eth-harpsVersilian Studios has announced the release of Etherealwinds Harps, a free virtual instrument (VST and Kontakt) featuring a diatonic folk harp recorded by the Newgrounds musician Etherealwinds.

This is a sampling of a diatonic folk harp recorded by the Newgrounds musician Etherealwinds. Folk/lever harps differ from their big orchestral brothers by having a smaller range, and additionally by the functionality of their tuning system. On a pedal harp, the orchestral staple, levers at the base, activated by foot, control all the notes of the same variety (so if you change C to C#, all the C’s are sharped). However, on lever harps, each note has an independent “sharping lever”, which can raise that particular note by a half step.

This system only allows a halfstep of motion- each octave has to be sharpened if it is desired. In addition, the smaller body of the lever harp gives it a different overall tone than their big brothers.

Features:

  • Diatonically sampled, 2x RR, 3 velocity layers
  • Celtic Lever/Folk Harp with a delicate, warm tone
  • Full Decays Sampled
  • Played and recorded by Newgrounds musician Etherealwinds

Etherealwinds Harps comes in two versions: instrument plugin for Windows & Mac (VST/ AU) and Kontakt 4 or 5. The freebie is available for instant download at Versilian Studios.
