This library is a powerful completely multi-sample based full range 30-string acoustic harp guitar library. It offers truly nuanced single-note lead line playing, chord creation, rhythm building, gliss and strum performance, all with total real-time control and automation support. We sampled plucks, palm mutes, chokes, slides, glisses, scrapes, guitar body percussion and tons of other effects to fully capture every nuance of this exquisite instrument, with deep round-robin and velocity layering and total attention to detail.
It was recorded up close and dry, in wide stereo through a matched pair of large studio Neumann microphones and Sound Devices preamps for maximum tone, fidelity and clarity. This also gives you the power to shape the sound to work in any arrangement and mix.
We sampled a custom-designed harp guitar commissioned by classical guitarist Brad Hoyt. This unique instrument, titled the “Arpa Viola Caipira”, is the result of a four year design and construction process with master luthier Stephen Sedgwick from the U.K, based on Brad’s concept drawings. With a massive and lush tone, wide key range, rich bass and pristine highs, it takes the entire concept of an acoustic guitar to new frontiers.
Brad Hoyt’s Harp Guitar library gives you deep round-robin variation, responsive dynamic layering, world-class programming, true legato, auto-strumming, chord-buidling, adaptive arpeggiation, custom tuning and tons of other exclusive features. It’s 11.8 GB installed, with 4,203 samples and a powerful GUI to fit your workflow and inspire your creativity.
