Garritan Harps is an innovative new virtual harps collection. This sound library is the next step in the revolution that GigaHarp started over a dozen years ago. Garritan Harps takes the virtual harp exponentially further. In addition to pure, pristine recordings of each note and a full range of harp articulations, new technologies give you advanced glissando emulation, sampled acoustic spaces, and much more.
Garritan Harps features a variety of harps including Salvi Pedal, Venus Concert Grand and Lyon & Healy. Innovative technologies allow you to easily bring beautiful harp sounds to your music. The Garritan Harps sampled sound library integrates the uniquely powerful and high-performance ARIA Player.
“Heart-stopping harp sampling….as the creator of the seminal GigaHarp GigaStudio library, Gary Garritan knows a thing or two about sampling harps….recorded using four harps – two Salvi Pedals, two Venus Concert Grands and a Lyon & Healy.”
“A set of six Dynamic and Performance controls come premapped to six MIDI CCs….excellent reverbs – algorithmic and convolution, the latter including some suitably ethereal and majestic harp-orientated presets….Activating Pedal mode brings another level of harping authenticity into play….”
“Our favourite is the Lyon & Healy, but they all sound magnificient and between them cover a broad tonal spectrum. If a virutal harp is on your shopping list, put this one at the top – it’s approachable, intuitive and sonically stunning.”
