Best Harp Library

for new libraries, i'll personally say Cineharps and Berlin Harps. For old but still good sounding, I'll say ProjectSAM's Concert Harp.
That's what I'm still using. I think I have 5 harp libraries and have stuck with ProjectSAM's. If I get another (one of the new ones) it'll probably be Cineharps.

It all depends on the desired goal and the style of music. I saw harps with bright high frequencies that cuts through the mix. And there is with quite soft and deep sound, as my favorite - Concert Harp - ProjectSAM.

I really like the Orchestral Tools Sphere Harp. It comes with a gliss patch and playable patch. 3 mics and sound almost identical to the E.T./Williams Harp sound if you mix the mics right. Great stuff...

I'm a fan as well. I find both the Sphere harp and the Skalia harp from Spitfire have that extra quality that makes me happy to sit and listen to them for an extended period of time. When listening to sampled instruments in isolation I often get a sort of dull ear fatigue after a while.

Here are a few examples of various harps:

- XSample
- VSL Harp 1
- VSL Harp 2
- ProjectSAM
- OrangeTree Angelic
- Spitfire
- Orchestral Tools Sphere
- Pianoteq ("Do I Hear A Harp?")

Since making these examples, I've bought the Chocolate Audio Harps too, and I find them among the best, but I haven't made any demo files for them yet. If there is interest however, I will.

Amazing examples. What is you favorite one? To me, Spitfire, Orchestral Tools and VSL sound the best for orchestral use.
