Description: The library consists of “frightening” harp samples, which are well known to every lover of thrillers and horror films. Sounds with a mystical and slightly frightening tinge will come in handy when writing soundtracks and designing various content.
Horror Harp is a century old sampled harp that I inherited from my wife’s grandmother. When I learned about the history of the instrument – that guitar strings were strung on it during the Great Depression of the 1920s – I wanted to record it! Made from cracked and scratched old wood, this atonal instrument rumbles and growls with a distinct character. This harp has been bent, thumped, pricked, beaten, plucked, strummed and punished to produce terrifying, unique sounds you’ve never heard before. Horror Harp will add some uniqueness to your next horror product.
