Harp Glissando

Post by charlieonehorse » Mon Mar 31, 2008 3:21 am

I badly need a VSTi that can do a good harp glissando. Preferably much like the harps in Motion Picture Soundtrack by Radiohead. If for some reason you don't know the song here they are performing it live: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PES95QK76oc

Well, If you want the actual sound that they use - Im pretty sure its from a mellotron. So if you get G-Media's MTron, that exact sound will be in there. Other than that Try and Find a decent Harp soundfont and do the Gliss yourself.

"it features Yorke playing the harmonium, and sampled harp glissando by Jonny Greenwood".

It's a real harp, sampled.

there is a harp in the EIC. To simulate two hands with various fingers strumming it you can use delays. A harp is tuned in a scale, the tonality can be changed by the pedals. So just make a row of notes on the scale you need, and put a delay behind it.

Yea. I know. I want to know a place to get something with sampled harp. I'm liking mtron so far but I would have to get the expansion as well to be able to do glissandi. I'm not willing to shell out 300 bucks for a harp sound. Unfortunately there isn't a mac version on magesy.

I accidentally deleted my EIC files and can't re install. Is there a way I can download it?

did not know that. Theres actually a harp gliss on the Mellotron that sounds exactly like that, and i know that they have a few of them.
