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