Unlike Harp 1, Harp 2 is played by Julia Reth and features an even larger number of single notes in various playing styles, such as damped, fingernail playing, “Près-de-la-table”, pedal glissandos and bisbigliandos – those whispering tender tremolos played on two strings of the same pitch that create a lovely ethereal effect.
Harp 2 is the ideal complement to Harp 1, reflecting the use of two harps in orchestral music since the mid 19th century.
The Standard Library and the Extended Library of Harp 2 combined contain the same samples and articulations as they appear on the Vienna Instruments Collection Harps. Please find a detailed list of included playing techniques under the menu item Sample Content.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
