The EastWest/Quantum Leap Hollywood Harp virtual instrument is a library designed to work together seamlessly with the Hollywood Orchestra series. While it includes many of the same features, there is a key difference outlined below.

  • The microphone configuration is designed for solo instruments, as opposed to a full orchestra. Instead of the surround and vintage surround microphone positions used in the Hollywood Orchestra series, the Hollywood Harp supplements the close and mid microphone positions with vintage alternatives.

This library contains a Harp with a multitude of articulations that a Harp is capable of including:

  • Glissandos in Majors, Minors and Modes
  • Harmonics
  • Bisbigliando
  • Nail Picks
  • Double Hits
  • Thumb Plucks
  • Pres de la table
  • Repetitions
  • Special FX

For further details on articulations, please see the Contents tab.

Hollywood Solo Harp can be purchased separately here in the Gold Edition, but also forms part of EastWest's Hollywood Solo Instruments Series:

The EastWest Hollywood Solo Instruments series is comprised of Hollywood Solo Harp, Hollywood Solo Cello and Hollywood Solo Violin.

These extensive libraries were recorded, engineered, and produced with the superior level of sound quality the EastWest brand is known for. Each of the instruments were recorded in Studio 1 at EastWest Studios, the same studio Hollywood Orchestra was recorded in.

This gives the complete Hollywood Orchestral series a consistent sound and ambience, which emulates a traditional large studio orchestra.

A wide variety of articulations were recorded for each instrument, focusing on typical solo instrumentation. In some cases, these various articulations are presented as separate instruments in PLAY’s Browser view. In other cases articulations are accessible via a key-switch instrument, where multiple articulations load as one instrument, and pressing a trigger key activates the current one.

These instruments can be used on their own or integrated into a larger orchestral framework with other titles in the Hollywood Orchestra Series. All these titles have been designed to work together to create an integrated orchestral sound. They were all...

  • Recorded in the same studio with many of the same microphones and positions
  • Engineered by Sound Engineer Shawn Murphy
  • Produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix
  • Programmed using the same practices and software

INDIVIDUAL ARTICULATION PATCHES:

The Individual Articulation folder contains instruments that are made up of a single articulation. They are programmed with multiple dynamic layers that are sensitive to MIDI Velocity. Below is a description of the articulation each instrument contains.

  • Bisbigliando
    These instruments employ a techinque of moving fingers back and forth across the strings in a light and rapid manner to produce a special tremolo effect.
  • Double Hit (Dbl Hit)
    A technique in which the note is played twice in quick succession.
  • Gliss Technique
    This is a technique in which the fingers slide acorss the strings to produce a fast scale.
  • Harmonics
    These instruments provide a way to modify the timbre of an instrument, or to reach notes normally out of an instrument's range. It is a note's partial, void of the fundamental frequency. This produces a timbre generally characterised as transparent and hollow.
  • Nail Pick
    A technique in which the player picks the string with their nail.
  • Pluck
    A traditional technique where the player plucks the string with their fingers
  • Pres de la table
    This is a French phrase which translates to "near the soundboard". The resulting sound is more dry and bright than produced with normal playing.
  • Repeition (Rep)
    The sound of a note re-triggered before the preceding note comes to rest. This sound is more realistic than just repeating the same note over and over from some other patch because you hear the continuity of the sound within the sample.
  • Thumb Pluck
    A traditional technique where the player plucks the string with their thumb.

 

FX:

The instruments in this folder include special FX and glissando performances. A single sample is mapped to each note and only white keys are used. For glissandos, a table is provided that details the MIDI note number to which each performance is mapped, as well as the root note and scale of the glissando.

  • FX
    This instrument contains a variety of unusual FX that a Harp can produce. It includes various scrapes, hits and otherwise non-traditional techniques.
  • Gliss Angelic
    This instrument contains a variety of overlapping glissando performances that span multiple octaves.
