But PS-5 is the best cheap intelligent harmonizer you’re gonna find.

ps-3 mode 7 is "post rock" heaven if your play style accommodates it. I have a digiverb on gated setting pre-fuzz, and ps-3 post-fuzz (& a bunch of other stuff to be sure). I keep the settings around noon, & just shift slightly brighter.

Ok, Tha ks for the answers. How about the output? Does the clean signal lose somethin in the Pitch fork or in the Boss PS-5?

Not sure about the answer to the last question (though I previously owned the PS-2/3/5), but wondering if anyone knows what the PS-2 trimpots do.

Looking at the schematic it seems they are fine tuners for the pitch, probably not worth messing with

PS2 has a smooth sweep on the pitch shift. Back when it came out Boss intended users to plug a tuner into the tuner out, which was just a straight oscillator feed, in order to set the pitch they wanted. The trims are factory set to make the pitch accurate at the mid point and either end of the sweep.
