AudioThing has announced the release of Bowed Harp, a Kontakt library that features samples from an autoharp played with a pick and an EBow.

AudioThing Bowed Harp

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.

Bowed Harp features

  • 14 Kontakt Instruments (.nki).
  • 5 Round Robin samples.
  • 3 Velocity layers.
  • 160 Samples (44.1kHz / 24Bit).
  • Formats: Kontakt and WAV.

Bowed Harp for Kontakt 5.5.1 (full version) or higher is available for purchase for the introductory price of 15 EUR/USD until January 18th, 2016 (regular 19 EUR/USD).
