Using Kontakt & Kontakt Player
This instrument has been around for centuries. It is, without a doubt, one of the first instruments crafted by human beings. Built as an instrument to inspire and devote people to their God, this is one of the truly mystical instruments. It’s sounds will teleport you to ancient times, to the cradle of the first civilizations where music was part of the ‘divine’.
This library spans history like none other we’ve produced and the ‘Nevel Harp’, with its original and authentic sound, compliments the Sonokinetic libraries collection and becomes a perfect addition to our musical heritage instruments.
The Nevel harp has been recorded by Sonokinetic using our state of the art resources to capture it in every sense. Multiple velocities, Round Robins, Runs, Tuning options, FX and a Sonokinetic signature Kontakt instrument users interface.
Sonokinetic has established a name as one of the best value & quality sample producers and with this product we like to underline that statement. We stick with our unbeatable pricing module and high quality sampling. This is an absolutely give away and hard to resist authentic ancient Harp library.
We’re proud to release “Nevel” and let it proliferate the inspirational unique sound of the Nevel Harp
The main UI for Nevel Harp consists of controls for EQ, Envelope & Reverb controls on the left. There are also 4 switches on the UI for selecting different articulations; either fingered, plucked, tempo-synced runs or FX. These articulations can also be selected with the 4 keyswitches at the very bottom of the keyboard from C2 to D#2.
Sample Envelope (ADR)
These control sliders can be used to adjust the natural attack, decay and release of the Nevel Harp. Switch this function on / off with the button on the left.
Biblical and Chromatic Scales
The Nevel Harp can be set to play two alternative scales, either Biblical or Chromatic, selectable from either the switch at the bottom of the interface or keyswitches F2 / G2. The Chromatic scale enables you to play all semitones from E4 to the F#5 an octave higher. Historically the Nevel Harp has been tuned to a ‘Biblical’ scale which offers a more authentic scale but with limited scope for traditional orchestration. Only the keys available to play will be highlighted on the keyboard in white:
We have included a full selection of tempo-synced runs in all keys, major and minor. Select these from the UI or with keyswitch D2 and the useable keys will be highlighted in green, yellow and blue:
Green = major chromatic scale
Yellow = minor chromatic scale
Blue = biblical scale
Press the root key of your chosen scale (for example green F for F major chromatic) and an appropriately scaled run will be triggered. The MOD wheel controls the speed of the run. Pull down for ½ speed and push up for normal speed.
There are a wide range of FX samples to choose from including unusual playing styles using the strings and tapping / hitting the taught skin of the Nevel Harp as a percussion instrument. Select these from the UI or with the keyswitch and the usable keys will be highlighted in white.
