Harp Virtual Instrument
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.
Pure, Pristine Sounds
- Each string was sampled for the entire life of its natural decay.
- The sound of each string is sweet, pure, powerful, and dynamic with minimum crosstalk.
Full Range of Harp Articulations
- Traditional angelic-sounding harp plucks (gentle, soft, medium, and loud)
- Special effects include harmonics, Pres de la table and damping
- You can also perform chords, arpeggios, trills, tremolos, and bisbigliando.
- Unique built-in keymapping emulates the pedals of a harp so you can play realistic harp glissandi and arpeggios that can be performed in real time and customized to your music.
- Glisses are easily played in Garritan Harps by running one’s fingers up and down the keyboard.
