Scandinavian Keyed Strings For Kontakt

Soniccouture releases Nyckelharpas Kontakt Player NKS virtual instrument      26/10/18

Soniccouture has released Nyckelharpas: Scandinavian Keyed Strings for Kontakt Player and NKS.

A spokesperson told us, "Familiar yet somehow different, the sound of the Nyckelharpa walks a delicate line. Ancient and totally modern. The nyckelharpa has its roots back in the middle ages. Literally translated the name means keyed-fiddle in Swedish. The pitch of the notes is altered by pressing a wooden key, which frets the string. Featuring viola + cello tuned nyckelharpas, Soniccoutures' modelling dismantles the sound of this fascinating instrument, and rebuilds it with detailed user control over every element."


  • Viola & Cello models
  • Bowed & Pizzicato With Anti-Repeat
  • 2 mic channels: Close, Room
  • Key noise + sympathetic resonance
  • 7GB Library | Kontakt Player compatible


Pricing and Availability:
€129 / $139 / £119.
Until 26th November you can get 30% off Nyckelharpas at the Soniccouture Website.
