Cinematique Instruments Autoharp | 128MB
The AUTOHARP is a stringed instrument having a series of chord bars, when depressed, mute all the strings other than those that form the desired chord. Despite its name, the autoharp is not a harp вЂ“ ItВґs a chorded zither. ItВґs a perfect instrument to give your music a subtile highlighted shape.
Every single one of the 36 strings of the autoharp was recorded in two different sessions (with different mic-settings), giving us two different sample sets. We also recorded all chords (major, 7th and minor) in legato mode, each in in 2 velocity layers and 5(!) times Round Robin as separate up and downstrokes variations. With the ModWheel you can control the amount of the chord glissando to get an authentic and vivid strumming feeling. We also added a script to control the amount of reverb.
As a bonus weвЂ™re also giving another draft chord patch, which contains suspended chords variatons (without the third) which are in gated mode вЂ“ giving an effect similar to slicing in 5 times Round Robin. There are also suspended chords as single glissando variations and some вЂћscaryвЂњ random picking textures.
