Orange Tree Samples releases Angelic Harp for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples has announced the release of Angelic Harp, a harp instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Orange Tree Samples Angelic Harp

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

Each string on the harp is individually modeled, mimicking the monophonic nature of each string. This allows a user 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 pre-roll samples are designed to capture the subtle fingernail noises that occur before the main pluck sound of the strings, providing additional depth and realism to the harp’s tone.

Angelic Harp features

  • 7 GB of 24-bit samples.
  • Up to 7x round-robin with four dynamics.
  • Playable glissando.
  • Separate close and room mic signals.
  • Additional harmonics articulation.

The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of $59 USD until December 31st, 2014 (regular $89 USD). Requires full version of Kontakt 4 or 5.
