STRINGS OF THE EAST, SOUL OF THE WEST
Includes both traditional strummed and expanded polyphonic variations
Deeply sampled (20,000+ samples), including unique playing techniques
Extensive sound design potential delivers new tones to any genre
Our goal in developing Nagoya Harp was to create an instrument that would satisfy both the traditionalist and modern producer, providing the accurate and convincing sound of the classical instrument while also delving into new territory with expanded playing techniques, performance scripts and effects to inspire musicians of all backgrounds. With over 20,000 samples, Nagoya Harp is a collection that transcends genre, created for those with an affinity for beautiful traditional tones and contemporary explorers of the avant garde.
The effect system in Nagoya Harp provides incredible sound-shaping power, from high-quality convolution and algorithmic reverb, creative effects like drive, chorus, phaser and delay, and a 3-band EQ to help you quickly balance the sound in your mix. This takes an already dynamic and expressive instrument and opens the door to everything from pure acoustic sound in natural spaces to powerful, guitar-like tones and ambient, washed-out drones. Quickly jump through the included presets to find inspiration or dive in and design your own sounds within the neatly-arranged and powerful user interface.
Multiple playing styles are available, combining an exhaustive and detailed sample library with innovative performance scripts to accurately reproduce strumming movements and harmonic interaction. Recordings were made with plectrum, bow, sticks, palm muting, hammer-ons and pull-offs, multiple una corda configurations and tunings, providing everything from natural and expressive melodic progressions and rhythmic arpeggios to primal, modulating harmonic drones. Multiple mics were used to capture each sample, including a Royer SF-24, Neumann U67 and Bruel & Kjaer 4006; all of which are presented with discrete level control for ultimate flexibility.
Whether you're a classically-trained musician looking for an expressive and responsive instrument, a composer looking for authentic timbres, or a modern producer looking for new and innovative sounds, Nagoya Harp is a deceptively deep and flexible instrument ready to deliver the most detailed acoustic string plucks, shimmering harmonic vistas and everything between.
Designed to go beyond the traditional sounds and playing styles, KEYS expands on the STRUM version with a number of playing techniques including Una Corda High-String, Una Corda Low-String, Palm Muted, Sticks and Bowed. An additional page of controls provides a 4-stage amplitude envelope, along with multimode filter, stereo unison and alternate options, a mono/poly switch with pitch glide and quick mappings for the modwheel of your controller keyboard. KEYS takes this traditional instrument into new territory, creating varied and experimental sounds covering a wide gamut from violin-like to ambient pads, guitar tones to percussive.
