    Detail & glistening beauty

    A detailed, beautiful harp library performed by London's leading harpist, Skaila Kanga, who has performed on countless blockbuster film scores. Instantly playable and ultra realistic. A comprehensive range of articulations and pedalling, with glisses in every key. In addition, we give you an otherworldly set of 'Harposphere' patches — beautiful pads and textures created from our original organic recordings.

    Spitfire Harp has been designed to blend effortlessly with our Symphonic and Chamber libraries, having been recorded in the same space — the world famous Hall at AIR Studios.
