Note: I have HarpTime Fun, and have used the HarpTime Pro demo.

HarpTime is a truly beautiful instrument. It is very user-friendly, and sounds very alive and dynamic.

Of course, the question is 'Do I need a Harp VSTi?'

I think that anyone interested in plucked sounds with warmth and richness at least needs to give it a try, and then ask the question to yourself again. As it says on the website, the applications of HarpTime go beyond true Harp emulation (although IMO it does this very well) to find a place in any atmospheric musical odyssey. If you like film music, ambient and melodic IDM, you can also find a place for HarpTime in your music.

GUI- functional, but not the best Liqih GUI (I like his GUI work on Combosister, Morphing Delay, EVE and Mother Ship Astrobelt)

Sound- !!!!!!
With a wide range of physically modelled string types, and an intuitive set of parameters, it is next to impossible to make this thing sound bad.

Features- Enough to do what it has to do, and do it well. Here HarpTime Fun and Pro differ. I got Fun but I hope to upgrade to Pro eventually. Pro allows setting of tuning,timbre and pluck for each string. Fun has global controls for these parameters only.

Docs- totally adequate for the instrument, with some great links on all things Harp!

Presets- around 40 is enough for me. They demonstrate well the capabilities of HarpTime, and provide good starting points for user tweaking.

Customer Support- Liqih is one of the best.

VFM- Excellent.

Stability- no problems so far in Tracktion.
