Music Studio weyrerTon from Innsbruck, Austria, has launched a Kontakt instrument library featuring a rare harp with an alternative and unique sound.

The Tyrolean Harp offers a colorful range of emotions, from beautiful and soft to harsh and brutal.

The library was created in collaboration with the skilled harpist Christine Gundolf.

The keys are played on a harp made by Peter Petutschnig, which is a modern classic under the Tyrolean Folk Harps.

We recorded the harp in the weyrerTon Studio One’s dead room – a 13 square meter recording room with professional acoustic treatment. To capture every detail of this instrument, six microphones in three different positions were used for the recording.

Tyrolean Harp features

  • 3 different styles: Pluck, Nail, Harmonic​.
  • Mix 3 microphone positions: Close, Width, Room.
  • 3,384 samples, 15.2 GB uncompressed .Waw.
  • 9.2 GB lossless compressed NCW.
  • Recorded In 96kHz, available in 96kHz & 48 kHz.
  • Compatible with Kontakt Player (free version).
  • Full NKS integration.

The harp library is available for 120 EUR at the weyrerTon website.
