Cinematique-Instruments Grand Harp KONTAKT
The Grand Harp or better known as Concert Harp or Pedal harp is a large modern harp, designed primarily for classical music. The Grand Harp is a descendant of ancient harps such as a Celtic Nylon Harp. The harp found its early orchestral use as a solo instrument in concerti by many baroque and classical composers. It began to be used in symphonic music by Hector Berlioz.

The Grand Harp has a wide range of tones which is six and a half octaves (47 strings) starting typically from C 1 and ends up at G 7. The lowest strings are made of copper or steel-wound nylon, the middle-lower strings of gut, and the middle to highest of nylon, or more or all gut.

AudioThing Bowed Harp KONTAKT AudioThing Bowed Harp KONTAKT
Bowed Harp features samples from an autoharp played with a pick and an EBow. The autoharp is a string instrument similar to a zither. The EBow is a battery-powered electronic device for playing string instruments (like an electric guitar), producing a sound reminiscent of using a bow on the strings. Bowed Harp lets you mix these two sources to create unique plucked and pad sounds. Both sources also feature a selection of 12 impulse responses (4 reverbs, 4 cabinets, 4 effects) to further mangle the sounds.

We developed Angelic Harp in collaboration with Guy Randle of Rosewood Recording Company, who engineered and oversaw the sampling session. Angelic Harp is an extensively sampled 47-string concert harp, played by harpist Alex Bigney from the Celtic group Kirkmount.

We always aim to recreate the playability of the real instrument as closely as possible. For example, each string on the harp is individually modeled, mimicking the monophonic nature of each string. This allows you to soften loud plucks with subsequent soft plucks. It also prevents the unnatural, excessive tonal build-up that many synthesized harps exhibit when playing glissandos and repeated notes. The adjustable preroll samples capture all the subtle fingernail noises that occur before the main pluck sound of the strings, adding a lot of depth and realism to the harp tone.
