Eccentric Autoharp contains samples that are both plucked and strummed from an Oscar Schmidt autoharp. Each of the 36 strings were sampled three times a piece and are mapped across the middle four octaves of the keyboard. The 12 chords of this autoharp were also sampled with three round robins.
When plucked, the autoharp has a very percussive sound that sits somewhere between a hammer dulcimer and a harpsichord. It can be used in anything from folk music to cinematic soundscapes. You can listen to a demo here: https://soundcloud.com/pureshift/sets/eccentric-autoharp-demos
