About

Cinesamples is proud to present our workhorse harp library with a fresh tune up and a new paint job – presenting CineHarp 1.1.

New GUI – New Features:

Time Locked Glissandi

The glissandi patches now have tempo awareness through Kontakt and your sequencer.  Now CineHarp and Hollywoodwinds can work together in perfect unison.

Custom Reverb Positioning

We’ve included three impulse responses from our private collection for exclusive use with cineharp. Allowing one click typical wide orchestral positioning (Left or Right) or more soloist-type positioning at the center.

Plucking Arpeggiator/Repetition Scripting:

If you enjoy making your own glissandi you can activate the tempo syncing arpeggatior on the tri-layeredpluck patch to maximum effect, its very simple and fun to use.  Employ two fingers to get a glissandi of custom length (between finger one and two). Note that these are entirely different from the hundreds of recorded glissandi in the glissandi patch.  The new repetition scripting does well to mask any machine gunning which might occur.

One – Keyswitchable – Glissandi Patch

A real space saver!  Now all the scale tunings in the glissandi section are attached to a keyswitch and a knob.  The knob can be controlled by any midi fader on your midi controller also.  We love saving virtual real estate! This was our must requested feature and we are happy to give it to you.

We also included other features like Notation View Wallpaper, noise reduction, three band EQ and more.

A Few Words from an Industry Leading Composer:

“I have only just started using Cineharp Glissandi and I find them extremely valuable.  The library provides enough variety of scales to pretty much cover the gamut of useful harp glis’s.  This is a very practical library and these samples are already finding their ways into my recordings.”

Garry Schyman (Dante’s Inferno, Bio Shock series)

In CineHarp  you get glissandi in five scale tunings in all keys:

  • Major
  • Harmonic Minor
  • Whole Tone
  • Diminished Scale
  • Half Diminished / Dominant 9

Each scale tuning was sampled in a variety of glissandi styles with mod wheel controlling the length of glissando:

  • Straight Up (Short, Medium, Long)
  • Straight Down (Long)
  • Swirled Up (Short, Medium, Long)
  • Ad Lib (Gentle up/down, Swirly, w/ nail)

In addition to all that, each glissandi style was sampled in forte and piano dynamics, controlled by velocity. The possibilites are endless!

The Included Pluck Patch is the instrumental companion to CineHarp Glissandi, recorded in the same studio with the same harpist. It is a three layer, full ranged patch It has a very warm and courtly tone, and like CineHarp it is recorded mostly dry with a touch of hall mics. This mix allows for integration with templates of all sorts.

“CineHarp Glissandi is extremely flexible with its speed control, and it couldn’t be easier to use. The sound fits perfectly into my mixes and lends a realism that can’t be beat.”

- John Davis 
Composer / Music Editor, The Producers, The Nanny Diaries, Cinema Paradiso

“Very good sound. I like the low end on the palm FX. It’s also great to be able to control the gliss speeds with the mod wheel.”

- A.G. 
Composer

“The CineSamples Harp Glissandi have a very live sound to them. The recording is quite detailed, but also has nice air and energy in the high end. The glisses sit surprisingly well in context with the orchestra and take well to reverb. I also really like the programming. You can load up a single patch and have access to a full set of glisses for all keys instead of loading up individual sets by key. This library stands on its own and is also a great compliment to other harp glissandi libraries. It definitely covers some new ground. It’s great having both the piano and forte dyamic.”

- Colin O'Malley 
Superman Returns Game, Orchestrator for Yanni

“I wanted to drop you a note to say how much I have been enjoying the “CineHarp” sample library…Since there are so many choices, I have found this to be my new go-to-sound set when it comes to Harp Glisses.”

- James L. Venable
