The Lucky Harp is a meticulously recorded, and incredibly deeply sampled Celtic Harp recorded through the best high end gear including a Royer 121 and crystal clean preamps for a truly beautiful sound.
The instrument is recorded very dry with minimal ambience so you can add your own reverb (or use the included custom IR that suits the instrument) and in both diatonic (the instruments natural tones and range) and chromatic (extended notes and range).
Requires the full version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher.
