Embertone has introduced a new virtual instrument to join the Whiskey Series Mountain Dulcimer.

Designed to sound like a bluesy, gritty country harmonica, the Honkytonk Harmonica captures the nuances of professional harmonica player Andy John.

We set out to create a virtual harmonica with a honkytonk soul… stylistically faithful to the country and blues music originating from old-time southern bars of the past. In other words: a twangy virtual harmonica that stands on its own, whether you’re backing up the band, or soloing over it.

Trigger real, sampled vibrato performances for the extra realism, or intimately control our modeled vibrato engine instead. Go between “Normal” and “Bluesy” legato styles, and dig into an array of user controls and specialized articulation to craft a totally legit harmonica performance. We can’t wait to see what you can create with this expressive virtual harmonica!

Available for the full version of Kontakt 6.7 or higher, Honkytonk Harmonica is on sale for the intro price of $39 USD until January 1st, 2023 (regular $49 USD).
