Vienna Symphonic Library has released Synchron Harp. This is what they have to say about it...
The harp is a supremely beautiful instrument, that is also very complex. Even some of the greatest classical composers often found it difficult to write for the harp and its multi-faceted possibilities. The instrument is equally challenging to play. It's almost impossible to master a demanding piece just by sight-reading, requiring adequate time to prepare and work out the pedaling. On the other hand, a harp can achieve sounds no other instrument can approach, particularly in the hands of a master player in an ideal acoustic environment.
With Tina Žerdin, long-time harpist of the Synchron Stage Orchestra, a wonderful Lyon & Healy Style 30 Concert Grand harp placed in the large hall of Synchron Stage Vienna, and the talent of Chief Recording Engineer Bernd Mazagg, we knew we had all of the elements put in place to create the best possible recordings.
But the idea was also to help you, composers and music creators, to write for this instrument and to play it authentically on the keyboard. Our goal was to create a software instrument with a user interface that lets you play sophisticated harp pieces, even with average keyboard skills.
Enter the Synchron Harp Player. In Chromatic Mode you can play the harp just like any other keyed instrument. In Pedal Mode the software recreates the pedaling mechanism and the scale possibilities of a real harp. The harp's seven strings of each octave are represented by the white keys of the keyboard. Thus, playing a glissando is as easy as gliding your fingers over the white keys as you would on a real harp's strings.
