Reviewed By huggorm [all]

Version reviewed: 2.1 on Windows

I was excited to find this plugin, looking for a tagelharpa instrument plugin for a long time. This looked perfect for my needs.

I wish I could give it the perfect score too. It has it's uses, but are stronger on percussion than melodic instruments.

Pros: Unique sounds. Huge potential.

Cons: Largely focused on percussion, the melodic instruments has little flexibility and range. Without articulations, the unique instruments have limited usability. Seems to take a lot of resources compared to samplers of same specifications.

A good plugin that has potential to be great.
