Meticulous sampling results in pure, pristine sound

By using advanced sampling techniques, Garritan has ensured that you get nothing but pure, pristine sound. Each string in the Garritan Harps virtual instrument was sampled for the entire life of its natural decay, resulting in remarkably beautiful tone - no matter how long a note is sustained. The sound of each string is sweet, pure, powerful, and dynamic with a minimum of crosstalk.

Full range of articulations for remarkable realism

With the Garritan Harps virtual instrument, you get traditional, angelic-sounding harp plucks (gentle, soft, medium, and loud), allowing you to create remarkably realistic and expressive performances. On top of that, you can get even more expressive by adding chords, arpeggios, trills, tremolos, and bisbigliando to your performances. You can even add special effects such as harmonics, pres de la table, and damping.

Built-in keymapping allows for realistic glissandi

The unique keymapping built into the Garritan Harps virtual instrument 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. You can easily play glissandi in Garritan Harps by running your fingers up and down the keyboard.

Garritan loves the harp - and it shows

Gary Garritan began playing the harp as a child and developed an electronic MIDI harp as soon as he became acquainted with sampling technology. On a quest to create high-quality harp samples for his own compositions, Gary developed the GigaHarp - one of the very first independent and detailed libraries for the then revolutionary GigaSampler. The Garritan Harps virtual instrument is a continuing testament to Gary's lifelong love affair with this beautiful instrument.

Garritan Harps Virtual Instrument Features:
  • Includes a variety of harps: Salvi Pedal, Venus Concert Grand, and Lyon & Healy
  • Each string was meticulously sampled for pure, pristine sound
  • Full range of articulations for remarkable expression and realism
  • Built-in keymapping allows for realistic glissandi
  • Realistic sampled spaces give you a plethora of perspectives and flexibility
  • Bundled with ARIA player - no need to purchase a separate sampler
The Garritan Harps virtual instrument will imbue your compositions with the heavenly essence of the harp!
