Etherealwinds Harp is a Free VST / Audio Unit & Kontakt Harp instrument. The Etherealwinds Harp features the sounds of a diatonic folk harp recorded by the Newgrounds Musician Etherealwind.
This is a sampling of a diatonic folk harp recorded by the Newgrounds musician Etherealwinds. Folk/lever harps differ from their big orchestral brothers by having a smaller range, and additionally by the functionality of their tuning system.
On a pedal harp, the orchestral staple, levers at the base, activated by foot, control all the notes of the same variety (so if you change C to C#, all the C’s are sharped). However, on lever harps, each note has an independent “sharping lever”, which can raise that particular note by a half step.
This system only allows a halfstep of motion- each octave has to be sharpened if it is desired. In addition, the smaller body of the lever harp gives it a different overall tone than their big brothers.
