This instrument originated when I found that this wine glass generated a perfect (+-10 cents) C5. The sound file was recorded with a simple Zoom H1 in my wife’s walk-in closet and sampled in Logic. Would you please give it a go with something like Mozart’s Adagio and Rondo for glass harmonica as inspiration? Be sure to use Spitfire Audio instruments for the flute, oboe, viola, and cello:)

Amazing and Abstract
Absolutely beautiful and dreamy sound. Definitely agree with another review that I didn't think of it as much like a harp.. but that doesn't matter once I get used to it. The glass sound can be soothing and pretty, or in another setting dark and unsettling. Excellent sound!
Lots of character
It's not like the real deal, but by adding some good impulse reverb and maybe tweaking the color a bit you can get quite a result. Definitely charming and a delight to play
Excellent, useful smooth sound.
I was working on a cover project which required exactly this instrument. Easy to use, and great fun. An excellent addition to anybody's setup.
Mellow but resonant tones
These glass sounds are pretty beautiful and mellow most of the time. There are nice controls in the GUI which allow you to turn the sound into either a soft pluck or more of a washy sound. It does get a little resonant for me on some of the higher notes but the mid range is really beautiful. This instrument could add alot of character to a wide variety of things. Scores, electronic music, ambient. Etc. It could also be a cool drone drenched in reverb.
Useful for soft music
The character of this instrument is very special, I will surely use it for future compositions. The GUI is useful, but could be more readable.
