View Full Version : GPO Harp piece

12-03-2003, 11:31 PM
Hi Everyone-

I just received my copy of GPO and I thought hearing some of the individual instruments might answer a few questions about the quality of the orchestra. (By the way it IS great!)

This is a small work for harp in a \"perpetual motion\" style I wrote for a piano student of mine who also played harp.

This is using Chromatic Harp 2, and it is Out-of-the-Box.

P.S. Thanks to Gary and Marianne for getting it to me.

The Harp sounds very good and should sit well in an orchestration. Still waiting for my copy. Can\'t wait.

Really like the piece and the sample. I can\'t wait to start making demos. Hope I get mine soon.

Very nice indeed! images/icons/smile.gif

So for the price of two times the XSample harp disc you also get another harp, an organ, a piano,... and... an orchestra? images/icons/grin.gif

Very nice indeed - did you use the ambiance plug? It sounded like there was a bit of reverb - or is that ambiance part of the sound?

The Harp is in the \"wet\" section of the instruments section. I didn\'t add any reverb.

This is just as it is.

Very nice piece!

There are 2 harps. The harp in the piece has a slightly brighter and more piercing quality than harp 1 which is also very nice sounding. I\'ve had fun mixing the 2 different harps together.

The Wet samples use the reverb built into the Kontakt player. The Dry samples have no reverb. The reverb in Kontakt has a tendency to use a lot of CPU power as it does it per instrument.

Very nice that ....I just wanted to have some strings or something coming in at some point. Still stands on its own though.


I got my GPO tonight....Hooray!
