Paris, France - December 12th, 2017 - UVI has released Nagoya Harp, a new instrument collection inspired by a beautiful stringed instrument capable of a range of sounds from guitar-like strums to harp plucks and bowed sustains. Nagoya Harp includes two variations: Strum, the classic instrument, aimed at more traditional sounds, and Keys, an expanded version incorporating modern and experimental playing techniques. To provide the highest fidelity and most natural response, over 20,000 samples were captured, delivering the delicate nuance and detail of the original instrument, while three fully-mixable mikes including a condenser, ribbon and tube allow for absolute control over your sound. Available now with the convenience and flexibility of modern software, you can experience these distinct ethnic timbres in a traditional context or explore the avant garde with genre-transcending tones.


For a traditional ethnic sound, Nagoya Harp’s Strum provides the classical playing technique of this stringed instrument. Experience an easy-to-play and truly realistic sound thanks to advanced performance scripts including strums, retriggers, hammer-ons, pull-offs and round-robins. Adjust the instruments tuning and key noise volume, as well as independent tune and volume control of the drone string. Customize your performance further with a variable-step velocity sequencer and select from a number of on-board effects including a convolver reverb, overdrive, EQ, chorus, phaser, delay, and reverb.


Taking this traditional instrument into the future is Nagoya Harp’s Keys. Utilize the same expressive performance scripting found on Strum but explore more avant-garde playing techniques with sticks, palm mutes, bow, high and low string configurations. Deeper control over the sound is provided with ADSR amplitude envelope, mono-mode with glide, a multi-mode filter, release volume, alternate and unison stereo modes and easy modwheel assignments of vibrato, tremolo, and filter. Capable of an immense range of sounds from percussive to plucked and sustained, clear and shimmering to densely tonal pads, Keys is a versatile and modern instrument at home in nearly any genre or production style.


Nagoya Harp offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of Falcon or the free UVI Workstation, providing comprehensive support for all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to three computers or iLok keys.


Nagoya Harp is available immediately at an introductory price of $49 / 49€ through December 18th, 2017 (regularly $79 / 79€) at the UVI online shop.
