What is it about Harvestman stuff that makes you all such fans of their modules above all others?
Both of the Double Andore's are the best VCA's in eurorack. There's a few that have come out recently that are interesting, cárn from Instruō, Morph 4 by Joranalogue, and even Javelin from WMD is kinda cool, but none of them can do what the Andore's can which is the insane levels of cross-modulation. That you also get great function generators with each of those VCA's that can be totally independent really makes them shine. There's a reason why you never see them last long when available.
Tyme Sefari is just special, especially the mk1. Even the mk2 was utterly unique until the Data Bender came out and shares a lot of similarities, but even still I'd take a mk2 Tyme Sefari over a Data Bender.
Bionic Lester, both mk1 and mk3 are great for different reasons. I really regret selling my mk1 but thankfully I was able to get the last Synchrodyne which makes things more bearable and if all the mk3 had was the comb filter I'd still be all over it. That it gives you everything else along with the mk3 preset manager makes it a desert island filter.
Both the Kermit's are great for their own reason. The mk2 can be a pseudo pll along with being a dual LFO that can internally modulate each other simultaneously. The mk3 is one of the best modulators in all of eurorack with all of it's features.
And then lets talk utility with the King Slender. Do you need a slew limiter? A VCA? A 3 channel audio mixer with polarization on one channel for summing a stereo signal? A 3 channel trigger/gate combiner with level control for modules that utilize that (Steady State Gate comes to mind) along with the ability to mute those gates? Just 8hp gets you all that.
Then there's weird shit like the Zorlon Cannon's, Malgorithm's, and the mk1 Stillson Hammer.
I haven't even talked about the oscillators yet which someone else can do.
