Sonic Zest has announced the release of a new Kontakt instrument library. Temple Lyre delivers the sounds of a deeply sampled 13-string harp.

The Lyre is an ancient U-shaped harp originating from Ancient Greece. We recorded the full range of a beautiful 13-string instrument and have programmed it into this highly playable Kontakt instrument.

We collaborated with the world-renowned Lyre expert, Kleopas, to capture this beautiful recording. Temple Lyre would be perfect for any composer looking to produce film or TV music in need of a mystic and ancient sound.

The Temple Lyre is on sale at Sonic Zest for the intro price of $16 USD until January 17th (regular $32 USD). It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.
