AudioThing has introduced Bowed Harp – a new virtual instrument, based on samples from an autoharp played with a pick and an EBow.
Here’s an audio preview:
The autoharp is a string instrument similar to a zither. The EBow is a battery-powered electronic device for playing string instruments (like an electric guitar), producing a sound reminiscent of using a bow on the strings.
Bowed Harp lets you mix these two sources to create unique plucked and pad sounds. Both sources also feature a selection of 12 impulse responses (4 reverbs, 4 cabinets, 4 effects) to further mangle the sounds.
Bowed Harp is available now with an intro price of US $15 (normally $19).
