• Release Time Parameter: determines the time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level to zero (silence) level when it is released.

• Pitch Bend: The Pitch Bend knob directly changes the pitch of the selected instrument.

  • Pitch Bend center position: is normal pitch.

  • Pitch Bend down: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved to the left.

  • Pitch Bend up: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved the right.

• Low-Frequency Oscillator Controls: These knobs apply LFO modulation to the selected instrument. Use the ‘Rate’ (Frequency) and ‘Depth’ (Amplitude) knobs to adjust the LFO effect as required. By using the LFO to modulate various aspects of the audio signal, you can apply effects such as vibrato or tremolo.

• Virtual Reverb Room built-in: Free variation of acoustic ambience thanks to complete separation of instrument and room. Small rooms can be modeled as well as large spaces.

Filter Section: The switch includes: LP (Low pass), BP (Band pass), HP (High pass), notch, peak, low pass and high pass shelving filter with adjustable cutoff frequency and bandwidth.

• Volume: Adjusts the volume of the instrument.

The pre-recorded glissandi may be played conveniently on C4-B4 key range of MIDI keyboard, however on upper and lower notes can give unusual or quirky sounds that add an extra dimension to your playing.

Chordophonet Virtual Harp and Hammered Dulcimer VST Software

1.- Concert harp: Also known as 'Pedal Harp' is a large and technically modern harp, designed primarily for classical music and played either solo, as part of a chamber ensemble, or in an orchestra.

2.- Celtic harp: The Celtic harp is a triangular harp traditional to Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is known as a telenn in Breton, cláirseach in Irish, clàrsach in Scottish Gaelic and telyn in Welsh. In Ireland and Scotland, it was a wire-strung instrument requiring great skill and long practice to play, and was associated with the Gaelic ruling class. It appears on the coins and coat of arms of the Republic of Ireland.

3.- Electric harp: Electric harps are based on their acoustic originals. There are both solid-body and hollow body electro-acoustic models available. True electric harps have a solid body versus a hollow body electro-acoustic harp, which can be played either acoustically or electronically. A true electric solid-body harp cannot be played acoustically since it has no hollow soundbox, and must be amplified when played.

4.- Synth Harp: a synthesizer harp with physically-modeled strings.

5.- Hammered dulcimer: most frequently but not always trapezoidal in shape, with many strings struck by handheld "hammers". This type of instrument is found in many cultures, especially in England, in the British Isles and in the north of continental Europe. Most countries have their own name for the instrument, for instance in Thailand it is called a khim, in India it is called Santoor and many have different tuning systems. Being a struck string instrument, it is considered to be among the ancestors of the piano.

6.- Electric Hammered Dulcimer: They come in a number of different sizes, styles and types, and use a pickup to amplify the sound.
