Soundiron has announced the release of Elysium Harp, a Kontakt instrument library featuring a 47-string grand concert pedal harp.
This is a beautifully playable virtual instrument for the free Kontakt Player and NI’s Komplete Kontrol S-Series Keyboards. We recorded this massive Lyon & Healy bronze harp in exquisite detail, with extended articulation choices, advanced controls, easy play-assist features and warm, clear presence across the entire key range.
The main preset covers Finger Plucks with long sustains, deep round-robin and dynamic layering for each string. We also recorded Hard Fingernail plucks, Harmonics, Xylophonics, Bass Pedal Buzzes, plus a wide collection of natural Live Glisses in 19 scales and styles by harpist Jennifer Ellis. You’ll find lots of custom ambiences, pads and unique FX presets created with the harp source to open up limitless sound design possibilities.
You also have access to 3 stereo mic positions (sound board, rear ports & room) to freely mix and route, plus an advanced real-time gliss and arpeggiator sequencers, instant pedal presets for easy glissing and arpeggios, precise tone and presence shaping and a full FX rack for total creative freedom.
Elysium Harp contains 12,147 samples and over 30GB of wav content. The library is compressed to 14.7 GB with NI’s lossless .ncw audio format for greater resource efficiency. It works in Kontakt or Kontakt Player version 5.5.2 and later.
Elysium Harp is available for the the introductory price of $99 USD until December 1st, 2016 (regular $149 USD).
