossmod has nothing to do with additive synthesis. LFO, again, worthless. Ring modulator? Dude, you're not looking for an additive synth at all.
