I got a hold of a Ocean Harp for a few hours. It’s a relative to the Water Phone, yet maybe not quite as over used and or scary? I used a Share Stereo condenser on my phone as thats all I had at the time. That thing actually always sounds really good, to my ears at least. I bowed a bunch of longs, and swells. I then mapped them and pitched them up and down. I used random effects including a U.A. Eventide H3000 and a Roland Space Echo.
Reviews for Ocean Harp Swells
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Amazed with the sound!!! I will definitely use this library often going forward. I think this can be used together with other pad libraries.
Another amazing sound by Meltzer
comes as no surprise that this was made by Joshua. It's extremely beautiful and evolving and really does make me think of the ocean. The swell patch takes a while to fully swell but by the time it gets to fully volume it can get pretty piercing in the high end and even a little much in the mid sometimes. Since this comes in a multi i would recommend having the pad be the main sound and then mixing in the swells at a lower volume. Testing this out again for th review reminded me how awesome this is and i can't wait to use it in a track
The sound matches the name very well
Another great and quality sounding patch by Joshua. This Sometimes the high notes produce some harsh frequencies, so be sure to monitor that while mixing.
High End Fairy Dust
This is one of my go to secret weapons. Sounds wonderful in the high end and sits particularly nicely on strings and pads.
Not what I expected... better!
I thought this would be hydrophone type sounds, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear how lovely and tonal this library is. It sort of reminds me an an angelic choir, and I'll probably end up using it in that sort of context. Great stuff!
