Our friend Randy Bowser “rbowser” has shared a new sampled instrument the AUTOHARP. He as designed this SFZ based instrument specifically for use with the Garritan ARIA Player. But since this is all SFZ it will also work with Cakewalk Dimension Pro, Rapture, and others.
Above is the Autoharp I’ve had since the early 1970’s. It’s in excellent condition. I’ve sampled it thoroughly, and programmed an Autoharp virtual instrument for the Garritan ARIA Player. It’s the most complex SFZ instrument I’ve so far put together.
- 528 24 bit samples.
- All 127 MIDI notes – 10 1/2 octaves of sound.
- SEVEN ARTICULATION LAYERS for each chord.
- Release samples on all chords.
- Pick noise controlled by Mod Wheel.
- Automatic damping noise controlled by Sustain Pedal.
- Three octaves of single notes plus alternates.
- Six octaves of chords.
- Open string strums for atmospheric pads.
- Other effects – key noises, plucks, etc.
