I had a chance to try out the Bollywood Harmoniums. I think it's no better than the other VST harmoniums in the market. I noticed some keys (notably the lower C notes) are off tuned and plays with different timbre when the coupler is engaged. There are three master samples, but you would be able to tweak the reed dynamics of only one of the masters which I found strange. There are some effects samples not much use for someone who is looking for an authentic Indian harmonium sounds.


Dear Friend, .

Thanks a lot for your review and some points, Sorry for delay in reply.

About Tuning

We have sent new samples update in which you ll get western tempered tuned samples. Hopefully you must have received it. Earlier it was tuned to natural Indian Tuning.

When coupler is activated - A lower octave note plays by itself to give extra bass. This is how coupler works in real Indian harmonium instrument. (Please note coupler will play this extra bass under particular range of keys, which make sense)

Please note :

The master patch is main harmonium patch with all the three reeds, You can control the dynamics of all patches via Modwheel, The real harmonium is not key sensitive.

About Sound design patch

They are loved by many users and we also wanted to push the capability of harmonium sounds. Many Indian composer may ask why should we use sampled products if real harmoniums players are so easily available that too with proficient players. - There are many reasons but I'm sure you ll be able to give your themes typical Indian feel through this library and sound design patches are new sounds for Indian audience as well sound design lovers.

Can you please see if this harmonium is sounding like typical Indian Harmonium or not? - This product is now being used by many composers now.
