An expertly sampled percussion and effects instrument library capturing the heart and soul of the waterphone. Waterphones — also commonly known as Water Harps — are played by strumming, striking and bowing these tines, which resonate together creating darkly harmonic or dissonant tones and textures. Waterharp features the instrument being played with different mallets, sticks, metal rods, fingers and palms, bows and even voices, both empty and full of water.
The Soundiron Waterharp is a deeply multi-sampled percussion and effects instrument library that captures the heart and soul of the waterphone. This unique instrument concept was originally developed by Richard Waters in the late 1960s. Waterphones — also commonly known as Water Harps — are found in all shapes and sizes, but they generally follow the same basic design: a brass vessel with a hollow brass water chamber and a long neck.
