Etherealwinds Harp 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.
  • Diatonically sampled, 2x RR, 3 velocity layers.
  • Celtic Lever/Folk Harp with a delicate, warm tone.
  • Full Decays Sampled.
  • Samples are mono (Kontakt version includes faux stereo width option).
  • NKI version included.

One of the best harps out there. Add some reverb and it sounds fantastic for orchestral/fantasy music etc.

It didn't seem to work on macOS Catalina but I solved it like this: click Cancel (not Move to Trash), open System Preferences, click on "Security & Privacy" and "Allow Anyway".

I'm on FL Studio 12 and it works fine. I'm pretty sure that's the latest version.

The directions say it comes with an installer. There is none. Everytime I try to bring it up it says "Cannot find instument"

Extract the whole zip content in your vst folder. If it says "cannot find instrument" it means that the plugin can't locate the .mse file in its folder

I love it! It sounds like a celtic harp :))) use a very good masterkeyboard for good attack and response, a must have, very easy to install on Magix Samp Studio 16.

I love the product but the 64 bit does not load if you open a saved project that has the file in it.

Suono mono, é un arpa piccola, non orchestrale, ed il sound è molto simile ad un suono general midi. Insomma decente ma non eccezionale.
