This is not just "good for free," it's good period. If you want a good harp, get this and you are done looking.

Rather than using this VST, it's more convenient to load the SoundFont version into the TX16Wx and use it. After that, I use a frequency equalizer compressor etc. to get closer to the feeling of the sound of QLSO.

It sounds fantastic. This and the kontakt chinese harp, that was free some time ago, are my favorite stringed instrument plugins. this one has a lot of depth to the sound, so it doesn't sound thin or flat. The pan is great if you are looping the same sound. I use an external reverb on anything that has reverb built in for more control and to use more reverb than this instrument allows. Tt sounds beautiful.

With this being free, I am extremely impressed. It sounds better than some harps I actually purchased. Even if it does have a bit of a processed sonic quality, this is a blessing considering it costs ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

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".

C2 is slightly out of tune but yeah, it's awesome !

If that bugs you, you can use the SFZ version and type 'tune=[+/-][number of cents]' into the <region> for the relative sample and thus change intonation of any notes you aren't happy with. SFZ version is available on the Versilian Studios website. :)

I cant get it to work. I have the FL studio 20 Demo and downloaded the right one and followed instructions as shown. If someone could help that'd be awesome!

Hello again, I got really excited and immediately went to track a song with the new Harp here. Next to the guitars and bass it's a bit flat, as most VST orchestrals tend to be for some reason. My question is dumb: Is there a way to increase the pitch by a few cents in EWHarpII? I use SonarX3Producer to track now, and I see nothing to help there. Thank you so much in advance for any insight you can share <3

You could either tune your guitars/bass a little lower, or you could automate the pitch wheel/pitch bend to be slightly up on the EWHarp II MIDI track. Some experimenting will reveal how much to raise the pitch bend value.

You could add reverb and loads of time decay around 20 seconds that brings life into the track

The directions say it comes with an installer. There is none. Everytime I try to bring it up it says "Cannot find instument". Where should i add ".mse" file?

You need to copy the .dll file and .instruments folder together into the desired location. Keep the .mse inside the .instruments folder. The instructions are at the bottom of Etherealwinds' letter (HarpNote_VST.pdf or HarpNote_AU.pdf).

That doesnt make a difference though, the same message shows.

If you're using Windows and you keep your VST files somewhere under the Program Files folder, this can happen. Had the same thing happen to me, but not on all instruments. Moved my entire VST folder out of the Program Files folder and made it a subfolder off the root (C:). After that, just tell your DAW where to find your VST files. This worked for me!

Guys, it's so awesome that we have access to such great sounding, easy to use things such as this -- and for FREE! I never would have dreamed of it 20 years ago. Everything they make is awesome, including their orchestral VST. I think its called VSCO or something like that. Much, much better than most (all?) other free orchestral VSTi plugins. 5/5
