The Soundiron Waterharp is actually based on the capture of an instrument that is generally classified as a waterphone, which is essentially based on the original waterharp design invented by Richard Waters in the late 1960s, with minor physical shape and and tonal differences.The articulations include a variety of bows, a huge set of different mallets, metal devices, hands and other contraptions. The library also contains a variety of more experimental patches, including boiled water at four different temperature levels, hydrophone recordings (underwater microphones in the waterharp), magnets on waterharp and filling waterharp with metal screws and other goodies. This sample library pretty much covers just about every thinkable and unthinkable way you'd want to use/abuse a waterharp. All playable mallet programs contain between 5-10 velocity layers – and 6-10 round robin variations for maximum playability. In addition waterharp contains a bonus set of waterharp ambiences, including a large collection of unique patches (Kontakt 3 only) made by Steven Tavaglione (Instrumentalist and Sound Designer; Wall-E, American Beauty, CSI, Supernatural and 100s other movies/shows/games).

We bowed it, slapped it, struck it with a wide range of mallets and tools, burned it, boiled it, rolled it, sing through it, recorded it with underwater microphones, filled it with metal nails and shake it and so forth.
