Infinite Glissandos – a first for samples harps
The very reason we decided to embark in sampling a concert harp in 2012 was to achieve a flexibility unknown in sampled harps. The sound of harps is unmistakably linked to the Glissando technique, where the harpist runs her/his fingers across the strings creating a dreamy and catchy sound unique to the instrument.
Our Glissando engine lets you play Glissandos at any speed, in any tonal center and setting playable on a real harp.
Any Tuning, any Scale, any Chord
When using the Glissando Mode you’re left with only the white keys (as the harp features 7 strings per octave) and change the tuning of each string by switching the positions of the Pedals via MIDI or GUI. We created a selection of the most used tunings in the section on the right to give you a quick way to get the Glissando you want.
Speed and Intensity
Turn on Glissando Mode, play a starting note, then play an ending note. The Glissando starts right away. Press D#0 to stop or C#0 to quit Glissando mode.
The time difference between the two notes will tell the engine the speed of the Glissando. The relative velocities will be used to create eventual crescendos and decrescendos.
